I cringe every time I see a black person post about how our ancestors died for the right to vote, then fix their mouth to suggest voting for the lessor of 2 evils. Your ancestors didn’t die for your right to vote for a lessor of 2 evils. They died to give us a right to participate in the process they thought would put us on a path to freedom, to vote in our best interest, strategically… to reward or punish using the power of our vote. To leverage our vote. Or not to vote at all as a sign of protest.<br><br>Anyone who reduces your vote to a vote for “the lessor of 2 evils” is reducing the power of your vote.
