1.  And were all the blocked forms of ID not "usual"?  Unless this is the case I'm not seeing any reason to think it was coincidence.  

They were certainly rarer forms of ID and not uniform government issue.

I'm having a lot of trouble finding what forms of ID the law blocked; could you point me to your source or identify what those forms of ID were?  Even one or two examples will help if you don't remember everything. 

What I have found so far is that they: 
—eliminated same-day registration after determining African Americans benefited disproportionately from that service;
—eliminated high school pre-registration and pre-registration while obtaining a driver's license after determining African Americans benefited disproportionately from those services;
—shortened the early voting period from 17 days to 10 days after determining African Americans voted disproportionately during that period of time; and
—eliminated out-of-precinct provisional ballots after determining African Americans benefited disproportionately from that service. 

Now, it is not entirely inconceivable that African Americans in North Carolina benefit disproportionately from every service that makes it easier to vote; and that a voting law that curtailed registration and tightened voting-day requirements would therefore necessarily disproportionately affect them; however, the answer to that suggestion depends on facts that I have not been able to obtain.

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.
