We would be doing a great disservice to our readers if we didn’t revisit the birther issue from a teaching perspective. It’s time we got down to the nitty gritty of the issue. Aside from the President of the United States having to prove his citizenship, where does the audacity to call him to task on this issue come from? The “tea party” and “birthers” were never heard of before this country got its first African American President. These groups are a direct response to him accepting the appointment.
Goldie Taylor, a contributing editor to the Grio, has broken down the racist element of these groups that we’ve always believed was present in their crusade. The crusade they have led against our President was eloquently translated by Taylor on the night of the President’s submission of his long form birth certificate. Taylor is not only eloquent in her delivery, but her historical perspective is captivating.
Please do yourself a favor and listen attentively–she’s going to go fast.
