When the will of all legal Georgia voters is carried out via the ballot box, Georgia can be more robust, safer, and more accountable to the State’s citizens. It is a fact: The best remedy to mitigate voter disenfranchisement is to make sure there are free and fair elections devoid of fraud.
Conversely, it is wholly racist to undermine fair and fully accountable elections willfully. Recent polling confirms this fact. Rasmussen polls recently confirmed that over two-thirds of Black voters (approx. 70%) support voter ID laws. Black voters understand that voter fraud undermines black voices; this is the most prevalent form of voter disenfranchisement. When black voices are silenced, all “Black life” is damaged in general.
Is the lack of election integrity racist?
Admittedly, most people don’t usually consider a lack of election integrity to be racist. But when you contemplate the purposeful silencing of voices and nullify those voices (via illegal voting), it becomes more apparent. One of the worst affronts to our collective dignity is the active undermining of our vote. Yet, we have been witnessing active schemes designed to enshrine voter fraud to assure specific prescribed political outcomes (HR 1 is a perfect example of this).
In the past, voter disenfranchisement generally referred to any disproportional barriers that would prevent certain communities from expressing themselves via their vote. Often, people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would express outrage about blacks being disenfranchised when seemingly onerous conditions like voter ID’s and lack of convenient access to voting booths/stations were disproportional as compared to other communities. While there have been tremendous strides made by all States providing universal and free access to personal identification cards and wider access to polling places, there continues to a neutralizing factor that still mutes Black voices and Black choices in every election. The epitome of Black voter disenfranchisement is when Black votes are muted (not properly weighed and counted) because they are“neutralized” via acts of illegal, fraudulent votes! This is the ultimate disenfranchisement, and it must end.
The Biden Administration
Under the guise of “racial disparities,” we’ve heard Biden recently insinuating that blacks are somehow too inept and need special consideration to use the internet to take actions like registering for vaccinations and/or to vote. By definition, this is racist and insulting! Look at the total contradictions where so many people recognize ID cards are needed to get a job, get into Govt offices, get prescriptions, get healthcare, drive a car, go on an airplane or train, buy alcohol, get a bank account, cash a check, buy cigarettes, buy a house or rent an apartment, get a cell phone, graduate from college, apply for a loan, travel or to do almost ANYTHING – but then they claim blacks are just too inept (or stupid) to accommodate getting identification to vote. These propagandist talking points are insulting and manifestly racist! People who imply blacks lack the common sense to do what it takes to vote are the confirmed racists pushing diabolical deeds designed to silence and nullify legitimate votes of black Americans. It is time to hold all accountable for these inaccurate, insulting, and quite degrading tropes directed at the black community! It is time we insist that the most effective way to become an “anti-racist” in this regard is to ensure timely and accurate accounting for all legal votes. All legal votes matter!
MLB decision about Georgia
Instead of Major League Baseball (MLB) and other companies moving venues and threatening Georgians, they should redouble efforts to expand services in Georgia. The MLB alone was destined to bring over $190,000,000 in commerce during the MLB All-Star festivities; this represents tens of thousands of employment opportunities for Georgians! The Georgia employment segment is made up of majority-minority; blacks are the overwhelming majority of minority employment in Georgia. This means blacks are disproportionally harmed by MLB and other companies who think it’s more important to socially preen about being “woke,” instead of encouraging even more safeguards for voters. If MLB and other companies were truly concerned about helping and supporting black lives, they would applaud the changes in Georgia voting laws that ensure every legal vote’s accuracy. They would expand to even more venues in Georgia!
