Can Anyone Explain How Asking For Identification At A Voting Booth Is Racist?

A board of North Carolina judges in a controversial ruling Friday tackled the state’s voter ID law, saying it is stacked against Black people.

Two judges on the committee said in their majority opinion that proof shows the law, which requires voters to display photo identification to cast a ballot, “was enacted in part for a discriminatory purpose.”

The decision in Wake County Superior Court also said that the law “would not have been enacted in its current form but for its tendency to discriminate against African American voters.”

The decision referred to a 2015 study by a political scientist which revealed that hundreds of thousands of registered voters in North Carolina potentially lacked ID that would qualify them to cast ballots under the law.
