Black voters saved Alabama—despite efforts to keep them down

http://www.macleans.ca/opinion/black-voters-saved-alabama-despite-efforts-to-keep-them-down/

Opinion: Doug Jones may have defeated Roy Moore in their Senate race, but Alabama’s electoral history is still marked by efforts to frustrate the Black vote

When Alabama State Senator Sam Engelhardt was elected to office in 1954, he arrived with a mandate from the pro-segregation White Citizens Council, of which he was a high-ranking member: to quash the growing threat of Negro rule in the state. In 1930, only 30 Black voters were registered in Engelhardt’s home seat of Macon County, where Tuskegee University was built; that number grew to 75 registered Black voters in 1940, 130 registered in 1950, and subsequently leapt to 1,100 registered in 1957, within a district that constituted one of the highest percentages of Black residents of any county in the nation. Alabama segregationists feared that by 1960, Black voters would comprise the majority in Macon County and effectively control its representation through the federal level...

In Alabama, a warning for 2018

http://www.newsobserver.com/opinion/editorials/article189869269.html

The Tide rolled, all right – right over Roy Moore and President Donald Trump.

Voters in Alabama repudiated the hate-filled rhetoric of President Trump’s endless tweets and the cynics who figured that even someone under the gun for alleged sexual misconduct, twice removed from the state Supreme Court, an inarticulate bully who swaggered around a stage carrying a pistol, could be elected to the U.S. Senate from Alabama...

Neo-Nazi Who Rammed His Car Into Anti-Fascist Protesters Charged With First-Degree Murder

https://jezebel.com/neo-nazi-who-rammed-his-car-into-anti-fascist-protester-1821331022

James Alex Fields Jr., the 20-year-old neo-Nazi who allegedly injured 35 people and killed one woman when he plowed his car through a crowd of anti-fascists at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August, has been charged with first-degree murder.

Fields was charged in the killing of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, a counter-protester who was peacefully demonstrating against white supremacists. On Thursday, prosecutor Joe Platania announced the charge against Fields had been upgraded from second-degree murder to first-degree, after testimony from law enforcement officials cited evidence that Fields intentionally crashed his car into the protesters. The sentence carries a 20-year minimum and could put Fields behind bars for life. State District Court Judge Robert H Downer, Jr. has allowed Fields’s case to proceed in front of a grand jury...

Net Neutrality Violations: A Brief History

https://www.freepress.net/blog/2017/04/25/net-neutrality-violations-brief-history

Note: This is an updated version of an older post. Due to the Trump administration's recent attacks on Net Neutrality, we felt it was important to resurface these important examples of what happens when cable and phone companies are left to their own devices.

For years a lineup of phone- and cable-industry spokespeople has called Net Neutrality “a solution in search of a problem.”...
