Obama Cites Crime Of Walking While Black (Like Brown)

From the Washington Times:

Obama says Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson ‘stains the heart of black children’

By Dave Boyer | September 28, 2014

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.”

Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood.

“In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law enforcement — guilty of walking while black or driving while black, judged by stereotypes that fuel fear and resentment and hopelessness.”…

Perhaps if blacks committed fewer crimes they wouldn’t be targeted so.

But, lest we forget, Mr. Brown wasn’t ‘guilty of walking while being black.’ He was guilty of robbing a convenience store while being black. And he was probably guilty of attacking a police officer while being black.

[Obama] added, “We have to close the justice gap — how justice is applied, but also how it is perceived, how it is experienced. That’s what we saw in Ferguson this summer when Michael Brown was killed and the community was divided.”

So the police officer should have been willing to sacrifice himself to keep the community from being divided? Has the recent shootings of two white police officers by blacks brought the community back together?

Mr. Obama said there are “significant racial disparities” in the criminal justice system “in everything from enforcing drug policy to applying the death penalty to pulling people over.”

In other words, Obama is still pushing for racial quotas for prisons. What could go wrong with that?

“That has a corrosive effect,” the president said. “The worst part of it is, it scars the hearts of our children. It scars the hearts of white children who grow unnecessarily fearful of somebody who doesn’t look like them.

So enforcing our laws and applying the death penalty makes white kids fear blacks? Who knew?

It stains the heart of black children who feel as if no matter what he does, he’ll always be under suspicion.

Even if that were true, how could the justice system change that? Doesn’t that need to start with blacks committing fewer crimes?

That is not the society we want, it is not the society our children deserve.”

The president said he will announce this week a program to address issues that impact youths, called My Brother’s Keeper Community Challenge. It will expand on an initiative he unveiled in February by calling on community leaders across the country to “follow the evidence” in helping young black men succeed.

What a racist and sexist program. Besides, won’t it make black men feel inferior to be told they need special help from the government to succeed? Won’t that ‘stain their hearts’?

Mr. Obama also urged the audience members to get out and vote in the November midterm elections. “Cynicism is a choice, but hope is a better choice,” he said. “Get those souls to the polls. If we do, I guarantee we’ve got a brighter future ahead.”

Because voting for more Democrats and more welfare will put an end to the problems of the black community. Look at how well that has worked so far.
