    How many black folks have been lynched in the past few years?

    Like you say, you can't argue away history.
    Again, it's simple math... 1 =/= 100

    No matter how much you want it to wash away everything with a sense of equality.

The issue here is not one of perfection in all cases but rather given the hundreds of millions of votes cast in this country does the level of voter fraud rise to the level where we need to adopt a system of voter ID given the risks involved and the already announced intent to use it to the benefit of politicians from one party?
    You said the system worked "perfectly".

    My challenge to that is if the system was working, the fraudulent vote would not have been cast in the first place.

    You seem to believe that the system works because the person who actually owned that vote chose to go to the polling place and the fraud was discovered.

    My question is if this one was discovered simply by chance, how many other instances of fraud go undetected?

    I agree. Therefore I don't. By all means if you think:

    Slavery had nothing to do with racism. -- apdst

    Go ahead and attach your support to that sentiment here.

    You said there needed to be agreement that racism is a problem. I agree--racism is a problem, and not just among whites but all races, including blacks. So what else is new? Like the common housefly, I doubt it will ever be eradicated, especially as long as we make race an issue in this country.

    My point was that racism was a bigger problem for blacks decades ago when a black man could only take a leak in a restroom designated for "coloreds" but he still somehow managed to marry, put food on the table, go to church, and raise and educate a family. Now the bigger problem for blacks is the breakdown of the black family. Blacks need to look there first if they want to solve a problem like poverty, and they should stop using racism as a cop out for lack of material progress or attainment.
