Obama, I’m feeling secondhand embarrassment for you right now. This isn’t the time to play the devils advocate or toe the line, so disappointed.
Edit: the difference between the press conference now and the one he had for Newton is frustrating me so much. He literally just brought up the fact that black men commit crime and that law enforcement has a tough job. WTF???
I was hoping he would follow that up with something like, “But they aren’t any more likely to break the law than men of any other race, and in this instance, no laws were broken. But even when a black man does break the law, that doesn’t justify gunning him down in the street.”
And then he just told people to quit looting and ended the press conference and I was like what the entire fuck.
