    Instead they focused on the bogus issue of voter ID preventing people of color to vote.

    Dip****z.
    Is it really surprising. NAACP did a study on the relation of crime and welfare. It found that for a 50% increase in welfare there was a 110% increase in crime. But they still support and back pro-welfare candidates while bitching about the number of black men in prison.

    It's a liberal organization, not one based upon bettering black people. This proven by both the op and it's illogical approach to issues like I mentioned. Only Liberals and other leftist could be that illogical.

    No, that has more to do with separation of church and state.

    The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
    So with that mission statement I would think they would celebrate the first black person elected to a statewide office in a southern state post reconstruction. Is that not part of eliminating race-based discrimination?

    Well, I'm just trying to see whether the statistics and rule of thumb used by Turtle actually apply to black Republicans. I'm sure they will, until they get elected. I think what is interesting is that Nikki Haley (a minority, even though she's shed her ethnic names) appointed another minority (Tim Scott) for office, and that minority seems to favor companies making stronger efforts to hire minorities. But I am sure none of that is Affirmative Action now.

    Privilege would mean that only colored people would need IDs, while whites just stroll up and vote no questions asked.

    Only the "other" is a product of AA. The "us" exist in a world without AA.

    That's probably one of the things you like most about him.

    You know if there is any person who can't afford an ID, have them step up. I have no doubt they would be taken care of somehow.

    Oh, I haven't even begun to state my feelings on this matter. I am actually glad Republicans have realized that race does matter in elections. The fact that a Southern state finally made the decision to elect a black male without meddling from Republicans is progress. It doesn't matter that Tim Scott was initially picked for his position by another minority. Ironically, Tim Scott's election by the historically progressive Republican party is doing the same exact thing Republican carpetbagger efforts did in the 1870s.
