A viral video from the @politicsjames TikTok account shows a montage of young, white, apparent liberals explaining their opposition to voter ID laws like the one just passed in Georgia.

A number of the white responders agree that expecting voters to show ID is a way to "perpetuate racism." A white man who appears to be a college student suggests that black people are "less likely to have state IDs," while another says "these type of people don't live in areas with easy access to DMVs."

When the interviewer asks one young white woman if she thought black people were not able to go online to get an ID she responds by saying, "Well I feel that they don't have the knowledge of, like, how it works."

The video ends with a second montage of black citizens stating exactly where the local DMV is located and affirming that they do, in fact, have a state issued ID.
