I hope you're not suggesting that black people by definition can not be educated because that is certainly what it sounds like you're saying.
As for "whats in it for the 'hip hop ebonic speaking young black man.'" you might want to ask one because only that person can answer your question. I nor anyone else can speak or take responsibility for an entire race.
When you say black people, who are you speaking of? I hope you mean to address your arguments towards a particular class of people (i.e., uneducated and willfully ignorant) not a racial group. No race has a monopoly on ignorance.
Keep in mind, Topix is filled with a plethora of racists. This is a format where they can express themselves and bypass a beatdown.

Expect for them to show us what their parents taught them. It's not their fault usually, people hate because they are not loved. Unfortunately, most of the time is lack of Education.

Choose your battles wisely...lol

Haa! Good point! However, I highly doubt that anyone would go to the trouble of doing that. People are basically pretty honest.
There was a couple in their 80's who work every election, but they were far from feeble, they were super smart and knowledgeable and everyone loved them. They were the oldest, most of us were in our 50's, one young man was probably 30. It was a fun experience but it was in a Masonic Hall with no windows! Strange place!

"Land of the free" doesn't mean that everything is free, doofus. Since 9/11 many property managers require a photo ID for every adult that will live in a rental property. Security has a price; it's called honesty. I'm a natural born citizen and I had to show a photo ID to vote in 2008. Stop being a crybaby and manup, transparency doesn't hurt like you claim it does.

We have a hard enough time getting people out to vote in this country and Republicans want to make it even tougher. It's assinine.

And you didn't rant and rave about "disenfranchisement" ???
"there were no problems"
Why? You didn't work at polls in a "rich" neighborhood, did you?
Surely you volunteered your time working at polling stations in poorer areas to ensure that those big, bad Republicans didn't
disenfranchise "the poor", "the elderly", "minorities", etc, etc.,
etc.! Right?
So why weren't there any problems? What had been done to ensure that the voting process went smoothly?
I can't speak for other precincts, only reporting my personal experience. This is a small neighborhood

Some of these posters are idiots that can't comprehend what they're reading, others are trolls just out havin some fun.

Driving is a "privilege" which comes with costs attached.

Cashing checks, renting items and so on are matters of trust and commerce not government.

Voting is a " guaranteed constitutional right" for US citizens of age whose civil rights are intact. A Poll tax__or__any other tax is an infringement upon that right.

Pretty much, Republicans would have you believe voter fraud is rampant. We can barely get people out there to vote. It's a crock.

They will do anything to try and suppress the vote because it is in their best interest. If they had decent policies and actually cared about all Americans and passed laws to back that up they wouldn't need to suppress the vote.
Or it might be that they are trying to stop illegals from voting????? You know, Obammie's voter base.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Think the Justice Department can handle this.

The Justice Department and the Texas Legislature are squaring off in court today over the state’s controversial voter ID law.

The law requires voters to show photo identification at the polls, and Texas hopes to implement it before the November election.

The DOJ blocked Texas’ voter ID law in March, saying it will disenfranchise at least 600,000 voters — a disproportionate number of which are Latinos and other minority groups.

The Twenty-fourth Amendment prohibits both Congress and the states from conditioning the right to vote in federal elections on payment of a poll tax or other types of tax.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but people don't have to pay a tax to get a photo ID. Do they?
It would seem like a pretty big stretch, otherwise, reading it any other way.
It is a stretch, a big stretch. They are calling any expense in getting a photo id a poll tax. They are getting loonier by the say.

Brilliant thinking.
America hates ObamaTax. Making Dems debate its worthiness and vote for it again is good politics. Reminds America of how ObamaTax was shoved down their throats.
