Pop icon Cher is known to use her platform to raise political and social awareness.

This time, the singer is calling out Republicans for “achieving the dream” of White supremacy after passing a slew of changes in Georgia of voting laws.

The Turn Back Time singer turned to Twitter and criticized the GOP lawmakers in Georgia, calling them “immoral.”

She wrote: "‘VOTER SUPPRESSION’. 2 Words That Define Immoral Republican Pols. They Bring Jim Crow Back,Wrap Themselves In The [flag],&Have Gone 2 ‘Whites Only’2 BLK, ETHNIC,& POOR DEMS FROM VOTING,& WINNING.IF THERE R NO DEMS 2 PROTECT[America],Gop WILL ACHIEVE THE DREAM THEY’VE 4. ‘WHITE SUPREMACY.’”

As per a report by Georgia Public Broadcasting, the new law includes early voting access for most counties with an additional mandatory Saturday and codifying Sunday hours as optional. Apart from that, early voting hours from 9:00am to 5:00pm or 7:00am to 7:00pm have also been standardized.

Moreover, it also makes presenting a state-issued ID a compulsion when requesting for an absentee ballot while also limiting the number of drop boxes in the state and also putting a ban on food and water within a 150 feet radius of the polling place or 25 feet away from a voter in line.
