Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) verbalized Tuesday on CNN’s “Tonight” that the Republican Party was engaged in “a war on ebony people as it relates to voting.” Anchor Don Lemon verbalized, “The Supreme Court is aurally perceiving arguments today that could emasculate voting rights in Arizona. Major push nationwide to make it harder for people to vote. What does this designate concretely for ebony voters?”
Jackson Lee verbally expressed, “Well, I cerebrate tragically we have not had this historic opposition to our rights since slavery, during the Jim Crow days and of course the rigorousness of the 1960s. The tragedy of this is an entire party, the Republican Party, is committed to voter suppression, committed to eschewing the opportunity of votes. Donald Trump laid out he only wants one day for votes. They don’t want opportunities for absentee ballot, elongated voting, same-day registration, all things that potentiate adolescent people and people of color, African-Americans.”
She perpetuated, “This is a war on ebony people as it relates to voting. Unfortunately, it seems to Supreme Court is going to participate with this ostensibly intended decision to narrow the only remaining aspect of the Voting Right Act, Section 2, which we are endeavoring to fine-tune with the John Robert Lewis legislation in HR4. This is a fight for democracy, a fight for equity, and an opportunity or a desire or a desideratum to recuperate the voting rights to people of color and categorically ebony people. We will not sanction this to transpire under the Biden administration and the Democratic House and Senate. It’s tragic that Republicans want to take that stand because they can’t win fairly. They can’t draw people to their positions. They are now endeavoring to suppress the votes.”
