the last book I ever read (Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy's Guide to the Constitution, excerpt fourteen)

from Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy's Guide to the Constitution by Elie Mystal:

Our electoral system is madness. And it’s madness on a good day. It would be madness when all involved are acting in good faith to try to help people access their rights. But in this country, we have one party—the Republicans—who have decided to act in bad faith and exploit aspects of the madness to suppress and discourage people from voting based on the color of their skin. As I’ve said elsewhere, conservatives don’t take constitutional amendments as a denouncement of their racism; they take them as a challenge to become more creative in their bigotry.
