African Americans may have made errors because of the anxiety they are likely to feel at the polls, where in the not-very-distant past they would have routinely faced threats, violence, police harassment, and worse.

Threats? From who? Violence? At what time in the past forty years, if then? Police harassment? Oh, you mean routine license checks more than two miles from the polling place or polling officials with the temerity to actually ask them to for their frickin' ID! "Worse" than this? Ooh, I shudder to think!

This line alone should have given this a mandatory volcanic barf alert!

Let's see I was asked to produce ID at my polling place before I could step into the booth {SHUDDER} ... I think my vote for Bush should be counted twice just because of the stress factor.
