About 10-12% of eligible voters do not have a photo ID.
The vast majority of these are poor and elderly.
These 10-12% are also disproportionally black.
It has to do with being poor not being black.
The Republicans pass these laws because they will prevent more Democrats from voting than Republicans.
So when Republicans pass these laws, they are well aware that they will be stopping a disproportional number of blacks from voting.
Do they have ID's to cash their welfare/SS checks? How about to buy liquor/cigarettes? To get on an airplane? To go to the doctors?

Again, you just keep babbling and running away.

Back your bullshit up. Prove it. You give a reference. Show your proof.

The definition of religion is a belief based on faith. You make statements you can't prove as a matter of an unfounded belief, a belief based on faith.
You're just another religious nut in the world.
Those who rationally deduce there may be a God, but recognize that they cannot define him in detail are not a problem in the world. Those people like you, who assume to have the knowledge of God, then pontificate your speculations as if it is universal fact, are the problem in the world.
Just like other categories you assign to people, you accuse others of being what you, yourself, are guilty of.

In 2007 Georgia passed a photo ID law

"The number of photo IDs issued by Georgia to individuals who did not already have one of the forms of ID acceptable under state law is remarkably small, averaging less 0.05 percent in most years, and not even reaching three-tenths of 1 percent in a presidential election year. Georgia’s actual experience matches other data, such as a survey conducted by American University of registered voters in Maryland, Indiana, and Mississippi. It found that less than 0.5 percent of respondents had neither a photo ID nor citizenship documentation.[4] A 2008 election survey of 12,000 registered voters in all 50 states found fewer than nine people who were unable to vote because of voter ID requirements.[5] This completely contradicts the unsupported claims of voter ID opponents that there are hundreds of thousands of voters in every state who do not have a photo ID or the claims of the Brennan Center that “as many as 11% of United States citizens…do not have government-issued photo IDs.”[6]

The increase in turnout of both Hispanics and blacks in the 2008 presidential election after the voter ID law became effective is quite remarkable, particularly given the unproven and totally speculative claims of the Justice Department that the voter ID requirements of Texas and South Carolina will somehow have a discriminatory impact on Hispanic and black voters.[7] In fact, Georgia had the largest turnout of minority voters in its history."

How did they prove ther were eligible voters, moron?

I've got an idea, though. You know all those school busses that empty the school district parking lots every election day? Use those busses to go pick up all those people who you claim can't go get an ID, and take them to the ID getting place.
Now that we've solved that problem, what other problem do you have?

You're so right my little dweeb.

Oh wait! Better still, show me where they offered nuclear engineering degrees back then!

i just did. are you attempting to argue a topic you don't have even the slightes knowledge of? again?!?!

no one has rationally deduced there must be a god...no one..

the god of the bible does not exist. to date, there isn't one single teeny shred of credible evidence of any god, gods or goddesses. not one.

"utility factor"???...... you mean make it easy for the fools to waste their money???....
terrible odds are terrible odds and the lottery has the worst odds possible.....
The utility factor says that betting a couple of dollars that you could easily spare to buy a couple Powerball tickets where you could win millions is a good bet. You won't miss those dollars if you lose & winning is a life changer. Even though the odds say no.

Likewise, if you have 100 million in the bank, its not a good bet to wager 99 million of it on a bet even if you could double your money with 80% chance of winning because the gain does not radically change your well being where a loss would cost nearly all your money. Even though the odd say it is a good bet.

We have a President who is half-white but declares himself for all practical and political purposes to be black. Why? Because that's where the Liberal Media keeps the focus.
Why go off focus?
Hahaha, funny how that works, isn't it??? I wonder why he never speaks out about all the blacks that kill blacks? How about the blacks that kill whites? How about speaking out against racist blacks like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Jeremiah Wright.
