Appeals court holds that it was “passed with racially discriminatory intent.”

"Court strikes down North Carolina voter ID law"
The ruling also invalidated limits the same state law placed in 2013 on early voting, same-day registration, out-of-precinct voting, and preregistration
The three judges assigned to the case — all Democratic appointees — were unanimous that the Republican-controlled North Carolina legislature violated the U.S. Constitution and the Voting Rights Act three years ago by enacting the measure requiring voters to show certain types of photo ID at the polls.
"The record makes clear that the historical origin of the challenged provisions in this statute is not the innocuous back-and-forth of routine partisan struggle that the State suggests and that the district court accepted," Judge DIana Motz wrote on behalf of Judges James Wynn and Henry Floyd. "Rather, the General Assembly enacted them in the immediate aftermath of unprecedented African American voter participation in a state with a troubled racial history and racially polarized voting. The district court clearly erred in ignoring or dismissing this historical background evidence, all of which supports a finding of discriminatory intent."
The court's opinion bluntly described the legislation as a clear effort to suppress the black vote.
I think it's racist to assume blacks can't or wont get an ID.

The Lefties are desperate to keep the vote fraud machine going.

It's the only way they can win.

Every state Romney won had a voter ID law.

NC just went commie. Plain and simple - with the millions of illegals already in the state there will never be any non-democrat politician elected here, ever.

Disparate impact proves nothing. If the law as written stated that EVERYBODY who wanted to exercise the privilege of voting had to show certain specific forms of ID and more blacks than say left handed lesbians failed that test....so what? Is the state to abandon standards altogether? In what way is it discrimination if more of one group than another doesn't meet a UNIVERSAL standard? It's not like NC was demanding that only blacks have to show ID plus a grape drank bottle cap!

The invalidation of reality continues.

It's indefensible what is going on.

The invalidation of reality was a Rush theme today.

I don't understand why Democrats think Blacks are that stupid or helpless. I think I know why they always say there is institutional and systemic racism. Because virtually all our institutions and systems require people to show I.D. Only anarchy is color blind.

Democrats need every avenue to cheat.

It is identity politics. So you should not be a surprise when white voters decide to pursue Identity politics. You asked for it and you are going to get it. Good and hard.

When the government bureaucrats start pushing housing for Section 8 in the suburbs like Westchester you are going to see a result that will shake the foundations of the country.

For every action there is a reaction. This will not be pretty.

Section 8 is one of the biggest scams rolling in government. It's the only way that government can infuse poverty and degrade an entire neighborhood to create the artificial need for themselves. Unbelievable that it's actually a law.
