He apparently doesn't see that your weight Norris and I think if you look at and the number of African American people that are in jail. And you look at the rule that ex felons can vote I think you would have to wonder is there a ten year or does it. Unintentionally. Disenfranchise. Black voters. Laurie is that the rule was put in place to punish. Offenders no matter what color you'll are. And as a result. You'd debt gets caught up in net dollars Anderson. Music it was started.
