Republicans’ voter suppression laws are targeting the voting rights of people of color. It’s modern-day Jim Crow. We’re working to pass the #ForThePeople Act and #RestoreTheVRA to fight it and renew democracy. Hear it from @staceyabrams :
Twenty-one prominent black leaders openly denounced Democrats’ "despicable smear campaign" trying to portray Georgia’s new election laws as a return to Jim Crow.
Supporters of the new law and its ID requirements say that likening it to Jim Crow-era regulations is absurd.
The biggest attack on voting rights since Jim Crow is underway as we speak. Republicans have introduced 253 voter suppression bills in 43 states. This is the real cancel culture you should be worried about.
The filibuster was never in the constitution, originated mostly by accident, and has historically been used to block civil rights. No legislatures on earth have a supermajority requirement because that’s stupid and paralyzing. It’s time to trash the Jim Crow filibuster.
Calling us "animals" has been the language to justify slavery, Jim Crow and all manner of injustice. Dehumanization and racism go together
