Obama was hailed by the MSM as the first “post racial” President of the US. Of course since ascending to the throne he hasn’t stopped talking about race ever since.
President Obama said Friday that Trayvon Martin, the unarmed 16-year-old shot dead last year, could have been him as a young man. ‘You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago,’
Obama said in a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room. Speaking for the first time about the outcome of the Trayvon Martin case, Obama said black Americans feel pain over George Zimmerman’s acquittal for Martin’s murder because of a history of racism that ‘doesn’t go away.’
I guess blacks also feel the pain caused to blacks by black on black murder , 94% of them, I understand. Also, when we are it, I wonder did these black Americans that Obama relates with feel the pain of many other folks when OJ got off with murder? Or is it selective pain based on racial stereotype? What do you think?
As was pointed out last year when he was doing a bit more “post racial” race hustling…
” He has not said a single critical word about the outrageous actions of the New Black Panthers, who offered a $10,000 bounty on George Zimmerman–the same New Black Panthers on whose behalf Eric Holder quashed a federal criminal prosecution; or of Spike Lee, who tweeted a wrong address for Zimmerman, presumably to facilitate harassment or even murder; or of the many liberals who have posted on the @killzimmerman Twitter feed; or of the many other Democrats and liberals who have indulged in an orgy of hate with respect to Mr. Zimmerman. President Obama’s interest in the victims of violence is selective: he cares if they look like the hypothetical son he doesn’t have..”
That’s what this comes down to. For a man who promised to move the US away from race, Obama seems fixated on it.
