Description

How the Bush campaign in "Florida 2000" engineered a political and Civil Rights disaster for African Americans, and why. And the parallels of this debacle in American history and constitutional law. --- "Perhaps the most dramatic undercount...was the non-existent ballots of the countless unknown eligible voters who were wrongfully purged from the voter registration rolls...The disenfranchisement of Florida's voters fell most harshly on the shoulders of African Americans." The United States Commission on Civil Rights "The United States Supreme Court was aware of this illegal, massive disenfranchisement of Florida's black citizens... executed by the state's highest ranking electoral officials... "In Gadsen County...the black population is only 11%, but the number of rejected black ballots were 54%." The New Jim Crow "Since Dred Scott v. Sanford...there has been no case decided by the Supreme Court of the United States in recent years that has had a more devastating impact on the fundamental political interests and Civil Rights of African Americans than Bush v. Gore." From the Introduction of The New Jim Crow
