North Carolina Is Really Trying To Keep Black People From Voting
After an appeals court struck down North Carolina's racially discriminatory voter ID law, the state is still pushing for similar restrictions.By Eugene Daniels, Grant Suneson | August 19, 2016
North Carolina isn't letting new court rulings stop it from making voting harder in the state this year. In July, an appeals court struck down the state's voter ID law and its cuts on early voting.
A court found North Carolina specifically gathered information on what avenues more minority voters use, and then eliminated those avenues or created other roadblocks. There's no hedging here — North Carolina's voting laws are racially discriminatory.
