While crisis abroad is trending, local crisis hides in the shadows

While the world watches the crisis in Afghanistan, I’m watching the crisis at home. In fact, I’m watching more than one crisis at home.

 

COVID is a crisis, and I fault Trump because he created an atmosphere where his followers don’t trust common sense advice for doctors, and it’s now so bad that when Trump told a crowd in Alabama to get vaccinated this weekend, the crowd booed Trump.

 

Gun violence is a crisis, and yet, when Black people are murdered, the media relegates them to a paragraph, while giving front page coverage when white folks get a boo boo. That’s wrong, and it keeps the names of Black crime victims from being priorities for law enforcement.

 

But there is another crisis in America—and it deals with our voting system. All but two states have proposed changes to their voting laws—changes that too often suppress the votes of Black people. And to make matters worse, the effort to make it seem as if the last election was somehow stolen continues—even though Donald Trump lost by more than 7 million votes.

 

But that won’t stop what’s happening today. The results of the fake audit of Trump’s loss in Arizona will be released today, and I’m telling you now, it’s going to be some nonsense. Trump lost in Arizona, the votes were counted and recounted, until finally, Republicans brought in some sham organization that will claim the election was stolen.

 

We cannot let that happen. So, we must fight to make sure that voting rights are not overshadowed by Afghanistan. We must fight to tell our folks that voting will bring money in for gun violence. We must fight to make sure that Joe Biden honors his promise to have Black people’s back.

 

Because if we can’t vote, we won’t count, and no one in our community wants that.

Like everyone else, I was surprised that Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. It’s one thing for me to believe that Cosby was treated unfairly by a racist criminal justice system. It’s quite another thing for the state’s highest court to say Cosby’s due process rights were violated. Read on @whyy
