Angry and tired. And tired of being angry. Still in The Struggle.

Haiti was founded out of the *only* successful revolt by enslaved Black people

in the Americas. They drove the French out in 1804, declared themselves independent, and founded the country. This, in turn, inspired many anti-slavery revolutionaries, including Nat Turner and John Brown. Jefferson worried of Haiti's uprising because they were the second successful revolution against European powers, following the US, and refused to recognize their statehood. Not hard to imagine he, knowing the glaring omission of his own revolution, feared successful slave revolts in the US, starting with his own plantation.

Redistricting is based on population demographics.

Bobert lives near the I-70 corridor, which has seen significant growth since the last time the districts were defined, and generally leans Democratic as has Colorado as a whole for the last 10-15 years. Also, the committee is made up of four Dems, four Repugs, and four Independents, none of whom can have a career in politics or lobbying. So the Independents probably balance it out.
