HOUSTON (AP) The head of the NAACP says the group's fight against conservative-backed voter ID laws that have been passed in several states is akin to the great civil rights battles of the 1960s.
Benjamin Todd Jealous, the CEO and president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, told delegates at the group's annual convention on Monday in Houston that these are Selma and Montgomery times.

“.....these are Selma and Montgomery times.”
This is such bullsh!t. If I were Black I’d be embarrassed to tears.... and I’d be mad as hell.
These White hating race baiting bastards are destroying any progress that the Blacks have enjoyed since at LEAST the 1960’s.
If we were to return to the “Selma and Montgomery times”, it will be at the hands of the Blacks.
I am so sick of this race crap.
They should be protesting the DNC in NC because the only way to get into the Convention is by..you guessed it..an ID CARD..also Michelle Obama had some event and you could only meet her if you had an ID card..WOW those racists, racists I tell ya
They'll all have an Obomacare card. They can just use that.
Everyone will have one, so there won't be a problem with the "poor" (freeloaders) getting access. They'll be climbing over broken glass to get their "fair share" of everyone elses paycheck.
Obomacare cards are a perfect form of voter ID - because Oboma said in his State of the Union address illegals won't be covered by our tax payer dollars...... didn't he?
Or did he lie right into the face of every American watching? "I did not have sex with those illegals - never, not ever."
"Obama uses taxpayer cash to back ACORN Name changes used to dodge the law"
The Obama administration has showered its allies at ACORN Housing with $729,849 so far this year despite powerful, newly unveiled evidence of corruption and massive accounting irregularities at the longtime affiliate of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). Watchdog group Cause of Action recently pressured NeighborWorks America, a taxpayer-funded federal nonprofit that funneled more than $26.5 million in federal foreclosure-avoidance money to ACORN Housing, to disclose an internal audit furnished to then-Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, Connecticut Democrat, late last year.

our tax dollars at work to fund the left...
Obama campaign working to counter new voter ID laws
I worked in banking for over 20 years~if there were two forms of I.D needed to cash some “hand out” check~~they had all the I.D. needed!
I was Jealous of the sixteen year olds...
Ben Jealous? Been Jealous?
He's not only black he's green.
African-Americans have more opportunities this day and age than ever before. In education, careers, athletics, socially, etc. But these opportunities are squandered when ‘racism!’ is the constant drumbeat.
Obama Campaign Checks IDs At The Door
Jessica Kershaw, the Obama campaigns Ohio Press Secretary, confirmed in a statement to BuzzFeed that the campaign checked every supporters identification at the door.
We checked every ID at the door to make sure it matched with the name on the ticket that supporters filled out, she said. We did this for every person who came in.
think of all that disenfranchising going on!OH THE HORROR!
Taking advantage of those opportunities ain't "keepin' it real."
Because the left cannot allow talk of voter fraud to gain any traction, they had to invent a rationale for objecting to perfectly logical voter ID laws. The answer? What else? 'Racism!" As Jon Lovitz used to say (in his persona as 'Tommy Flanagan, The Pathological Liar' on SNL) "that's the ticket!" Trouble is, racism has nothing to do with voter ID laws and most Americans realize this, making the NAACP look like the phony race-hustlers they are when they try to equate their objection to voter ID laws as a racial struggle. The NAACP has taken the good will most whites felt toward blacks who endured the '60's racial battles and squandered it by making absurd connections to perfectly reasonable voter ID laws and calling that 'a racial struggle' Hardly. More like a 'keep voting fraud alive' struggle. Shame on them.
Sorry, Bubba Jealous. Gay is the new Black. You're irrelevant. You're just too dumb to realize it.
They desperately need to maintain the idea that whites are keeping them down. The possibility that the main thing keeping them down is their own inadequacy is something they cannot face.
Good link. Many of those same methods are used in Wisconsin, except that it is exacerbated by our registration at the polls.
It’s cuz I’m white,right.
WHO are they? ..show them to me.
And why are they only Democrats?
Logically, that could and should be true. But the masses of liberal morons who inhabit this country (50%+) get their information from a leftist media that will never tell them that so they will never know. It tells them the voter ID laws are racist and they believe it.
