Maria, I love reading your posts!I believe many (not "all") of the people who are so against our president just can't stand the idea that a black man is running our country. And I agree this birther controversy is more about hating the "black man" and a means of discrediting him than it is about truly believing he wasn't born in this country. It is ALL about making it look like he "isn't one of us", including the continued accusations of him being a muslim. It is blind racism and hatred, pure and simple.I think race relations have gotten better, but they still have a long way to go, in some places more than others. I have worked very hard to teach my children to respect ALL people. They are very kind and compassionate young men. I am so blessed.I do hope that one day people won't even see skin color, or any other means of grouping people. Let's all just help each other, be kind to each other! - Nancy
Here's hoping it's sooner than you can imagine. Did you see that the "birth certificate" that Trump held up was a certificate of live birth -- just like the one the birthers have been beating up the president about. Made me laugh.
