Voting rights groups sue Georgia & Brian Kemp to reinstate 53,000 blocked registrations, 70% are Black
Not well enough it seems, and I also overestimated the US constitution. It’s incomprehensible from my perspective, here restricting voting rights requires a constitutional change, which is a very long, multi parliament process requiring super majorities either side of a general election. No court could do it. And no political party will even mention it. Just unheard of.
I did learn a few things here and that’s never a bad thing, but it’s also made me more disillusioned with the US. A draw, I guess.
Have a listen to Fannie Lou Hamer describing her experience of registering to vote in Mississippi:
The USA has never been a real democracy.
