This morning on THE VIEW, Whoopi Goldberg came close to calling birthers and Donald Trump in particular racist. In a discussion with Trump about President Obama's birth certificate she finally asked him was it about race?

Goldberg: Donald, I think thats the biggest pile of dog mess Ive heard in ages! Its not because hes black, is it?

Trump: It has nothing to do with him being black.

Goldberg: Because Ive never heard a white president being asked to show his birth certificate. Thats B.S.

It is long past time for folks to start calling birtherism what it is, racism, and birthers, including Trump, what they are, racist.

I know that is harsh, but the attempt to "other" President Obama by alleging he wasn't born here is nothing but dog whistle racism intended to imply that he is different and "not one of us."

Instead of the burden of proof being Obama to present a birth certificate, WHICH HE HAS DONE, the burden of proof should be on birthers to prove they are not racist.
