You will recall, of course, that the 2000 presidential election was decided by what happened in Florida. Here are several interesting little factoids culled from a report about that election:
* About 80 percent of black voters vote Democrat.
* About 11 percent of Florida voters in 2000 were black.
* About 180,000 ballots cast in that election were rejected.
* About half of the rejected ballots were cast by black voters.
Of course, the final results were determined not by a verified, accurate counting of the votes, but by a Supreme Court decision that gave us George W. Bush. When the actual counting of the ballots was stopped, George Bush was ahead by less than 600 votes.
Yeah, it was a dozen years ago. And yeah ... you're damn right I'm still pissed!
