Obama: Trayvon Could Have Been Me

Posted by on Jul 19, 2013 at 2:37 pm

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.

    I’d say you’re the one throwing a tantrum here. Obama was very measured on this. Try to listen if you can.

    Civil rights are a nice idea. George Martin, and the Martin family also have civil rights. The President should respect Martin’s civil rights and end his administration persecution of Martin.

    Mr. President, call off your dogs.

    President 45 as a pampered ,protected 17 year old vs. Trayvon Martin is absurd.However, He can make up for this by taking some inner city youths on his next vacation in Massachusets.

    David Lentz:

    Neither the Beatles’ record producer nor the author of the Song of Fire and Ice series of novels has anything to do with this.

    And MDL is right. If those comments set you off, that’s on you, not the president.

    I have never seen the Office of President so diminished in stature as with this pathetic spectacle. A President of the United States with all manner of national crises appearing on the national stage focuses instead on whining wistfully about the outcome of a trial he obviously didn’t like.

    People actually believed this President would improve race relations. Instead he has ushered in race riots, a Justice Department that uses race as a proxy for guilt and innocence, and waxes superfluous about how his own days as a drug abusing member of the Choom Gang make him a wannabe Treyvon Martin.

    There are so many great, qualified people, black, white, brown, Asian and more in this great country. What a shame we ended up with Barrack Obama as President.

    MDL … if by very measured you mean he repeated falsehoods about the case (Stand your ground) and implied that Martin was racially profiled which stokes racial tension then I would agree with you, he was measured …

    There is no “measured response” from the obnoxious, arrogant fool who speaks down to 85% of the people he is supposed to represent.

    As President of the ENTIRE United States, you do not get the luxury of lecturing ANYONE on your “unique” viewpoint on race. The office is WITHOUT race. Period. You don’t get that privilege. No President should.
