Jim Crow-era disfranchisement measures did not "suppress the vote based upon race" either. Literacy tests, poll taxes, and grandfather clauses were ostensibly race neutral. But everyone knew what they were supposed to do.

.@LeaderMcConnell: "What do all these new laws have in common? None of them, not one, is designed to suppress the vote based upon race. There is no reason for the federal government to take over how we conduct elections. It is a solution in search of a problem."

I first subscribed to @time as a nerdy middle school kid. I still have copies from the week Berlin Wall fell and of Nelson Mandela. So, to be named to the #time100 is just unfathomable & I’m blown away that the great @bandrybarry penned these words.

I just came out of Rikers Island where @jessicaramos & I witnessed an attempted suicide. The conditions on Rikers are inhumane. We need action. 1. District Attorneys stop asking for cash bail 2. The Mayor must release ppl inside 3. We urge the Governor to sign Less Is More
