What Professor Barack Obama Was Trying To Tell Us

An essay by the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr. on the need for a constitutional right to vote. 

“So we won the military battle in 1865.  We won the legal battles in 1954, 1964 and 1965.  But we haven’t defeated the Confederates and their ideological battle of advocating and defending states’ rights. . . . .  A national unified voting system would replace our current ‘states’ rights’ voting system that is comprised of 50 states (plus D.C.), 3,143 counties, 13,000 election jurisdictions that administer 186,000 precincts, that are all in ‘separate and unequal’ local voting jurisdictions.”
