Racist Voter ID Laws Lead to Increase in Black Voter Turnout

Liberals claim that voter ID laws are racist, because those who are more likely not to have government-issued IDs are Blacks and Latinos. So, they reason that conservatives must have a hidden racist agenda to keep minorities from voting.

Of course, the flip side is that liberals know that they’ve successfully bought the minority vote by promising them a bunch of free stuff. They have a tremendous vested interest in making sure these large and growing voting blocs – many of whom don’t have IDs – can vote, because they’re far more likely to vote Democrat.

Obviously, there’s politics on both sides and the typical tired and clichéd race-baiting from the left. But a recent study showed that in North Carolina, which requires photo ID to vote, saw an uptick in black voter turnout. The study’s findings came a week before a scheduled hearing called by the Department of Justice, in which they will ask a U.S. District Court for an injunction against North Carolina’s voter ID law heading into the November midterm elections. They’re arguing that such a law will suppress the minority vote. Unfortunately for the DOJ, the opposite happened:

Comparing May 4, 2010 North Carolina primary election data with the May 14, 2014 primary data, the study found that voter turnout increased across the board, but particularly among black voters, where it increased by 29.5 percent, compared to an increase of white voter turnout of 13.7 percent. The findings were based on Census Bureau data and public names who signed the voter rolls.

Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, commissioned the study and included the findings in an amicus brief for the July 7 hearing. Judicial Watch was joined in its legal brief by the Allied Educational Foundation and by former Buncombe County commissioner candidate Christina Kelley Gallegos-Merrill.

The North Carolina law also eliminated same-day voter registration, which is why Gallegos-Merrill joined the brief. She alleges that her close loss in the state resulted from ineligible same-day registrations.

North Carolina adopted a law in line with 37 other states that don’t allow same-day voter registration, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.

If Republicans are racist, then if anything, they should be opposed to voter ID laws in North Carolina. They’re causing more black voters to turn out to vote. Just who are the racists again?

    The reason black vote has increased is because racist voter ID laws has galvanized the black vote!

    • Eagle2758

      But they showed that ID,eh.

    • OzCop

      Yeah…so where’s the suppression….they got their freakin’ ID’s didn’t they..Voter ID is no more of a suppression to black voters than it is to white voters and if liberals had any common sense they would understand that…

      Haven’t you abandoned this ridiculous stance yet?
      Voter ID racist??
      So when blacks complain Santa didn’t come to their house because they’re black, will you still support their claim?

      • LABobfromNYC

        Jessica, I thought you educated yourself? You told me that if it was a fact that 10% of LEGAL voters lacked proper ID AND their wasn’t a shred of evidence of inperson voter fraud beyond 1 in every 20 million votes you would not support voter ID’s. WELL???? Those are FACTS!

    I can only speculate as to why this is happening, and considering some of the things that many black people are saying, I suspect they want to make sure they are viable come election time, as they are well aware that Hispanics are now the priority in this country, with Muslims running a close second. Muslims don’t need our jobs, they’ve got money pouring into them from abroad, but the Hispanics are absorbing all the entitlements and attention while the black man’s prospects are worse now than ever before.

      I say keep the Hispanics, they work…deport the blacks, ghetto thugs, NAACP, ACORN, the Black Caucus, Crips, Bloods, the NBA…we don’t need those moochers

      I have no problem with an upswing in black voting, especially when voter ID is required.
      Goes to show, requiring ID won’t keep the minority voters away.

    Every time you fly you have to have a state issued ID. Everything else you do you have to show a state or federal ID. So everyone in the U.S. is racist. In FL to get a Drivers license renewed. You have to have a Certified Birth Certificate. You have to have a utility bill with your name and address. You have to show them your Social Security card. You have to show them an up to date Insurance card. So our tax collectors must be the most racist people on earth. I had lived in FL 25 years when I last renewed my drivers license .

  • TinStarred

    ……yeah, just look at what happened in Mississippi.

    If blacks and latinos do not possess government ID cards how the hell do they sign up for Obama care, cash checks, drive cars, get an EBT card, get subsidized housing. This is the biggest scam played in a long time to claim discrimination – sounds like Jackson and Sharpton worked overtime on this one.

    There are many privileges we have that require a photo ID, including a driver’s license, buying alcohol, verifying ID for a credit card purchase, and many, many more. So why is it racist to require a photo ID to vote when voting is certainly much more important than buying alcohol or driving? Of course it is NOT racist but the commies and traitors who says it is racists must find excuses to maintain their control over their voter base.

    What conservatives need to do is expose the lie about racisim. There is only ONE race on the planet, Homo Sapien which means it is impossible to be racist. Next, expose the true liberals like Margaret Sanger who founded that bastion of concern for the poor called Planned Parenthood. Ms Sanger, a known liberal, formed PP in order to make abortion free and easily available to the black community for the purpose of ELIMINATING blacks from America!

    The author George Bernard Shaw, another liberal, was a eugenicist who called for “certain people” to be eradicated because they had no purpose or value to society, so they need to be killed.

    In reality, the poor, most especially blacks, have been used by liberals as puppets to buy their votes so liberals can push their agendas on the country. Liberals are the new SLAVE MASTERS and they need to be exposed.
