Unequal Pandering

The Jawa Report lands a torpedo under the stacks regarding President Obama weighing in on the Zimmerman/Martin incident in Florida:


Obama said he supported the investigations, noting: “If I had son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

[A White House Mouthpiece] said Obama “was speaking powerfully about this as a parent.” [He] added that “no matter gender or race, this is a tragedy.”


That does make sense. It was very similar to comments President Obama made about Allen Coon, the white 13-year-old who was set on fire by two black classmates [On Feb 28, 2012 -- Strat]. Obama said then, “If I had a son, he’d look like Allen.”

Oh wait, Obama didn’t say anything about Allen. My bad.
