I've read through most of the comments and see the give it up, he released what you people wanted and that's not good enough. (and) The it's a fake
still not proof posts. This birther crap has gotten so out of control. Does it really matter if he was born in Hawaii or Kenya? Last I checked,
his mother was an American citizen.
For the people who say that the Obama defenders always cry racism. Well, I like to think that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck....it's
probably a duck. Racism is alive and well in America today. People who say it isn't are delusional. Just ask a minority like uh.....ME. I live in
a town that has unspoken rules about where you can go. Not that minorities CAN'T go we just know that if we go to one restaurant we will get
deplorable service. But get take out and it's never a problem. Another restaurant, just forget about it all together. You won't even get a table.
There is another business that minorities don't use because the owner makes no qualms about how he feels. He told a friend of mine (white guy) that
worked for him that he doesn't need or want any money from the n!@@*%$ around here. We didn't need to hear this. The vanity plate on his Mercedes
that is issued by the state of North Carolina reads "ARYAN". Racism is everywhere. Yes, it may be more visible in the South, but make no mistake,
it is everywhere in all walks of life.
Yes, the President's mother was white, but we all know that it doesn't count. He looks like a black man. He is married to a black woman and he has
two black children and his name is not John Smith. The right wing media loves to say his entire name. Love it. He unlike all of the Devantres,
Jamirquezs, Alyzes and countless other crazy named children, was named after his father. There are people that want to think that they are
enlightened and beyond seeing race. I call B.S. on that every single time. That is the very first thing you see. That is like someone saying that
they don't see gender or not seeing the difference between a 7 year old and a 75 year old. We are less that 50 years removed from a time when black
people marched in the streets for civil rights. A shameful time in American history when laws, let me repeat LAWS were still on the books preventing
black people from enjoying the rights that white people took for granted. Unless you yourself are a minority how can you say that racism doesn't
exist? Just ask a Muslim who is busting their hump working. Taking care of their family and trying to carve out their little piece of the American
Dream. A lot of Americans only see a terrorist.
The fact is, Barrack Obama was elected President. It is now in the history books. Nothing can change that. People please let it go. Just let it
go. The only thing that the birther issue has done is polarize this country more that it already was. This is a time when we should all be working
together to make The United States just that. UNITED. A country that should be an example of peace, prosperity and brotherhood is seen as the very
opposite by many others around the world including a lot of its own citizens. Don't be mistaken. I love my country and I thank God that I was born
in the U.S.A. this pride and love of country has always been instilled in my sons. Just 13 days ago, we sent a child off to the Military. Why did
this 21 year old black man enlist? Because of his pride and sense of duty to a country that has not always had a mutual feeling for him and others
that look like him.
So let's just get over it. Please. There are always plenty of legitimate issues to argue over when it comes to the President.
Besides, weren't the Tea Party people the ones that started this whole birther issue? If they were, can ya' really trust the judgement of people
that initially called themselves tea baggers?
