Is the true Obama mission to actually widen the racial chasm in America?

The jury is still out as to the EXACT circumstances surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman!

What we do know is that George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman admitted to that fact although he claims self-defense.

That said, by the evidence as we know it today, all indications point to the fact that Zimmerman should most likely have been brought in by the police and may likely be guilty of some crime.

Again, those are the facts based on the evidence as we know it today!

President Obama on the Trayvon Martin case!

We also know President Obama's thoughts regarding the Trayvon Martin case. “If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon. And I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and that we're going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.”

This statement was made as the result of a question put to the President at a press conference. A question that many feel had been planted in order to give the President the opening that he wanted to speak to this case.

An opportunity that he would not have had if that question were not specifically asked. Had he taken the initiative on his own it would have raised additional eyebrows concerning his propensity for getting involved in cases surrounding race.

And inciting class warfare and widening the racial chasm in America is along the lines of what President Obama has done since the beginning of his presidency.

A perfect example would be his public intervention in the arrest of black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. by Cambridge cop Sgt. James Crowley back in 2009. At the time, and before he knew all of the facts in the case, he said that the police officer had acted "stupidly".

After the fact, President Obama tried to put the genie back into the bottle saying this:

"Because this has been ratcheting up -- and I obviously helped to contribute ratcheting it up -- I want to make clear that in my choice of words, I think, I unfortunately... gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge police department or Sgt. Crowley specifically. And I could've calibrated those words differently. And I told this to Sgt. Crowley.

I continue to believe, based on what I have heard, that there was an overreaction in pulling Professor Gates out of his home to the station. I also continue to believe, based on what I heard, that Professor Gates probably overreacted as well. My sense is you've got two good people in a circumstance in which neither of them were able to resolve the incident in the way that it should have been resolved and the way they would have liked it to be resolved."

But the public damage had already been done in that case, much like the damage of having the in the Trayvon Martin case has already been done.


Does the President have some greater mission or agenda in his selection of the cases he decides to go public on?

Would the New Black Panther Party have reacted quite the same way had the President not infused himself into the case?

Would Spike Lee have Tweeted what he thought was Zimmerman's address simply through his own devices?

Would Roseanne Barr have made the statements that she made? Maybe, maybe not but I suppose we will never know!

The New Black Panther Party's Souther Regional Director had these ominous words regarding how the Trayvon Martin case should proceed:

George Zimmerman was not a police officer he was a community volunteer,” said Mikhail Muhammad, Southern Regional Director of the New Black Panther Party.

Zimmerman, who is currently in hiding due to the recent events where he gunned down the 17-year-old Martin, has the black political organization vowing to bring him to justice.

It’s time for us as black men to take justice in our own hands,” said Muhammad just outside the neighborhood where Martin was gunned down.

On Sunday a group of around ten members chanted slogan demanding “justice” for the cold blooded murder.

You kill mine god-damn it I got to kill yours” said Muhammad.

The black political organization has begun posting flyers calling for Zimmerman’s capture “dead or alive” and is offering a reward of $10,000 to the person who captures him..." (Source)

or this, "... MUHAMMAD: We have 40, 30,000 people out here today. According to street law. According to God’s law. And I want to say I don’t obey the white man’s law. I don’t follow the American law. American law — the American law does not protect me, Anderson..." (Source)

Focus Mr. President, focus!

The greater point being made is that the President should have enough on his plate to prevent him from getting involved in specific law enforcement cases or any other case for the sole purpose of playing politics. Or for the purpose of something even worse.

In a case like this the country would be better served for President Obama to keep to his day job of campaigning and fundraising and not addressing handpicked crimes. No matter how egregious those crimes may turn out to be!
