Court Ruling on Redistricting

The U.S. Supreme Court justices ought to have their heads examined for their decision on redistricting in Los Angeles County (“High Court Clears Way for Vote in 1st District,” Metro, Dec. 11). The whole theme of America is based on freedom and equality--where each and every person has an equal chance regardless of race, color, religion, sex or age. America is a melting pot of all people on this planet.

Why do Latinos need to have “their” district? Aren’t they Americans of Latino descent just like the rest of us who are proud Americans descended of European, African, Asian and every other country of this world?

If you don’t like who your elected representatives are, then vote them out, but don’t create ethnic “ghetto government” for “Latinos only.” That’s un-American and will only divide people.
