"In fact, there’s a near perfect fit between where black voters aren’t voting and where Republicans have made it harder to vote—a fact highlighted by a press release issued today by the state Republican Party, which called the decrease 'encouraging.'"

And they still aren't listening "Some of it was about persuasion: It's hard to win the support of white voters when you're calling them racist."
Try: "None of it was about persuasion: It's hard to win the support of white voters when they're racists."
Most Black people don't idly call everyone racists. And you can't persuade people out of a belief, period. If YOU think you're on the side of right and good, can anyone persuade you that YOU are wrong?
