Yesterday the President shared some of his experiences as a black man and he drew parellels to that of the slain teen Trayvon Martin. Many on the left applauded his candor as he shared some of the things that have happened to him simply because he is a black man. What is interesting is that anytime the president talks about being black in America he is accused by some of race baiting. Is it race baiting to share a truth even if other sperceive that truth to be racist? The president is the leader of the land, but he has a right as the leader to share his own truth. Share your thoughts.
President Obama said he could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago, and he gets accused of race baiting…why?
