    Will Obama say "Christopher Lane could have been me"?

    Three kids, a black Black, a black Hispanic, and a black White are arrested for shooting white Australian, Christopher Lane in the back while he was jogging.  Should Obama, a black White, be obligated to say that Lane could have been him?

    I was thinking the same thing.  But I will bet my left thumb that he doesn't make it anywhere near the political football that he did in the Martin/Zimmerman case, if he even bothers to comment.  And Sharpton along with Jackson will be no place to be found.  I don't know why anyone would be shocked anymore.  The double standard as become so blatant and apparent, that nobody pays it much mind anymore.

      I agree, I don't think Obama's going to say anything as personalized as in the Martin-Zimmerman case, the victim in this case is white.

      My guess is he doesn't even discuss it.  Nor do the race baiters like Jackson and Sharpton.  They only care about civil rights for some people, not others.  Harry Reid will probably blame the sequester.

      LandmarkWealth, I'm waiting for a Youtube videomaker to blame it on.

    I believe you already know the answer to your question.  Heck no, he won't even mention this because it would do nothing for him politically.  All of the black on black murders in Chicago are rarely if ever mentioned by Obama or the Media.

    Sharpton and Jackson won't touch this one either.  Unless of course they can find a way to turn it around and blame Christopher Lane for the shooting.

      Jackson did make a tweet.  He "frowned upon" such "senseless violence".  Three black kids murdering a white man for fun is frowned upon but wasn't worth leading a march for justice.

      "Frowned upon?"  That could win the understatement of the year award.

      Yeah, who knew that Jesse Jackson could even make an understatement?

    It is quite obvious to even the most delirious admirers that he will never make such a statement. This would never support his agenda to divide the nation so that he can continue to blame others for his ineptness.
    Besides, he must keep his socialist agenda moving forward if he is to be successful in removing the freedoms guaranteed by a document he has called a hindrance to progress in America.  Additionally he stated that the US Constitution is so out-dated, it is a hindrance to governing the country.
    He is not viewed as a black white, because he is a liberal socialist bent on destroying the greatest nation on the earth.  He only uses his black heritage to sway other socialists to support his attack on the American Dream.  This is easily viewed when researching the scandals he has called "phony".
    The tragedy is that when dissecting his persona, one would presume it would indicate he would more closely resemble one of the three assailants in this case.
