The New Jim Crow

Hillary Clinton's defeat in the 2016 presidential election may have had many fathers, but one of the most important and least visible was the systematic voter suppression machine that Republicans have deployed in recent years.

The best hope of liberals will be countering this bigotry with aggressive voter outreach, education, mobilization, and support.
