So what’s he saying, he was a gay-bashing pothead thug 35 years ago?
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.
“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” Obama said during a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room.
Obama said he himself has been subjected to casual prejudice, but also said African Americans need to address the problems of violence in their own communities.
A Florida jury acquitted Zimmerman on Saturday night of murder in the 2012 death of the 17-year-old Trayvon.
In a 17-minute address that got emotional at times, Obama said he respects the different views of the verdict, but the jury has spoken, and “that’s how our system works.”
If the system really worked Obama and his agitator buddies would have accepted the verdict by now. But six days later they’re still throwing a tantrum. But Obama has to do anything to distract from all his scandals and failures.
