Black conservatives tell Supreme Court vote security isn’t about race

It’s a message that the Supreme Court needed to hear – securing our elections has nothing to do with race, no matter how much the left tries to make it so.

Project 21, a black leadership network, issued remarks to the press in support of two Arizona voter fraud laws being examined by the Supreme Court.

“Phony claims of voter suppression should never trump legitimate voter integrity measures,” Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper said in the press release announcing the group’s role in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee. “All Americans — black, white, or brown — benefit from ensuring that authentic, duly-registered voters cast the ballots that decide what policies and elected officials will govern their communities.”

“While these laws have been challenged as a violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and the 15th Amendment’s protections from racial discrimination infringing upon voting rights, they were upheld by the lower federal appeals court,” Project 21’s press release said.

It’s a story we’ve heard too many times.

The left has no argument for why we should allow our democracy to go unprotected – so they cry racism. It’s time we put that to an end.
