President Obama found it necessary to put in his two cents on the topic that is draining the intelligence of our nation this week. Obama made the statement, “When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.” First of all, I completely disagree with this statement. Coming from a public figure who has consistently charging others with racial profiling, simply profiled himself, and quite publicly. After the President spoke about the Martin verdict, it didn’t seem to pacify the anger in the country at all, rather add fuel to a fire of racism.

On the morning before President Obama made his speech, an African American Hollywood actor, Romany Malco, wrote a brilliant post shared on Huffington Post. It was thoughtful, educated, and insightful. Then you have Obama later profiling himself and saying this “could’ve been me.” That is so far from the truth, it makes my head spin. That’s like saying it could’ve been Tiger Woods because of the color of his skin. We’re going to have to agree to disagree on this one. I’m not buying anything the President is trying to sell.
