okay while researching my next "making people feel old" shitpost I decided to verify the date of the Voting Rights Act and came across this terrible Quora answer: https://www.quora.com/When-were-blacks-allowed-to-vote-What-caused-this
and its wonderful related questions, "Is it good that blacks are allowed to vote?" and "Should we allow black people to vote?"
So clearly the position in history of the Voting Rights Act is not something that a lot of people want to be aware of.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
