In the United States, African Americans were not effectively guaranteed the right to vote until 1965. Although in some places, blacks were allowed to vote long before the passage of the Voting Rights Act; and during one period (immediately after the Civil War), blacks were allowed to vote even in the deep South.

Well this is an answer of opinion.

My opinion is that all people: no matter color, race, gender; should be able to vote! People are people and there should be no discrimination between white and black.
