Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp was called out this week for creating a video that shows a black person without photo ID being denied voting privileges, while a white person is allowed to cast his ballot.
The video, which was published to Kemp’s YouTube page in 2016, is still being promoted by the Georgia Secretary of State’s website. The instructional video was recently noticed by Anjali Enjet of The Nation.
Wow. So on the SOS website #BrianKemp has an advance voting video. Take a look at who gets to vote and who doesn’t. Nice messaging, Kemp. Please just #resign already. #gapol #gagov #TeamAbrams pic.twitter.com/D4gmMeb4Cw

The video uses children as actors to make its point about having the proper ID. A white child is used as an example of a good voter with a valid ID. Soon after, a black girl is presented as someone who should be stopped from voting because she does not have proper identification.
The video shows the girl casting a provisional ballot instead. Provisional voters are given three days to return to their county elections office with valid identification.
Kemp, who running for governor in Georgia, has refused to step down as secretary of state and is effectively overseeing his own election. His office recently came under fire after putting 53,000 voter registration applications on hold. Nearly 70 percent of those registrations belong to black voters, who are largely expected to support his opponent, Stacey Abrams.

Cop says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be shot following Trump’s racist targeting of The Squad
Following racist attacks on members of The Squad by President Donald Trump and his supporters, a police officer in Louisiana reportedly said that one of the congresswomen of color should be shot.
Trump has been lashing out at the four first-term congresswomen, who include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.
Internet piles on ABC reporter for lavishing praise on Trump for allowing press to ask questions
ABC News reporter Kyra Phillips on Saturday heaped praise on President Donald Trump for his treatment of the press.
Despite the White House no longer holding daily press briefings, Phillips praised the "access" she receives from the administration.
"No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access ?Trump? gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question," she said.
She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.
‘Trump wants to start a race war’: Ex-advisor alleges his campaign planned ‘Send her Back’ chants
President Donald Trump is attempting to start a race war in America, a long-time advisor declared on MSNBC on Saturday evening.
Omarosa Manigault Newman was interviewed by Donny Deutsch on "Saturday Night Politics."
"You said could it happen here? It is happening here," Newman told Deutsch.
"As a woman of color watching him attack those four women, it made it very clear that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy," she said.
"And everyone has been kind of tiptoeing what this actually is. Donald Trump wants to start a race war in this country and it started at that rally — it started with the tweets," she said.
