USF Director of African American Studies James Taylor on Trump's acceptance of Obama's birth certificate  | USF in the News |

“After more than five years as de facto head of the birther movement, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump finally conceded Friday that President Obama was born an American citizen.” 


“The idea that he handled it is a strident statement loaded with racism that he single-handedly brought this black man, the president of the United States, to heel,” said James Taylor, a professor of politics and director of the African American Studies program at the University of San Francisco. “And now the suggestion that he’s not going to talk about his leadership of the birther movement will be an issue.”
