According to the NAACP, voter ID laws that require photo identification in order to vote is a violation of human rights. And they are going to the UN Human Rights Council.
The UN has no moral authority to preside over the United States. They contain countries such as Saudi Arabia and China that are worse with respect to human rights.
Saudi Arabia doesn’t even allow women the right to vote — and will not until 2015.
They also have no legal authority over the United States. But as reported on The Guardian, NAACP president Benjamin Jealous says they want to shame the US.
Shame alone is effective. The US, and individual states within the US that have introduced these laws, have a vested interest in maintaining the opinion that we are the world’s leading democracy. That means something. – Benjamin Jealous.
