Obama: Trayvon Martin ‘could have been me 35 years ago’...(Here we go again!)
Yahoo news ^ | 07/19/13 | Oliver Knox

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 haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store -- that includes me,” he said.

Jesse Jackson said he’d feel relieved if he was followed by whites.

Obama delivered the talking points. If Martin had been armed, he would have been justified in shooting Zimmerman. But he was a good little boy who didn’t think he needed a gun. I didn’t think I could detest obama more. The more I detest him, the more I detest those who voted for him and continue to support him. I know there are so many people who will say “He’s wrong about this, but....”

Will just one politician come out and condemn obama for this and stand with the Zimmermans? One?

Without lying and affirmation action - he’s right - it could have been him. The same hatred is there. He’s only bashing whitey now with a suit and not a hoodie.

"Obama: Trayvon Martin ‘could have been me 35 years ago"

That's not really fair to St. Trayvon.

I don't think he smoked that much dope.

The man is an agitator through and through. Trying to conjure up images of him ending up the same way as trayvon in peoples minds. Low down dirty politicking “how can i keep all my other scandals out of the news” b.s.

Why?

Was he smoking weed, drinking lean and jacking jewelry as a teen?

Big difference. Treyvon was worried about a white homo coming after him. Dumbo only dreams about that.

I am so sick of his lying crap. All his life he has been the beneficiary of being Black. He had no reason to rise above being a common laborer if he had been White.

The man is as seditious as Yevgrav Zhivago and Rasputin combined. Throw in some Trotsky for good measure and top with Lenin.

This man wants a race war.

10,000 BLACK MALES have been Murdered by BLACK MALES SINCE Trayvon was shot!

Not sure beating the white on black or rather White/Latino on Black crime dead horse is the burning issue of the day.

Skulking around with backpacks full of stolen merchandise, peeking in windows, afraid of homosexual rape, jumping “da man” and smashing in his nose, chooming all the time? Well, the last one certainly tracks.

35+17 would make him 52 when Trayvon died which would put his birth year as 1960 and make him 53 this year. hmmmmmm

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????

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.

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.

What if Trayvon Had Been White, and the Shooter Black?
