What did Obama have for lunch today? I think you have a pretty good view.
race baiting president playing the race card---it never ends.
I turn a deaf ear to any politician making a speech. I find the very concept of political speeches offensive. They can't even spew their own BS. Someone else has to write it for them.
Robert Zimmerman is much, much smarter than the president, and certainly more articulate.
His public comments were directed to the problems facing all youth and what we can do to meet their needs, not just those of any particular racial minority.
and liberal women. He has said this repeatedly.
His only purpose for white men who haven't been been neutered, is taxing their labor while calling them racists and greedy.
Gave you a star... rep. :grin:
As already noted...The Irony!
That said lets see who obama identifies in his speech giving the idea they would have been treated differently.
"And that all contributes I think to a sense that if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, that, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different."
It has nothing to do with "victim complex" but controlling people through emotions with ridiculous assertions...
Maybe I missed it when skimming but did Obama mention "Hispanic" or even "white Hispanic"?
It wasn't a speech, it was a 17 minute off the cuff monologue about what the President thought were the problems the case highlighted. Partly personal, reflective, and inclusive as he truthfully recounted the problems faced and caused by young black males in America and suggested beginning points we might work on. He specifically eliminated new federal programs or politician/celebrity led power house campaigns as solutions. There wasn't much there to disagree with except for those who want immediate action or the haters.
DK, but you and others must have had too much gin and rancid meat and are puking it all over this thread.
Reminds me of that ESPN commercial.
Just heard a great analogy that obama had an opportunity to be a thermostat but continues to be a thermometer. As a thermostat he had an opportunity to help control the racial temperature in this country but instead he simply makes statements reflecting how hot things are.
This guy has no comprehension of true leadership and it's value.
He's supposedly a smart guy. If he's followed the case at all, he knows this isn't a race based case. Totally irresponsible response.
Whatever his personal thoughts on race, injecting them here just perpetuates a lie about this case. Probably intentionally. And, not insignificantly, prevents an acquitted man from moving on with his life. If Obama wanted to help heal the country from this entirely phoney and manufactured race crisis, it would be to dovetail his reflections on race with a distinction from the actual case, and to announce that he would instruct the DOJ to close its investigation.
So wait...you mean he's not pointing the finger at conservative whites? Well who's he pointing the finger at, then? It's got to be somebody. It always is. You sure it's not conservatives? Because it's usually them.
Blacks didn't blame whites as a whole, they were specifically protesting Zimmerman not being charged, conservative whites led by Sean Hannity decided to step in and defend
You guys took up the mantle on your own
I found his comments on race interesting to listen to, particularly his personal perspectives. But you're right - totally out of context here. He didn't accuse GZ of racially profiling TM, but take that free-floating premise out of the mix and there's not even any basis for talking about race in the context of the Zimmerman case. Not any legitimate basis, that is.
I still think his remarks were interesting. Don't see how they were productive though. To the contrary.
108...what color is the sky in your world?
Why were people protesting Zimmerman not being charged?
Good grief the prosecution proved why they did not charge him in the first place...
A nice shade of blue
And in this world, I am not constantly complaining about anything and everything
I am a white male in the US, things really aren't that bad
Because a kid ended up dead despite the lack of evidence to prove what happened one way or the other
