This whole topic of TM is a TOTAL SHAM.

Obama, thru his Uncle Tom Policies, has caused the death of thousands of young black men.

Look at Libya.

Look at his Open Border Policies.
Look at his support for the Great Society Programs.

This "FAKED OUTRAGE" by Obama, and Holder and Sharpton and Jessie Jackson is laughable as the FACT IS, judging by Their OWN HISTORY, they could care less about TM.

It is time to end this FARCE

Obama weighing in on something that is a local issue.
He don,t weigh in on other killings all over this country.
He's a race baiter just like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. You all see what he's gonna do after he's done being president.

It isn't a local issue, dickweed.

If it was a local issue, there would not be news stories in every single newspaper across the USA.

Not so much as a bumped toe.

Tell the name of the young black man who died in Libya because of Obama.

Make sure you leave the source.

I was one of Barack Obama's biggest supporters in the first election.
I didn't agree with some of his plans but I was enthusiastic about his promise of transparency and a open, scandal-free presidency.
What he delivered on was one of the most if not the most corrupt administrations in recent history.
I would love to think this man was fooled or didn't know any better but he is an intelligent man and knows what he is doing, he knows its wrong.
Barack Obama has failed this nation and failed himself. I was raised to judge a man by his character and I agree that Barack Obama has no class but I'll add that of bad character too, his record proves that.

If there was any validity to this claim, the verdict would have been different.

Obama has been RESPONSIBLE for the deaths of more blacks than the KKK, just with his illegal war in the LIBYA.

http://globalciviliansforpeace.wordpress.com/...
A few excerts:

"After recognising the NTC(Obama Installed Rebel Government), the Nigerian government finally speak out against the mass lynchings of blacks by the ‘rebels’."

"The entry of the rebel brigade from Misrata – which the Wall Street Journal reports calls itself the “brigade to purge black skin, slaves” into Tripoli, enabled by NATO, led to inevitable round-ups of black people, massacres and abuses of human rights including the slaughter of patients in the Abu Salim hospital."

The WAR CRIMES against black Africans is YET ANOTHER REASON the MSM is burying the Benghazi story.

No, the jury members have already stated it thought the pedophile got away with murder, that it did not matter to them who started the fight only that the state could not prove the pedophile was not fearful of his own serious injury.

So is Mommie, and Daddy Martin going to file a wrongful death claim tomorrow? They need an all black jury, and a black Judge to get their way in court. That "ain't" gonna happen.

I think Obama should've stayed out of it.
Last week we all were discussing on our break the events and the trial and one of our low level managers, a black guy, over heard us and lost his mind. He told us we better STFU and threatened all of us with firing or "maybe even more". He was told to write an apology for our bulletin board and to apologize to us four too. He refused and was fired Friday. He wasn't related to the Martin's or even had family in Florida. The only thing he had in common was the color of his skin. He was always pretty cool with everyone before this.
Its amazing the racism in the black community this whole thing has brought out around here. Never knew is was like all that.

Yes, Obama may very well have been Trayvon 35 years ago. Hell, why is that such a surprise to the white people complaining? As president of the United States he has every right and responsibility to put the incident into perspective and help keep the peace. Obviously he's been profiled. If it were a story involving a woman being sexually harassed and the President a female would she be expected to keep her mouth shut too?

I see now why the wingnuts like puppets like Condi Rice.

Right.

White pedophile kills unarmed black boy walking through the neighborhood at 7 pm AND the killer's judge daddy gets him released without charge.

Blacks are enraged.

How dare they!

But your statement is leaving out important information about what happened and are creating untruths that have nothing to back them up. People like you just refuse to accept the reality of the issue.
You either have justified the violence Trayvon initiated or have some other agenda, either case, what you are doing is wrong.
