Here is a very good Internet Article by Prof. William Jacobson, NOT a Birther, of Cornell Law School. Just excerpts are shown here, and the full Internet Article is at the link. Enjoy:
The accusations of racism left no possibility that people who doubted Obama’s birthplace or citizenship were motivated by an honest desire to see the best evidence, and an honest bewilderment as to why a presidential candidate or president would not release a document which we all have had to release at one time or another in our lives.
After all, if racism were the motivation and Obama were being singled out because of his skin color, then the evidence would not matter.
And Daniel Foster at NRO:
I can’t tell you how often I heard the argument from liberal colleagues that the relatively high number of self-identified conservative Birthers found in some polls implicated the entire conservative coalition as hopelessly racist, and that since Birtherism is rooted in President Obama’s perceived “otherness,” no amount of evidence could ever change our Bible-thumping backward redneck minds.
Boy oh boy, if that’s true, then Obama’s decision to release his long-form birth certificate accomplished a feat on par with — nay, greater than — killing Osama bin Laden: it made America dramatically less racist overnight!
