Professor says “anti-democratic” system blocks candidates like Stein

In a piece at The Root on the Black Lives Matter movement and the presidential race, Wayne State University Associate Professor of African-American Studies Ollie Johnson praised Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Johnson said Stein “is the most progressive of all the candidates but would never win because the entire system is flawed. ‘The political system is anti-democratic. Most Americans think they vote for president when they go to the ballot box,’ Johnson said. ‘They don’t. They vote for someone to cast a vote in the Electoral College. And the Electoral College is totally unaccountable to the people.'”
