Seems to be always from one side. “Progressive” blacks hating whites. “Progressive” whites hating whites, and there’s still some old-school klanners kicking around.
An expert witness paid with tax dollars by the United States Department of Justice testified that North Carolina election laws impact black voters disproportionately and that blacks are less sophisticated.
Charles Stewart, a political scientist was retained by the Justice Department to testify against voter identification laws and other election integrity measures. His testimony argued that ending same day voter REGISTRATION and requiring voters to vote in the precinct where they live constitutes racial discrimination.
…It’s also the case that — well, yes, so it would, empirically more likely affect African Americans. Also, understanding within political science, that people who register to vote the closer and closer one gets to Election Day tend to be less sophisticated voters, tend to be less educated voters, tend to be voters who are less attuned to public affairs. That also tells me from the literature of political science that there are likely to be people who will end up not REGISTERING and not voting. People who correspond to those factors tend to be African Americans, and, therefore, that’s another vehicle through which African Americans would be disproportionately affected by this law.
…As I said before, this is particularly a mechanism and a time that’s well situated for less sophisticated voters, and, therefore, it’s less likely to imagine that these voters would — can figure out or would avail themselves of other forms of registering and voting.
Yep according to this PAID representative of the US Justice department voter ID laws are racist because blacks as a whole are too dumb to register to vote….
Who’s the racists again? Can you imagine if a conservative said this?
