Never go full race-baiter.
“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” wasn’t subtle enough for the Reprimander-in-Chief. Now that we’ve had the trial that all the Zimmerman-haters have been screaming about, and now that the verdict hasn’t gone their way, Obama is just laying it all out there.
A Hispanic guy shot a black kid who was beating his head into the sidewalk because the black kid assumed the Hispanic guy was gay. And guess whose fault it is?
“If a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”
That’s right. If a white kid swung first at a Hispanic guy, pinned him to the sidewalk, and pummelled his face like an MMA fighter, that white kid couldn’t possibly get shot. It just wouldn’t happen. Zimmerman would’ve thought: “Uh-oh, I’d better not shoot this guy who’s beating the hell out of me. He’s white!” That’s exactly how it would’ve gone.
So says the President of the United States of America.
I’d like to hear from some representatives of the Hispanic community. How do they feel about President Obama driving a wedge deeper and deeper between blacks and Hispanics? Is he just arrogant enough to think that the Democrats can count on their votes in 2016, no matter what? Is he right? Why is it okay to make a Hispanic guy an Enemy of the State for defending his own life against an attacker?
And why is it racist to ask these things?
.@BarackObama: "Trayvon could've been me, 35 years ago." This is big. Can we track down the Hispanic guy he beat up for being gay?
