Shorter MSNBC: Voter I.D. Laws Are Racist, Even Though They Seem Perfectly Logical

Once again, MSNBC has continued to prop up Rev. Al Sharpton’s racist conspiracies that state legislatures led by the GOP are deliberately suppressing minority voters through new voter ID laws.

    Let me get this right.....you can't or don't want to prove that you are a legitimately registered voter but you want to be able to decide how my taxes will be collected and spent? That's racist?

    If a legally entitled voter is too stupid to have official identification, regardless or race or skin tone, he's plainly too stupid to vote.

    Voter ID IS logical, and EVEN Rhode Island which is as Democratic/Liberal as it can be
    thought so! That is why they passed their own Voter ID law.....lol.....

    I guess Rev. Racist
    Al Not-so-Sharpton has forgotten that and MSNBC forgot to tell him, eh? lol

    There is some evidence that such laws are racist in their effect...but I'm reserving judgment on that for now (note - the law itself can be considered racist and not indicate anything about whether it was intended to be or whether the people who support it are. Racist in this context is the most clinical type of racism).

    But I don't really think they're logical when it comes to registered voters. I understand fraudulent registration of voters is a problem - but fix the registration so that it's more stringent then. Then you don't end up excluding valid voters because they lost or forgot their IDs, etc.

    I have to show an ID when I donate blood, so what makes showing an ID to vote such a big deal? How is it racist?

    Let me get this straight, the laws being passed overwhelmingly effect people of color but you don't see how they can be viewed as racist particularly when the evidence of voter fraud is flimsy at best.

    Apparently, Rhode Island thought differently!


    {In July 2011, the Rhode Island Legislature, which is composed MOSTLY of Democrats, signed a voter I.D. law. A number of states this year have passed similar voter I.D. laws, all which were backed by Republicans. Rhode Island state Representative Jon Brein, the DEMOCRATIC sponsor of the legislation, stated "I think that party leaders have tried to make this a Republican versus Democrat issue. IT'S NOT! . It's simply a good government issue. We as representatives have a duty to the citizenry to ensure the integrity of our elections, and the requirement to show an I.D. will ensure that integrity. "[9] Rhode Island DEMOCRAT Senator Harold Metts who SPONSORED the voter I.D. legislation in the state senate said, "As a minority citizen and a senior citizen I would not support anything that I thought would present obstacles or limit protections}

    Good! I think more posters should protect participants from abuse on their polls like that. In fact, I would go so far as to say we have a responsibility to block trolls attacking people who are participating on our polls in good faith.

    Good job, Doofie!

    If your viewpoint cannot stand against the light of reality or someone posting a clipping from a news article, perhaps you should reexamine how you think.

    The laws do not overwhelmingly effect "people of color." The laws overwhelmingly effect every single voter regardless of his color, which is not a factor.

    Liberals think breathing is racist if you're not a liberal.
