I could have just taken the word of the left and went on about my racist ways.
That's always the best option. NEVER ask the subject of the claim, just take a politician's word for it. Stop being so naive, ND!
Who loves ya, baby?

They could just extend the voting to two days in this country instead of one for major elections. It is hard for a lot of people to get to vote. I have no problem with people getting ballots mailed to them if they go in and show ID and apply for it ahead of time...everyone should have ID to vote, but that could be done when signing up for abscentee ballots....that will make sure that there is less fraud in voting, the mail in voting has way too much potential for fraud.
Also, they could put those drop off boxes so people everywhere could get them. Of course, cameras should be mounted to show how many people dropped off ballots to make sure that multiple ballots are not dropped off by one person...two ballots, no problem, even maybe three. But if the same face pops up dropping off ballots five times a day...something is wrong. No masks allowed.

imagine being the child or granchild of a slave who had their native language beaten out of them and was litterally beaten if caught trying to learn . now imagine the knowledge being passed down through the generations of slaves . it is clearly going to be inadequate as learning was forbidden.
while a white child will likely learn a family business money management etc . it is highly likely the children an grandchildren of slave were learning how to stay alive and definitely learning how to not p off their x masters who were burning crosses and publicly hanging them . the schooling system where "black" people were couldn't learn alongside white people and got a demonstrably lower standard of education.
put anybody through systematic abuse like that a majority of them will stay in the ghetto not have the i d to vote and maybe even lead alternative lifestyles .
given the same start in life my people would do a lot better and have normal things like id . on top of that when we better ourselves people get scared and try break us down . research black wallstreet . my people are not stupid or inadequate . we've been robbed of the basics required for a normal life
