The President's statement was pure racism.
We also know that although Zimmerman and his family too both had to move out of their houses due to death threats and the President and his Justice Department are perfectly agreeable to death threats against them.
To use your example, if both Martin and Zimmerman were African-American, do you think the President or anyone would give a damn?
This is the ultimate playing the race card and racism by the President and the media.
What matters most to me in individual freedom and equality in relation to the government. Accordingly, I just switched from going to vote for Obama because of rights Republicans want to take away - but now would vote for any of the Republicans, even Ron Paul, over Obama.
A racist president deliberately putting someone in an unfair trial situation risking him being imprisoned or even executed because we have a racist president playing race politics is 100% outrageous - and no greater denial of equality and justice possible. But, then, come to think of it, he's the president that took to himself the power to order any American summarily assasinated if determined an enemy of the state. He declared Zimmerman an enemy of his race.
