We’ve already covered the Zimmerman trial recently, and weren’t planning on revisiting the issue. However, after President Obama came out for his absolutely bizarre 17-minute speech on Trayvon Martin, I can’t let his remarks go unchallenged in this space.
If you missed his address, you can watch it here. My primary criticism is the counter-productiveness of re-injecting race into a topic where race was already determined during the trial to have had no impact whatsoever.
That, and the stark implication from the President of the United States that the jury verdict was completely, 100% wrong.
