This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

African Americans managed to be a lower percentage of the voters in Georgia this election than last election, and more African Americans voted Trump this time than last time there. Abrams is probably trying to deflect from that fact, as it was her job to get African Americans to vote, and to vote Biden in greater numbers. And given they had record turnout, they cannot blame suppression for those failures.

Can't imagine why blacks wouldn't vote for a white guy and his non-African-American running mate, both of whom had a hand in putting so many blacks in prison over the years.

Whodathunkit.

I think you misunderstand. According to narrative, Joe "If You Don't Vote For Me, Than You Ain't Black" Biden can only be voted for by blacks. Obviously, the ones who didn't vote democrat cannot therefore be black. We shall call them, these new formerly black but not anymore Americans, Non-Monolithic Voting Demographic African-Americans and ensure that leftists shun them appropriately.

Damn.  Newsweek is really scraping the bottom of the barrel for their articles...
 
The title doesn't really have anything to do with the article.
 
The one quote is all that's there.
 
"It's important that we understand that voter suppression being stopped is why they are so mad," Abrams told The Cut's Rebecca Traister. "Republicans had a plan for stopping voters from getting to the polls. We beat them in multiple states and flipped the outcome. The margins are small because the outcome can be undone very quickly."
 
No anecdotes, evidence, or even any made-up examples of how Republicans were "stopping voters from getting to the polls."...just the quote.

Everything else in the article is just about the Fair Fight organization...

"We mitigated voter suppression across the country," Abrams said. "Voter suppression existed in '16; it existed in '18. But we had a voter-protection apparatus that covered the country through these battleground states: Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, Minnesota. The work done through Fair Fight to mitigate voter suppression got people to the polls. It's not the only thing, but it is a huge thing."

....so they mitigated voter suppression by doing what exactly?
 
Did they drive people to the polls or something??   ::)
"I have a very hard time taking seriously someone who has the time and resources to protest capitalism, while walking around in Nike shoes and drinking Starbucks, while filming it on their iPhone."  --  Alderaan Crumbs

"Just, can you make it The Ramones at least? I only listen to Abba when I want to fuck a stripper." -- Jeff37923

"Government is the only entity that relies on its failures to justify the expansion of its powers." -- David Freiheit (Viva Frei)

Nobody always posts fun topics!

Let's not forget what white college liberals really think of black people.

Another drive-by shitpost from Nobody. Odds on whether he/she/ze actually comes back to post in their own thread?
The word "problematic" is problematic

No bet.

The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

Here's what they are doing exactly:

1) Committing massive fraud on a laughable scale and believing they are above the law because their media lapdogs will scream waaaaaycism! and mysoggyknees! and "conspiwacy theorwee" at any attempt to uncover their crimes.

2) Mistaking Trump for a Republican.

Basic math. Nobody needs more than Intro to Statistics to see the fraud.

Russian collusion for the 2016 election was totally believeable without evidence, but cheating at the 2020 election where a Democrat 'won' requires proof.
