The landmark #SacharCommittee report that collected & analysed data on the social,economic & educational status of Muslims in India is now available in our resource section. Specifically,it tried to gauge if & why Muslims are under-represented in govt departments & other spheres.
Here are some of its findings. ruralindiaonline.org/resources/soci…
The 2001 Census showed that #literacy rates were low among Muslims, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
The perception that religious conservatism among Muslims is a major factor for not accessing #education is incorrect. As with many Indians, the main reason for ‘educational backwardness’ of Muslims is abject poverty, which forces many children to drop out of school.

Just sayin' - I've got a graf in my #Mississippi piece for @BitterSouth tomorrow that's already made two grown men cry.

Facts can be devastating.

Keep pushing for the truth, my friends. The #ProgressiveSouth will ultimately prevail.
In the South -esp the Deep South- needing a #birthcertificate for #voter registration really is an impossibility for a sizable percentage of older African Americans.

This article is incredible:

2/3 @UpGuard is the company who found the breach. “The worse-case scenario is that they could be completely infiltrated right now,” said Upguard's director of strategy Jon Hendren.
3/3 ES&S is the largest provider of voting equipment in the country. Let me just repeat that for emphasis. “The worse-case scenario is that they could be completely infiltrated right now.” And hackers could have had a full year to do what they need to do. apnews.com/f6876669cb6b4e…

Hand marked paper ballots shorten lines bc many people can mark their ballots concurrently. (The scanning part is fast.) Touchscreens, which Georgia has, cause long lines bc they limit the # of people who can mark their ballots concurrently to the # of machines at the precinct 1/
Naturally, the GOP is enamored of touchscreens, and Kemp is hell bent on having Georgia replace its current touchscreens with more touchscreens. #ProtectOurVotes 2/
