The Jim Crow Laws were state laws that enforced segregation in the south. People are comparing this Georgia voting law to just that and there are many reasons. I heard about the law all over the news but I never read upon it until today and I was shocked. You all know me, theories pour out when I read things and I have a couple on this law. It just didn’t make sense on why these old white men keep pushing buttons. What are they really trying to do? They say that this is so that we can have a safe and fair voting but that is not it. They made it illegal to give voters food and water. Why would someone restrict that? That is a humane thing to do. That just shows you that they are trying to cut off voting from people..
The law without a doubt are targeting blacks and minority groups. They cut the time to vote as well which they did because they know many people might not make it. They are not slick. Here is a list of what the law sates…
- Requires an ID number, like a driver’s license, to apply for an absentee ballot
- Cuts off absentee ballot applications 11 days before an election
- Limits the number of absentee ballot drop boxes
- Allows the state to take control of what it calls “underperforming” local election systems
- Disallows volunteers from giving away food and drink to voters waiting in lines
- Revises times for advance voting
- Allows election officials to begin scanning verified ballots on the third Monday before election day
- Requires two Saturday voting days and makes two Sunday voting days optional
- Revises times for runoffs to be held on the 28th day after a general or special primary election
This is nothing but a form of modern racism. Republicans are mad democrats beat them and that Trump loss. I believe this is all happening because Trump complained. He loss fair and square because he made a horrible president and people wanted him out. This is what you call a fair race. They cheated to get him in there last time and he had the audacity to say we cheated. Major companies are moving their products and brands from Georgia to fight against this. Why do these old white men make these rules? They do the most for Trump like he is a god. I am also not a fan of Joe Biden but he is better than Trump. I said we need younger people running who actually want to change things. We need some new people in congress and the supreme court. Of course the supreme court won’t drop this law because they are the most useless old people ever. They just sit there rotting. Same goes for congress. I say this because they did the most to act like they were impeaching Trump but did nothing. They are literally useless.
There was a saying in the civil rights movement that stated “If a law makes you uncomfortable, and and is unfair, then you have the right to break that law”. That’s all I’m saying. The law is unnecessary and they know many people won’t be able to vote. I see exactly what they are doing. All they do is whine until something happen. Freaking old white babies.
*This so a race thing even if they wanna act like it isn’t*
