    if i were to grade the progress that we've made in the area of voting rights since Dr King's day, i would grade it very low. we need to stop discrimination particularly in southern states

    there's been tremendous progress in electing African Americans to political office. Harris, Booker, Obama, Stacy Abrams is gonna be Governor Of Georgia. but that's not enough. that doesn't fix the problem.

    all types of conniving methods are still being used to prevent blacks from becoming registered voters. read the newspaper.

    President Trump is apathetic and capitulating to his base, the Southern Dixiecrats, when we desperately need NEW civil rights legislation!

    Watch me utterly DESTROY this thread...In 2012, Black voter participation had actually surpassed white voter participation, as it represented 13 percent of the overall national vote, matching its proportion to the population. :auiqs.jpg:
