Message Subject Obama Speaking AGAIN about Trayvon Martin Shooting at Suprise Appearance at a WH Press Conference
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Obama addressed Trayvon Martin's death at a surprise WH briefing press conference.

The main points of Obama's remarks were as follows:

Obama sends his thoughts and prayers to Trayvon Martin's family.

When Martin was first shot he said this could have been his son.

The African-American Community is looking at this issue with a set of experiences.

It is true that young African American males tend to be more violent than their counterparts.

It is also true that African-American men are disproportionately victims of violence.

Folks understand the challenges that exist for African-American boys.

Traditionally, these issues are handled by state and local governments.

Violent protests dishonor what happened to martin and his family.

State and local laws need to be examined to see if they encourage altercations like what happened in the Trayvon Martin case.

Would martin have been justified to shoot Mr. Zimmerman given the circumstances? If the answer is yes or at least ambiguous, we need to re-examine our laws.

Establishment of some brand new federal program may not be what is appropriate here.

But it is important to make African-American young men feel better about their futures.

It is important for all of us to do some soul-searching.

Fial thought: As difficult as this incident was, I don't want us to lose sight of the fact that with each generation race-relations are improving in this country.

We have to be vigilant and work on these issues. We must not use these incidents to heighten racial tensions. We must remember that we are doing better than our parents or grandparents.
