Voter intimidation


La Shawn Barber comments eloquently and provides perspective on NAACP claims of voter intimidation in this country, seen in the perspective of the Iraq election.

Iraqis, threatened by throat—cutting Islamofacists, still managed to vote. Yet the NAACP regards blacks as impotent children incapable of casting a simple ballot for fear of the white man at the polls. (The butterfly is so confusing!) You can't punch a simple hole on a simple ballot? Try it with no fingers or hands or arms, for crying out loud. That's disenfranchisement.
