Good Morning and welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. This morning we will discussing the following topics:
SEGMENT 1: Voter Suppression-Georgia Rep. John Lewis, one of the civil rights movement’s few remaining living legends, successfully prevented an effort by a House colleague and fellow Georgia lawmaker Paul Broun to defund the Justice Department’s ability to enforce Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
SEGMENT 2: Gay Marriage Support-The president of the United States came out this week in support of gay marriage. How will this play in November?
SEGMENT 3: Florida Justice-Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville, Fla., received a 20-years prison sentence for firing warning shots against her allegedly abusive husband. She told police it was to escape a brutal beating by her husband, against whom she had already taken out a protective order. After the Trayvon Martin case, what is really going on in Florida?
