Rev. Jesse Jackson supports constitutional amendment ensuring right to vote

Fresh off his asinine comment that the senseless killing of Australian Chris Lane should be “frowned upon,” Rev. Jesse Jackson is now lamenting the absence of a right to vote in the U.S. Constitution.

Technically, he has a point. As conservative tweeter Jay Caruso notes, there is no explicit “right to vote” in the U.S. Constitution:

It’s not the first sentence of Jackson’s tweet — “We still have no constitutional right to vote” — that is problematic. It’s the second one: “Surely, that is the next step toward the dream.”

More than 126 million Americans of all races, colors, and creeds voted in the last presidential election.

Turnout among black Americans was higher than turnout among whites. If there is a conspiracy to suppress the African American vote, it’s failing miserably.

That Jackson thinks an unnecessary constitutional amendment is “the next step toward the dream” shows how out of touch he has become with the concerns of ordinary citizens.
