NEW YORK -- When Thandie Newton trained her alluring smile on Tom Cruise in "Mission Impossible 2," I asked myself: "What's happening here?" For two hours, Ms. Newton, a gorgeous black actress, has both the villain of the movie and its world-famous movie star wrapped around her finger.

Because amendments to the Voting Rights Act and court rulings suggest that states that can create new congressional districts with a majority of minority voters should do so, there is pressure in Maryland and elsewhere to search for ways to accomplish it. Here it would be the Fifth District, largely Prince George's County, that would be recontoured to elect a black candidate. In its present boundaries, the Fifth is about 44 percent black.The Maryland Republican Party has produced a redistricting map in which the Fifth would be 56 percent black.

FOR YEARS now, the same regrettable scene has played itself out repeatedly all over the country.A young black man is beaten or killed by the police -- usually after having committed a crime -- and a large group of black people march on city hall or police headquarters, demanding justice.Consider Ernest Sayon, who died in police custody on April 29 after he had been arrested at the scene of a drug deal in a public housing project on Staten Island, N.Y.Or the scuffle in January at a Harlem mosque.
