OPPRESSING THE VOTEVia Mobtown Shank
overheard by Josh Slates
SETTING: Fells Point, recent Monday afternoon.
PLAYERS: Two twentysomething women on a shopping excursion.
[Woman #1 notices an African-American gentleman wearing a pro-Obama T-shirt and remarks to her companion.]
WOMAN #1: You know, that's the problem with Barack Obama: he's trying to get all these black people to come out and vote. Doesn't he realize that most black people have, like, at least one felony conviction and can't vote anyway?
