Who will vote against hate?

Those of you who think that the President will quell these conspiracy theories by releasing his birth certificate are wrong. This is racism, pure and simple and it is not about to go away. The very fact that the President of the United States had to prove to 35% of the country that he was born here is just a symptom. Now the real fun begins and this will be the ugliest race for the presidency in American history if we, the people, do not stop it now.

Let’s just look at the new conspiracies already cropping up and let’s take the ugliest one first. This one should anger every black man in America who has worked hard to get an education, even Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Donald Trump is now saying that Obama was too stupid to go to Occidental College and therefore he must have gotten into the Ivy League schools in some other way—Columbia and Harvard. In other words, he got where he is through Affirmative Action. Is there one educated black man of the President’s generation who has not heard that claim? Donald Trump is putting this one forth and he still has those investigators out looking up information on the President, the same ones who said his birth certificate was missing.

Oh there are others: Texas State Representative Leo Berman puts it, “Why did it take the president so long, amid a conservative firestorm, to release it? Why does it look "brand new," he said, when it's supposed to be five decades old? Why doesn't the hospital listed on the birth certificate have a "plaque on the door" commemorating Obama's birth there? And has anyone checked with the delivery room doctor listed on the birth certificate (whose name Berman says is curiously difficult to make out)?” "I'm hopeful that it's a good birth certificate," Berman said, "and that's all I can say."

Or how about what Orly Taitz had to say when she was asked about the release of the birth certificate: “Based on that initial glance she said she has some questions as to its veracity. For instance, she wondered why Obama’s father's race was listed as "African," when she says the contemporary term used would have been "Negro." It could not have been because Mr. Obama’s father was a student from the country of Kenya, which happens to be in Africa.

Her new angle: “Taitz said his Hawaiian birth was only one of a several questions she has, also alleging she has proof that he committed Social Security fraud and lied about his studies at Columbia University.” Taitz is the woman that has had several lawsuits dismissed about this birther issue. She has many more.

Or, how about Jerome Corsi, who wrote a book about this ridiculous issue. Listen to what his publisher says: “Farah is not giving up that easily. He said that producing the birth certificate won’t end the debate… Now we can have an intelligent discussion about what it means to be a natural born citizen,” Farah said, suggesting in what direction conservatives will now push the issue. “If your father is Kenyan, how are you an American citizen? If your adopted step-father was Indonesian, how are you an American citizen? At best you are a dual-citizen.” Is that as confusing to you as it is to me?

Not to mention the recent diatribes on Fox News because the President chose to go to a Black Church on Easter Sunday. They are now calling him a Black-nationalist who cares more about black issues than he does America. Get the hint. Other black leaders were called black-nationalist: Martin Luther King, Malcolm X (he was) and so many others. They can now tie black nationalism to the New Black Panther Party. It can also be tied to the first black president in US history.

This is not even veiled racism and my hope is that reasonable Americans will see it. The only reason for any of this is because Barack Hussein Obama is black. It is racism at its worst and I just want to see how those other 55% of the GOP who weren’t sure where the President was born will handle this issue and I still just want one Republican to say, “We don’t want him because he’s black.” Come on and show your true colors.

      First of all Joe, you assume you live in the mind of Colin Powell. You claim you know why he does what he does and what he was thinking. Basically, you are spouting bullsh, being that you aren't that guy, so you haven't a damned clue what he thinks and why he does things. In fact, the notion you are really proposing is that no black man deserves to be President on his own merits, and Colin Powell would only vote for him based upon a loyalty to color and nothing more. Whether you know it or not, you just admitted that you are a racist. Period. Therefore, you aren't worth it. I dabbled for the sake of boredom, but no sir...racists are crap human beings. Period.

      Sir, you are correct that there is racism in America. I am not sure if the birther issue is about his race. You need to realize that the whole birther movement was started by supporters of Hillary Clinton. The way the media and Obama's campaign tried to paint the Clintons as racist was purely a political ploy to get more black voters.

      You want the people against him to say it is because he is black. First of all, he is half-black. Colin Powell supported him because he was black. He denied it, but I will never believe him. I heard a black conservative on C-Span who did not agree with Obama on one issue say he voted for him ... not because he was black ... but he did not want to tell him grandchildren that he did not vote for the first black president.

      Herman Cain, a black businessman, is considering running for president as a republican. He hopes America will not hold against him for being black ... same as Obama. I heard comments from the head of the black chamber of commerce today ... he admitted he voted for Obama because he was black ... but not regrets it.

      Finally, how come all blacks are mostly democrats. You look at a black person and you have a 90-95% chance of knowing how he votes. I think that is not good for the black community to put all your chips with one party. Have they helped your cause? Is the black community better off today than 20 years ago. Maybe it is time to give the republicans a chance or at least make the parties compete for your vote. One more thing ... if 90-95 percent of white voters went for the republican candidates ... the media would call all white people racist ... and that is not true!

      I am not American, but I think that a lot of scandals are created around American presidents when certain groups or individuals are trying to get political power. Check this article published in October 2010. The aim is not racism it is political power.

      Harder posted a link to a planned parenthood site where they talk about Margaret Sanger, the founder being racist. Most whites were in her time.

      The founder of Planned Parenthood died years ago and most whites were racist during her time.

      Texasbeta: On the contrary, when McCain entered the presidential race, congressional hearings were held on McCain's eligibility because he was born on a US military base in Panama.

      Good grief, it is not a race thing. I have supported black candidates many times in the past. Why did it take him so long to release it? Why not release his college records? It can't hurt him, unless he has something to hide.

      Speaking of racism, don't you consider it strange that Obama would support an organization whose founder is out to exterminate the black race? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9KttTuJ4ds

      Again, WHY IS HE SUPPORTING THE EXTERMINATION OF HIS OWN RACE?

      If Obama was white, and people were demanding to see his birth certificate, then what you blame the birthers for? Hmm?

      Walks, Harder - Not in the entire span of our country's history have we asked a President to show the country his birth certificate. It was legally certified by the appropriate parties when he became President. There were birth announcements in 3 newspapers within 3 days of his birth. He has show the short and long form. What was the response when he showed the long form today? "It was fake.' Now we want the college records", etc.

      It is ONLY about his race, his name, the image these people see in their minds when they think of him. It has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not he is an actual citizen. They want his Presidency to be illegitimate; they want him to be illegitimate. They are at their very core...bad people. Yes, racists, people who are chained to the idea that the sake of our country means less to them than their personal bigotry...are bad humans. These people bring shame to not only my country, but my species.

      How many Presidents do you remember ever being asked about their birth certificates? None.

      Just to let you know, the whole birth certificate argument is not about race.

      Our country has failed to realize our constitutional rights has not been up held by the government. The requirements to become a united states president is to naturally be born in the united states.

      So how is that opening up a racism war/issue
