Racism is a force behind refusal to accept election’s result
The driving force behind Republicans’ refusal to accept the presidential election results is racism. Despite the 15th Amendment and the Voting Rights Act, many GOP politicians can’t accept that Blacks have the right to vote. They seem to consider Blacks unqualified to vote and hold office. They can’t concede that multiracial coalitions elected Obama twice and made Trump a one-term president. This explains why Republicans’ bogus fraud claims focus on predominantly Black cities. Georgia Republican leaders plan to leverage these claims to make it even harder for Blacks to vote. This is outrageous. Georgia already has some of the country’s most draconian voting restrictions. Just ask voters who have been purged from the rolls – or Gov. Kemp, who introduced many of these restrictions, which helped get him elected. We must resist these efforts. Disenfranchising Blacks erodes our common birthright of democracy for all Americans.
