First I like to commend President Obama for once again speaking on subject he wishes he did not have to speak on. The president touched on some very key points that are a reality no matter how much certain people like to ignore it. There’s nothing racist about the president commenting on what it is like to be a Black man in America.
Joe Scarborough (Republican) stated earlier this week,
“if you don’t know anyone whose been stopped for driving while black, you have no black friends.”, “it’s that simple…”.
Does the above quote make Scarborough a racist???? Of course not!
So please stop telling me to “move on” or “get over it” because we have a Black president or because slavery was a long time ago.
We remember 9/11 and December 7th (Pearl Harbor) as “a date that will live in infamy” so that we never forget. Would we EVER tell survivors or their families to move on???
I love the United States, including its “warts”. Talking about this nations past and present sins does not make me any less patriotic than any self-proclaimed “Patriot” or Sean Hannity.
So thank you Mr President for saying what you said on a national stage!
From Oscar Grant to Trayvon Martin (and unfortunately many others), there is no room for error when you are Black…
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
