Rev. William Barber: ‘Voter Suppression Is Attack on Our Democracy’

‘This is voter suppression, it’s surgical racism’

EXCERPT:

BARBER: “Voter suppression is an attack on our democracy. And we have to see this, because the attacks are happening in Georgia and West Virginia, in Alabama and Alaska. And I was talking the other day to a white woman and a black woman in West Virginia. And this is what they said, Mika. They just don’t want us to vote. And I said, us, who? And they said, the us that believes in living wages, public education, health care, corporations paying their fair share, and listing from the bottom. So we have to have a way to show how this is an attack on democracy.”
