On the August 27 edition of MSNBC's The Cycle, co-host Krystal Ball said today's Republican Party has “taken the place of Jim Crow” in threatening voting rights: “Fifty years ago, the March on Washington focused on ending Jim Crow, a disgusting villain that hid behind the law to deprive people of their votes, and sometimes their lives. Fifty years later, we have no Jim Crow and without a villain to focus on, it’s hard to get people fired up. Congratulations, Republicans. You have taken the place of Jim Crow. You are now the people conspiring to keep folks from voting.”
