I was born in the 1950s when it was not illegal for black people in the south to vote—it was suicide. Pseudo-laws, tests, intimidation, hoods, ropes, and guns were the anti-democracy tactics of the day. Southern state officials could not legitimately ban black people from voting, so the strategy was...

It is exceedingly disturbing that media outlets are playing the game of ‘Where’s QAnon,’ searching to unravel the GOP’s puzzle of voter restrictions. The use of voter suppression and the excusing of insurrectionists by Republican lawmakers have made the GOP a group of  Q-watchers. Despite the circumlocutive excuses made by...
