The idiotic war being waged by Republicans goes on and on. President Obama simply reflected a reality when he said that if he had a son, the boy would have been in the same situation as Trayvon Martin. Naturally, the big fat white man named Newt Gingrich completely distorted the meaning of what Obama was saying. “It’s not a question of who that the young man looked like. Any young American of any ethnic background should be safe, period. If the president suggests that if it had been a white who had been shot that would be OK..” Right wing nut case Michelle Malkin asked the ridiculous question: “What does Trayvon’s race have to with this event?”
We have countless studies which clearly show that those of African American background are halted by police at a significantly higher rate than is experienced by white teen boys and girls. Ask any black member of Congress who is male and he will recount events when he was halted and frisked by the police. One out of three black males between the ages of 18-26 has a criminal record. I wonder why?
When will Republicans begin to act like Americans?
