We [THEMATHISNEAR and TMFPMarti] simply disagree as to the politicians' motivation [as to whether they intend "racing to disenfranchise black voters"], targeted voters [of voter ID laws], and effect.

I admit I'm not really following this thread, just happened to see selected portions of posts.

But are you seriously suggesting that laws requiring voters to show identification at the polls are intended to disenfranchise any significant number of legitimate voters?

And if so, are you suggesting the laws do (or would) actually achieve such disenfranchising? If so, for specific laws, or voter-ID laws inherently (regardless of efforts made to minimize voter impact)?
