    Another bad poll. It's not partially outdated, it's completely outdated. For goodness sake, we have a black president (of which liberals like to constantly remind us of -- of what relevance this info is most of the time I don't know).

    The logic seems to be that the VRA of 1964 is "outdated?" Do we not remember that the VRA was necessary a century after the 13 Amendment was ratified because racial oppression was still a daily reality in the old Confederacy?

    @OhWiseOne
    I live in kentucky and the fact I hear a white person (like myself) use the word 'nigger' atleast once a week is enough proof I need that racism is alive and well.
    Dont get me wrong, its not only white folks who are racists..
    racism is funny like that.. it doesnt discriminate against who it infects ;) ive met brown black yellow pink purple all the colours of the rainbow people who were biggoted against atleast one other colour of skin.
    Its really sad, but we arent ready to get rid of laws like this. One day maybe, and i hope soon... not yet though.

    I wonder how much this group of "Black conservatives" are being payed by the Heritage Foundation or Koch Brothers or whomever? To even begin to believe that the bible belt does not discriminate against minorities is to believe I'm the frigging Pope. You may kiss the ring.

    @Denizen_Kate my experience with the black culture of today is that they do anything unless they're getting paid. I don't blame them for that but that's a reality that I saw every day for 30 years.

    @drpeeper The problem with your statement is that if the black community would think for themselves they wouldn't be Democrat or Republican. Nobody would.

    The VRA is completely outdated, not partially outdated. If anything, it needs to be completely overhauled or removed altogether. When you have any Knucklehead just bringing in a utility bill and being allowed to vote, we have problems. It's already bad enough the majority of idiots don't pay attention at the ballot box to begin with. I would make a couple simple changes. First, Government Issued Photo ID Required, NO EXCEPTIONS. A photo ID from the DMV (be it a drivers license or walking ID) costs a mere $10. If you can't afford to go with out that pack of Newports or those couple of beers and get a Photo ID, then you probably shouldn't vote. Second, must be a resident of the respective voting district, NO EXCEPTIONS. The Photo ID would quickly clear this up. Lastly, voting, like owning firearms or driving should be a privilege, not a right. If you go off on a felony binge, you should not be allowed to cast a ballot.

    I dont see anything racial. But I just hope they are not trying to keep Obama as a president cause of his skin tone. I feel like we need someone who cares about the American people and who will care about all races. Just not one of them. A good Christian president.

    No matter how many oreos you put up, the behavior shown in the last election proves that voting rights still need protection.

    I agree. Blacks can be so much more than on the welfare gimmedat voter that Obama, our HALF WHITE president, wants.

    Don't get me wrong on this I'm not racist, and I'm not condoning racism. But isn't it there right to be racist and aren't they still Americans, its there right to be ingorent. Are we not all endowed by are creater with certain unalienalble rights. And if we supress the racist regions vote what determines this, areas where Obama didn't get the mojority vote, and if we accept this idea of suppressing somes votes do to their ideas where does it stop.

    Maybe we should keep it for a while just as a reminder of how sad these areas used to be in their treatment of their fellow humans....

    the last states to recognize SSM should be treated similarly for a half century or so....

    By that logic, liberals dislike Rush Limbaugh because he's a black conservative who "doesn't fit the mold"?

    In a color blind society I would dislike rush limbaugh as much as i dislike clarence thomas. In fact i do, i judge them both idiots by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Gee, its funny, wonder if MLK Jr. would say that means his dream has become a nightmare.

    @Politicskid But I think that was a good move. There were too many frivolous petitions being sent to the White House. Death Star, indeed!
