Remember when we argued for 20 pages about the difference between blaming racism for something and unintentional racial discrimination?

nonsense. If you're eligible for entitlements, voting democrat definitely pays - better than some jobs.

and if it's about motivation and you don't have an ID and you're too lazy to get one, then you'll probably come up with some reasons not to vote anyway. How many people do you think are in that marginal category where they don't have an ID and are only ambitious enough to vote if they're not required to get one?

Faux Ruse cherry picking polling whites in Berkley CA and blacks in Harlem NY...lolz.

When the non-existent massive voter/voter registration fraud is really the "soft" racism.

And not where voter suppression is being practiced, mainly in red Southern states with a high rural/smaller city/town populations.

Looks exactly like they want it to, with all too simple digital editing.

yeah, all those goddam uncle toms up in Harlem - they're too easy to cherry pick. They don't represent black America - just ask any woke white guy, like you.

Holy shit your saying all anyone needs is a id and and they can vote ...Holy crap you may be on to something Hack!!!! Please by all means tell that to the GOP!!!


But alas once anyone takes the day off to get said id the faulty thinking GOP will ask you to get another form of id. Lol. Make it easier for everyone to vote is sadly not in the GOP playbook.

I have lived in and worked with mixed race/ethnic areas & groups for most of my life, so there never has been any "waking" necessary on my part.

Well, which is it?

Are people choosing not to do the relatively simple processes to get registered to vote and then actually vote because they feel it isn't worth it, or are people's voting rights being suppressed?

Doesn't make sense to me that it's both.

Well, if they're already red states with red state demographics anyway, a few black people having their voting rights suppressed isn't really going to make much of a difference anyway.
