- Editor’s note: With more state legislatures considering bills similar to Georgia’s to restrict voting access in Black precincts, this country is on the verge of minority rule, which is a true autocracy. Unless there is a federal bill mandating equal voter access nationwide, this country will no longer resemble a democracy, because majority rule by voters can be overturned by Republican state legislatures enacting such laws. Think about that for a moment – minority rule is anathema to our democracy!
- This interview of Martin Luther King, Jr. on NBC’s Meet the Press (1965) about voting rights restrictions is as pertinent today as 56 years ago!
