President Obama’s Speech on Trayvon Martin
I’m not going to say too much, because I honestly believe that it’s more important that people listen to Obama’s speech.
The video, which you can view below, shows Obama as raw as we’ve ever seen him. It was a point of pride for many, as our president navigated the topic of race with a delicacy and grace that was pretty amazing to watch, especially in light of recent events.
While some people may think that the President pointed fingers or took sides, I think he was very strategic in his response and balanced in his acknowledgement of the situation and the challenges that we face as a country.
