I’M NOT QUITE SURE ABOUT THAT

The 15th Amendment to the Constitution granted ALL American men the right to vote by declaring that the
“right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.“
A record number of U.S. citizens — nearly 6 million — will sit out the upcoming presidential election because they are incarcerated, on parole or probation, or are ex-felons.
You have a Previous Condition of Servitude with your call by society’s Judicial Branch and if you can be qualified to pay taxes you can vote or you would also suffer taxation without representation. I would emphasize that previous condition of servitude does not reflect “color,” and color is mentioned separately from “previous condition of servitude.”
