    Obama and Others at Selma

    I can't believe that someone hasn't posted about this yet. Or maybe there isn't a great big African American presence on this forum. Either way, it's a pretty big media story.

    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Maybe most of us are just past racism and tired fo the BS. WE'll never forget, but it doesn't define us.

    Didn't our president say he was born because of Selma or something equally stupid? I like how the article calls him "America's first black president" too. Did I miss a news story where they discovered that his mother was not white, but really black?

    He is the first Black president. Don't be obtuse.

    That said, this whole "woe is the Black man in the US" thing is getting stale. If Blacks really gave a ****, they would stop killing each other.

    Amazing story and a great anniversary. I'm not American but I would be proud of such of of event, its what makes you great and even more amazing that a black president can enjoy it. Kudos America.

    Let me rephrase that last part "They'd be more pissed at black on black crime then throwing a fit when a thug get's shot for attacking a cop." That's the part that boggles my mind. "Hey 500 blacks were killed in three cities by other blacks, but this kid... he robbed a place and then punched a cop and got shot, let's protest THAT...

    Seriously.

    He is as white as he is black. You could say he is the first president that is half black.
