Here is a chance to calm racial tensions and a white President would not be able to do this, but a black President has the perfect opportunity to lead by example and help heal some of the anger felt by blacks but instead he stays mum because if he says anything in opposition to the threats being made to Zimmerman, blacks will be angry with him and might hold back from voting for him. And the racial tension right now is really dangerous. And it's not only white black but now Hispanic tension. The new black panther leader (eyeroll) has admitted that they hate whites and will not follow "the white man's law". And Obama says nothing, except to fuel the flame by saying Trayvon could've looked like his son.
