Newt Gingrich said that President Obama was disgraceful in making the Travyon Martin case a racial one. Rick Santorum also criticized Obama for the same reason. Tamron Hall discussed the implications of their statements.
WTF? its the truth.. these white people i tell you>>>
white ppl really?
I am white and i think what zimmerman did to this young man was wrong on every possible level , so please lets not make this a race thing ok
SMH…you sound so naive….when Tray’s life was taken at that point the “race” matter came into play.
My dear, dear white person, it has already been a race thing the day we entered this nation! And your ancestors and present day family have stood idly by and watched as we have been killed violently by white police officers and the like. So we all know it’s not your fault, but what are you really doing about it except being upset!?
I understand what u are sayn, Z’man is wrong on every level, I think the way the officers handle the case made it a race issue…I think that white ppl dont understand the depths that black ppl go thru to survive in the Americas, its alot of mental challenges as well as physical racism we undergo. Tho some of u are naive n nice, it doesnt change the reality that racism still exist among the rest of u ppl, but clearly any person can see Z’man needs to be arrested
It is race issue, am sorry that your white and you will never truley understand how it feels and wht it means to be black in america…so dont wiegh in on how you think we should react when injustice is done to one of ‘us” !!
house negro.might be paid some dosh.
How can you criticize a true statement? #RIPTrayvon
Position doesn’t give you power nor does it acquit you from criticism, it simply gives you a platform for your thoughts, words, and opinions to be heard! He may be the President but he is first a man, and has the same rights under the laws, constitution, and declaration of independence as every American…He to can speak freely! Like it or not, agree or not!
Apparently they don’t watch the news, race was already an issue.
Tourre is an idiot and shouldn’t speak on the issue. He made an insensitive comment about Martin’s death. GOOGLE IT!
What did he say?
When Trayvon’s life was taken it was at that point, the case became a “racial” issue.
People are so dumb to believe that this isn’t a racial issue…that’s just how naive the system has created us to be. We are so desensitized by the foolish behavior of racist, that we often turn away from it’s rage or we just don’t care, or better still, we condone it! Absolutely, it’s not all white people, we as blacks americans get that! But, in your little circles and personal lives, what kind of a difference are you making with the racial divide? Just dating the opposite race will not solve this. Just living next door, or socially mingling; it’s going to take discussion on the hard issues and a lot of people acknowledging the fact that they are racist because…you finish that! We are so afraid to talk about the elephant in the room. But quite frankly, each time the majority of white people look at black people, they never see past the skin, and begin to attach what they see to a belief that was instilled in them through whatever medium (TV, newspaper, wrong relationships, etc.). White people know that they have enjoyed privilege and the fact of never being treated as unfairly as any other culture because of their skin color and that alone makes you responsible to make a difference. Not asking you to feel sorry, we don’t need anybody’s pity. But feel something, other than proud of yourselves!
It’s been a racial thang and it will neva eva go away until judgement day!!!
