Response to another_liberal (Reply #26)

27. The tactic worked VERY well for the original 80 year

 

Jim Crow era, and has a good chance of working just as well in our current Jim Crow II era.

I worked for 5 years with other activists to get NC's e-voting laws the toughest in the nation, and all of it is being undermined by voter ID laws, the elimination/severe curtailment of early voting, and new obstacles to voter registration.

Believe me when I say I hope you are right, but I have watched the state transform in the last decade from the most progressive state in the South, to a race to be just like South Carolina and Alabama.
