Be fair, Vast--you can question where someone was born without it being racist. In [Native American] tribal politics, it's a regular tactic to question whether one's opponent was born within tribal lands, or born outside, and then later moved into the tribe and became active in politics just because it was a good job opportunity. That isn't a "racist" claim; it's an "opportunist" one. You can bet that Mitt would do the same for someone who might've been born in Canada, or England. The "automatic racism" bandwagon is so typically Obama policy that it's rather stunning to see you using it.
"...You can bet that Mitt would do the same for someone who might've been born in Canada, or England..."I wouldn't bet on that at all. And I doubt that all this "birther" bullshit would have had the same traction if Obama had been a White dude named Mark Jones, or whatever.Besides, there are people living in both Canada and England who aren't White.Also, what in Obama's policy has anything to do with fighting racism on a national scale? If anything, he seems obsessed with riding the "post-racial" bandwagon and la-la-ing away any lingering race issues in the U.S. It's been a hallmark of his campaigns and his entire term.
