It should it not be of any surprise that our racist elected officials in this state would be doing anything differently in raising the “birther issue” once again. We must all remember that Arizona was the last state in the union to approve MLK Day as a legal holiday.

Then came SB 1070. A racist bill that discriminates against Hispanics. These same GOP ultra-right wing elected officials such as Sheriff Joe, Gov. Brewer, Secretary of State Ken Bennett and recalled State Sen. Russell Pearce with backing by of the tea party are having a hard time realizing that a part African American may get another four years in the White House. It does not matter to these the racist minded people of this state that it has already been proven President Obama was born in the Untied States. It is very unfortunate racism has again shown up in Arizona.

The time is now for the strong majority in this state to recognize the racist elected officials have to be voted out. Democrats, Republicans and independents must realize these racist people are not serving the will of the people but only their own racist agendas.
