Republican Racism Review: Birthers, Ethnic Studies, and Trayvon Martin Followup

Real button handed out at the 2008
Texas Republican State Convention
If you start keeping your eyes open for them, there are a terrifying number of news stories about Republicans being racist:
  • Sheriff Joe shouldn't worry though, while Mitt Romney might not be openly calling for Obama to release a birth certificate he already did 4 years ago, Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) is.
  • Georgia is discovering for the second year in a row that if you scare all of your agricultural workers out of the state with draconian immigration laws (seriously, you weren't allowed to be sold water unless you could prove citizenship) that there isn't actually anyone left to do your agricultural work.
  • And in Arizona, the Republicans have decided that removing Ethnic Studies from high schools isn't enough, they need to ban in from their universities too.  Because that doesn't come across as a desperate attempt o rewrite history at all.
