SDUT: Supervisors’ shameless self-preservation

If a UT editorial can see the problem, why can't the Board of Supervisors? Maybe they can but won't do anything until challenged.

We don’t see these decisions as driven by racism. Instead, they’re fueled by politicians’ desire for self-preservation. That distinction, however, hardly insulates the board from a Voting Rights Act challenge. Such a challenge now seems inevitable – and welcome.
