NC Politicians (GOP) Are Also Diabolically Racist!!

A Diabolical New Ploy to Suppress Black Voter Turnout
A new North Carolina measure claims to expand access to voting but is likely to have the opposite effect.

Since the 2013 Supreme Court decision overturning parts of the Voting Rights Act, North Carolina has been in the vanguard of legislative voter suppression. First, Republicans in the state passed a huge law containing five different provisions aimed at discouraging voting, from limiting early voting hours to excluding certain forms of identification used disproportionately by black voters. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocked the measure in 2016 because it “target[ed] African Americans with almost surgical precision.”

Since then, the state GOP has succeeded in pursuing further rollbacks of early voting and in purging thousands of voters from the rolls. Republican legislators have also managed to get a constitutional amendment put on the ballot this November that would require voters to show ID at the polls. If it passes, the measure would likely “block the Democrat-controlled state Supreme Court from striking down any voter ID requirement,” the former counsel for the North Carolina Legislature told HuffPost.

Given that impersonation fraud is essentially nonexistent, that proposed constitutional amendment is clearly an attempt to suppress turnout among likely Democrats by making voting harder. Although the North Carolina GOP has never been very good at hiding the intent behind its voting proposals, a pernicious new law just passed by the legislature suggests that might be changing. The statute, which passed over the Democratic governor’s veto, claims to expand access to voting but is likely to have the opposite effect. “It looks like another attempt to surgically target African Americans,” said Courtney Patterson, chairman of the Board of Elections for Lenoir County.

The new measure, which will take effect for the upcoming midterm elections, requires every early voting site in the state to stay open 12 hours a day each weekday (in addition to any weekend hours). By mandating such a large number of hours, the new rule will make it prohibitively expensive for some counties to operate early voting locations. Because the law was passed very late in the legislative session, after many counties set their election budgets, many smaller counties will likely be required to close early voting locations so they don’t overspend. “This bill came out of nowhere. County officials weren’t told about it,” said Tomas Lopez, the executive director of the civil rights group Democracy North Carolina. “It’s making it much more expensive to actually conduct an early voting program that reaches as many voters as possible.”

Not that I have to, but I will remember this ploy when certain posters try to ask why blacks support the Democratic Party.  The Democrats are not the ones trying to surpress black votes!!!!

the crackers here in North Carolina have lost their minds. If ID was the concern, where did all this other crap come from?   :shrug:

The GOP never implements something to advance easy access to voting. It's always the opposite.

The worst part is that they openly make jokes about their actions. They are not even trying to hide it.

How is this voter suppression of Blacks?  The poorest counties mostly have a white majority. 

Using the logic of you people, New York state is extremely racist.  They don't have early voting.  The General Assembly there has never allowed Blacks to vote early.

I've said it before on here: 

We are the test market.  If it works here, expect the national GOP to take it up as a plan of action.

First it was voter ID.  Now it's early voting.  Here's a novel idea, completely do away with early voting.

So what’s your positioning on the gerrymandering of redistricting for the sole purpose to rig elections?

Nope, shows that in some respects N.C. is more liberal than N.Y. state on some issues.

It's voter suppression because the purpose of this proposed constitutional amendment is to lessen the number of Black voters.

I'm not sure what point you are trying to make when you say the poor counties who may not be able to have early voting are majority White. Suppressing of the Black in all counties throughout the state would certainly have an effect on statewide and national elections, wouldn't it?

Even in local elections in poor counties with a White majority, a suppression of Black voters could sway an election.
Take for instance the county cited in the article, Lenoir County, a rural area of about 60,000 people near Raleigh. Lenoir County is 53% White, 40.5% Black, and 6.6% Hispanic. If the county was roughly split in half between Republicans and Democrats, the suppression of Black votes would likely sway an election to the Republican candidate.

Your argument that North Carolina's plan to cut back on early voting isn't racially motivated because New York has never allowed anyone to vote early is unpersuasive.

North Carolina had early voting and it resulted in an increase in Black voter turnout. There exist evidence that North Carolina lawmakers wanted to cut back early voting to lessen Black turnout. How can you say New York is no different when New York has never had early voting. North Carolina enacted something, and then when they saw it benefitted Blacks, they cut it out. That did not happen in New York.

As an aside, New York has been criticized for not having early voting:

The Problem with Voting Rights in New York

It would be easy to conclude, based on this familiar story, that the contemporary struggle for voting rights is just another battle in the old fight of white Southerners who want to keep African-Americans from the polls. This view is not necessarily wrong, but it’s certainly incomplete, because the state with one of the worst records on voting rights is the nation’s great citadel of liberalism: New York.

.... because doing away with early voting would lower voter turn out. Shouldn't the goal be to increase voter turnout?  :shrug:
