Mar 23 - Obama finally speaks: "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon"

President Obama spoke out for the first time on Friday about the fatal shooting of an unarmed 17-year-old African-American boy named Trayvon Martin, calling it a "tragedy."

"I can only imagine what these parents are going through," Mr. Obama said from the White House Rose Garden, "and when I think about this boy, 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 figure out how this tragedy happened."

Mr. Obama said he is glad the Justice Department is investigating the shooting and that Florida Gov. Rick Scott has formed a task force to investigate the incident as well. The president suggested he was sympathetic to the notion that the shooting was racially motivated.

"You know, if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," Mr. Obama said.

"All of us have to do some soul-searching to figure out how does something like this happen," he continued, "and that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened as well as the specifics of the incident."

Martin was shot in Sanford, Florida nearly a month ago after a confrontation in a gated community with a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman maintains he shot Martin in self-defense, and a Florida self-defense law has so far let Zimmerman remain free. But Martin's girlfriend, who was on the phone with him when it happened, says Zimmerman was the aggressor. Before he shot Martin, Zimmerman called 911 and told an operator an unfamiliar African American was in the neighborhood. The 911 operator told Zimmerman to stop following him.

In spite of the ongoing investigations, outrage over the incident continues to grow.

Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton said on CBS This Morning on Friday that she wants Zimmerman arrested. Thousands of people rallied in Sanford on Thursday to push for his arrest, and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also decried the fact that Zimmerman remains free.

Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida took to the House floor on Wednesday to call for justice for Martin, calling the incident "a classic example of racial profiling quickly followed by murder."

I still dont see how signing a petition can get someone arrested. Further more, I dont see how wearing a hoodie or buying arizonas or skittles helps the cause either.

The Democrats set this whole thing up to divide Americans more and try to get the sympathy votes. The Left owns the airwaves. They don't give a f*k about you, they only want votes. All politicians are blood suckers.

I'm black and I don't give a fu*k if the president is black, white, Hispanic, etc...Its about right and wrong. There are a lot of black people that don't give a fu*k about Obama. Who programmed you to think this way?

@ this comment, especially what you said about Trayvon being just another kid..

Bruh I didn't say all black people before you get mad about nothing.

there are alot of blacks that look for obama to solve issues that relate to black people because they think because obama is black he will look out.

Trayvon is another kid sh*t like this happens all the time and every-now-then the world stops for day or week or month and gives a sh*t about 1/100 kids slain on stupid sh*t.

if the shooter wasnt white noone would care

black kids get k!lled everyday and noone says sh*t
Its bigger than that

This incident and its reactions serve as a microcosm of the entire country.

When people say dumb a.ss sh*t like "if the shooter was white no one would care" i really just lose all hope for this country man, its a fu*kin shame how the vast majority of America is full with fu*kin idiots.

Can you not grasp the concept of why people are outraged?

HE WAS k!llED BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK

you fu*kin idiot

people say "black people k!ll black people everyday why isnt theyre outrage"

1. There is outrage, its just that the majority of white people dont interact in circles where this outrage occurs

2. Black on Black crime is for a variety of reasons no one them being BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK.

3. This sh*t happens way to often, i swear its every 6 month a white person is k!lling a black man BECAUSE HE IS BLACK

Can you not grasp the concept?

Do you understand the difference?

The Shooters race places a large part because this happens to much,
The Reason of the incident is the biggest factor.

Dumb a.ss fu*kin people in this country man

Well why didn't you just say that? You need to be more specific with what you say instead of just saying sh*t..because when you said black people wouldn't care, people in here are gonna think you said all black people. Then when you said Trayvon is just another kid, you're gonna get people in here thinking that you saying he's just another lil n*gga that got k!lled, nothing new..as if its nothing...Like I said, you need to be more specific with what you say...Because the way you said it, you got people thinking that your justifying it..
