Republicans Targeted Blacks
Last updated 8/2/2016 at 1:40pm
On Friday, three judges of the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the state’s voter ID laws passed in 2013 by the General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. McCrory violated the 14th, 15th and 26th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The findings of fact in the case reveal that those who passed the law did so to disenfranchise blacks under the knowingly false pretense of combating fraud.
The court wrote “the new provisions target African Americans with almost surgical precision … and, in fact, impose cures for problems that did not exist.”
