Way back in 2016, Texas was assured by an appeals court that photo ID is racist. Even a free voter ID is just too burdensome for the poor to obtain, and minorities are more likely to be poor; therefore, ID is racist. The Fifth Circuit determined that “the poor are less likely to avail themselves of services that require ID, such as obtaining credit and other financial services. They are also less likely to own vehicles and are therefore more likely to rely on public transportation. As a result, the poor are less likely to have a driver’s license and face greater obstacles in obtaining photo identification.”

So here we are in 2022, and Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bower is reminding citizens that they’ll need a photo ID “before heading out.”

Remember that starting Saturday you will need these three things before heading out:

1. Proof of Vaccination (12 years +)
2. Proof of Vaccination and Photo ID (18 years +)
3. Mask

Wait. Requiring ID is racist

IDs are racist… Did you not get the memo?

Great. Now do voting.

Since you’re okay with showing a photo ID to get into a restaurant, you support IDs for voting, right?

— Beth Baumann (@eb454) January 11, 2022

Weird, I do recall hearing that it was racist to require ID for things.

What do I do if I’m one of the repressed, urban folk that can’t get an ID? Ya know, like for voting and stuff? Is that ok?

#JimCrow, @MayorBowser!

Can we also get the same requisites for voting?

What if my destination is a voting booth? I’m told any kind of proof of identification is oppressive in those areas.

Thought IDs were discriminatory. So confusing

I’m too poor to afford an ID and don’t even know where to GET ONE

— Giraffe (@longdicctrades) January 11, 2022

You’ll need an ID to go inside a McDonald’s in DC, but not to vote…

Beyond parody.

I feel terrible for the underserved communities you constantly talk about not being able to obtain an ID to vote. Now there are so many other facets of life they will not be able to enjoy.

I remember when we were told this is crazy talk.

No blood tests? Why you half assing it?

Can’t make this stuff up!

I didn’t vote for this.

I need a mask to walk out of my door?

Drunk on power. I’m glad I don’t live there.

Thanks for making it easy avoid DC!

Remember that the CDC Director unraveled the entire premise for your restrictions yesterday during testimony.

Two weeks to slow the spread.
