Skip to comments.Obama: Trayvon Martin ‘could have been me 35 years ago’...(Here we go again!)
Posted on 07/19/2013 11:50:37 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway
President Barack Obama, breaking his silence on the George Zimmerman acquittal, said Friday that many African-Americans believe that both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different if Trayvon Martin had been white. You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son, Obama said somberly during a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago. In searingly personal terms, Obama described his personal experience with race-based prejudice. There are very few African-American men in this country who havent had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store -- that includes me, he said.

Obama has foot in mouth disease, or is that hoof in mouth?
It’s always about him...isn’t it??? What a self righteous SOB!
Except for skittles bam bam goes for the coke and weed.
“That is if Trayvon were a homosexual.”
If Shantay(or whatever her name is) was my friend girl I might consider the switch
Politically, this should hurt the president.
According to a recent poll, only 21% thought this was a case of racial profiling. About 58% thought it was not a case of profiling, remainder with no opinion.
I would guess, then, that only racist black agitation types, and the MSNBC crowd want to see Eric Holder file civil right charges against Zimmerman. It could set off a political firestorm if he does, which could in turn interfere with the other political objectives of the president.
does he really want to go there, especially as we are all learning more about how Trayvon was a gang banger in training????? And that this incident was hardly a case of an innocent black boy just walking home????
Way to bring the country together jerk!
Pray for America to Wake Up
Guess, whatever takes the focus off
Your IRS chief, directing illegal activity against conservs
Gagging Benghazi survivors to coverup your ineptness.
Holders organization PAYING to stir up protest against Zimmerman.
And Whatever mid east War you happen to engaging in. Give the Nobel back, while your at it.
So Obama was burglarizing homes and mugging people at night 35 years ago?
President Barack Obama, breaking his silence on the George Zimmerman acquittal, said Friday that many African-Americans believe that both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different if Trayvon Martin had been white.We're not living in the South during Reconstruction, Mr. President.
The scenario you're describing has already occurred; the "outcome" was exactly the same. The "aftermath", however, was totally different.
I seriously doubt Obama could have laid whoop-ass down on the blood people.
We knew Trayvon Martin.
Trayvon martin was a friend of ours.
You’re no Trayvon Martin.
“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago”, ain’t KARMA a BITCH!
you could say Obama is full of himself!
You are him a thug, tyrant moron.
Cloven hood in mouth and forked tail to match his forked tongue..
But would Barry have shared his Skittles with Larry Sinclair?
Worthless punks both who contribute nothing to society.
