Conservative political commentator Sean Hannity believes he has found the common thread between Trayvon and Obama:
“Now the president’s saying Trayvon could’ve been me 35 years ago,” Hannity said on his radio show. “This is a particularly helpful comment. Is that the president admitting that I guess because what, he was part of the Choom Gang and he smoked pot and he did a little blow — I’m not sure how to interpret because we know that Trayvon had been smoking pot that night.” (source)
At Friday’s White House press briefing, President Obama compared himself to Trayvon Martin – again.
Obama’s appearance at the press briefing was unexpected. He spoke about the Zimmerman verdict, the country’s struggle with racial bias, and his own personal experiences with racial profiling:
Once again Barack Obama has waded into the Zimmerman-Martin issue by saying “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.”
In what some are calling the most emotional speech he has made on racial issues since taking office, he spoke for 20 minutes during an unscheduled appearance in the White House briefing room.
Not using a teleprompter, he spoke about racial profiling and said that most black American men, including himself, had experienced this at some point.
He went on to point out that African Americans are aware that there are racial disparities in the application of criminal law . (source)
Well, President Obama…if the hoodie fits, perhaps you should wear it.
