“White African” Pres. Obama speaks out on Zimmerman acquittal

 

Think we will ever see that in the New York Times? “White Hispanic” indeed. A honest conversation about race means that when the newspaper of record sets a racial narrative because one of a person’s parents is “white” while the other parent is not, then why does not that same newspaper of record treat Mr. “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon” the same way? President Obama has a “white” mother; Mr. Zimmerman has a “white” father. Pres. Obama’s father was African; Mr. Zimmerman’s mother is Hispanic. An honest conversation about race means that honest commentary on hypocrisy isn’t stifled. It is a shame when cowards on either side of the political spectrum silence or refuse to have an honest conversation because of misguided political correctness.
