Obama picks scab off America’s racial wound
The Washington Times ^ | 7/21/2013 | Joe Curl

Posted on 07/21/2013 7:07:10 PM PDT by markomalley

President Obama, America’s first half-black, half-white president, went to the White House podium last week to address the nation’s most racially divisive case since Rodney King.

But he wasn’t there to calm the country. And he certainly wasn’t there to start some “conversation” on race — he doesn’t find those “particularly productive,” he said, what with all the listening. Instead, he came out unannounced to the briefing room to talk about “how people are feeling.”

Not all people, mind you, just black people — and especially, as always, himself.

“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” said the half-white man raised mostly in Hawaii by two white grandparents. He ticked off a list of racist actions he said whites take whenever a black man (especially him) is nearby — locking car doors, clutching purses closer. “I don’t want to exaggerate this,” he said, exaggerating wildly as he labeled all white people racist.

The president, it turned out, had come to pick the scab off America’s healing wound. The nation had been injured, and everything was bloody: A Hispanic man shot a black teenager in a vicious street fight. No one but George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin knows how it all started, who struck first, why a seemingly meaningless altercation ended in death.

But a jury, picked by the prosecutors and the defense, listened to three weeks of testimony. At the end of the trial, the jurors heard the legal instructions of the judge. They weighed the evidence, then applied the law. What happened that night in a Florida neighborhood was tragic, the jury decided, but it wasn’t murder.

Violence, sporadic but intense, swept through communities across the country for a week after the verdict, but was subsiding. The president, however, wanted to reopen the case.

I’m surprised he forgot the part about the jury “acting stupidly”.

The media wants him to be Lincoln, JFK, Reagan and now he wants to identify with Martin? Who is this clown? Here in Oz we’re laughing ourselves silly like some retarded seal clapping our hands because we’re about to snort through our nose ....The US doesn’t or the media doesn’t realize how much of an idiot he’s shown himself to be overseas.

2008 elections = Obama exploits race; massive turnout.
2010 elections = Obama voters stay home.
2012 elections = Huge dropoff in Obama vote v 2008.
2014 elections = Obama exploits race; starts early.

Obama's imaginary proposition of Trayvon Martin being White and George Zimmerman being black is not even accurate. If Obama were even remotely honest, he would have said words to the effect of George Zimmerman being black and Trayvon Martin being Hispanic, because that is how Mr. Zimmerman rightly regarded himself.

“Obama picks scab off America’s racial wound”

Excellent headline.

Seems like, doesn’t it? And what timing with millions of Mexicans, Brazilians, Guatemalans and Canadians pouring in to get amnesty.

But don’t ask our so-called “conservative” House to cut off some of his funding. Because they won’t listen anyway. They’ll just give him more.

“The US doesn’t or the media doesn’t realize how much of an idiot he’s shown himself to be overseas.”

Some of us do. That’s why we’ve totally turned away from the mass media in the US, and now depend on foreign sources for our news. It’s tragic how the UK and Canadian media have much more accurate and timely information than our “news” networks. And, of course, websites where we can find like minded souls.

There are now 2 divided Americas, one that’s portrayed publicly, and the other that’s mostly below the radar.

With all the White hate going on towards White Americans, who would want to go near any blacks anymore!
I sure don't want the headache and baggage. Good luck finding jobs thanks to Democrats. We're fed up wil false accusations.

Whenever I see Obama on TV, my first instinct is to grab my 401k statement.

Exactly. I watch the TV news here and stream some stuff from other countries. I read the India Times and the Tokyo Times then check stories in the US and they’re completely different in that the US MSM distorts the fact somewhat giving a completely different slant. Then too stories that happen in the US that are important but are not broadcasted. It’s a totally different US here.

I would say he's more like a festering sore that refuses to heal.

“United they stand, divided they fall.” It’s all the commies have. They’ve used it perfectly to destroy America.

“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,”

Not a convincing argument.

Everything dumBO does is about him.
