a. She's ignorant as to how black people have been stereotyped and mocked throughout American History.
b. She thinks we are all stupid.
I like this particular article because it bring up a point that I haven't been thinking a lot about. I thought that this "birther" thing would have been squashed by now, but as the blogger points out that Arizona has taken this a whole step farther.
It's bad enough that Arizona passed a "Birther" law which requires anyone (who they think is Kenyan) to submit a birth certificate, or show that you're circumcised (if you have a penis) to be on the ballot. This has never been done before in history (yeah white folks, see how they change rules once Black people get in the game?). Now you have this so-called non-racist because she has Black friends, continuing in racist tradition. Oh yeah, watch the following video and listen to them detail her racist and racism-defending antics as well as those of others. Hopefully Republican officials get her out of there; she gotta go. Everybody knows her, "I have Black friends," response is quite typical.It's a scary world.
