No matter what you may think of black people in Milwaukee, you know this for sure: They did not sneak here over the border from Mexico. They were born in the U.S.A. Their parents were born here, and so were their grandparents and great-grandparents.

According to the Constitution, their right to vote is undeniable. Yet the government of Wisconsin has denied it so that the current leaders can stay in power. To their true supporters, the end justifies the means. For others who actually believe the airy justifications for selective voter identification, it is just gullibility.
