GOP Rep. Burgess Owens: "Projection" By Democrats About Voter ID Is "Self-Bigotry Of Low Expectations"

|

Rep. Burgess Ownes testified at a Senate hearing on whether voter ID laws represent a "New Jim Crow," particularly mentioning that he is insulted when Democrats characterize black voters as "not smart enough" to get identification.

"The true racism is this: the projection of the Democratic party on my proud race. It's called the self bigotry of low expectation," Rep. Owens said Tuesday. "President Biden said of the Georgia law 'This is Jim Crow on steroids.' With all due respect, Mr. President, you know better."


"What I find extremely offensive from the left is the narrative that black people are not smart enough, not educated enough...to do what every other culture does in this country —get an ID," he said.
