Jackson protests apar
Compiled by DAVID R. RANKIN
GREENSBORO -- The Rev. Jesse Jackson rallied
an estimated 5,000 college students in Greensboro
last Wednesday in an anti-apartheid protest at the
same time that North Carolina National Bank officials
announced that the corporation would stop
an loans to South Africa.
Several thousand demonstrators, many of them
N'.C. A&T State University''students, followed "
Jackson to the NCNB office in downtown
Greensboro, where Jackson telephoned bank officials
in Charlotte and asked them to cut financial
ties to South Africa.
"Take the profit out of apartheid," Jackson said
to the students. "When you take the money out,
you take the motivation out."
NCNB stopped lending money to the South
African government in February. The bank said last
. week that it would stop lending money to the
private sector also.
Justice Department at
WASHINGTON -- Several key members of Congress
and the Republican National Committee
recently filed briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court opposing
the Reagan administration in a major voting
rights case concerning North Carolina. Among
them was Sen. Robert Dole, a Kansas Republican.
The briefs said the administration had misstated
the intent of the Voting Rights Act concerning a
redistricting plan for North Carolina.
A panel of federal judges overruled the redistricting
plan, which was implemented by the North
Carolina Legislature last year. The federal judges
said the plan diluted the power of black voters.
The Justice Department stepped in on the side of
the Legislature against blacks who said their voting
power had been hurt by redistricting in a way to
give whites an advantage.
Republican officials said that districting that
limits black representation also hurts Republican
chances in Democratic states in the South.
The redisricting plan was prepared by the mostly
Black couple robs n

Jackson later went to A&T and asked the university's
trustees to officially forbid any university investment
in South Africa and to support divestiture
of such investments by other universities.

tacks votine rights
Democratic Legislature based on the 1980 census.
Three Federal judges ruled last year that the plan
harmed black voters because even though it would
have been possible to draw some districts with black
majorities, most of the districts had white majorities.
Republicans argued that the districting plan
hurt Republican interests.
The Justice Department said during last year's
case that the Voting Rights Act was designed to
assure access to the electoral process and "not to
assure victories for minority candidates." The
department said that nothing in the Voting Rights
Act permitted election boundaries that assured that
blacks would be elected.
The Republican National Committee's decision
to oppose the Justice Department in this case appears
to show resistance to the administration's civil
rights policies. The Reagan administration's position
on civil rights has been under criticism from the
Democrats, and this criticism is now spreading to
the Republicans as well.
