The Left Demands ‘Vote Reparations’ Wants Votes Counted Twice

A law school professor is calling for “vote reparations” for blacks to make sure elections are fair. 

“Vote reparations would empower us to replace oppressive institutions with life-affirming structures of economic, social, and political equality,” Brandon Hasbrouck, an assistant professor at the Washington and Lee University School of Law, wrote in the Nation last week. “And if our elected representatives did not prioritize this transformational work, we could vote them out.”

Hasbrouck teaches law and critical race theory and claims the “core problem” with the United States election system is the electoral College. Professor Hasbrouck mentions that Wyoming’s 580,000 residents are 93% white, but the state gets “three electors because of its two senators and one representative in the House.”

“By comparison, Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District — which includes Atlanta, has 710,000 residents, and is 58 percent Black — has no dedicated electors or senators and can only occasionally overcome the mostly white and conservative votes from elsewhere in the state,” Hasbrouck wrote.

The Professor claims the system devalues black voters and claims the only remedy is “by double-counting ballots cast by all Black residents.”

“Vote reparations should also extend to Native Americans,” Hasbrouck continued. “Slavery is rightly called America’s original sin, but so too was the United States’ genocidal seizure of land from its original inhabitants.”

“Because white votes currently count more than Black ones, double-counting Black votes would restore electoral balance,” Hasbrouck said. “Vote reparations would be a giant step toward remedying our nation’s long history of denying and devaluing Black votes.”

He added: “Even if vote reparations aren’t instituted, Black voters will keep tirelessly dragging our states toward a more perfect union. But just imagine our country if our votes counted twice.”

Liberals are doing everything they can to tear down the US Electoral System and rig it to make sure they win every election.
