    Obama was not professional.. no president makes the justice look that bad. Oj didn't get a president make a speech on him. Why don't Obama focuse on our soldiers? He's a big prick

    You know, Barack and all you race-obsessed "activists", we would forget about race and move on if you would just SHUT UP about it already. It just starts to sound like whining after a while.

    I do not believe he is telling the truth. He has never been subjected to this kind of behavior in his life. LIE. To blame it on not being a respectful young man is bull. Unfortunately, color is always the first thing ignorant people see. I have raised two African American sons; both are "respectful young men" as he so put it, in an area that is mostly non-black. I have witnessed my sons being followed in stores; me watching the person doing the watching, a woman pulling her bag tighter as my 13-year-old runs towards me with a box of pop-tarts. Yes, I have seen this and many more negative race inspired actions directed at my straight student athletes. Both NEVER been in trouble with the law or arrested, but because they are continually profiled they subjected to this disrespectful treatment for only one reason; the color of their skin.

    America denies that this behavior exists. Until you experience it, you cannot understand it. Several years ago, there was a show called Black: White that addressed walking in the world as a black person if you were white or a white person if you were black. Before you deny it, try it.

    My husband and sons know what it means to be on the endangered species list because they are black men. We had to teach them how to be men, but more specifically how to be black men; the do’s and don’ts. Do believe things will change, and don’t judge people by their race. Most people are good at heart.

    I agree with West. Obama should be no where involved in this case. There's a thing called the Constitution where there is the dividing of powers. The president has NOTHING to do with the judicial system and vice versa

    West is one of the moral fibers of this country. It's a damn shame most blacks are still on the Government tit. They can't think for themselves and it's been going on for generations. It's so much easier to bitch and complain than actually take responsibility for your like.

    West is so right. This should not be about race, and Obama sure as hell shouldn't be commenting and trying to make this personal to him. My husband is black and is disgusted at how the media has dealt with this and riled up everyone's emotions, pitting people against each other, to make this about race. It was a very unfortunate situation but it is not about race.
