The civil rights struggles of the 1960's were not pleasant but like all past events seen through the haze of time, generate a sense of nostalgia for many blacks as well as white liberals. Today, black 'leaders' desperately need an 'enemy' to fight because racism, while not extinct, is hardly the obstacle it was 50 years ago in America. The election of Barack Obama took a lot of wind out of the 'America is racist' meme the race hustlers use to agitate 'their people'. So, now, it's the fraudulent 'fight' against presenting a photo ID to vote, which most people understand is a perfectly rational requirement in today's society where ID is required to do almost anything. Obviously, the objections to the photo ID laws are based on the fact that Democrats historically use voter fraud and this law would effectively stop that.

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.

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.

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.
