11/9/16- Kristen Clarke, President and Executive Director of the National Lawyer’s Committee For Civil Rights Under Law and Roland Martin talk to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the results of the 2016 election.

“My job was to make sure people who turned out got their voices heard. It’s really important that we reflect on the 2016 presidential election that we remember this is the first election in 50 years without the protection of the voting acts right,” Clarke said.

Our new America:

“We have to recognize this is the America we now face. Republicans will control the House and the US Senate. Republicans will now control the Supreme Court as well. This is the end of third reconstruction,” Martin said.

  1. My people!
    Please stop with the excuses. Voting opportunities in this country is plentiful. Their are countries in the world where people walk through actual war zones to cast their vote. The democrats have made it sooo easy. Crooked Hillary lost because she was a liar. President Obama’s legacy will be driven back because he to was a liar. He went over congress and the people’s head to get his agenda done….now it’s over

  2. I think part of the reason Hillary lost is because YOUNG people didn’t come out, and vote for her in drooves. also lots of Bernie’s supporters are still mad he didn’t win the nomination. Several young people told me they weren’t voting because they don’t have a job, so they couldn’t care less about the presidency. For the record…..two of the young people were white, and (1) was black. Also one young man told me the line was too long when he went to vote. It’s clear that (some) young people don’t realize the significance of having the right to vote.

    • I’m older, I went to vote & did not see trumps name on my ballot. my point is how the crap did trump win the electoral vote in Arkansas, I was not going to vote for him but his name was not on the ballot, I would complain but I do not think it will matter

  3. Making it more difficult for us to vote does not excuse our lack of turn-out. Yes, it was more inconvenient; yes, we had fewer days of early voting; yes, we had fewer precincts, and countless other barriers. These difficulties should have made us more determined to get out to vote so that they could not silence our collective voice. These tactics designed by the Republicans should have driven our community to go out in larger numbers than ever before. Instead, we played right into their hands, leaving us with this psycho as our new leader. Those who came before us and fought endlessly so that we could have the right to vote would be ashamed. And if you chose not to vote in this election, when this nutcase turns this country inside-out and all hell breaks loose, instead of complaining, marching, and protesting, sit down and close your mouth.

  4. Making it more difficult to vote =CHEATING!!!!!!

    We can all thank the Supreme Court and that POS Judge Roberts for abolishing the 1965 Voting Rights Act. This act did provide some measure of fairness when it came to African Americans casting their vote.

    Once the Voting Rights Act was gutted-minorities did not stand a chance when it came to protection while voting.

    Therefore, all of the bogus Voter ID laws across the country are also WRONG. All of this was done to SUPPRESS OUR VOTES. And it worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
