Supressing the African-American vote?

John Kerry in a speech to the Congressional Black Caucus said ;

"We are not going to stand by and allow another million African American votes to go uncounted in this election,"

In what election were a million African Americans votes not counted?
We are not going to stand by and allow acts of voter suppression, and we're hearing those things again in this election.

Please name just one name from the 2000 election where a vote was suppressed.
What they did in Florida in 2000, some say they may be planning to do this year in battleground states all across this country. Well, we are here to let them know that we will fight tooth and nail to make sure that this time, every vote is counted and every vote counts.

Who did what in Florida? It makes me laugh. All over the state people voted with no problem at all. In south Florida, supposedly the "smart" part of Florida, people couldn't read a ballot made by a Democrat and it was all the Republicans fault. And he goes back to the "make every vote count" line, except of course, you happen to cast your vote via the military then, your vote shouldn't count.

Right after the 2000 election the U.S Commission on Civil Rights found absolutely no evidence of disenfranchisement of the African American vote. As a matter of fact there was no proof the ANY Floridian was intentionally denied their right to vote.

What they did find was that many Floridians made mistakes on their ballots. Mistakes do not equal disenfranchisement. They also found violations of the Voting Rights Act in three counties. It seems that some poll workers had been hostile to Hispanic voters, bilingual assistance hadn't been provided to two Haitian voters and some Hispanic voters had been denied bilingual assistance. Oh, this happened in counties controlled by democrats.

You have been proven wrong over and over again by groups that support you. 4 years folks, get over it.
