New Law Threatens To Undermine The Black Vote In 2012

According to the Root, Civil rights leaders claim that a recently passed law that requires voters to show photo I.D. threatens to undermine the strength of the black vote in the 2012 election.

The law, which requires voters to show state-issued identification may keep millions of African Americans who lack the time and resources needed to obtain the proper documents from the polls.

Barbara R. Arnwine, executive director for the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, said:

“The time and resources needed to acquire the identification as well as lack of easy access to the needed underlying documents, such as a certified birth certificate and other forms of documentation, are particularly burdensome on minority, low-income, elderly, disabled and student voters.”

These people are scared to death that President Obama will get re-elected again!!!!
