John Legend Blasts N.C. Voter ID Law as Return of 'Jim Crow'

To singer John Legend, having to present a photo ID at the voting booth is akin to some of the most racist policies in American history.

Legend, an unabashed supporter of President Barack Obama, reacted angrily to a new North Carolina law which demands voters simply show the same sort of identification they use to enter a movie theater, buy alcohol or fly on an airplane.

Fuck this North Carolina voting law. Fuck the new Jim Crow.

“Jim Crow,” according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, refers to “any of the laws that enforced racial segregation in the South between the end of the formal Reconstruction period in 1877 and the beginning of a strong civil rights movement in the 1950s.
