Most voting laws now days are designed to keep blacks from voting.
jd what are you talking about? can you be specific in the voting laws you are referring to.

This is a pretty good explanation of how voting laws work and the ID requirements. I am caught up in a ID problem at the moment. Been voting for over 58 years. And now to renew a drivers license you have to have a birth certificate. The license that was issued to me 63 years ago and renewed with the spelling of my name not being same as the birth certificate. The spelling of the first name was wrong but when pronounced it sounded as the way my mother spelled my name from the day I was born. Also the name on my voter registration card has the name spelled the same as my 63 year old license. I know truck drivers that all of the sudden have to produce a birth certificate and their old license name does not match. Hope this makes sense. A lot of minority people in Texas do not have kids in the hospital but some at home with a midwives. I really doubt if my mother and father actual ever saw my birth certificate as in was filled out by the doctor and registered.

Got to have some rules to stop the illegals and unregistered from voting. Then you have those dead people who vote.
How do you think LBJ ever got in office?

Name spelling mis-matches on birth certificate and on drivers license are non-discriminatory. I had the same thing happen. Not hard to fix. The reason mine didn't match was because I wrote my name down and the license person copied it down differently. This happened decades ago. When I went to renew the first time I told them to spell my name right and they said I'd have tp bring my birth certificate in to get it changed. Which I never did until the last time I renewed when birth certificates were required for renewal. Nine times out of ten, when my name is copied from my writing or from me just saying my name, it is mis-spelled. It happened in a hospital one time when I was going in for surgery and the name on my wristband didn't match the spelling on my medical chart. Everything came to a standstill for a half hour while they sorted it out.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

If you don’t think today’s jay birds aren’t rounding up illegals and others to violate voting laws you must be in the ostrich party.

Says you and Kris Kobach when really checking it out found to be more illegal voting in the party with the R beside their names. Even when caught they lie about it.

I watched the jay birds growing up, saw the white uniforms, Jim Crow, poll taxes, blocking the university doors .
The uniform color has changed to black the politics are still the same. The Great Society Slavery sales pitch was just better marketing.
Makes me wonder how anyone can support the party of slavery, founders of the KKK, Jim Crow along with marched in anti-segregation protests.
I saw it extremely well as Great grandpa was the big lizard in Texas .

Thanks for the fivethirtyeight link you posted, but didn't think it was very convincing that the voter id requirements caused suppression. The article cited a study, report, and survey data, but no evidence of what has been asserted that I could tell.

Come on Hurley, this is 2020 not 1920. Trump is liable to pick up 30% or more of the African American vote and 40% of the Hispanic vote. Why would we suppress that?

If any race in America should be proud of how far they’ve came it’s the blacks. Unfortunately some, not the majority but some can’t let the past go. This is America and I truly believe anyone can become anything they want. Sure it will be harder for some to get ahead than others but that’s just life. If you’re a poor black kid living in an inner city fight to get out. If you’re a poor white kid living in a small town drug invested dump, fight to get out. I’ve got a 75 year old black lady that lives next door to me that I know saw real racism growing up. She doesn’t act like she holds a grudge instead she comes down to talk or have supper a few times a year. I didn’t like it when she had the Obama sign up but understood and respected it. Like was said above it’s 2020 not 1920. Politicians are shady people and will always try to sway the vote in their favor no matter what race they are.....remember there’s allot of black politicians too. I’m done with this thread.

I think this is the voter suppression Hurley is talking about.


It's called a majority, Hurley.

We bought a house four years ago and the previous owners daughter kept getting a voter registration at at this address. We finally took it in and showed it to the voter registration people. They looked at it and said she had been voting in the last four elections and she voted absentee and was having the ballots mailed to a Dallas address. Now was she voting or someone looking at the list and asking for a ballot and voting in her name.
