If Obama was white, would people be questioning where he was born?
i honestly believe that the question of where he was born is racialy motivated. try going through a secret service security check and see how well you fair.
It wouldn't matter if Obama was purple people would still find something wrong.
If his name was still Barak Obama, sure they would. I think the people who are questioning are more concerned with his nationality than his race.
The birther issue is most certainly racially motivated. Obama has been living with racism all of his life. He gets it. I believe he will rise above the racism issue, and as a nation, we will learn.
President Chester Arthur was born in Canada and no one said anything about that. Oh, and John McCain was born in Panama.
I am no fan of Obama but, in my opinion, if he were white, the "where-was-he-actually-born-controversy" would not be happening.
If,Obama was born in any state but Hawaii and had no connections to any other country I would agree with you.But,it has been pointed out by officials in Kenya he has ties to Kenya that claim that he was born there,rather than in Hawaii.
Look as Arnold Swartzeneger he obviously cannot run for president but in one of his speeches he certainly would like to be able to and if Obama sets a president (pun intended) Arnold may just get his wish.
Some people don't care where where you were born if,no one questions it and some do.I take it you fall into the group that doesn't.
I voted for him for no other reason than the other choices were worse.
Now .I regret my decision and after all the contraversy I think Obama was placed in the position by Soros and other foriegn interests.At,least that's where he got hugh sums of money Even Obama himself mispoke in the news several times refering to "his muslim faith" and being corrected by the interviewer George Stephenopolous in one newscast by correcting him by saying " you mean your christian faith."
The people who are questioning Obama's birth certificate don't know that Hawaii is actually one of the 50 states.
There's your problem.
If it wasn't his birth place issue they would find something else. I personally don't care for the guy but they need to find something a little more important then his birth place to jab at him about
Um. . . . .get over it! Nobody much cares anymore. When people say that "we don't believe Obama is a US citizen" they certainly do mean, "we don't like him."
Guess what? It's perfectly legal to dislike whoever you with to not like! I can not like you, you can not like me - there's nothing that anyone can say or do about it.
I sort of like Obama, but I don't like him, truly - for the simple fact that he put Ben Bernake in charge of the Federal Reserve.
Have you ever heard of the Protocols of The Learned Elders of Zion????? It's a very racist text, but it's got some very interesting information in it, and part of it states that the Zionist, with all of their money, always install questionable leaders over every major country. Pretty interesting, no?
When asked before the Senate which banks got the bailout money, Ben Bernake just said "no." He wouldn't give Senators the information about where all of our money went.
Do you know why? It's because Ben Bernake doesn't give a damn about America, Americans, or our money - except that it make it's way to places where Internationalist can do what they will with it. Internationalist want a one world government, not a United States of America.
Zionism - the belief that a United World will be lead from Israel, it's in the Torah, you dig?
Given the same set of conditions with regard to other matters, I certainly would hope so. We have requirements which must be met by all candidates for a given office. If those requirements are being ignored or not checked, then someone is dropping the ball. I do not see the situation as it relates to Obama to have any merit as a "race" issue...the questions involved are not race related other than pointing out the birthplace and citizenship of his parents. We cannot have a society which lives by the Rule of Law if we find out that some in our society want to circumvent those rules or that others do not choose to enforce them. As far as I am concerned that applies to Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Hilary Clinton, or anyone else who elects to run for the office. WB
I doubt it. In fact, I made this basic point in a hub a while back:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Obama-Mid-Term- … s-and-Race
I personally think that the reason that everyone is so concerned about the birth certificate is because he refuses to show his birth certificate making Americans wondering why he is hiding it. Seriously, how hard is to to show your birth certificate? Just Saying
Please share the evidence that brought you to that conclusion, thank you in advance.
They asked for John McCain's birth certificate - he was born in Panama. He, last time I checked, is/was/will be white. It is a requirement of the office to be born as a natural born citizen of the United States - there is nothing in it racist. Remember, he's half white anyway so how in the world is it racist?
I would suggest that any "If Obama were white..." question interjects the race card which lost it's credibility the day President Obama was sworn into office in 2008.
I agree with northeast Timber he is just as much white as he is black. with the history blacks go back a long time and obama has to deal racism everyday and i believe one day he will put a stop to it and if he dosent then i will because blacks and whites should be treated equally it dosent matter what you look like or who u r and i think sometimes people forget that
Yes. Unfortunately, they would find some other nonsensical reason to criticize him. Some people have nothing better to do with themselves than cause turmoil.
I actually have a hub that addresses it if you want to. I believe that people wouldn't be doing this.
i think, after writing back and forth to many people, that anyone denying racial motivation in this case is kidding themselves or knows that they feel differently, but don't care to admit it. really, how silly do you sound denying racial motivation here?
I don't see what color has to do with it. Trump was the one in the news the most talking about it. Every President has had someone bad mouthing them.
I think America tries to make sure that everything is just.... America isn't racist, some people are in USA, but for the most part.... NO, poeple aren't racist, so ............ YES

What if, as Donald Trump alluded to on the Today Show recently, President Obama has pulled off the biggest scam in America's history by being elected President of the United States without being a United States citizen?
