Cornell Belcher: It Is Not Easy to Vote in America if You Happen to Look Like Me, and That’s Intentional

‘If you happen to look like me and you’re in Georgia, you’re standing in line for six or seven hours to vote’
By Grabien Staff

(via RealClearPolitics)

EXCERPT:

BELCHER: “I've got to push back on my friend, Sara, about how easy it is to vote in America. It is not that easy to vote in America. If you happen to look like me and you're in Georgia, you're standing in line for six or seven hours to vote. It's not easy to vote in America if you happen to look like me. Right? And that's been done intentionally. Republicans have intentionally shut down voting polls for places that cater to minorities and people who actually vote Democratic. You've seen over 200 laws pass over this last year since the power of young people and Black voters turned and flipped states, and Hispanic votes flipped states. That's not by accident, Sara. It is harder to vote in America today --“
FAGEN: “The fact though --“
BELCHER: “-- than it was.”
