Why Obama decided to speak out
By Justin Sink - 07/19/13 03:57 PM ET
President Obama informed his senior staff Thursday that he wanted to address the Trayvon Martin verdict after having “several conversations with his family and friends,” according to a White House official.
The president felt it was “important that he make remarks so the country could hear from him in a broader context,” the official said, adding the president had been “watching the reaction around the country and in the African-American community.”
Obama on Friday said it was important to consider the death of the Florida teen and the reaction to the acquittal of his shooter, George Zimmerman, within the context of American race relations.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall during PBO’s convo with his family and friends! And I bet it happened during and after JurorB37′s interview!
PBO: Hol’ up! Did this bish just say what I think she said?
FLOTUS: Mmm, hmmm
Valerie Jarrett: This heffa done lost. her. damn. mind.
Holder: I’m taking notes and errthang! Bish done fukked up!
PBO: See, I was trying to be diplomatic, but these 2520s are out of pocket!
Malia: Uh oh, Dad’s got that look in his eye again.
Sasha: Yep. This won’t end well.
They are just like us! I know they were cursing up a storm watching that interview!
And you know he had a private conversation that was very serious and deep with Mama Robinson…and that was the conversation that really had him walking into the daily press briefing unannounced and preaching that sermon today.

Mary Mary join Stevie Wonder in boycotting Florida
by Lilly Workneh | July 19, 2013 at 4:29 PM
Mary Mary are the latest stars to boycott the state of Florida for their controversial Stand Your Ground Law.
The gospel duo made the announcement days after a Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin.
Although Stand Your Ground was arguably not applied during the trial, concerns were raised by many observers who believed it was linked to Zimmerman’s actions against Martin.
“We will Stand with Stevie Wonder & Boycott Florida until the Stand Your Ground Law is changed! We love our fans but we MUST do something!!” the duo announced on Twitter on Thursday.

This is great! They are HUGE in the gospel industry.
Tracy Martin @BTraymartin9
I am very pleased with all of the love and support that you all have shown us during our trials and tribulations GOD bless and stay strong
Says he beats himself up + relives the murder every day.
I think the reason there is so much vitriol and vile things said about Trayvon is because of Tracy. Why? Because here is a black man who loved his son dearly, one of the most memorable pics of Trayvon is the one with his dad with his arm around him kissing him…its a picture that destroys the stereotype of the absentee black dad. What has the public seen? Has it been some crazed black man ranting and raving and cussing? No…they are forced to see a grieving father. A man who has shown nothing but the strength and grace of God. Even the stereotype of the black Mom and Black dad that just can’t get along has been shown to be not true. Guess what? Some black parents that aren’t together can get along…imagine that. I will never forget hearing Sybrina say that she was so grateful for Tracy because she could do nothing but stay in bed and cry while Tracy planned Trayvon’s funeral. I will never forget them sitting there holding hands as they saw the charges being read. They have been everything we are told we are NOT. They have shown courage through their pain. Black people are so routinely shown as nothing but animals with no humanity that I believe the reason for so much hatred for them and Trayvon is because of that very reason. These racists and their media handlers are upset they have to see black people being what they can’t be….HUMAN.
I also think when that racist lawyer couldn’t egg on Tracy…that got to them too
We’re supposed to brute and soulless..especially black men. Tracy has made them extremely uncomfortable and they’ve been lashing out because of it.
You are telling the truth. Someone’s twitter page, one of those RWNJ twits was trying to decipher the tattoo on Tracy Martin’s neck. They were trying to say it was gang-related. It is sad really.
POU just been showing out this week — Dropping knowledge and speaking TRUTH!!!
MIRANDA, this is so on point! You put into words what I haven’t been able to. THIS IS IT!!!
[Sybrina and Tracy] have shown courage through their pain. Black people are so routinely shown as nothing but animals with no humanity that I believe the reason for so much hatred for them and Trayvon is because of that very reason. These racists and their media handlers are upset they have to see black people being what they can’t be….HUMAN.

Lima: Where the pallbearers are black
LIMA, Peru (AP) — Elegant in tuxedos and white gloves, the six black pallbearers silently and gracefully remove the mahogany coffin bearing a Lima tire magnate from his mansion. They slide it into the Cadillac hearse that will parade Jorge Reyna’s body through the Chorrillos district where he was once mayor.
The pallbearers are in the job precisely because of the color of their skin, a phenomenon unique to this South American capital that was the regional seat of Spain’s colonial empire for more than three centuries. In fact, prominent citizens such as Reyna, a widely respected, charitable man of indigenous origin who died at age 82, request black pallbearers for their funerals.

I believe we should boycott Salon and encourage all our twitter fam to spread the word and do the same…this is why – read this and never link to Salon again until Rich Benjamin is gone and Salon apologizes for this.
“Some of us have an Inner Child. Others have an Inner Nigger. Is Holder the president’s conscience? Or his Inner Nigger?”
Are you kidding me??? This author has the nerve to criticize PBO’s remarks today, saying they weren’t strong enough, while at the same time he called AG Holder a “nigger” for “speaking truth to power”? WTF??
Salon thinks they can get away with this because Rich Benjamin is Black. Here’s his Twitter: http://twitter.com/RichBenjaminUSA
We have to push this…he needs to be gone and Salon needs to apologize. His black skin is not cover for this shit.
That’s why they did it, thinking because he’s black there will be no push back.
His stupid ass trying to get a come up by writing something so inflammatory. He wants shine and props from white liberals…dumb ass fool.
WTF! You don’t have worry I never go there or link to it.
Cooning for a come-up.
this is also about the time Stupefyin Joan appears and calms the racial tension by Miss Anne-ing black folk.
Haven’t read it in I can’t even remember how long. Most “liberal” online pubs at this point are a joke.
I went to Salon and read the comments long enough to see this. I WILL NOT waste my time there anymore. Dude said everything that I needed to say.
F–K Salon39 minutes ago: SALON editors, you have lost your MOTHERFUCKIN’ minds. If I want to read anyone calling me, the President, or anyone else the N-word, I will go visit STORMFRONT. Get a fucking clue and go hire some class from another worthwhile publication. You have just lost all credibility as journalists.
Joan will make the rounds next week. I’d like to see her on MH-P tomorrow. I still remember “We don’t hang together” smack down.

– — -Republican North Carolina Voter ID Law Targets Students For Disenfranchisement — -
– — North Carolina’s Republican proposed voter ID law targets Democratic voting minorities, and the poor, but it also directly goes after the state’s university students who have heavily supported Obama.
According to The Charlotte Observer, the state senate’s version of the voter ID bill doesn’t allow student ID to be used for voting, “The new measure would require voters to show one of seven types of photo identification issued by the government, such as driver’s licenses, passports, non-driver IDs and military or veteran cards. It eliminates about half the types of photo identification allowed under the House version, including cards from UNC system colleges, state community colleges, local governments, private employers and law enforcement agencies. The bill would take full effect in the 2016 elections.”
State House Speaker Thom Tillis admitted in March that voter fraud isn’t the reason why Republicans are pushing this bill. Tillis tol MSNBC, “There is some evidence of voter fraud, but that’s not the primary reason for doing this. We call this restoring confidence in government,” Tillis said. “There are a lot of people who are just concerned with the potential risk of fraud.” — WHA’?????

I won’t post the link cause the site is garbage. But Salon wrote a horrible hatin’ ass article this evening attacking POTUS’s remarks. It sounds like something Tavis or Cornel could have written.
But that’s not even the worst of it. The article refers to Attorney General Holder as President Obama’s “Inner nigger”.
That white liberal racism is real as hell, yall. It’s real.
My understanding is the writer is black, so while white liberal racism is real, self-hatred is a mofo.
He’s their pet just like TNC. They do the dirtiest work for white liberals. They know they couldn’t get away with blaming Trayvon for his own death or calling Eric Holder a nigger, so they let they employ their pet negros to do that stuff.
Oh yeah. It doesn’t matter what this man does or says because he will continue to be
Really get tired of this “PBO is a moderate republican” bullshit. Ignores history and context.
True ! There were some great moderate and liberal republicans back in the day who supported Civil rights, investments in education, advancements in health care, and science.
But the fact that the guy called Obama a conservative showed that he was out of his mind.
Oh I posted this below and when I first saw it, I blasted twitter because I was mad as hell. Once I sent it to ABL and Elon it spread quite rapidly so hopefully we can encourage a boycott of the site.
Thanks…..we can use this to better spread the word on how sickening Salon is for this shit.
Just look at this clown:
What black person doesnt understand duality/double consciousness? Legit Q: Does Holder embody PBOs complex double consciousness? @Salon
Does this numbnut really think he can psuedo-intellect his way outta this?
Oh, it is real and they are desperate to discredit Obama. White liberals loooooove co-opting the struggles of people of color so they can wrap themselves in our pain and play a perverted game of dress up where they get to play-act oppression. They fell in love with the “Obama drones poor brown people” meme because it allowed them to play white knights to coloreds (they don’t really give a fuck about those people) and it allowed them to practice their favorite activity of attacking Obama in the name of moral righeousness at the same time. Welp, here comes the Trayvon Martin verdict in which racial oppression comes barreling forth in the form of the legal system’s belief in the worthlessness of black life. Black people are outraged and take to the streets to protest and hold vigils (things that, strangely enough, those white liberals never got around to doing in the name of those droned brown folk they love so much) and generally dominate the conversation about the verdict. Well now, we can’t have blacks taking ownership over the conversation about our oppression! That’s the job for the kindly white liberal who speaks of our pain for us so we don’t have to worry our wooly little heads about speaking for ourselves. After all, only they have the proper objectivity to judge the situation properly while we get bogged down in emotion. So white liberals attempt to take over the conversation by questioning why Obama hasn’t issued a statement. Then President Obama issues a statement. Then they say it’s not good enough. Black people say shut the hell up. Then they send their pet negros out to say it’s not good enough. Black people say shut the hell up. Then, they decide on a new tactic: using Trayvon’s death to shame President Obama for droning deaths. Black people threaten to cut a switch. Then President Obama holds a press conference and TELLS WHITE AMERICA THE TRUTH ABOUT ITSELF and all manner of white folk proceed to lose it. For white liberal Salon, this ‘losing it’ takes the form of hiring a coon de jeur to call Eric Holder and President Obama ‘niggers’. Like racist whites since time immemorial, they want to put two black men in their place, period. It’s disgusting.
this is righteous.

Black people threaten to cut a switch

Good evening, Fam:
Just listened to PBO’s outstanding remarks about Trayvon Martin and the real ‘state of the state’. I have run out of superlatives to talk about President Obama… think I’ll borrow gn’s phrase: he is the best president I have ever witnessed.
Sagittarius, I agree! And I have seen ten of them.
Donna Brazile’s new profile pic:
Why Did the Jury NEVER see Trayvon Martin as a CHILD?
White people are “kids” until their mid-30s…black people are fully grown at around 7 or 8.
oh but you forget that Zimmerman called the police on a 7 year old black boy so black people are grown before the the age of 7.
I’m watching the AC360 Townhall and Angela Corey is full of shit.
Yeah, I’m seeing people ready to jump through the screen on Corey. I knew she was bullshit a long time ago.

Sirota’s back-pedaling furiously now, trying to explain to angry ppl why he’s been stoking fires tonight. @Salon #wecanreadtimelinesthough
When I said publish more voices of color, this wasn’t what I had in mind, @Salon.
Wow. And @Salon–do you guys not have editors? What editor in their right mind sees “Inner Nigger” and thinks “Publish this ASAP.”
Barack and Trayvon
By CHARLES M. BLOW
Published: July 19, 2013
On Friday President Obama picked at America’s racial wound, and it bled a bit.
Despite persistent attempts by some to divest the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman tragedy of its racial resonance, the president refused to allow it.
During a press briefing, Mr. Obama spoke of the case, soberly and deliberately, in an achingly personal tone, saying: “You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.”
With that statement, an exalted black man found kinship with a buried black boy, the two inextricably linked by inescapable biases, one expressing the pains and peril of living behind the veil of his brown skin while the other no longer could.

– — -Mitch McConnell’s fractured Senate GOP caucus —
– — -The once-united Senate Republican Conference is splintering.
On issues ranging from gun control to immigration to President Barack Obama’s nominees, Senate Republicans are now split into three major factions: the leadership; hard-line conservatives; and a bloc led by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) doesn’t face nearly the same threat from his members as Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who was almost toppled in January by tea party inspired GOP lawmakers.
Yet it’s clear that McConnell — who along with Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), faces a costly reelection campaign in 2014 — is spending more time than ever juggling the competing interests of his rank-and-file, while having to fight with Obama and the Democrats. And the GOP discord may jeopardize the party’s leverage in the fall over key issues like the debt-ceiling hike and government spending. —

Tell me about the time you spent with white separatists in Idaho.
I just stumbled upon it. There’s a religious sect called Christian
Identity, which is a religious arm of the Aryan Nations. When I was in northern Idaho, I sat in on a three-day retreat and had some fascinating conversations. It was just a bizarre experience.
You, a black man, sat in on a white-separatist retreat. How did that go over?
They were curious and shocked they had found a black man on their premises. A lot of the members of the church took pains to explain to me the difference between white supremacy and white separatism. They said, “We don’t think we’re better than you; we just want to be separate from you.”

– — – – -President Barack Obama is monitoring Detroit’s municipal bankruptcy, a White House spokeswoman said Thursday, but has not committed any federal help for the beleaguered city.
“The president and members of the president’s senior team continue to closely monitor the situation in Detroit,” spokeswoman Amy Brundage said Thursday. “While leaders on the ground in Michigan and the city’s creditors understand that they must find a solution to Detroit’s serious financial challenge, we remain committed to continuing our strong partnership with Detroit as it works to recover and revitalize and maintain its status as one of America’s great cities.”
The tepid reaction Thursday comes after saving the Detroit auto
industry was a central feature of Obama’s re-election campaign –when Democrats savaged Republican Mitt Romney for a New York Times op-ed headlined “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.”
