Only in Georgia

Call the Waaaahm-bulance. Black leaders in Georgia government are suing to reverse the city charters of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Milton, Johns Creek, Chattahoochee Hills and the county (re)creation of Milton, saying (wait for it)… they are too white.

The Georgia Legislative Black Caucus and others say the state has illegally created “super-majority white neighborhoods” in several cities in Fulton and DeKalb counties that dilute the black vote in those areas.

The lawsuit, which also includes the Rev. Joseph Lowery, names Gov. Nathan Deal in his capacity as governor and seeks to void the charters of the newly-created cities of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, Milton and Chattahoochee Hills and prevent the creation of Milton County — which they claim “supplanted the fully functional and racially balanced county government.”

Read the whole thing. I’ll wait for you to catch your breath. I don’t know which is funnier, the lawsuit, or that last sentence. Fully functional? Ever try to handle a parking ticket in Fulton County? Heh. Racially balanced? I’m not even going to touch that one.

Let’s see how just how new these “newly-created” offensive enclaves are:
– Dunwoody, 2008
– Sandy Springs, 2005
– Milton, 2006
– Johns Creek, 2006
– Chattahoochee Hills, 2007

The youngest of these “newly-created” cities is 4 years old!

Laughable. The whole idea is frivolous and nothing but a publicity stunt.

Hey, wait, which one of the plaintiffs is running for office next election? There’s your answer.

    Oh I LOVE this!! The idiots! But, sadly, that is the norm for Georgia. “WE WANT TO BE EQUAL!!…Hey wait….I changed my mind because if we’re equal we can’t sue you for anything…”

    I shake my head sadly as I leave GA behind and attempt to find a less idiotic government….

    With our current leader, that’s going to be a few years from now…
