I really do live in a bubble -- and I'll stay right where I am, thanks.
Among people I know, it would be impossible to find anyone who does not believe that President Obama was born in the United States -- but the media keep discussing the so-called "birthers" who cling to this lunacy.
Turns out there's a reason I've never met one: they are clustered (quarantined?) in the South.
H/t Washington Monthly. Only 47 percent of Southerners know the right answer -- and we can assume most of the Black ones get it right, so that implies a strong majority of whites get it wrong.
This vein of ignorance is an example the core logic of white supremacy: no Black man could be qualified to be President; a Black man is President; hence he must be unqualified. Huh?
