The BS is oozing from this one.
The ruling states that the law was enacted with discriminatory intent, citing statistics that black voters were disenfranchised by the law, being more likely to lack the proper identification required by the law. Further, the law would reduce votes for Democratic candidates, which black voters are statistically more likely to vote for.
The “smoking gun,” in the court’s opinion, came from the state’s justification that the statute hinged on race, and that “African Americans, who had overwhelmingly voted for Democrats, had too much access to the franchise.”
“Faced with this record, we can only conclude that the North Carolina General Assembly enacted the challenged provisions of the law with discriminatory intent,” Judge Diana Gribbon Motz wrote for the majority of the court.
“This ruling is a stinging rebuke of the state’s attempt to undermine African-American voter participation, which had surged over the last decade,” Dale Ho, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Voting Rights Project stated in a press release. “It is a major victory for North Carolina voters and for voting rights.”
Well, guys. ID is racist. So the silver lining? ID no longer required for anything! Head on down to the liquor store and refuse to show ID. Demand products. Get yourself some Obamacare and refuse to give any ID. Hell, next time a cop pulls you over… refuse to show your license! You don’t need an ID to drive! Next election cycle, hit up the DNC and refuse to show them the ID they require, scream racism when they turn you away. After all, you can’t be expected to have ID.
