I had to read through this story twice. Then I let 24 hours pass - just so I could muster a rational response to it. I mean.....****.
Alabama was where the impetus for the 2013 challenge to the voting rights act came from, that made it unnecessary for the states with the worst records of discriminatory practices - like Alabama - to get federal approval for changes in their voting practices.
Hell, it was brutality against people working to gain voting rights in places like Selma Alabama that was the catalyst for the 1965 Voting Rights Act in the first place.
Well, Alabama is at it again. The state of Alabama has just decided to stop issuing driver's licence's in all the counties that have 75% or more black population. this putrid act comes one year after the state enacted their strictest ever voter ID laws. So, now they have mandated that you need a driver's license to vote while at the same time making blacks have to travel outside their home counties to even apply for a driver's license. clever, huh?
******* conservative republican dirty pieces of ****. But I'm sure they'll swear it's 1) NOT racial - oh, heaven's no. 2) only done to ensure voting integrity and avoid fraud.
Alabama, Birthplace of the Voting Rights Act, Is Once Again Gutting Voting Rights
