The 60s was a time of virulent supression of demoracy here, while preaching the lie of spreading it abroad,
but we battled for the voting rights act, rather then just give up,
and now 50 plus years later, the GOP are trying tricks to keep us as well as poor whites and hispanics from voting,
and this crap should be opposed as well.

All of their desperate monkey business, before 2012 shows how much they fear our vote!

Malcolm mentioned this, at a time when the Dixiecrats were the Christian Right Wing,
and Neocon war Hawks of the time, so no he is not talking about supporting repulicans, and we can imagine wht he would say about,
Mr. Cain!



I was in Washington, D.C., a week ago Thursday, when they were debating whether or not they should let the bill come onto the floor. And in the back of the room where the Senate meets, there's a huge map of the United States, and on that map it shows the location of Negroes throughout the country. And it shows that the Southern section of the country, the states that are most heavily concentrated with Negroes, are the ones that have senators and congressmen standing up filibustering and doing all other kinds of trickery to keep the Negro from being able to vote. This is pitiful. But it's not pitiful for us any longer; it's actually pitiful for the white man, because soon now, as the Negro awakens a little more and sees the vise that he's in, sees the bag that he's in, sees the real game that he's in, then the Negro's going to develop a new tactic.
These senators and congressmen actually violate the constitutional amendments that guarantee the people of that particular state or county the right to vote. And the Constitution itself has within it the machinery to expel any representative from a state where the voting rights of the people are violated. You don't even need new legislation. Any person in Congress right now, who is there from a state or a district where the voting rights of the people are violated, that particular person should be expelled from Congress. And when you expel him, you've removed one of the obstacles in the path of any real meaningful legislation in this country. In fact, when you expel them, you don't need new legislation, because they will be replaced by black representatives from counties and districts where the black man is in the majority, not in the minority.
If the black man in these Southern states had his full voting rights, the key Dixiecrats in Washington, D. C., which means the key Democrats in Washington, D.C., would lose their seats. The Democratic Party itself would lose its power. It would cease to be powerful as a party. When you see the amount of power that would be lost by the Democratic Party if it were to lose the Dixiecrat wing, or branch, or element, you can see where it's against the interests of the Democrats to give voting rights to Negroes in states where the Democrats have been in complete power and authority ever since the Civil War. You just can't belong to that Party without analyzing it.
I say again, I'm not anti-Democrat, I'm not anti-Republican, I'm not anti-anything. I'm just questioning their sincerity, and some of the strategy that they've been using on our people by promising them promises that they don't intend to keep. When you keep the Democrats in power, you're keeping the Dixiecrats in power.

"African-American voters have to pay attention to their state voting laws because they may find some rude awakenings when they try to vote next year, particularly if they haven't voted in any election since 2008,” Neil Foote, editor and co-founder of PoliticsInColor.com, told BlackAmericaWeb.com Wednesday.

“These new laws in several states may raise the hurdles for some, requiring government-issued IDs, which needs to be taken care of now - not on Election Day,” Foote said. “The sad part is that these rules are crudely designed to confuse, scare and hamper strong turnouts of African-Americans and Hispanics, a critical block of voters that President Obama will need to get re-elected."
The new voting laws are part of a wave of new laws enacted by Republican-controlled legislatures this year. Supporters say the rules are needed to ensure honest elections.
But Democrats say it's part of a concerted GOP campaign to suppress the vote. They say minorities, students, the poor and disabled — those most likely to vote Democratic — will be hurt the most.
"This is about putting up obstacles to legal voters being able to exercise the franchise," Scot Ross, executive director of One Wisconsin Now, an advocacy group that opposes the changes, told NPR. "That is the scheme that the Republicans have concocted on this."
Ross told NPR that tens of thousands of Wisconsin voters lack the photo ID that will now be required in that state. He says many of them will also have difficulty traveling to motor vehicle offices to get free ID cards available under the law.

v11 States Trying Really Hard to Keep Poor, Black, and Student Voters From Voting
The 2012 election is closer than you think--and just in time, states are passing a host of new bills aimed at making it harder to vote.

Across the country, new Republican governors have found the policies that they're enacting are less popular than the promises on which they campaigned.
Voters are experiencing extensive buyer's remorse in state after state, but while Republicans maintain control, they're doing everything in their power to consolidate their power. And one of the best ways to ensure future victories is to make sure voters who oppose you don't make it to the polls in the first place.

So under the pretense that "voter fraud" (which is basically nonexistent) is a serious problem, conservative governors and state legislatures are pushing through laws that severely limit access to the vote. from the elimination of same-day voter registration to unduly strict voter ID requirements. These may not sound like that big of a deal. But when it comes to on-the-ground voting patterns, they can substantially impact turnout.

It just so happens that these laws overwhelmingly target groups that tend to vote for Democrats: students, people of color, lower-income folks, and urban residents.
Elimination of early voting periods means longer lines at the polls--and more people turning away because they simply don't have the time to wait. And imagine a mailing telling thousands of confused new voters that their ID requirements have changed, then imagine being challenged over your documents -- that's straight-up voter intimidation. Many people will stay home rather than risk embarrassment, or simply forget until the last minute that they haven't updated their driver's license.
Over the course of history we've fought to increase the number of people eligible to vote, extending the ballot to previously disenfranchised constituencies. Now, as former President Bill Clinton notes, we've forgotten that history. The new class of GOP governors are accelerating attacks on voter rights in time for pivotal elections, and they know what they're doing. Clinton told the Campus Progress National Conference, “There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the other Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today.”
Sixteen senators submitted a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, asking him to investigate whether the Voting Rights Act, one of the crown jewels of Civil Rights-era legislation, invalidates these state provisions.
Twenty states saw new proposed voter ID laws this year; 14 states saw attempts to strengthen existing voter ID requirements. We break down the 11 worst, but these are far from the only ones—the National Conference of State Legislatures notes that only three

You are right brother Rich!


As the people that gave the world it's first strategists, we have a duty to the ancestors and to our progeny to become strategists once again, and teach that science an matematical principal to our children.

I remember Dr Leonard Jeffries brother stated that no child no matter how young,
could enter his Dojo, without knowing first, how to play chess.

These knuckas are throwing some weak moves an with a unified and focused effort, we can easily checkmate them and their jive con-games
We too strong now , but they will seek away to do this so we have to be alert
