The Birther movement started between two and three years ago borne out of what I perceive as a racist element of the Tea Party’s imagination. It resonated with the residual racism inbred into many white Americans who find it hard to swallow that a black man who went to school in America could achieve what Obama has. He has to be from somewhere else. They labeled an American Christian; a Muslim African Socialist, and racist whites across America latched onto this like ravenous pit bulls on a T-bone steak. I am not prepared to call everyone that subscribed to this ideology a racist, however, I have to question if there is just a tinge of racism residing in their psyche.
