Democrats don't care if black people can vote

If they did, they wouldn't be saying that Nader cost Gore the election.
The biggest reason that Florida was in question (besides the infamous butterfly ballot, which yielded a surprising number of Jewish votes for Buchanan) was that tens of thousands of mostly black voters were illegally removed from the voting rolls in that state, despite orders to the contrary by the state Supreme Court.

Democrats who cry "Nader" over the election are apparently saying that if only Nader hadn't run, it wouldn't matter that all those folks were disenfranchised.

WAKE UP PEOPLE! 135 YEARS AFTER THE END OF THE CIVIL WAR, BLACK PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH ***STILL*** COULDN'T VOTE!

That's an absolute travesty of democracy, equality, and morality. The Democratic leadership has still made no complaint or commentary about it. That's because the Democratic leadership is comprised of rich RACIST fucks who don't give a shit about you or I or anyone but their corporate sponsors.

Blaming Nader = RACISM, pure and simple, you stupid assholes.
