To impersonate a registered voter and using a dead persons vote is very unlikely, and even less likely to sway one. Lastly, the bias of the media cannot be counted as a way of rigging elections and it has always been a factor.
In this quote, Brown argues that by claiming equality and justice for the masses that have been excluded or marginalized, the whole definition of equality could be altered. By recognizing these groups, it does not necessarily mean that they are now being treated with equality, it just means that they are being acknowledged for having a place in society but they are not necessarily important. The left might now recognize groups that have been marginalized for years or even decades, and announce it publicly but this action could just be false rhetoric to persuade others that there is equality for everyone. Therefore, claiming justice or equality is a dangerous action.
