Jackson: Trump birth talk is race “code”

Via: Ben Smith @ Politico

Rev. Jesse Jackson told POLITICO today that the birther movement is part of a larger pattern of rollbacks against civil rights and and an attack on the legitimacy of the nation’s first African-American president — reserving special ire for developer Donald Trump and his renewed interest in the conspiracy theory.

“Any discussion of his birthplace is a code word,” said Jackson. “It calls upon ancient racial fears.”

“Trump has trumpeted this cause. For him to go down this low is a bit surprising,” Jackson said, making explicit what many black leaders have suggested. “He is now tapping into code-word fears that go far beyond a rational discourse.”

Jackson also pointed to a broader pattern of hostility towards civil rights — pointing to a number of events, including the battle over public sector unions, a transportation policy that he says disadvantages poor minority city dwellers, and a renewed interest in policies like voter ID.
