President Obama said Friday that all Americans should respect the George Zimmerman verdict, but white Americans should also understand that African Americans continue to face racial discrimination.


Hey? Let's expand the great racial divide even further



"Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago," Obama said during a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room.


Mr. president not a very smart thing to say considering what happened.

I am sick of this out of all the things that he should be talking about he decides to expand the great racial divide even further.

Both Martins Parents. and The FBI said that race was not an issue, the court itself said race was not an issue either so WHY MR. PRESIDENT did you decide to open your mouth?

Wouldn't your time be better served answering on things this like:

Benghazi ?
IRS Spying?
Holder being in contempt?
NSA Spying?
Gun running to Mexico that has killed thousands of the people who you are currently trying to legalize in one breathe and turn them in to a Mata Hari in another breathe.

Correct me if I am wrong here, the current 'racist' country elected YOU as POTUS well that's not a very 'racist' thing to do on their part considering how much they supposedly 'hate' certain ethnic groups.

Mr. President and i do use the term loosely definately not a 'uniter' and most definately a divider of using politics best weapons of mass destruction, racism.

If it's not race warfare it's class warfare.
If it's not either of those then is sex warfare.

Contrary to the dogma that is being peddle by the current divider in chief I am not obsessed with psychological warfare as the Potus and his party is,because their entire platform is nothing but manipulation to keep us fighting between ourselves.

A divided house is easily conquered a united house will stand up to the most corrupt administration in US history.

Seems anytime they want to take the heat of domestic, or foreign issues the warfare card gets played.

People take yourselves out of the game of political machination's..

I report you decide.

Obama is doing everything he can to create a racial division in the country.

There is only one race and it is HUMAN.

First he was his son. Then he was him. Next he'll be the son of god that Zimmerman struck down.


When I was a teenager I was followed by security, even nabbed for suspicion of shoplifting on more than one occasion, followed by cops, stopped and asked what I was doing in this "neighborhood" and on and on all through my teens and early twenties.

Last time I checked a mirror I was pretty white.

I don’t know why the POTUS feels the need to comment on everything. With so many important things going on in the world, doesn’t this dude have something else to do? I can see if there was a big tragedy and many people died (like a plane crash or natural disaster) but this was a justifiable homicide!!!!

60+ black kids have been murdered in Chicago since the verdict!! Either Obama is slow at responding or maybe there is another reason….like the shooters weren’t White/Hispanics!

So is Obama, by 50%. You wouldn't think that, to hear him speak sometimes though would you?

It's like his white half doesn't exist in there at all. How else to so clearly polarize to one side? It is something to watch.

With all due respect, this is (as you're well aware) a discussion forum and not a MSM piece.

Someone has to point out this guys ridiculousness because the MSM sure isn't doing it. They're too busy carrying his water.

Anything to make whites feel more guilty and blacks more prosecuted. Nothing like racial tensions to help divide and conquer. Soon, it won't matter at all seeing we'll all be sitting on the street together starving begging for a government handout which will never come as we slowly perish, together.

Those who don't see what's going on is blinded by manufactured anger. It's not their fault, it's ours for allowing it to happen in the first place.

Mr. Barack Hussein Obama is just trying to foment racial hatred and keep the media circus alive so we all get distracted and forget about the egregious and traitorous actions of the rogue government regime he is the talking head puppet for.

Divide and conquer tactics. Lets all, white and black, see it for what it is, and move on with our combined attention focused on the real criminals; like those who would impose NDAA 2012 on us and declare it legal to assassinate any citizen on a whim.

He has his base to worry about. 97% of African-American voters voted for him. A great many African-American people feel that they are being "held down by the man". His major voting block are concerned about the Martin case.

- Benghazi = four dead creepy azz crackas - no effect on his base
- IRS scandal = conservative groups (mostly crackas) targeted - no effect on his base
- media bugging = mostly crackas again - no effect on his base
- F&F = illegal guns to mexico - did not effect his base (until amnesty is passed)

The tragic thing in all this is that a young man lost his life. I will not say I understand Trayvon. I am white so I can never understand (to most people). I grew up poor in a terrible neighborhood, I was one of nine white kids in a school with over 1500 students, I was beaten by cops at age thirteen (first time), I experimented with chemical entertainment in my youth, I was a criminal and a thug when I was sixteen. I would have attacked Zimmerman too when I was Trayvon's age. Yet I do not understand him.

People can refuse to look at facts all they want. Refuse to accept that Trayvon was not a "good kid", keep saying "skittles and iced tea (and forgetting that this is 2/3 of the ingredients for Lean). Blind yourselves to the fight videos and the possible selling of stolen guns. Martin had his whole life ahead of him.

Many will say that he was destined for prison or death. I will say there is a third option. he could have wisened up, went to school, made something of himself, and been a decent human being. I am proof that the third option is possible. The saddest part of this whole mess is that we will never know what route his life would have taken.

++sorry for the rant................

Seriously Obama give it a rest...

Trayvon 'could have been me'. Yeah I guess so, he could have also been a White, Hispanic, Asian, Arab or any other race for that matter. So what does that have to do with anything? The color of his skin?

I said it once (more than once?) and I'll say it again, race has nothing to do with this case. Any chance someone can play the race card they sure as hell will...

That's is what I am doing to coin a phrase I hope people will change the way they view current events.

The opposite intended effect of the Potus.

It looks like Obama's speech writers have decided to tone it down a bit.

At least on the surface that is.

Now they're trying out the 'subtle' messaging trick.

Obama has absolutely no business at all commenting in a case like this.

It was bad enough when the case was open.

Can anybody sense any subliminal messages hidden within the videos ?

I bet they use that tactic too.

I just love this quote from him:




The president delivered extensive remarks during a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room. He underscored the role race may have played in the case, saying that if a "white male teen" were involved "both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different."


Does he not understand that there were no whites involved in this at all? Trayvon is black and Zimmerman is Hispanic. The lengths the administration is going to in order to push racial tensions and distract from real news is ridiculous. Someone was shot and killed...happens EVERY day in Atlanta and numerous cities around the US.

If everybody should respect the verdict, then why have the DOJ put on a dog and pony show with the investigation?

As for his statement, it seemed to me he tried to appease the black population (what blacks go through) on one hand and the white population (things are getting better) with the other.


Peace
