Voter ID Is All About Race, And...

First of all, hat tip to James Causey for highlighting the results of a study that links strength of support for Voter ID (read: Voter Suppression) to negative attitudes towards African-Americans.

And to Barbara Miner for an earlier post, too.

Secondly - - I think you can say the same thing about the fringes of the Tea Party/birther movement and its freak-out since President Obama's election: it's all about an unwillingness to accept an African-American president, and African-Americans' full equality in this country.

Thirdly - - to its everlasting discredit, the mainstream [Sic] GOP has embraced Voter ID and the farthest right-wing's race-inspired paranoia to boost Republican electoral majorities, in Wisconsin and nationally.

The party of Lincoln!
