HOUSTON (AP) -- The head of the NAACP on Monday likened the group's fight against conservative-backed voter ID laws that have been passed in several states 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, said these are "Selma and Montgomery times," referring to historic Alabama civil rights confrontations.

The flagrant double-standard is breathtaking.
Barack claimed his parents came together as a RESULT of the Selma march even though the lying bastard was already crapping his diapers by that point.
The NAACP didn’t give a crap. It’s all smoke and mirrors and racist race baiting.
Keep the Democrats on the plantation. Same as always.
Dems for years have stolen elections by having dead voters and illegal aliens voting Dem..this is how Dems have won elections..they know the jig is up and this is how they are responding, with the usual racist garbage. In their minds, they just dont understand how come Republicans dont want dead people and illegal aliens to vote

Seems like the NAACP and democrats are saying blacks are too stupid to carry a valid ID to the polls. What other explanation could there be?
It certainly is not the same thing. Back then, the black people had something to argue. Now they have nothing. The law applies to everybody equally. The voter ID law is simply meant to prevent fraud. The only people who resist it are people who want to continue to perpatrate fraud.
WHO are they? ..show them to me.
And why are they only Democrats?
The Big Lie...
Congrats to these clowns they appear both evil and silly at the same time. No wonder the white demoncrats keep them in the closet.
Except this time it’s them standing in the door of the school/voting place trying to thwart the will of the people.
It’s way past time to put up with their racist crap!
Today I went to a podiatrist to have my great toe examined. I had to produce a photo ID to get past the front desk. Rather than rustle up a sign and a TV crew, I just complied.
I did a little checking and found that 33 states have voter ID laws. Some more strict than others, but fair to say more than half the states require some sort of picture ID to vote in person. Now, if we are to believe the liberal/socialist/leftist/Democrates and their lawyers, there should be a case history file of several hundred thousand people who were disenfranchised while trying to vote. Where are these people? I haven't heard of even one! And to hear Debbie Blabber-mouth Shitzu talk about it, it's an epidemic. Yet she represent a district in a state that has one of the strictest voter ID laws on the books. She should be able to parade a whole cast of characters in front of the cameras. Where are these people???!?
In the 60’s blacks often risked their lives to vote - and somehow this idiot thinks that’s the same as getting a photo ID? Gimme a break.
