SUMMARY: For many white Americans the right to vote is seemingly implicit, but the reality is that there has been, and continues to be, a focused effort to suppress voting – especially in communities of color. In fact, America was founded on voter suppression as only property owning white men could vote when the Constitution was penned. A large part of voter suppression through poll taxes, literacy tests and disenfranchisement laws were racially motivated while voter purging, voter ID laws and limiting the number of polling places continue to target the poor and minorities in modern times. So, what can we do about it? Vote. Note that here is a f-bomb at the 1 hour 26 minute mark.
KEY QUOTE: “The fundamental power of democracy lives in the right to vote. If you protect that right, you create possibilities for everything else.”
