“Jim Crow 2.0 is about two insidious things: voter suppression and election subversion.  It’s no longer about who gets to vote; it’s about making it harder to vote.  It’s about who gets to count the vote and whether your vote counts at all.”
Joe Biden during a speech in Atlanta this week

Today’s read is from Derek Hunter, a Washington, DC based writer, radio host and political strategist. His column gets a standing ovation from me. Here’s an excerpt:

Believe it or not, we all used to vote on one day in this country.

Now you can vote absentee because you want to. If you are one of the few people in the country who somehow can’t afford a photo ID, your state will give you one for free. If, after all of that (and a lot more), you still can’t comply with voter integrity laws, do the world a favor and don’t vote.

Read the entire column, and it’s a beauty, here.
