No blacks participating in US voter registration and BLM drive
A new $80 million anti-white network is being led by an organisation funded by George Soros to fight US voter identification laws in order to make it easier for non-white immigrants to vote. But the drive generally includes few non-whites.

It will also focus on automatic voter registration programs with an eye on the 2018 and 2020 election cycles to include non-whites.
The Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund, announced at their spring gala Tuesday that they will be heading up the new $80 million network that will span 32 states and have 48 local partners, CNN reported.
Democrat lawmaker, Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, backed the new effort to dilute white votes in the US. “This national network, led by working class people of colour and immigrants, will supply the power and the fight we need to resist the Trump administration’s all-out assault on American values,” Ellison told CNN. “I look forward to standing with CPD Action’s leaders in the streets and in Congress to win real progressive change.”
Meanwhile an international journal was forced to apologise last week after it featured no black writers in its volume on the Black Lives Matter movement.
A black Yale professor noticed the lack of black writers in the Black Lives Matter issue of The Journal of Political Philosophy, reports the New York Post.
“We, the Editors, sincerely apologize for the oversight in not including a Black author in a Symposium explicitly entitled ‘Black Lives Matter,’” the editor and two other colleagues wrote in a open letter. “We accept the point eloquently and forcefully made by our colleagues that this is an especially grave oversight in light of the specific focus of Black Lives Matter on the extent to which African-Americans have been erased and marginalized from public life.”
The editor promised that the journal would try to add two black editors to the editorial board, because the journal doesn’t have any.
“We have learnt important lessons here and will do our utmost to avoid such oversights and errors in the future and to be more sensitive in the manner we encourage, curate, frame and present work that engages with issues of grievous and persistent injustice,” he explained.
Chris Lebron, a Yale associate professor of African-American studies, expressed his “distaste” for the omission.
“What is so deflating about the journal’s misstep here is that this contribution to the historical record is in fact a kind of replaying of history that the movement for black lives has dedicated itself to eliminating from a society struggling to be decent – the erasure of black presence when and where it counts and is needed,” Lebron fumed.
