Neither the existing sytem or the proposed remedy is fair to political minorities. one of the fundamental maxims fo american elections is "one man one vote." This county is using a "one man 5 votes" rule. This lets a 51% voting block grab 100% of the seats. The correct solution is to give every voter 1 vote, not 5. That way if 1/3 of the voters vote as a bloc for a black candidate, she wins. We'd get a more diverse council. Changing to winner-take all districts institutionalizes existing segregation housing patterns while provising less diversity than a one person one vote system.
