voter id requirements in Mexico ?

So Rob, let me get this straight. Are you're saying that requiring an I.D. to vote would disenfranchise mostly poor minority voters, but the following which all require a photo I.D. don't?

Purchasing alcohol, purchase cold medicine, purchasing cigarettes, opening a bank account, apply for a credit card, applying for food stamps, applying for welfare, applying for Medicaid, applying for social security, applying for a job, applying for unemployment, renting a house, buying a house applying for a mortgage, drive a car, rent a car, buy a car, get on an airplane, get married, purchase a gun, adopt a pet, rent a hotel room, apply for a hunting license, apply for a fishing license, buy a cell phone, apply for a utility account

You start with a false premise, so your argument is nonsense from the git go. A NEW ID is not required for all those things. The IDs required are already easily available and already possessed. Not an additional expense or bureaucratic encounter. But yours is a great example of the dumbed down white privileged point of view.

Don't read this because it contains FACTS and DETAILS which will only cause pain in your already stressed head.
