Our Election System is Based on 5 Black Ppl Being Worth 3 white but the US is definitely a Democracy
I know because my fascist government that sends its CIA to destabilize other countries it criticizes for not being democracies in bloody coups that kill millions of innocents all over the world while waging genocide against Black people for over 3 centuries while begging me to send $3 to a white cis man in order to save the country from another white cis man told me so...even though we don't have a direct election method and I actually vote for another random person in my state to vote for me--not the president. See you November 4th (InshAllah).
