Full story: Sunherald.com

The 1964 Civil Rights Act Roll Call Vote: In the House, only 64 percent of
the Democrats (153 yes, 91 no), but 80 percent of the Republicans (136 yes,
35 no), voted for it. In the Senate, while only 68 percent of the Democrats
endorsed the bill (46 yes, 21 no), 82 percent of the Republicans voted to
enact it (27 yes, 6 no).

Thaddeus Stevens, a Radical Republican that introduced legislation to give
African Americans the so-called 40 acres and a mule and Democrats
overwhelmingly voted against the bill.

During the Senate debates on the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, it was revealed
that members of the Democratic Party formed many terrorist organizations
like the Ku Klux Klan to murder and intimidate African Americans voters. The
Ku Klux Klan Act was a bill introduced by a Republican Congress to stop Klan
Activities.

History reveals that Democrats lynched, burned, mutilated and murdered
thousands of blacks and completely destroyed entire towns and communities
occupied by middle class Blacks, including Rosewood, Florida, the Greenwood
District in Tulsa Oklahoma, and Wilmington, North Carolina to name a few.

History reveals that it was Abolitionists and Radical Republicans such as
Henry L. Morehouse and General Oliver Howard that started many of the
traditional Black colleges, while Democrats fought to keep them closed. Many
of our traditional Black colleges are named after white Republicans.

After exclusively giving the Democrats their votes for the past 25 years,
the average African American cannot point to one piece of civil rights
legislation sponsored solely by the Democratic Party that was specifically
designed to eradicate the unique problems that African Americans face today.

As of 2004, the Democrat Party (the oldest political party in America) has
never elected a black man to the United States Senate, the Republicans have
elected three.

I was opposed to Indiana's Voter ID law at first, but after it was passed minority participation in our elections went up, not down.
If these laws are carefully written and properly enforced everyone who has the legal right to vote should have that opportunity.
Absolutely. The only reason to oppose ID is fraud or dead people "voting". When everyone needs an ID to cash a check, travel, use a credit card, borrow money, etc, how difficult can it be? I would think that all citizens - regardless of minority or majority or location would relish having their votes count rather than be watered down by non-living citizen voters.

BTW, why is it not only OK but allowed for some religious pulpits to promote and work for some political belief but not for Christians ministers and priests to mention they disagree with abortion?

Guess rights only apply to the current secular trend, not personal morals one lives by daily.

Funny you should bring that up. The 1964 Civil Rights Act was a disaster for America. If Republicans keep bringing it up that they were the ones that voted overwhelmingly for it, it will sour people on them. I can't believe you thought that was a good piece of legislation. It was NOT.

Why would checking ID at voting polls discriminate against black people?

You must show a photo ID before you can:
- board a Greyhound bus (remember Rosa Parks?)
- pickup concert tickets from TicketMater
- drive a car
- open a bank account
- enter some government buildings.

Is that discrimination?

In most states, blacks are still forced to show a photo ID before they can board a plane, bus, or train. Also, most states require blacks to show a photo ID before enrolling in a public school.

Thse things are True.

I see nothing wrong with requiring ID at the voting poll. I've had to do so ever since I was eligible to vote.
Referring to the requirement as a poll tax is ridiculous. How many people don't have a drivers license or a state issued ID? How do these people get to work, grocery stores, or the voting polls themselves without a vehicle and a valid license?

This is funny, you manage to google research all the hate you can get on Hispanics, Blacks and Obama but come down with amnesia and forget how to use google when you get slapped with a sobering reminder that the Republican party is filled with perverts & pedophiles that advocate a do as I say, not as I do ideology.

Everything you said above are not constitutional rights, VOTING IS.

Since the election is someways away and understandably they don't want their constituents to not vote, so why don't they help these people get an ID? No, instead they want to whine about how unfair it is to not have an ID in the 31st Century. I truly wonder, how can anyone cash a check, receive Govt benefits, get their prescriptions, board a train, plane or even enter some buildings without an ID? I sure as hell can't!
Almost none of the examples you mention require a PHOTO ID.These bogus laws were designed by the right wing to reduce voter turnout among students, seniors who no longer drive, Black people, people who tend to vote Democratic. This whole farce is truly un-American and should be overturned by the federal government.
