‘Why us?’ Black Belt counties struggle with state of Alabama casino legislation

The Alabama House does not have casino legislation on its calendar during the final day of the legislative session. Lowndes County, the fourth smallest county in Alabama and among its poorest, was left out of state's casino plans. The county's population is 74% Black. The omission of Lowden County prompted the question from officials, "Why us?" It's probably because the county has less political clout in a state Legislature ruled by Republicans. "Blacks and bingo will lose because they have less legislative artillery". "The battle in the state is between various special interests".
