Arizona Sen. Russell Pearce Embraces Role As Outspoken Bigot IMAGINE 2050

Pearce also wants to pass a “birther” bill in Arizona. Pearce has all but admitted he is one of those individuals, called Birthers, who claim that they don’t believe or won’t admit that President Obama is a citizen. In actuality, “Birthers” are a thinly veiled political formation with the goal of convincing others that Obama is not white and therefore not American. This proposed legislation in Arizona is not only a crass political maneuver to force Obama to prove his citizenship again in the next election, but could potentially ban candidates whose “citizenship” may be in question from being placed on ballots in Arizona. If the Birthers still aren’t convinced that the U.S. President is a citizen, one wonders how they will react to any person of color on Arizona’s ballot.
