NAACP Urges U.N. to Investigate Racist US Election Laws …(Black People Can’t Get ID’s)
The former civil rights group known as the NAACP urged the United Nations today to investigate racist UN election laws. The far left organization says its too hard for black people to get ID’s.
That sounds racist.

And it’s harder for Democrats to cheat when they have to show an ID.

Charging that millions of citizens, two-fifths of them black, have been denied the right to vote because of felony convictions, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People called on the United Nations this week to investigate America’s “racially discriminatory election laws.”
An NAACP delegation visiting Geneva hosted a panel on the “disenfranchisement” of U.S. citizens and addressed the U.N. Human Rights Council, which is in session in the Swiss city.
A delegate told the HRC that the right to vote was a cornerstone of democracy and that in the U.S. a patchwork of divergent laws and procedures have posed barriers to voting.
The NAACP urged the U.N.’s “special rapporteur” on racism to investigate “racially discriminatory election laws,” and said the HRC should then make recommendations that would restore the political and voting rights of all citizens.
On Tuesday, the delegation hosted a panel on the subject at the U.N.’s Geneva headquarters.
“Today, nearly 5.3 million U.S. citizens have been stripped of their voting rights on a temporary or permanent basis, including more than 4.4 million citizens who are no longer incarcerated,” said Lorraine Miller, who chairs the NAACP national board’s advocacy and policy committee.
“More than two million are African American, yet African Americans make up less than 13 percent of the U.S. population,” she said.
Miller said the NAACP commended Attorney-General Eric Holder for his efforts to “prevent the implementation of recent challenges to voting rights.”
