    George Zimmerman accuses Obama of inflaming racial tensions

    George Zimmerman accuses Obama over racial tensions - CNN.com


    Dereliction of duty'
    In the new video, Zimmerman claims it was Obama who stoked racial tensions surrounding the case.

    He cites the President's remarks in March 2012, when the case was still being investigated, in which Obama said, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon."

    "To me, that was clearly a dereliction of duty, pitting Americans against each other solely based on race," Zimmerman says in the conversation with his lawyer Howard Iken, who does not appear on camera.

    Zimmerman notes that Obama's press secretary at the time, Jay Carney, had said previously that the White House would not wade into the case, calling it "a local law-enforcement matter."

    Asked if he felt there was one government agency or official who brought the most unfairness to his situation, Zimmerman is quick to respond.

    "By far, the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama," he says.
    I'm thinking on how to word what I think about this.

    He needs to shut the fuck up. He got away with murder.

    I always thought that was a stupid thing to say though. Lol why would his son look like Trayvon? Does he think all black boys look like they could be his son? They shared zero similar features. It was just an odd statement.

    No sympathy for Zimmerman. Trying to get his name in the news again I guess.

    I remember when Obama said that and I always thought he meant a possible son would "look like Trayvon" in the sense that people might see "oooh a young black guy in a hoodie ooh scary!!" kinda way, that people were talking about back then. And not necessarily that he would look like Trayvon in terms of features. It seemed kind of like an elegant point but maybe I'm giving Obama too much credit.

    Never mind taking responsibility for your own actions.

    Thanks, Obama.

    Or it might've been you shooting an unarmed teenager, but why take responsibility for your own actions when you can blame the President!

    I can understand the sentiment behind it, I just still thought it was an odd thing to say.
