OBSTRUCTIONIST TO: Sensible Guns Laws, Justice Reforms, Voting RightsAct, Statehood for DC, Passage of Americas much needed infrastructure Bill. Mr. Joe Mancini
Grandmothers mothers and women (GMW), Joe Mancini, democratic senator from West Virginia, is our answer to the question, “Is America Racist?”
Voting should not be an issue In 2021. It was duly ratified to the Constitution March 30, 1870.
Mr. Mancini your racism is showing. Chuck Schumer, is your majority leader; but it appears you’re listening to your minority leader, Mitch McConnell. You need to decide, what more important, upholding the Constitution or trying to please the GOP, Who cares less about the constitution, unless it’s serving their purpose. The voter fraud theory is totally in violation of our constitution, and you know it. You also know the Senate is split 50/50, and the GOP, (weather we like it or not) have unity with their 50%, and be-dam to the American People. Mr. Mancini, your party need the power of their 50% to accomplish goals for our country. God gave you an opportunity to stand-Up for 15th amendment, with the world watching, and you are choosing to show Racism, for something that’s already a done deal.
The Fifteenth Amendment (Amendment XV) to the United States Constitution prohibits the federal government and each state from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen’s “race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” It was ratified on February 3, 1870, as the third and last of the Reconstruction Amendments.
In the final years of the American Civil War and the Reconstruction Era that followed, Congress repeatedly debated the rights of the millions of former black slaves. By 1869, amendments had been passed to abolish slavery and provide citizenship and equal protection under the laws, but the election of Ulysses S. Grant to the presidency in 1868 convinced a majority of Republicans that protecting the franchise of black male voters was important for the party’s future. On February 26, 1869, after rejecting more sweeping versions of a suffrage amendment, Congress proposed a compromise amendment banning franchise restrictions on the basis of race, color, or previous servitude. After surviving a difficult ratification fight, the amendment was certified as duly ratified and part of the Constitution on March 30, 1870
