Allegations Of Racism By Photo Voter ID Opponents

Take Action Minnesota’s Dan McGrath called upon Minnesota Majority to take down what he called“racist” images on their website promoting voter photo ID. The website shows an black man in prison stripes standing in line to vote. McGrath also said Minnesota Majority should stop pushing for the amendment and apologize for using the images.
Minnesota Majority’s President Jeff Davis issued a statement that did not apologize, or comment on the use of images.
“Race has never been a factor in the Voter ID debate. Only Take Action Minnesota wants to raise that specter. The amendment is about equal treatment under the law and fairness,” said Davis.
Rep. Keith Ellison (MN-05) released the following statement in response to photo ID proponents’ recent attempt to whip up fear and divide Minnesotans along racial lines:

Who had the right to vote first black men or white women?

The 15th amendment in 1870 gave black men the right to vote first. Women got the right to vote in 1919, a half century later. 
Even though former female, white abolitionists had organized and fought diligently alongside black male and black female abolitionists, several famous black male abolitionists abandoned the suffragettes in order to achieve their vote first. This caused a falling out between the two groups. Ultimately, black women, white women, and all women including those who had fought for abolition all had to wait a half century before getting the right to vote. Many black and white female abolitionists died before any woman was given the right to vote which was a disappointment to them for the rest of their lives. 
Similarly, black men held office for the first time right after the Civil War while women of all ethnicities’ political opportunities, right to have property, and rights to divorce took decades longer to achieve than that of black men. The 14th and 15th amendments deliberately included language that would keep women of any ethnicity from enhanced rights.
