Why is Obama making everything about Race?

His friend a harvard professor was arrested. Obama flipped out on a local police department. Since when is that the presidents job? Then Obama and the professor brought up the fact that the Cop was white and the professor was black. Who cares? Now Obama was saying he was being a little bias since it was his friend. Well thats not his job either! The PD is supposed to handle such things.. Not friends in high places. ugh

  • I agree. I didn't know they were friends, but i did wonder since when did the President get involved in lowly matters such as arrests made by police?

    Doesn't he have more important things to worry about?

  • It's more of his inexperience showing. Coupled with his alliance a person who likes to elevate drama to suit his personal agenda.... Obama opened his mouth when he should not have. It wasn't his place. He could have caused racial tension by his remarks. Next time he needs to shut his mouth before making such an ignorant statement in front of the nation.

  • Because accusing someone of racism in public is the easiest and fastest thing to shut them down. It no longer is about what the police altercation was, it is now about racism. He is constantly playing defense and his methods are weak in nature, but you don't dare question him unless you are prepared to be labeled a racist as well. This is the 'race crutch' or 'race card' we see played so often. I don't find it acceptable for everyday people to use them, I sure as shoot expect better of our so called leaders. If he were a smart man, he would lead by example and let the facts present the case. Instead, we are seeing that he is an entitled little cry baby that throws a tantrum when he doesn't get his way. It's sad, really.

  • There was a black policeman and and Hispanic policeman there as well, They stated they were supporting the officer accused of this. Obama needs better folks to brief him before he sticks his foot in his mouth!

    Sure to the date oblabit will apologise for the horrible Americans on this one too.
    He is always apologising to the enemies, why not apologise to his Harvard buds?
