No. They're just gullible people who listen to too many talking heads.

Possibly in the case of Obama. But I think they're just more stubborn than anything.

Only white people can be racist.

So, the two American Indians who called me (white male) "Whitey" and "Cowboy" weren't being racist...? Hmm...

I think they just want an excuse to get him impeached. I think it has more to do with his political party than race, regardless it's nonsense!

Ok i hate having obama as the president but the last thing i want to happen is him getting impeached because his vp would be way worse than obama is

Solely that they think BO wasnt born in USA isnt enough to prove racism. Im sure some of them are probably racists, but that isnt the question.

Racism: the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. People use this word WAY too much.

I am glad somebody besides me thinks this. 95% of the time it's bigotry not racism.

If we're going to limit the definition of racism to only one meaning then we need a serious reality check.

I don't think that one automatically means the other, but there is far more overlapping than not in that Venn diagram

Name the clown which made this claim. It isn't sufficient to mock silly claims, we must also mock the silly claimant.

No, that's what got us into this in the first place. Ideas should be debated rather than a persons character.

Yes, ideas should be discussed. Slavishly calling those who criticizes 0bama isn't an idea, it's a disorder.

Absolutely, as are people who call Obama a Muslim (replacement for nigger) or say any version of 'he doesn't understand what it means to be a REAL American.'

I can not like a black person for tons of other reasons besides race especially in obamas case

No, just incredibly naieve and would rather believe what they want than face the facts.

I say yes until the same people disprove it by attacking Ted Cruz who does not hide his Canadian birth.

The birth certificate released by Barry is a clear forgery.

I think there was a "of course he's Kenyan he looks like one" aspect to it but most of the effort was just a desperate move to discredit a political candidate.

Some might be but again, I believe birthers are people who strongly dislike Obama's politics.

While I don't think most are racist or xenophobic, I don't see most of them having a legitimate reason to hold this belief.

EB, what took so long for his birth certificate to be made public?

Why would he appease the very small percentage of citizens who believed it? That's not something that's expected of the president.

Well, Obummer did eventually come up with one, just wondering what took so long to produce it. I could have created one in about an hour. . .

exh, I don't know if we'll ever know the answer to that. I'd rather put the energy into getting the Republican Party back on track.

"Why would he appease them" i dont know but it seems like a really easy way to shut someone up
