Don't Blame GOP: White Democratic Voters Also Do Not Wait in Line 

As if voting is something new. As if white supremacy is just a Republican thing. Right. Just like driving or walking (while Black or Brown), banking, getting an education and everything else of perceived value in the US seems to go down differently for non-whites. White people can barely wait in line at the CVS behind a Black person - they do not accept waiting in line to vote. White people in white Democratic precincts did not wait in line for 6 hours to vote for Obama. If so, where? If you waited in line you most likely are non-white. This is purposeful, strategic behavior by white people. The "we're all in this together" stuff is a game. The current operating system of White supremacy is the problem not technology or the GOP. 

A Hart Research study sponsored by the AFL-CIO found wait times to vote were significantly longer for Latinos and Blacks this year as 24% and 22% respectively waited in line longer than whites who voted. [actual study is HERE - just a graph, pictured above "Minorities, Democrats...". By the way, who is a minority when 90% of the world is non-white? 

A different survey by MIT in 2008 found that wait times for black voters were more than twice as long as those for whites. This was for both early and election day voting.
