“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
For all the bluster about the George Zimmerman verdict, one key fact is overlooked: President Obama. Now President Obama is in no way responsible for what happened that fateful night, in the courtroom during the trial, or on the streets today.
He is the man in charge of the multicultural bully pulpit.
How often do we hear that conservatives are guilty of racism, or tacitly approve of racism, or perpetuate racial stereotypes, or fan the flames of hate, etc.? They often get accused of being guilty of things like this when they are in no way attached to it!
President Obama has interjected himself twice into this story.
At neither point was he needed.
Mr. President, call on the nation to forgive George Zimmerman, a man found not guilty by a jury of his peers, and let him live in peace.
For God’s sake, sir, you are a community organizer!
