“If voter ID comes to NC, Apple and Amazon shouldn’t”

Rev. Barber and Rashad Robinson oped in The News & Observer:

Apple and Amazon have a clear choice: they can stand by their stated values or they can stay the course of enabling the N.C. General Assembly as they re-enact Jim Crow-style voter suppression in the state. Make no mistake, history will remember how our leading companies chose to condone or condemn the rolling back of civil rights laws across our country.

The parallel to Roseanne Barr is striking. We can only hope that in the case of racist policy, as well as racist rhetoric, the public, the media, and powerful corporations are just as willing to take a stand.
