    Really?

    Talk about off ****in' topic......
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    For most of our history laws favored whites. so we passed laws, executive orders were issued, and the Sup. Ct. rendered decisions to change that, i.e., we took steps to end de jure or legal segregation and other forms of discrimination. But because the harm was so great for so long, we took steps to remedy past wrongs the effects of which are still felt today. For example, when you deny blacks education, access to the best jobs, etc., that's a disadvantage that is passed on to the next generations, just as advantage is. So, let's take affirmative action ... it was a response to institutional racism and it required employers to take extra steps to make sure they got a good pool of minority and female applicants ... in the end, the best candidates got the position. As far as voting was concerned, the feds took steps (remember, this was renewed several times, the last time in 2006 - bipartisan support) to ensure that certain states were not doing anything to prevent blacks from voting. There was evidence that some were, which is why certain areas were targeted ... in fact, more recently, Texas tried to pass a law that would have a disparate impact on Latinos in the state (it would prevent 10% of Latinos from voting and only 4% of whites from voting) and the feds stopped them ... but now they can go ahead with it ... Does this help? It was a little rushed, but I hope it does ...

    It is humorous how any effort to ensure people are eligible to vote is deemed 'suppression' by the left. Please tell me why it is wrong to validate eligibility?

    You and I know what they're up to Woodman ... the GOP knows it is in trouble given the demographic changes that are taking place -- voter suppression is one of the few choices they have ... Texas's voter I.D. law was barred by a federal court in 2012 because it would curtail the ability of minorities to vote, but now they can proceed ... we'll see how all this plays out in the long run ... I think the GOP is being shortsighted ...

    ... i am required at many times to provide identification before obtaining services for various things far less important than voting. I would not hesitate to provide it at the polls and never understood the objections to doing so. and you didn't answer my question.

    How is this racist again? Oh I get it, if progressives point out the truth about how racism messes with the mind of people like Thomas, it's racism. Denouncing the effects of racism is racism.

    Jesus, conservatives are dense.
    Since your number 2 point applies directly to you, I guess it isn't racist after all.

    I thought "his own people" were all Americans, I guess I was wrong.

    I did ... you're just not getting it ... I can't help that ... have a good one ... (BTW, did you know it's easier to buy a gun than to vote? Crazy world, isn't it?)
