romney (michigan)*Like they say, “don’t start none, won’t be none.”

Well, actually we substituted “none” for a certain “s” word, but you get our drift.

That leads us to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who wonders why he gets zero love from African Americans.

Today, at a campaign stop in Commerce, Michigan, Romney came right out and made an appeal to birthers in the crowd.

“No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate,” he said to their delight.

Days after MSNBC’s Touré pointedly refused to include Romney in his apology for using the n-word to describe the campaign’s tactics, it appears the commentator’s critics owe him an apology, points out Tommy Christopher writing for Mediaite.

“I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised,” Romney told the crowd, “where both of us were born. Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital, I was born in Harper Hospital. No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

The crowd ate it up, and Romney’s remark is simply an extension of the years-long campaign that Touré described, to racially marginalize the President, reminded Christopher in his article.
