I'm pretty sure everyone is aware Trump is calling on his more hardcore supporters to go out and prevent blacks from voting and such.

Are there any socialist etc. groups going out there to defend the minorities under attack? Sure voting sucks and all, but I'd rather be mistaken for someone who defends the ballot box than someone who lets racist attacks go on.

Shouldn't we be out there defending these minorities, not because we care about their right to vote, but because we care about the physical well-being of the working class?

I agree, and I think the "left" really fucked up in not attacking the ongoing 36 year voter suppression, voter exclusion, and jerry-mandering program of the bourgeoisie. We have been really outmanuevered on this, basically because we were too stupid to make a move.

As for defense, I don't know if any socialist organization is sending poll watchers to challenge those challenging votes.

I'll bring this up and be vocal about it at the WSWS/SEP thing this weekend
