"Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago," Obama said ..
No Mr. Obama. Sure, both of you smoked it up and both of you had racist attitudes (you still have yours) but Martin had tons more street cred then
you. He and his daddy 'juice' had a little gun running thing about to take off. Martin would have kicked your half cracka' butt .... (apparently
I can say 'cracka' but can't say the 'N' word.
Full Text of Obama's Speech on Trayvon
You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son.
No Mr Obama you said that if you had a son he would have looked like Martin. Big difference.
What you said first was racial in intent. This 'could have been my son' is you covering.
I think it's important to recognize that the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that
doesn't go away.
How about they look at it in the here and now instead of pulling out the 'great great great granddaddy was a slave' card?
his isn't to say that the African American community is naïve about the fact that African American young men are disproportionately involved in
the criminal justice system; that they're disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence.
'Mr. Obama, why didn't you take this opportunity to say it straight and tell those young black men to stop with the criminal activities??
Especially the ones where they beat the heck out of each other?? Ya' know?
Now, the question for me at least, and I think for a lot of folks, is where do we take this?
I'm sure I know where you want to take it .... end laws that allow citizens to defend themselves and force them to count on the government for
'protection' .... and you won't ever say it but to take away gun rights would probably tickle your fancy as well ... and I'm sure you'd like to
sneak in some 'redistribution of wealth' ...
When I was in Illinois, I passed racial profiling legislation, and it actually did just two simple things. One, it collected data on traffic stops
and the race of the person who was stopped. But the other thing was it resourced us training police departments across the state on how to think about
potential racial bias and ways to further professionalize what they were doing
So in other words ... punish cops who arrest or pull over black people if they pull over or arrest more than what you think the percentage should be??
Really?? Free pass to black people breaking the law if the quota has been filled for the month on the number of black arrests allowed?
if we're sending a message as a society in our communities that someone who is armed potentially has the right to use those firearms even if
there's a way for them to exit from a situation, is that really going to be contributing to the kind of peace and security and order that we'd like
Great. So if someone defends him or her self using a fire arm and because they don't see any other way ... and then some prosecution lawyer decides
that there may have been a way to not use the fire arm they'll go and prosecute the person who protected him self or her self with the fire arm.
This is a round about way of disarming the public and punishing those who have fire arms to protect themselves with. Bad.
we need to spend some time in thinking about how do we bolster and reinforce our African American boys
.. tell them to stop shooting each other; to get off the drugs; to stay in school; that there is no such thing as 'talking white', it's called
speaking correct English; and don't let them get hooked on an entitlement society mentality.
am I wringing as much bias out of myself as I can? Am I judging people as much as I can, based on not the color of their skin, but the content of
You first, Mr. Obama.
And those of us in authority should be doing everything we can to encourage the better angels of our nature, as opposed to using these episodes to
If you really believe that then you'd better have a talk with Holder, Mr. Obama.
The dude literally has his 'race card' in his wallet.
I'm a black man first - wallet card
HERE IT COMES ....
FLAME AWAY ....
