    Blacks applied for the anti-fraud squad but they didn’t have the proper IDs.

    I left you a comment on yesterday’s strip. I posted it about 1AM today, so you might not have seen it.

    I read it and appreciate it.

    Looks like it’ll be another day for our favorite trolls to spew their venom-laced inanities. Wonder if we’ll break yesterday’s record ?

    You libs are so compassionate in your desire that everyone has a vote. Illegal aliens, Disney characters, deceased people…

    Thanks to everyone who pointed me in the direction of ‘Jim Crow’ laws.
    Twenty years ago, I visited an old college friend in Atlanta Georgia and one day whilst he was working, I went to visit the Birthplace of Martin Luther King. There all the trips are guided, and I was the only ‘white’ on our particular tour and as we waited I sensed an unspoken hostility towards me. Before the tour started, the Guide asked where we all came from and why we had come. When I said I was from the UK (and found the concept of segregration within my lifetime absolutely shocking) with hostility just disappeared. My theory is that the others were concerned I was ‘troublemaker’ with preconceptions and intended just to make trouble.
    This (a several other incidents) made me realise how deep-seated and institustionalised racist behaviour is in large sections of white americans. From some of the posts here, it appears the situation has improved marginally, if at all.
    Yours saddened
    Mike

    Mike, I have seen first hand apartheid in South Africa and have been exposed to subtler but still palpable prejudices in the U.K.
    Every country has some degree of fear and jingoism. My recent trips to Europe show me that one of the legacies of a failing EU is a growing fear and resentment of “outsiders” and “guest laborers”. I have seen this in practically every country over there, and I’m afraid, as the economy declines, the racial tensions will rise.
    It doesn’t excuse what we are doing here but the younger generation in the U.S. don’t seem to have the prejudices and hangups of their parents and grandparents. This may be our only hope.

    Frankly, given that in all but a few Scandinavian nations, “democracy” has ceased to have any meaning but to give people the illusion that they have a voice in how they are ruled, does voting matter anyway?

    And next stop will be Florida, where they have the audacity to eliminate illegal immigrants and others who have forfeited their voting rights (felons) from the voting rolls, which is estimated to being over 100,000. Obama, of course, opposes the effort. A hundred thousand votes is enough to sway an election.

    “Estimated to be over 100,000” while the actual number found once investigated has been… 2.

    Next stop on the tour, Hawaii and its Obama-supported, Civil Rights Commission-opposed racially discriminating Akaka bill…

    Like I said yesterday, rioting in the streets if Romney wins with the help of Republican voter suppression laws.
