Of course Obama got personal.
He was afraid the Black Panthers would revoke his membership card.

I guess he paid his dues, so now he's an active member again.

<quoted text>Maybe Obama will invite his "Race Baiting" brother Al up to the White House so he can broadcast his MSNBC T.V. show from the Oval Office?

Hey, maybe ole Al will invite his race baiter cousin, Jesse, to make a cameo appearance too, so they can team up like they did for the Trayvon Martin charade?
Bobble heads always pull the "race baiter" bullshit when they don't have a real valid point.

Please continue.

i dont mind blacks. its the crazy ones that think they can rob and kill innocent people.and get away with it...thats the ones i cant stand. why cant blacks act civil? i mean this is 2013.if they would act decent.people would treat them decent.but we all know 90% of them act like ghetto fools.and those 90% make it hard for the ones trying to do the right thing.

It amazes me that he could know what his son would look like anyway! I've never known anyone that know what their children would look like before they were born? He must be a real smart black man. He only made it personal to improve he chances at re-election, and so all the black would feel good about themselves.

This is what my bumper sticker has on it:
It's okay to be racist if your black or Obama!!!

Only the truth will set you free!

Obama said travon could have been his son?i do believe that Rachel jeantel could be obamas daughter?her brain span without a teleprompter is just like barrys!both have to have someone else tell them what to say?obama has never told the public his true feelings about anything but has spoken from a speech prepared by someone else?so goes Rachel and with all her coaching she still lies?why does she need a personal lawyer?to tell her what to say to convict Zimmerman!judge nelson is helping her all she can?

Martin was a punk. He could have been any race, it doesn't matter that he was black. There is no question he circled back and attacked Zimmerman.

He was running away, so how did Zimmerman catch him?

It's ridiculous how people defend this punk kid.

People who defend him obviously want to hear what they want to hear and don't confuse them with the "facts" of the case.

This is so obviously a case of self defense it's absurd.

This whole "gated community" thing is a joke. This is a very low end cheaply built group of condos. So they put up a "gate",...wow.

The place is not a high end community. In fact it's a low end community in not that great of an area. You don't live around here do 'ya?

Martin is a punk. Zimmerman should not have exited his vehicle. Martin should not have attacked Zimmerman. The whole thing sucks, but Zimmerman was attacked and had the right to defend. Martin was stupid and immature and a dumb kid who thought he was a tough guy.

It's not that complicated.

Okay, Just don't act like a jerk and don't attack anyone and show RESPECT for others regardless of their race and you'll be just fine.

Cop the typical black attitude and life will be hard. It's your choice.

Blacks are like Muslims. 10% of them are so crazy they taint the whole bunch. It's too bad. Personally I like the black people I know.

Young black males seem to be the problem. They don't show respect for anyone.

It was politicians and their lap dog media that made this such a big issues. "gated community"phrase was coined by a Liberal Democrat. They are trying to keep racism alive in our country, when we fight amongst ourselves, they hold on to power.

People should Google "Lean/ hip hop drug" and see what poor little Trayvon was up to. It sure wasn't just Tea and Skittles.
