LOS ANGELES — At the 102nd annual NAACP convention, NAACP President, Ben Jealous, compared new voter ID laws to “Jim Crow.” He also blamed them on the “most racist and conservative elements in the Tea Party.”

Reuters reports:

NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said a wave of newly enacted photo-ID requirements stemmed from what he saw as “the worst and most racist elements” in conservative Tea Party groups that have immersed themselves in state politics since the 2010 elections.

He compared photo ID laws to poll taxes and other past restrictions — since struck down by the courts — designed to keep blacks from voting in the segregated Deep South. And he said the latest measures were part of a racial backlash against the 2008 election of President Barack Obama.
