The Political Agitator Response: It is a damn shame that a certain group of folks want to do everything they possibly can to attempt to attempt to keep blacks from doing so many things in these USA. Hell it has been the mission of a certain group of folks to see black folks have nothing. These ignant racist white folks need to understand that black folks and other folks who are being mistreated by them are not going to take it and we will fight!
WASHINGTON — Civil rights groups have spent a decade fighting requirements that voters show photo identification, arguing that this discriminates against African-Americans, Hispanics and the poor. This week in a North Carolina courtroom, another group will make its case that such laws are discriminatory: college students.
Joining a challenge to a state law alongside the N.A.A.C.P., the American Civil Liberties Union and the Justice Department, lawyers for seven college students and three voter-registration advocates are making the novel constitutional argument that the law violates the 26th Amendment, which lowered the voting age to 18 from 21. The amendment also declares that the right to vote “shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of age.” (Source: New York Times)
