I doubt Obama protected behind all of his top notch security would've been followed.

Obama is acting like an ignorant asshole as well with the women cluching their purses statement as well.. Just seems really low for a president to say something like that.

Obama if you really want justice you would speak out on the crime epidemic happening in Chicago or any US "ghetto"

You see, this is what upsets me the most. You Liberals love that racial bullshit don'tcha?? Every Conservative in your eyes is a racist, bigot, or a Neo-Nazi.

In your world, it's slander first, provide opinions second. What a pathetic way to live your life.

Both parties are equally guilty of applying labels to their opponents but you continue to eat that shit up.

i think the point of the leader of the country saying that publicly is because he's implying that it could have been any of us at 17yo.

part of the deal of being prez is to put yourself front and center, try to do the right thing, and take ungodly amounts of punishment no matter what you do. IIRC the number of death threats against the POTUS quadrupled from any previous high when he took office.

to be fair he could also have said "GZ could have been me if i was much older and... of a certain mindset" (or something like that)

I don't know if you saw the full video, but he goes on to talk about his race and how he has had to deal with certain stereotypes of being a black man. I would agree with you had he not made it about race, but it's been about race with him since day 1.
