Georgia’s governor signed ‘Jim Crow’ voting bill
under painting of a slave plantation
The Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Will Bunch created a Twitter thread about a painting of a Georgia plantation that is hanging behind Kemp in the photograph. Writing about the history of the Callaway plantation in Wilkes county, Georgia, Bunch said the place depicted “thrived because of the back-breaking labor of more than 100 slaves who were held in cruel human bondage”.
While Georgia’s Bigot-in-Chief signed the bill into law, a Black woman who is a member of the state legislature knocked on the entrance to the locked door ceremony…demanding to witness this travesty…the governor had her arrested.
State Rep. Park Cannon…arrested after she attempted
to knock on the door of Gov. Brian Kemp’s office
What passes for “Law and Order” in a state run by corrupt bigots. Republican, Democrat or Independent, policies and practices like these should be shoveled back into the outhouse dungpile that is our racist history.
