I recently read the book pictured above. It’s a lengthy liberal polemic even by my highly-partisan standards, but it makes many good points. Here’s one that may be a reach:
In the U.S., black people are incarcerated at a much higher rate than white people who commit similar crimes. Example: Joe Black Dude and Fred White Dude both get busted on a coke charge. Joe Black Dude goes to prison while Fred White Dude gets probation. Therefore, there are arguably a large number of unfairly incarcerated black people all over the country, including Florida. IF those people had not been in prison in 2000, AND they had done their civic duty and voted, THEN Al Gore would’ve won the state of Florida and been elected president.
Racial disparities in the justice system are deliberately maintained to minimize the black vote– a modern-day poll tax.
