The Racist Roots of the Birther cause - why a Black President gets under so many people's skin
Over at Submitted to a Candid World, one of my favorite bloggers is taking on the racist roots of the "Legal Birther movement." The expose is well written, and I commend it to you. Like it or not, and many liberals do not, we are NOT in apost-racial era in American history or politics. Many in this country are discriminated against daily, be it on the basis of race, economic status, or religion (including atheists). We have, I htink, burried our collective heads in the sand on the issue of discrimination, and we need to unbury them in a hurry.
