Obama Betrayed Young Black Males

 

Holder and Obama


In his speech Obama said:

” …When I think about this boy [Trayvon Martin], I think about my own kids and I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this and that everybody pulls together, federal, state and local, to find out exactly how this tragedy happened … My main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon. And I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness that it deserves and that we’re gonna get to the bottom of what happened.” (Bold added.)

Did Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder keep their word? NO! Hold them accountable. Call them on the carpet for allowing this murder cover-up. This may be your last chance to obtain far reaching justice for a long time to come! The facts show that Trayvon Martin’s killing was unprovoked and a first degree murder.

This is the purest case of racial injustice given that Trayvon Martin was innocent and did not attack Zimmerman. Also read Trayvon Martin’s Horrific Last Night Alive.

Obama and Holder are among the first for African Americans in the government positions they hold. My great disappointment is that they turned their backs on Trayvon Martin, black males, black people, and America as a whole. Why do I say this? These two men had one of the greatest opportunities to bring America to greater equality and racial justice and they turned their backs on that opportunity. This is where my issue lies.

Why did they turn their backs on this opportunity and on moving America closer to a model country for others to follow? I am sure the answers will be plenty and varied. One reason is institutional racism and their fear of troubling the waters as it could mean career suicide along with ending their power and privilege. Are Obama’s and Holder’s careers, power, and privilege more important than obtaining justice for young black males and blacks in general? I say hell no! What do you say?

Hold them accountable. Call them on the carpet for allowing this murder cover-up. This may be your last chance to obtain far reaching justice for a long time to come!

Obama and Holder have a multitude of resources available to find out what happened to Trayvon Martin. If I could find out what happened with the very few resources I had, I knew they could find out. This is how I know they failed all of us. They failed all black children and their parents, and they failed all of the citizens of the United States.

Hold them accountable. Call them on the carpet for allowing this murder cover-up. This may be your last chance to obtain far reaching justice for a long time to come!

As a result, their refusal to bring justice for Trayvon Martin was a condemnation on all black males! It was like black males were in the water drowning and calling out to Obama and Holder in a boat to come and rescue them, but Obama and Holder paddled right past them knock them in the head with the boat paddles as they hurried by. Is this acceptable to you? It certainly is not acceptable to me.

Hold them accountable. Call them on the carpet for allowing this murder cover-up. This may be your last chance to obtain far reaching justice for a long time to come!

Holder and Obama gave their word that they would get to the truth and insure justice is served. The State of Florida and Sanford, where Trayvon was murdered, have a long history of racism and it continues this very day. Obama and Holder are well aware of this and the institutional racism. Being black men in such positions of power and having the ability to make a difference for the better made them responsible for insuring justice was achieved for Trayvon Martin, improving racial justice for all black males, and moving America to greater equality.

Hold them accountable. Call them on the carpet for allowing this murder cover-up. This may be your last chance to obtain far reaching justice for a long time to come!
