Alabama Closes 31 DMVs in State Despite Voter ID Law

Discriminatory laws against marginalized communities are nothing new in America. It doesn't matter if such laws mean to put people who are already at a societal disadvantage at well, an even more pressing position of disadvantage, the result is still the same.

This week's example of lawmakers making decisions that severely impact people of color hails from Alabama. Lawmakers recently arrived at the conclusion that closing 31 of the state's driver's license offices was the best way to save money.

A lot of the districts affected have a significant Black population–many of which are already suffering from the state's tough voter ID requirement.
