    Oh, and I almost forgot about the literal grandfather clause for the literacy tests! If you were unable to pass the literacy tests, you could still vote if your grandfather had been eligible to vote.

    In the post-civil war south, what do you suppose the effect of that was?

What counted as an incorrect answer was up to the person "grading" your test at the polls. The real way to pass the literacy test was to be white.
    I so look forward to your links proving such.

    It's like the voter IDs. On paper, they don't apply differently based on race. It just happens that the ID's are harder to get in black neighborhoods.
    No they're not! Stop embarrassing yourself with that crazy argument!

    You are aware that there are more than 11 states effected by sections 4 and 5 of the VRA. Yes?

    My point, you must be asking? Let's stop with the falsehood that the VRA only applies to, "the south".

    Bascially, stop frettin'. It's going to be ok. I know you've been to, "the south", but things aren't as nightmarish here as you try to make them sound.

    You piped up about literacy tests and now you're running away from discussing it.

    Now you're back to defending things like randomly postponing elections or reducing poll hours in black neighborhoods? You agree with that sort of thing? Or do you condemn it?

    I already invited you to post links. Where are they? Afraid that--once again--history will prove your propaganda to be incorrect?

    Now you're back to defending things like randomly postponing elections or reducing poll hours in black neighborhoods? You agree with that sort of thing? Or do you condemn it?
    When did I defend that? However, it was the Libbo media that announced early poll closures in Florida in 2000. I bet you weren't bitching about that too loud, since it caused thousands of Republicans to stay home...the Republicans who couldn't vote in the middle of the day, because they were at work.
