7. Another overt sign of this new coaltion of segregationists...
Edited on Mon Dec-13-04 10:12 AM by Q
...is the civil rights abuses that have happened in the last two elections (that we can trace). Blacks and other minorities who vote mostly Democrat were forced to wait in long lines. Others were disqualified to vote because their names appeared on 'felon lists'...though few of them were felons. These are just a couple examples of how Blacks and others have been prevented from voting.

But the sinister part of all of this is that the leadership of the Democratic party has been mysteriously silent about these civil rights abuses. These abuses could be prosecuted under civil rights laws...but for some reason the leadership has been convinced it's not worth the time or effort. Why?
