Stacey Abrams’ political career has been sidetracked, again, but I doubt that will stop her from making unsubstantiated, if not contrived, claims about people of color in our election process.
Ms. Abrams led the nationwide mob, including Major League Baseball, which attacked Georgia’s 2021 election reform law as an effort by “racists” to suppress the vote among people of color like her and me. That stunt cost the majority-Black community of Atlanta around $100 million in lost revenue.
President Biden took Ms. Abrams’ lead and on May 26, 2021, called the new Georgia voting laws “Jim Crow in the 21st Century” and “Jim Crow 2.0.” All these histrionics were based on the fact that the law required voters to present some form of identification before voting and prohibited outside groups from using refreshments as a form of electioneering. Supposedly, these were schemes by the evil Republicans to suppress minority turnout.
The 2022 midterm elections in Georgia disprove Ms. Abrams’ hysterical claims. Voting in Georgia was at an all-time high, especially among people of color. Did that make Ms. Abrams rethink her earlier charges of racism regarding the new Georgia voting law? No; she just changed a few notes in her “woe is me” tune and added a new verse…
