  • “Literacy” Test Louisiana Gave Black Voters in the 1960s

    It's good to be white

    This is terrible. I'll bet the whites that took it passed, no matter how they did.
    That said, the laws requiring a would-be voter to show a photo ID are not racist.

      It will be under Obamas Immigration bill.

        once the white man got sick of the whining and let women and blacks join in, everything went to hell in a hand basket...

              Whites were exempt from the tests.

                  Keep the bar as low as possible.

                  There is now a plan to make voter registration compulsory when applying for da wefare.

                    Where should the bar be? Maybe only people with conservative leanings should be allowed to vote. Or only liberal? Who is going to determine who gets to vote?
                    There is an enormous amount of stupid, uninformed people out there. Should all of them be blocked from voting?

                      Low information types are being fertilized by Hollywood, and harvested by liberals. There is now a bidding war for handouts, given the folly of legalizing up to 30 million illegals when un and underemployment remain sickeningly high.

                      I say the price of admission is a photo ID and proof that you paid 5 cents in income tax.

                        Yet study after study suggests that liberals are smarter and more informed. Hmmm.

                            Should we start quoting Nanci Pelosi et al now?
