    :11100: it is difficult for me to believe that a black person could make a statement THAT stupid.

    clearly after a generation or so ALL knowledge of what black people went through and why there was a voting rights law in the first place has been lost.
    yes, those who do not remember the lessons of the past are going to repeat them. some seem anxious to repeat them.
    just cannot wait to get your butte beat.

    i have been accused of not liking the youth.

    i don't think that is really true, however, ignorance such as is being displayed here does make it hard to maintain respect.
    the vote is what saved your black behind from the devils. now some say 'don't vote' while others have drank the devils neo con kool aide.
    black people brainwashed into submission.

    this is depressing.

    Sister ... he didn't call you a name above ... he referred to the statement as stupid, not you.

    Just wanted to squeeze in and make this distinction ... 'cause nobodee gets to call you names.

    Love You!

    What EXACTLY is the problem with an ID being required to vote?

    I have always had to show ID when voting in California, Texas and Nevada, all states with high migrant populations.

    The only time I have not had to show ID was in the last presidential election because I received my ballot by mail-for early voting.

    well like someone says, it's stupid. oh well. i was mocking what someone said about having ID for everything else, eventually to own a gun as well, I think, but hey. It's stupid, like he says.

    The link tells you why:

    The state of Mississippi just ratified the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery.... this year, 2013. Does anyone SERIOUSLY think they wouldn't have CANCELLED that "local election" in 2001 without Congress overseeing their black-hating shenanigans?

    What's stupid? Requiring voters to present proper ID?

    How else do the poll workers know how to verify you are the correct voter?

    Voting fraud is bad enough in some states as it is.
