President Obama Trayvon Martin speech keeps it REAL………
The Tryavon Martin Case reminded us all that we still live in a racial world where justice is NOT available to all, but thank God we finally have a president who is black that knows a little something about that!
Zimmerman’s verdict was a blatant reminder of the injustice that continues to go on in the 21st century. This so-called justice system turned a murderer (Zimmerman) free based off of a THEORY that he was threatened and had to stand his ground…. but in all seriousness… how do you feel threatened by a teenager (Trayvon) that you are following? If I felt threatened by a person, unless he was following me I would RUN the OPPOSITE direction from the person pumping fear in me!
President Obama addressed the Zimmerman verdict and asked a VERY profound question, “I just ask people to consider if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk? And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman, who had followed him in a car, because he felt threatened?”
