This week after the crescendo of ‘is he or is he not’ grew loud enough, President Obama showed us the money, this time if the form of his birth certificate. When Obama released his birth certificate on Wednesday a part of me felt so sad. You see, I don’t think that the birthers and in particular Donald Trump should have been shown anything because I think the birthers and Donald Trump fall into the bully category.
Bullies suck. Give them and inch and they will take a mile and I waited for the other shoe to drop.
From all accounts Obama got Trump back at the White House Press Dinner but will that stop the whispers and innuendos? Will our President be able to get back to the task at hand, this task not being to prove that he is an American but that the people who elected him are not fools.
It’s a shame that our country is so hate filled and fearful that in order to accept a Black man as their leader that he must be dehumanized, alienated or both. Tear him down seems to be the mantra, the thing that makes it fathomable to relate to this man. Yes, a Black man is in charge. No joke, he is here and we must support him until he leaves, is voted out.
