    Ok, why not a little more? We don't want felons owning guns, and we don't want "undocumented aliens", or dead people, voting. Right? We're still trying to tighten controls on the right of gun ownership, after all, and a right is a right.

    You don't have the slightest understanding of the basis of AA.

    Further, you would be advised to get back to the topic.
    Black folks have no less oppurtunity to succeed in this country than anyone else.

    IIRC there are black, female millionares, in the world. All eight are American.

    Unlike voting, firearms ownership is gauranteed by The Constitution.

    IMHO, it is not that they have increased poverty (it has remained between 12% and 15% since 1965) but they have made it reasonably comfortable not to work anywhere near enough to get many off of those "safety net" programs. Many that now get "safety net" assistance do (some) work but simply not enough to support themselves much less their dependents. The aim appears to be to make any job pay a "living wage" and let the "Walmarts" figure out how to fund the "living wage".

    Of course, that "living wage" means higher prices for all U.S. goods/services - thus raising the federal poverty level (and increased SS COLA payments) but that is a problem for later politicians to solve (kicking the can further down the road). What many do not see is that the federal gov't gets at least 15.3% of every "extra" dollar of wage income, from the first $1 to the SS cap (about $110K), so that increasing the MW is a windfall for the federal gov't too - they may think that we can simply inflate our way to prosperity.

    When the "controls" used disenfranchise FAR more people than there could possibly be cases of voter fraud to eliminate, then it becomes an issue of whether it's worth the cost.

    Where's the evidence that anyone is going to be disenfranchised?
