The same Obama who claims that asking for ID is discriminatory because blacks don’t have ID (Which is ridiculous) had no problem when Hawaii and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands passed laws that prohibited people from voting solely because they are white. It didn’t matter how many generations your family lived in either place, if you didn’t have 1/4 native blood in you, you could not vote. Obama refused to fight for the right of whites to vote.
But here’s the sickening part of the matter — Davis was forced to hire an attorney because the Department of Justice refused to get involved in the matter. It’s the DOJ’s job to enforce voter rights, but apparently President Barack Obama’s DOJ doesn’t feel compelled to do so.
In 2014, a federal district judge struck down the CNMI law, and even the liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed that decision last Tuesday in a unanimous three-judge ruling, the Washington Examiner reported.
The ruling declared the laws unconstitutional based on the fact that they violate the 15th Amendment’s prohibition against racial discrimination in voting and the 14th Amendment’s requirement of equal protection, stating that “full-blooded” and other definitions showed the true purpose of the restriction, according to the Hawaii Free Press.
The Examiner also reported that the state of Hawaii has defended race-based state laws for almost 20 years. In fact, the Hawaii legislature passed a law that created a Native Hawaiian Roll Commission that could submit amendments to the state constitution and allow a vote on the sovereignty of the native Hawaiian people. In 2012, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs began a campaign to create a race-based sovereign government.
