Inclusion on the Ballot: Florida and Georgia's Governors Races Are Key Tests of White Supremacy's Hold in the Deep South

To say that the United States has a tortured racial history is an understatement. Segregationist Jim Crow laws (the U.S. equivalent of South Africa’s apartheid system) were on the books in southern states until they were struck down by the Civil Rights Act of 1964—and Lester Maddox (the segregationist Democrat who served as governor of Georgia from 1967-1971) ended up closing his restaurant in Atlanta rather than comply with the law and serve black customers. But in the 2018 midterms, two Democrats that Maddox would have refused to serve in his restaurant during the 1960s stand to become the first African-American governors in their states: Georgia’s Stacey Abrams and Florida’s Andrew Gillum.

'Blue Christian' Pastor Condemns 'Sinful Silence' from Evangelical Churches on White Supremacy

North Carolina veteran pastor John Pavlovitz has been calling out Trump and the policies of the controlling Conservative party, since before the 2016 presidential election. But he doesn’t stop there. He also calls out/condemns his peers and fellow Christians who remain silent during the creation of a pseudo Christian religion devoid of “compassion, love, and commitment to the poor and disenfranchised.” He calls this new religion “a bitter tribe of angry, white nationalists who have no need for the open-hearted Jesus of the Gospels, when it can live off the closed borders of America First.“
