*** Idaho's racist image may change
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Northern Idaho, predominantly white andrural, has been home for nearly three decades to the racist AryanNations. It has struggled with a reputation as a haven for hate. Butresidents say a $6.3 million jury verdict returned Thursday againstAryan Nations founder Richard Butler and three of his followers forattacking two people near the sect's compound may be the first steptoward rehabilitating the region's image. Morris Dees, the co-founderof the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., and one ofthe attorneys for the plaintiffs, said he intended to enforce thejudgment, taking everything the Aryan Nations owns, including itstrademark name. He even suggested turning the 20-acre Aryan Nationscompound into a center for tolerance, teaching about the Holocaust.See http://www.infobeat.com/stories/cgi/story.cgi?id=2569591337-14a*** Also: Aryan Nations leaders says Racists To Stay in Idaho, seehttp://www.infobeat.com/stories/cgi/story.cgi?id=2569623619-e86

I call that total mind control and brainwashing rhetoric to the fullest!
Thwarting the measure's intent were a number of actions by states that sought to keep blacks from the polls.

On Election Day in 1920, millions of American women exercised their right to vote for the first time. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy: Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. But on August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. source
