NAACP Requires Photo I.D. to See Holder Speak in State Being Sued Over Voter ID

According to Holder, it is an undue burden along the lines of a poll tax to expect the "minorities" to pay out for supporting documents (birth certificate/etc) and travel long distances to acquire the free state issued ID's that are offered. Must suck to be such a vunnable that this is considered an outrageous difficulty. Now I see why they just continue sitting in front of their 52" LCD TV's watching cable and Redbox rentals or playing $60 XBox 360 Games and wearing $200 shoes instead.

What is with the hatred for minorities? Can we really not have an honest discussion about whether requiring a photo ID to vote will better serve to suppress minority votes or root out voter fraud? Why does this have to degenerate into, "I see black guys walking around with Jordans. I can't afford Jordans, so they must be wasting my tax dollars!"

I'm sure I'm wasting my time with this comment...

uhm....seems to me the Holder and the Prez made it a minority issue...my mother is ~80...doesn't get around much and she has an ID...and she is white. She is also a yellow dog democrat and even she says people ought be showing ID's to vote...of course she is still white and there irrelevant.

Earlier today, Attorney General Eric Holder addressed the NAACP Nation Convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. What did media need in order to attend? That's right, government issued photo identification (and a second form of identification too!), something both Holder and the NAACP stand firmly against when it comes to voting. Holder's DOJ is currently suing Texas for "discriminatory" voter ID laws. From the press release:

All media must present government-issued photo I.D. (such as a driver’s license) as well as valid media credentials. Members of the media must RSVP to receive press...
