The College Board has been accused of indoctrinating students in ‘woke’ politics by requiring them to choose an answer on an AP Government exam indicating voter ID discourages black people from voting.
“Nothing to see here, just an official AP Government practice exam forcing students to falsely say voter ID is racist and urging them to overturn voter ID laws in order to pass the test,” tweeted Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist.
The multiple-choice question asks, “Based on the infographic, which of the following claims would an opponent of state voter-ID laws most likely make?”
Students’ options for an answer are as follows:
- (A) Voter-ID laws are likely to decrease turnout among African American voters because they are less likely to have government-issued IDs.
- (B) Voter turnout will likely decrease by 10% if voters are required to present a government-issued ID to vote.
- (C) Voter-ID laws will likely decrease election fraud, which will increase voter confidence in institutions and thereby increase turnout.
- (D) African American voters who do not have government-issued IDs are likely to participate at the grassroots level and exert influence through channels other than turning out to vote.
Answer A is correct per the test rubric.
The following question on the test asks: “Based on the infographic, which of the following strategies would a group seeking to increase turnout likely pursue?”
Students are expected to select “Lobby state legislatures to overturn voter-ID legislation” in order to be marked with a correct answer.
Pennsylvania Democrats are pushing legislation requiring a photo ID to purchase firearm ammunition.
These are the same radicals who argue voter ID is racist.
The Epoch Times reported:
A bill requiring photo identification to purchase firearm ammunition in Pennsylvania is intended to keep loaded guns out of the hands of minors, according to its sponsor, Democratic state Rep. Brian Kirkland.
Major League Baseball (MLB) announced on Friday that it would be relocating its 2021 Draft and Midsummer Classic from “diverse” Atlanta, Georgia, to overwhelmingly-white Denver, Colorado in response to Georgia’s legislature recently passing some voting reform laws.
The voting reform legislation is being compared by leftists to “Jim Crow” laws and the MLB responded to pressure to relocate its draft pick and all-star game from Georgia. The 2021 Draft and Midsummer Classic will now be held at Coors Field in Denver, home of the Colorado Rockies.This move is ironic, considering MLB relocated supposedly to show support for black Americans.
According to the US Census Bureau, Atlanta, Georgia, has a population that is 51.0 percent black. According to the same source, Denver, Colorado has a population that is only 9.8 percent black. These facts seem to indicate that, as usual, leftists activists and organizations such as MLB are only virtue-signaling rather than really trying to show constructive support for black Americans.
Furthermore, as the Daily Caller noted on Monday, Colorado law states that “campaign workers are allowed outside of polling places to offer water, snacks, and other items to voters who are waiting to vote,” but are not allowed to do so if they wear political branding.
Colorado also requires voter ID for in-person and absentee voting.
“All voters who vote at the polls must provide identification,” Colorado’s law states. “If you are voting by mail for the first time, you may also need to provide a photocopy of your identification when you return your mail ballot.”
