Rep. Cecil Brown (D - Jackson) speaks against the Denny map
Rep. Cecil Brown: Compares the time it took Rep. Scott to draw her plan versus the time it took Rep. Denny to draw his plan. That's because the objective of Rep. Denny was to draw out white Democrats. It's an inherently political process, so he has the right to do that. But he did it by drawing out all influence districts. To the white Democrats who might be afraid of what the Republicans are going to do to you, what more could they possibly do? Courts will ultimately decide how this will end, and nobody in the world can tell you what will happen. Your vote today has no impact on whether or not we will have legislative elections this year. Denny map will diminish African-American inflluence in Mississippi.
