Picture of the Day: When it comes to the issue of voter IDs, the NAACP’s slip is showing

The following is reprinted as a courtesy to the NAACP, which notes at its website:

In collaboration with Brave New Foundation, the NAACP has put together a new video about the impact of the voting right attacks on communities of color. Please take a moment to watch and spread the message to everyone you know…

Done. Here’s the video:

And here’s the spiel that follows:

Our new video, We Will Stand, shows exactly how difficult obtaining ID can be for many people. In the rural South, many people of a certain age have no birth certificate because they were born to a midwife. For them, the barriers to getting a state issued ID without a birth certificate are tremendous. Others are dependent on the rides to the polls provided by church-organized Sunday voting drives, which have been shut down in some states. [Emphasis added]

Got that? Obtaining an ID is difficult for people, especially in the South.

So can someone, anyone, at the NAACP please explain the highlighted portion of the marching orders below? The document is published by the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP. (h/t Strategic Red Group.)
