10. Cool, walkingman.

This is a place of open discussion and I appreciate you taking the time to join in the conversation. Getting black people to vote is really more about making sure that they can vote and those votes are counted. The gutting of the Voting Right's Act has been devastating. Unfortunately, it's not a sexy topic for most.
There are some really thorough articles that have been posted online. I'll link a few for you to consider.
