It's Racism

In case anyone doubts that "birtherism" is anything but a form of racism, used by white people who want to deny that a black man is their President, consider the latest garbage from new king of the birthers (sorry, Orly, you're fired,) Donald Trump:

"Donald Trump is upping the ante against President Barack Obama's legitimacy, raising questions on Monday night about how the president was admitted to two Ivy League schools.

Trump openly questioned how Obama, who he said had been a "terrible student," got accepted into Columbia University for undergraduate studies and then Harvard Law School.

"I heard he was a terrible student, terrible," Trump told the Associated Press in an interview, a claim he's made in the past but one he doubled down on by suggesting he's probing that area of the president's life.

"How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard? I'm thinking about it, I'm certainly looking into it. Let him show his records," he said, without providing backup for his claim.

"We don't know a thing about this guy," Trump said."

We don't know a thing about Obama, yet somehow we know that he was a terrible student, based on an unidentified source.  By the way, this terrible student graduated Magna Cum Laude from the world's foremost law school, where he had no business being admitted in the first place.  And why didn't he belong there?  It is because he is black- the one thing Donald Trump does know about Obama, and in the mind of Donald Trump the one thing that proves beyond a doubt that, even though  "We don't know a thing about this guy," he cannot possibly be deserving of a good education.

These people are scum.

Yes, of course it's racism, but when you accuse these bottom feeders they become insensed and deny that race has anything to do with it.

I just wonder why the person who heard this latest piece of racist shyte from the asshole Trump didn't ask him if perhaps Clarence Thomas was also a bad student who got preferential treatment in college...Condolezza Rice? Colin Powell? Is it just selective racism?

One wonders.

Trump will NEVER be president. NEVER.

Will the release of his birth certificate, now online at the White House web site, end this racist nonsense? I suspect it will only fan the flames.

Trump's got some real winners following his facebook page.
