Now, More than Ever, We ALL Need to Listen to Civil Rights Icons

Fifty years ago, Blacks had to march and picket and protest and get "uncivil" to get their vote counted.

This year, all of us are being targeted by the GOP "Block the Vote" machine. Expect to see white people in massive numbers stripped from voting list for the first time. Expect to see polling places in predominantly white, urban areas denied access to functioning machines. Expect to see lines of white folks waiting until midnight or later to cast a ballot. And poll watchers challenging whites--especially elderly whites---for the first time in their privileged lives. And vote tabulations that do not match the number of votes cast.

If you do not want be unpleasantly surprised in November, then you had better be prepared to become confrontational now. I say listen to Maxine Waters. She is better guide through what is ahead of us than many of her fellow "polite" Democrats.
