The soft racism of low expectations: obtaining valid ID is a problem for minorities.

I am amazed every time I see photo ID mentioned as a tool for suppressing minority voting. Just what is the unique challenge for minorities to obtain ID? I see minorities driving cars, buying alcohol or cigarettes, flying, etc. Things that require ID. Claiming that minorities can’t get an ID card is pretty much the same as calling them a vile racial epithet.

Retired and living my golden years in a world full of angry people.
