“The same system that introduced 100:1 crack to powder cocaine ratio to lock blacks up, that killed Troy Davis knowing he could be innocent…”
“The same system that killed & locked up panthers, instigated & set the environment for the assassination of Malcolm X, killed MLK, Lumumba”
“The same system that allowed Oscar Grant’s murderer to walk free.”
“The same system that let Emmett Till’s murderers free.”
Starting this blog was not my idea. I’ve been encouraged to do this for a long time, by twitter friends, but resisted, because i didn’t want public opinion of me to be one of pity; but, one of telling a story about an economic, political manipulation by Mike Harris; which created a ripple effect, still ongoing.. into a whirlpool of poverty, disabled lone Mom’s with children under the age of ten, were cast! Sink or swim mentality was the political bullying tactic of the day! Poverty Genocide. Malignant Politics. Greed.

California AB 2058 is just more voter suppression. Voter registration drives inform people they need to re-register to vote when they move, they provide that service. Move to a state that doesn’t often have registration drives, their voter rolls are atrociously out-of-date and therefore voters vote provisionally, their votes are often uncounted.
The people who register the most voters like to get paid per card. Take that incentive away, you will get a lot less people registered to vote. GOP knows this, Democrats are asleep, not fighting against AB 2058. — http://www.ballot-access.org/2012/06/19/california-bill-for-election-day-registration-advances/comment-page-1/#comment-936636 (via mondiablue)
