Today, I read an article on Slate about new voting laws that may block African Americans from voting. The article stated that up to 25% of African American voters may not have a state issued photo ID.
I’ve worked in call centers and warehouses. Through that experience, I have met people with no driver’s licenses. Generally, they live in the city and use public transportation to get around.
Is a driver’s license a class symbol? Does it represent the difference between someone with the money to buy, insure, and run a car and someone without money?
