RamsayWrites — Jim Crow 2.0

None of us was alive for the original Jim Crow laws back in the 1920s which made racial segregation legal in the southern United States. “Colored only” washrooms, poll taxes, “back of the bus” and IQ tests asking “how many bubbles in a bar of soap?” weren’t just the rule, they were the law.

Jim Crow laws were crushed by the relentless march of social progress. Or it seemed so until Donald Trump was elected President in 2016 and Republicans decided that one way to stop them was voter suppression.
