I know this is old but IMO it's real and relavent. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CCYQFjAB&url=http://www.theroot.com/views/black-voters-told-relax-don-t-vote&ei=eSBUULzBJ-GaiAK-jIGIBQ&usg=AFQjCNEyZpGZ-lXwW0SCo3LOBZXvSFNUxw&sig2=uuJ4pEPx8gNDkzB2iZTdzQ Several states that are controlled by republicans have been aggressive in passing laws,and trying to get laws passed that will make it hard for blacks to vote. Those that support these laws claim that it is needed to prevent voter fraud. But looking at this article, and the actions of the republicans they are the ones guilty of voter fraud. This is nothing new, it wasn't that long ago that the Voting Rights Act passed (1965) which did away with voter suppression, or so we thought. Here it is today, they have pulled out some of their old tricks. To be honest, they knew right where to hit us. Peace!
