Trump and 'the blacks'

Slate's John Dickerson writes: "Trump has moved his focus to questioning whether Obama was qualified to attend Harvard. (Obama graduated magna cum laude and served as editor of the Harvard Law Review, trinkets not just distributed at the bookstore.) One of the evils of racism is that it locks in the idea that no matter how well you do, your achievements will never be considered legitimate. Because of the color of your skin, someone will always be raising doubts about you. The only way Trump can top himself now is to attack Obama for not serving in Vietnam. Maybe he's saving that for the fall campaign, along with the dancing lions and flaming acrobats." By the way, Trump has a Bachelor's degree in economics from the Univ. of Pennsylvania. And he didn't graduate magna cum laude (as he keeps proving daily).
