Aruba Shock: Blacks Gain Right to Vote


In a stunning development Aruba will for the first time allow blacks to vote in the next election.

"I'd like to thank the efforts of the Dutch authorities and all Dutch people in general." said Mickey Johns, spokesperson for Aruba.

"I think it's a sign that Aruba is moving into the 20th century," said Abraham Jones.

The 2 security guards are being promoted as minorities who are thriving under the Dutch system. Just 6 months ago Jones and Johns were out of work security guards and now they own their own homes right on the beach.

"We're grateful to the Dutch for all we have," said Johns.

One local responded by saying, "it's absurd, the next thing you know they will allow women to vote."
