LaVon Bracy, 63, understands the stakes in Florida’s current voting rights battle all too well. Her father, the Rev. Thomas Wright, is a civil rights luminary and former NAACP president who spent much of the 1960s fighting segregation, often under threat of death. When his chapter of the NAACP sued Alachua County Public Schools to desegregate, a teenage Bracy sacrificed her senior year to help integrate a white school. She has no fond prom memories; instead she remembers the people spitting in her face, the regular chants of “@!$%#” that greeted her, and the beating she took from a group of white male students, who went unpunished.Bracy’s beating was so traumatic that she stayed home from school for the next three days wondering whether to go back. But in the end, she returned. Bracy told the Voices of the Civil Rights project, “I refused to allow them to win.”That was her thought this spring, too, as she plunged the New Covenant Baptist Church—the Orlando congregation she leads with her husband—into a voter registration campaign more dangerous than it has been in a generation.
are we the new majority allowing further escalation of a right wing South going full Klan like and suppressing those American's who just want the promise fulfilled of fair and honest elections.
the attempt to block the investigation which will expose their unscrupulous unconstitutional usurping of another American's. is their a felony designated to this crime against "we the people", forming a less than perfect union, in favor of one hateful collaboration of unAmerican acts by unAmerican non patriots.
why did we create laws, for the betterment of our live's free of criminal efforts to use and abuse us? well we have been failing miserably. 27th in education but they care about leaving debt on kids they'll be to stupid to do the math they'll never know. 37th in healthcare and the right wants us to hit bottom, we'll be in the commercial with a glass of dirty water begging India China for help they are doing fine thanks to all the job's Romney sent them at "we the peoples" expense
