National Survey Shows Support for Voter ID Laws Strongest Among Those with Negative Attitudes Toward African Americans

So, causation or correlation -- oh wait, it doesn't matter.

Voter ID and Race

A new National Agenda Opinion Poll by the University of Delaware’s Center for Political Communication reveals support for voter identification laws is strongest among Americans who harbor negative sentiments toward African Americans.
Voter ID laws require individuals to show government issued identification when they vote. The survey findings support recent comments  by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who portrayed a Texas photo ID law now being challenged as similar to poll taxes used in the Jim Crow era, primarily by Southern states, to block African Americans from voting. Holder pledged to oppose “political pretexts” which, he said, “disenfranchise” black voters.

Typical, anyone who does not want their vote stolen, by advocating photo ID, is "racist".

It must really chap you that nearly every public library is "racist" when it comes to getting a library card. The Federal Courthouse is "racist" in Milwaukee, because they will not admit you without a photo ID.

Ohh...and those darn "racist" food stamps, you need a photo ID to get those as well.

And what about that "racist" university you work at? Gasp. They require you to have a photo ID to even be on the campus!

When will you fix the racism at UWWC?

There are five amendments to the Constitution that delineate citizenship rights regarding voting and that such rights should be unimpeded except by age. None I can find regarding library cards and what restrictions may not be applied.

You're a silly person, Kevin.

I see no reply. Must be that fact thing getting in the way ... again.
