Birthers seem to have double standard
President Obama has the wrath of the birthers; they contend he was born in Kenya.
I tend to believe that there is resentment that his mother was a native of Kansas and Caucasian. How dare an African get a white woman pregnant. It was OK in this country for the master and his friends to partake of black female slaves in the dark and not acknowledge them in the light. The white woman, President Obama's mother, added injury to the insult when she named her son after his father, Barack Hussein Obama.
Ted Cruz's mother married a Cuban, and her son was born in Canada. He doesn't have the wrath of the birthers; it is presumed that he is pure Caucasian, but many natives of Cuba have a dab of African blood. Thus in this country, if you have one drop of black blood, you are colored. I wonder if the Right Reverend racist Rafael Cruz Sr., doesn't realize this.
He knows his son was born outside the United States, and Ted's mother is white. President Obama was in fact born in the United States, also of a white mother.
I tend to believe that Cruz Senior is trying to deflect the fact that another black man (himself) is married to a white American woman.
