About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Post Civil War Apartheid in the U.S.

"Within three years of the Civil War's end, 'black voter registration ranged from 85 to 94 percent in the deep South, and almost one million freedmen were voting throughout the region.... By 1944, in the states of the old Confederacy, only 5 percent of age-eligible African Americans were registered to vote.'"
