How to Win the 'Urban Vote'

By Ta-Nehisi Coates

One sure way is to suggest that their preferred candidate, presumably with their aid, effectively stole an election. For good measure, try asserting that governmental checks and balances should apply to everyone but you:

A state senator who served as co-chair of Mitt Romney's Wisconsin campaign suggested this week that the Republican presidential nominee would have carried the state if a voter ID law had been in place... 

 "We're looking at all sorts of different precincts and all sorts of same-day registrations," Darling said. "I know people will go, 'We don't have fraud and abuse in our elections.' But why, why can't we have voter ID when the majority of our people in Wisconsin wanted it, we passed it, the governor signed it? Why should one judge in Dane County be able to hold it up?"
Barack Obama won the state by 200,000 votes. Either I win, or you cheated.
