Obama picks scab off America’s racial wound

sums up Obama and his purpose for taking one CITIZENS side over another CITIZEN...and here you thought he represents ALL citizens of this country..how you liking that vote of yours now? Hispanics need to wake up about the Democrat party and see how they just got thrown under the bus by them and their own president

SNIP:
President Obama, America’s first half-black, half-white president, went to the White House podium last week to address the nation’s most racially divisive case since Rodney King.


But he wasn’t there to calm the country. And he certainly wasn’t there to start some “conversation” on race — he doesn’t find those “particularly productive,” he said, what with all the listening. Instead, he came out unannounced to the briefing room to talk about “how people are feeling.”

Not all people, mind you, just black people — and especially, as always, himself.


“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” said the half-white man mostly raised in Hawaii by two white grandparents. He ticked off a list of racist actions he said whites take whenever there’s a black man (especially him) nearby — locking car doors, clutching purses closer. “I don’t want to exaggerate this,” he said, exaggerating wildly as he labeled all white people racist.

The president, it turned out, had come to pick the scab off America’s healing wound. The nation had been injured, and everything was bloody: A Hispanic man shot a black teenager in a vicious street fight. No one but George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin knows how it all started, who struck first, why a seemingly meaningless altercation ended in death.

But a jury, picked by the prosecutors and the defense, listened to three weeks of testimony. And at the end of the trial, the jurors heard the legal instructions of the judge. They weighed the evidence, then applied the law. What happened that night in a Florida neighborhood was tragic, the jury decided, but it wasn’t murder.

Violence, sporadic but intense, swept through communities across the country for a week after the verdict, but was subsiding. The president, however, wanted to reopen the case.

“There’s going to be a lot of arguments about the legal issues in the case — I’ll let all the legal analysts and talking heads address those issues,” said America’s first biracial president, who happens to be a lawyer. It was clear from the outset he would offer no balm, only salt for the wound.

See, for Mr. Obama, there were no shades of gray — the case wasn’t even black and white, just black. Only Trayvon’s parents lost someone that night, he implied as he praised their “incredible grace and dignity.” Mr. Zimmerman’s parents, though, didn’t matter. They didn’t even rate a mention from the president, who had decided that the jury was wrong — which is really what brought him to the podium.

And he couldn’t have cared less about how Mr. Zimmerman had lost his life, too, in a very real way: No, the president wanted to make his life worse, to pile on. And even though the altercation was not racially motivated — the testimony was clear on that point — Mr. Obama, adept at pitting side against side, was eager to play the race card.

“The African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away,” he said, refusing to move America beyond its racist past.

He oddly segued into black-on-black crime: gangs, drugs, he said. But America’s past is to blame for that: slavery, repression, he said. “Some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history.”

Yes, slavery 150 years ago is still causing inner-city crime today. Victimology at its finest.

Forget the fact that Mr. Zimmerman was mentoring two black children whose father is serving a life sentence (Mr. Obama didn’t mention that — it didn’t fit the narrative). Instead, he made a shocking charge: “If a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”

ALL of it here

a lot of interesting comments from citizens of the country that Obama uses only for an agenda with article at site...someone there mentioned a video people should watch called, grinding America down...I haven't watched it or heard about but sounds interesting to see

.

I especially liked the parts of the speech where he challenged black fathers to stay home and raise their kids, where he challenged black parents to raise and maintain standards and expectations for their children, where he challenged blacks of all ages to work hard, learn from failure and expect more from themselves (as all people should do, regardless of color), and I REALLY liked the part of the speech where he challenged black leaders such as Sharpton, Jackson, community leaders and church leaders to do the same.

Yeah, that was great! Loved it!

obama didn't give that speech because he cares about America. He gave it for two reasons, one is he wants to use this case to repeal all self defense laws, and two, he was softening the blow prior to announcing that there will be no federal prosecution of George Zimmerman.

You guys are turning into the people you profess to hate so much. Thread after thread about race. You guys whine about race all day long but offer no solutions.
and you're turning into a whining troll who offers nothing..
What are yout solutions then? Anybody can cut and paste. I think it was a good speech, one of the better ones of his presidency. He said all of the things you idiots have been touching on for the last two weeks, African Americans need to be more accountable and steps need to be taken in the African American community for that to happen. You guys ***** and moan about libs always bringing race into issues but name one thread on the front page started by a lib about race. They are all started by so called conservatives.

sums up Obama and his purpose for taking one CITIZENS side over another CITIZEN...and here you thought he represents ALL citizens of this country..how you liking that vote of yours now? Hispanics need to wake up about the Democrat party and see how they just got thrown under the bus by them and their own president

SNIP:
President Obama, America’s first half-black, half-white president, went to the White House podium last week to address the nation’s most racially divisive case since Rodney King.


But he wasn’t there to calm the country. And he certainly wasn’t there to start some “conversation” on race — he doesn’t find those “particularly productive,” he said, what with all the listening. Instead, he came out unannounced to the briefing room to talk about “how people are feeling.”

Not all people, mind you, just black people — and especially, as always, himself.


“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” said the half-white man mostly raised in Hawaii by two white grandparents. He ticked off a list of racist actions he said whites take whenever there’s a black man (especially him) nearby — locking car doors, clutching purses closer. “I don’t want to exaggerate this,” he said, exaggerating wildly as he labeled all white people racist.

The president, it turned out, had come to pick the scab off America’s healing wound. The nation had been injured, and everything was bloody: A Hispanic man shot a black teenager in a vicious street fight. No one but George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin knows how it all started, who struck first, why a seemingly meaningless altercation ended in death.

But a jury, picked by the prosecutors and the defense, listened to three weeks of testimony. And at the end of the trial, the jurors heard the legal instructions of the judge. They weighed the evidence, then applied the law. What happened that night in a Florida neighborhood was tragic, the jury decided, but it wasn’t murder.

Violence, sporadic but intense, swept through communities across the country for a week after the verdict, but was subsiding. The president, however, wanted to reopen the case.

“There’s going to be a lot of arguments about the legal issues in the case — I’ll let all the legal analysts and talking heads address those issues,” said America’s first biracial president, who happens to be a lawyer. It was clear from the outset he would offer no balm, only salt for the wound.

See, for Mr. Obama, there were no shades of gray — the case wasn’t even black and white, just black. Only Trayvon’s parents lost someone that night, he implied as he praised their “incredible grace and dignity.” Mr. Zimmerman’s parents, though, didn’t matter. They didn’t even rate a mention from the president, who had decided that the jury was wrong — which is really what brought him to the podium.

And he couldn’t have cared less about how Mr. Zimmerman had lost his life, too, in a very real way: No, the president wanted to make his life worse, to pile on. And even though the altercation was not racially motivated — the testimony was clear on that point — Mr. Obama, adept at pitting side against side, was eager to play the race card.

“The African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away,” he said, refusing to move America beyond its racist past.

He oddly segued into black-on-black crime: gangs, drugs, he said. But America’s past is to blame for that: slavery, repression, he said. “Some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history.”

Yes, slavery 150 years ago is still causing inner-city crime today. Victimology at its finest.

Forget the fact that Mr. Zimmerman was mentoring two black children whose father is serving a life sentence (Mr. Obama didn’t mention that — it didn’t fit the narrative). Instead, he made a shocking charge: “If a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”

Obama has a unique make-up. He's a mixed race White African American~ He's also a politically liberal dark skinned guy with white affluent guilt, catering to his racist religious theology.... OF COURSE he'll exploit the Trayvon Martin case.
