"The moderate wing of the Democratic Party has got their history wrong about where the filibuster comes from. It is a Jim Crow era relic," Heather McGhee says. "It's one of the many ways that structural racism is holding back the hands of progress. Not just for people of color"

Kevin McCarthy voted to throw out millions of Black votes on January 6th. He had pushed House Republicans back 50 years into the Jim Crow Era. What American company can ever afford to contribute again to McCarthy’s New Jim Crow Party?

America is still waiting to learn which party will control the next US Senate — all due to Georgia’s peculiar election system rooted in the Jim Crow era. #GASen 

what i mean is the political economy of jim crow beyond simply segregation —one party governance, clientelism, reactionary populism, extreme labor exploitation — is very relevant for thinking about the united states in the 21st century

relatedly, it is...a problem that so many people understand jim crow as simply extreme discrimination rather than as a one-party authoritarian enclave whose political influence extended throughout the country.

GOP is beyond repair. It is no longer an Edmund Burke party of Conservatives. It is just Jim Crow excreta.

Republican judges killed large parts of the bill that killed Jim Crow—the Voting Rights Act—and now Republicans are trying to recreate one-party, Jim Crow-style states by either making it harder to vote or straight up disenfranchising people not based on race but party ID.

You definitely have a point there Donnie Boy. The Democratic Party that lead the confederacy and then pushed Jim Crow laws in the South no longer exists. We know that you miss that Democratic Party, but most folks don't.

When I was a kid growing up in the '70s, the John Birch Society seemed like a fringe relic of the age of lynch mobs and Jim Crow. Now, under Trump, the entire Republican party is much worse - crueler, more ignorant, more murderous, and even more blatantly racist - every day.
