RE: Thoughts on the White Power Movement
Would the Borg qualify as a "race"?

BTW, the only real race on this planet is Paris-Dakar.

There's actually only one race on this planet --

The Vulcans already made contact. They raised an eyebrow and left us to our own devices.

The Borg began as human. I read the big novel where it showed their beginning and eventual destruction.

It is absurd to believe that anyone is being denied to vote because they are black.

The election process is corrupt, and the problem is that black people believe that they need to take advantage of the legendary corrupt system and "stuff the box." Again, for blacks it is not about fixing any problems with any system - it's about using the corrupt powers to advance their politicians to their self prosperity on the backs of their black constituency.

During the 1964 presidential election I saw people we knew were Kluxers sitting across the street from the poling stations in their pickup trucks with the Easy Rider Rifle Racks. They had cameras ready. That was enough to keep blacks away.

Wow. Freakin' educate yourself, man.

Attempts continue to this day to threaten people with the specter of arrest (because the government doesn't tell people when they have warrants, and communities of color are often afraid to present their IDs, lest they find out the hard way that they're wanted, which can happen easily due to the "Name Three Go Free"-type programs in which drug offenders are pressured to give names to police, any names, in order to get a reduced sentence) has been ongoing since the white supremacist sympathizers lost the ability to actually do it with the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965. The presence of the Panthers is a message that they won't allow the cops to intimidate voters-- they really don't, but the people often don't know that the propaganda are lies, and so the visible presence of a black power group is reassuring and likely to increase the turnout.

That's pretty good - I believe it. I doubt that it happened so efficiently that it adversely effected any election, or civil services to the demographic population that you describe as being disenfranchised.
Gasp

I mean what is their grievance - they didn't get to vote for corrupt politicians who don't want anything to do with them??? Were the politicians willing to bail them out of a trial???

Would you like to see gangster-wanna-bes and psychotics endorsing politicians?!?!?!

To be fair, this is my grievance, too.

Edit to Add: It doesn't matter whether or not it actually changes/ed the outcome of a vote, you know, though it's impossible to know how many WOULD turn out and how they would vote if completely unfettered by this history and recent US policing policy. It matters that people in this country think it's acceptable to suppress the votes of a group they actively work against (or who perceive them as such, and thus vote against) in order to try to win at any cost... that cost being actual democracy.

Regardless of the appearance, I applaud any effort to guarantee that everyone who is eligible to vote feels free to do so, openly and without fear, and so I support the groups who try to do that, and fight against attempts to paint them as influencing the vote in the other direction through intimidation. Influencing the vote by ensuring people CAN vote is Democracy 101.

You don't have a warrant.

You should work on the compromise legislation for those who have served their time and demonstrated good "humanist/atheist" citizenship.
