Aiding and Abetting Voter Suppression: Silence of Modern Day Black Republicans

Written by Peter Grear, Esq. on Monday, 23 December 2013 22:10.

There is a deafening silence in the ranks of modern black Republicans who stand mute as their party of choice relentlessly attacks the civil right that is most responsibile for the rights and privileges of democracy, the right to vote.  There is a group of them that gather with the Tea Partiers, Sean Hannity and other Republican right wingers to denounce President Obama and so-called liberal democrats as representing everything that is bad for blacks in America and accusing them of race exploitation.  I watch them in amazement as they claim to defend the constitution and say that Obama ignores it.  They are very unbalanced in their zeal to demean black Democrats as they ignore the constitutional guarantee of “one man and one vote” and the massive voter suppression efforts of their Republican party.

North Carolina Responds to Voter Suppression: Educate, Organize and Mobilize

Written by Peter Grear, Esq. on Thursday, 19 December 2013 04:50.

 Since late September 2013, Patricia Ferguson and I have participated in 12-15 NC Legislative Black Caucus sponsored Town Hall meetings held around the state. The purpose of the town halls was to update communities on the ways that they’ve been impacted by regressive legislation passed by the 2013 NC General Assembly, to educate communities about the legislation and to define a way forward in addressing community priorities.  Our task has been to address voter suppression and to help to define an appropriate community response.  During our presentations we’ve addressed the national Republican led campaigns to suppress the right to vote and to translate its present and future impact on voting in North Carolina.
