    That’s a sad statement to make. It’s pathetic on so many levels and so true an says a lot on how much our country has changed just in my voting lifetime

    So sad that the President of the United States would make such a statement. The president continually trades on his black side, but hey folks, he's half white. I truly believe Barrack Obama would be ecstatic if riots broke out nationwide. National statistics don't back up his rhetoric.

    What a narcissist!!!!!!!!!! Does this president do anything BUT travel from place to place flapping his gums, and stick his nose in where it does not belong?? He should have a teleprompter implant because without a teleprompter the Pres is totally lost!
    What is wrong with Al Sharpton? He looks BAD, and Jesse Jackson seems to be suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's. Our once great black leaders are showing their age, and who is going to step into their shoes?

    Anything to keep the fire burning. Between Obama, Sharpton and Jackson they will make sure to keep the race card going and going on this deal. The FBI investigation says this was NOT racial violence. The media tries to make Martin out as an alter boy when in fact, he was just another street punk that made the mistake of attacking someone that was able to defend himself.
