Because, after all, minorities don’t have the capability that whites have of getting official IDs.

LOL! The only way you could have been in the room watching Holder live to witness this yourself is if you had a photo ID to get past security.

So even withHolder knows his people are inferior and cannot be expected to have the same ID as the rest of us!

Maybe Texas should prohibit ANY state benefits be distributed unless a valid ID is shown. Lets see how long before the incapable find out how to get some ID.

Thanks withHolder for belittling your own people. Got to keep them on the plantation don’t you?

Eric Holder on voter ID laws: ‘We call those poll taxes’

Do these far left extremists want another civil war? Is there any other choice.

Isn’t Texas a minority-majority state now? CA sure is. The Left wants whites to be a minority but does not want whites to act like a minority, i.e. view themselves as a unique people with their own interests, desire for political power, etc.

So according to the democrats, there are 50 million uninsured Americans.

The government intends to identify these 50 million Americans, inform them they must buy insurance, or impose a fine on these 50 million individuals if they do not buy insurance.

Yet, they’re helpless to assist this small minority that must be showing up regularly at government centers for their welfare check to get a photo ID?

When will the persons Holder allegedly speaks on behalf of rise up and tell him, “Enough with the racism, we are not at war with our fellow Americans, we are not pathetic, we can and likely have ID, and can stand on our own without standing on the backs of others.”

Call me crazy, but I’d say the appropriate response from Holder should be to ensure voters have access to reasonably priced (perhaps even free) ID’s. There’s nothing wrong with having to validate who you are. It’s how we prevent FRAUD... unless of course that’s the intent from this corrupt member of a corrupt administration.

And NOT having voter ID law is harmful to majorities.
And I'm talking political majorities here, not race.
If you can get an ID to buy smokes or booze or cash a check, then you can get an ID to vote.
It's not that hard. If you are legal. And there's the rub.

What’s it gonna take Eric?

You’re fighting our Voter ID law here in SC. After we agreed to give IDs to whoever for free (they did cost $10 I think). And after we agreed to give whoever free transportation to the DMV to get their ID.

What’s a state to do? What else can we do to simplify this process for “your people?”

Although I notice folks of all colors don’t have a problem showing ID at the grocery store to buy tobacco or booze.

See, here’s the trick. We’re on to you Eric - you don’t care about folks having ID. You just don’t want them to be required to show it to vote. That would have serious consequences for voter fraud. Now we get to the nut of your problem.

Dumbass.

Yes, it certainly is harmful to minorities; specifically the minority who are Mexicans and snuck across the border illegally.

Assuming they’re still a minority in the state; it’s becoming difficult to know such things.

TRANSLATION: “Minorities are inferior and cannot be expected to obey any rules.”

I think you're being too kind to Holder.

ACTUAL TRANSLATION of Holder's assertion: "Minorities are too stupid to figure out how to obtain an Id."

(Yet these same minorities are somehow are able to gain an ID to purchase cigarettes and alcohol)
