ID opposition condescending

I cannot figure out why President Obama and most Democrats say voter identification laws discriminate against African-Americans. Such a low opinion if they think Black Americans are not capable of acquiring identification. States are even offering to provide ID’s for free.

Identification is required to enter buildings and airports all over the country, yet for some reason Democrats don’t think Americans should be required to show identification to vote to ensure honest elections because poor blacks can’t get ID’s.

Truly astounding.
