Because Voter ID laws will force huge numbers of people to stay home. People who are normally functioning members of society. People who are well-informed and self-sufficient in all other aspects of their life, but who can't be expected to have a picture ID because that is so incredibly burdensome and RACIST!!!
For my money, any adult who can't be bothered to get an ID to buy liquor or to go to a pawn shop doesn't need to be giving us his opinion on who should be running this country.
Sit down and shut up.
Voter ID laws aren't to eliminate the black vote. They are to eliminate the stupid vote. THAT comes in every color.
