Georgia Republicans have just passed a 21 Century Jim Crow voter suppression bill to make it more difficult for Black Americans, and other minorities to vote because of their recent election losses.

If your policies are unpopular with most voters, and if your party narrowly lost an election because of a voter surge, and if your own party’s demographics are shrinking, what do you do? Do you change your policies so your party platform is more appealing to more voters? Or do you make it harder for people to vote?

Apparently, if you are among the Republican leadership in Georgia, you make it harder for people to vote.

On Thursday, Georgia Republicans passed restrictive changes to the state election process. Republican Gov. Brian Kemp immediately signed a bill into law that President Joe Biden accurately labeled "outrageous," "un-American" and "Jim Crow in the 21st Century."
