CBS’s Bob Schieffer “Ugly Strain Of Racism” With Birthers

April 28, 2011

Yesterday morning I called the ‘birthers’ racist.  There is no doubt that Donald Trump is using racism to play to the teabagger movement which is steeped in  blatant racism.  Hours after my post was up another voice was added to the choir.

On the CBS Evening News Bob Schieffer weighed in and offered the same conclusion regarding this matter, and how the grades that Obama had which allowed him to get into Harvard are now being called into question.

Bob Schieffer appeared Wednesday night on “The CBS Evening News and reacted to Trump’s latest salvo against President Barack Obama, in which Trump suggested the Prez might not have had the grades to get into Harvard Law School.

Schieffer said, “That’s just code for saying he got into law school because he’s black.  This is an ugly strain of racism that’s running through this whole thing.”

    This country will be closer to its full potential when people are honest and judged on their character, not their religion or race.
