Let’s take a moment and think about the following scenario:
A young, white American woman and a young, white South African man conceive a child.
The woman gives birth to a healthy, white child in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.
Forty-seven years later, that child wins the election to become President of the United States.
Can anyone out there argue that anyone would be questioning the legitimacy of that man’s birth certificate or his eligibility to become President?
Let’s be clear about all of this “birther” nonsense. It’s racism plain and simple.
