President Barack Obama weighed into the controversial killing of a black teenager in Florida in very personal terms on Friday, comparing the boy to a son he doesn't have and calling for American "soul searching" over how the incident occurred.
Alright, first off, why is it necessary for Americans to do “soul searching” because a white community volunteer killed a black teenager? Black teenagers kill each other all the time, are they less important or is it worse that the shooter was white? I won’t get into the lack of presidential racial introspection about black on white crime, all too boring, a more natural state of affairs I suppose.
Has anyone asked the obvious question in why was a community watch necessary in that neighborhood?
Rather than soul searching let’s start with searching for the absent fathers in these black communities. Let’s search the government programs that support and enable and normalize broken black families, the root cause of the disproportionate level of black crime.
