Brooke and her panel discuss President Obama's role in the conversation on race in the U.S. following the George Zimmerman acquittal.
Brooke has to stop cutting off and getting defensive with Emily Miller who is expressing what most think. Travon was not killed for being black..he was killed for jumping Zimmerman and beating the crap out of him. Stop reacting defensively to the point of view that the media is playing up ":racist America" to fit a narrative. Respect your guest even if you disagree. Only 34% disagree with Zimmerman verdict and it was about self-defense, not skittles. Where are the stories and mobs attacking hispanics in Baltimore and Hollywood?
We elected and re-elected a black president, for goodness sake.
The president needs to stay out of this. He is just making it much worse than it should be. this whole thing is so far out of perspective. But of course this incident has taken on a life of its own because the activits want it to. I am sick of it.
I am 73 year old white woman. Listened to Don Lemon on CNN Sirius short while ago eloquently expressing his perspective as a black man with an idiot (obviously white) re: the white woman/black man fear issue How dare ANY person contribute unless they are black. No one other than a black person knows what they have lived. You MUST be black to know. I now live in Mississippi and live with outrageous prejudice toward blacks. Hope I live long enough to see an awakening among the whites and their attitudes.
