VOTER SUPPRESSION IS AN INTENDED AND PURPOSEFUL VULGAR AND INSIDIOUS "TOOL" USED BY WHITE AMERICAN RACISTS DIRECTED AT BLACK PEOPLE AND BROWN PEOPLE IN THESE "NOT YET" UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
From the founding of this Racist country, White Americans Christian Racists certainly had no intention of allowing enslaved persons, whose hue of skin was Black, the Right to Vote. They also never intended to allow Indigenous people, whose land they TOOK, to vote. Voting was to be the domain of White male property owners -remember slaves were property.
We are seeing some of the most blatant forms of White American Christian Racist Vote suppression. I say White Christian because White Christians obviously support Voter Suppression and Racism because I do not read or hear or see White American Christians speaking up and out about this Wanton Disrespect of Black Americans' Right To Vote. And again, don’t ask me stand and hold hands and sing an Insignificant “Kumbayah” when you cower in your "do-gooder" religious corner afraid to speak.
Voting is perhaps the cornerstone of American Democracy. It IS a Freedom and a Right, NOT a Privilege.
When you read where White Secretaries of State from various states in the South and outside of the South are coming up with deviously blatant ways to keep Black folks and Brown folks and Native American Indians from voting all under the guise of “protecting your right to vote," you ask yourself why. The Obvious and Explicit answer is, Obvious and Explicit Racism.
The bastardization of Democracy has always been a part of White America’s Racism---which translates to control---over Blacks in this country. If Racist Whites can keep us from voting BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY-Voter Suppression NOW-they continue all components of their "Racist control narrative" which they saw eroding during the Civil Rights Movement.
Racists lied and killed and distorted and suppressed to gain exactly what America is TODAY, a White Racist country on the verge of getting rid of Democracy.
