They made the genius decision to basically gut the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Ya know, the one that gave Blacks the right to vote...yea, that little thing.
They gave 9 states, the freedom to change up the election laws without getting the okay from the federal government.
The best part of all this, is the states that they deemed responsible enough to have this power.....you ready for this?
ALABAMA, Alaska, ARIZONA, GEORGIA, LOUISI-FREAKING-ANA, MISSISSIPPI (WTF!!), SOUTH CAROLINA, TEXAS AND VIRGINA..........
Do you feel like you got knocked in the head with a stupid stick?
Yea, I felt that way too.
How can this be happening...and of all the shitty times too!!!
Racism is rearing its UGGG-UU-LLLYYY head....it's EVERYWHERE right now. And now this....its a sucker punch. A slap in the face.
It's a shame....because the WRONG PEOPLE are going to take this as a victory. They are going to see this as the government being "back on their sides".....and they are going to lose their fucking minds.
I will not cower from my neighbors....I WILL BE ACCEPTED, because that's how it should be.
Black, white, hispanic...gay, lesbian, transgendered.....I see, accept and LOVE you all!!!!
