3.  Unlike you, most people find it hard to see the world through somebody else's
eyes. That's one big reason why "ballot security" vote suppression has been going on for so long.

The beauty of the racial aspect of "ballot security" is that at polling places in "mixed" areas, there will tend to be two radically different reactions to the presence of the same uniformed guards. People who learned, "the police are your friend", are likely tol feel safer. People who learned, "the police can come into your house anytime, without a warrant" may turn around and walk the other way.
