My question is ?? How can some people say lt's 'RACIST' for a poll worker to ask 'ID please' when l VOTE??
Everything is raycist now especially if it requires someone to act like a frickin human.
It is racist for Miami Beach police to arrest some people for screwing in the street.
It is not racist were they to arrest other people.
If you have not yet realized that laws which apply to all people equally are racist, you have not been paying attention.
This is America today. Check your damn privilege at the door and shut up.
First look at who is branding everything be it group, individual, thing or behavior racist and you will have your answer:
Its mainly the media, DEMOCRATs, academia, West and East Coast elitists. You will find these are the same people bringing about cancel culture and have an intense hatred for anyone who does not agree with them or their ideology.
Trust me this racist, woke, equity, inclusive, police brutality, ANTIFA, BLM, voter suppression crapola is going to go full circle and bite these morons in the butt.
Chiefr NAILS it.
Asking for ID in order to Vote runs contrary to their agenda of getting as many entitled, illegal, brain dead and flat out dead people to Vote as possible.
When that doesn't work, rig the Voting machines via algorithms and rig the Vote/Cheat, in conjunction with fabricating as many "Mail In Votes" as necessary to mathematically (miraculously) Win.
Worked last time, and they will continue to use that Playbook, unless called on it. (And) That has not happened.
Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁
the left want to have vote free and often with no ID what so ever ..
but amazing they all insist if it goes against them or trying to get them out of office then the votes its required three forms of government issued photo ID finger prints a note from home and notary sealed in front of four judges to count before and then just maybe considered
Anything said or done by a white, male, American is racist.
I have to show ID to vote!
It's the law that you need to be a citizen to vote, but they want to make it illegal to make someone prove it? Also saying minorities are to stupid to get Identification isn't racist but asking them for one is?
I have adopted a new definition for the word "racist"
Anyone who starts at a starting line and does his or her best to get to the finish line first.
To answer your OP question, BECAUSE YOU ARE WHITE.
"Let me circle back to that later!"
There is Nothing Racist about asking for ID. If anything, it is the ultimate equalizer. EVERYONE is asked for ID.
Go try to buy Beer. Etc.
Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁
An recent incident at our Prompt Care illustrates ID requirements. Sitting in the waiting this young Black teen walks to the desk asking to see the DR. The lady at the desk who was also Black said she needed to see an ''ID'' before he could see the DR. He insisted he did NOT have but was Very Sick and must see the DR. Desk lady snapped back, ''Nobody sees the DR without ID. Those are the RULES''. Was she being raciest?? NOPE. As she said, ''No ID , No DR''.
btw. Teen came back shortly with ID and then got to see the DR
