Is Birtherism Rooted in Racism

My take is that birtherism is indeed rooted in racism. Did anyone demand to see George Bush's birth certificate or Bill Clinton's or HW Bush's or Reagan's? No. It was never an issue until we had someone with dark skin running for president. Then crowds of older white people started claiming that he is not one of them and questioning his legitimacy. It is clearly because he is of African descent; clearly racism.
