His whole speech was very racially neutral (he never used the word 'white'), but he made sure to note that there are black criminals....you're right...and there are also WHITE criminals. A white criminal is what caused this shiet.

Obama said the same type of thing he said the last press conference (womp womp)

And for the people wondering where bey and jay are I really don't think we need another selfie or hand written note (that's all I expect from them)

Yes, please stop requesting they speak out..It's for the best they don't.

And yeah, KFoxx..it sounded like he didn't know how to properly address the issue and didn't want to isolate yt people who won't like him no matter what he says...  He ain't say shyt in our favor yet fox is already working on spinning it.  I understand he can't jeopardize the case by expressing his views on the matter..but there are other things can address.  The whole time he was talking, it seemed as though he was over it and just awaiting 2016..

he was very neutral. like a msnbc analyst noted, big difference from his reaction to this & trayvon's.

i'm so tired of people focusing on the looting. did I miss something on twitter? (because that's who i trust anyway). some groups tried to loot the other night but residents defended and stood in front of business. and last night mcdonalds was broken into in order to get milk for the protestors who had been bombed with tear gas. has there been burned buildings or something i'm missing?

and the part about black men committing crimes. what in the entire .

his speech is only going to further fuel american's opinions for darren wilson and against michael brown. they're going to say "look..even the BLACK president knows what it is."

President age 30 years . You check out the Moustache ? The man left his vacation . I can tell by the man hoarse voice smoking is in the vacation plans . I wish he said more , but I will wait again before I change my views . The man is tired. I wish President stop talking after speaking on how many men of color are locked up and killed . Do your children ask you or hubby questions about Ferguson ? TIA

The whole thing came off like it wasn't any part of any conversation he's been having outside of the press.

The one thing I can say is that his administration is currently investigating the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager at the hands of a white police officer.  That's pretty much a buried lead, very unusual and unprecedented.  I hope they took this step because they saw that statement, the autopsy and the witness statements and smelled a big rat.  I didn't realize they were doing more than observing and recording.  They are looking for a crime and this is a federal agency that doesn't waste time or resources on things they find unsubstantial.  

I wish I knew more about this but I think it means that if the DOJ finds probable cause to arrest him he would be taken in to federal custody.

Three white women were broke down on the interstate yesterday and it was hot as phuck. My bf asked if I thought he should help. I looked at them pale h03s and said "bae keep driving". Phuck them. We are expected to treat them better than they have ever treated us. They have no respect for us as human beings. 
i would have helped Confused

I would never get out of my car to help a stranger on the side of the road. I have heard too many nightmare stories of what happens to people who do that.
 
How do you know its not a set up to rob/kill you.....people are crazy nowadays.....

........I would have called 311/911 or whatever the non emergency number is and tell them that there are people in need of assistance on the side of the road while keeping it moving.......


so if this was a sista you would have all told me to keep it moving ?

Oh Obama....brotha is gray he's so neutral. Nice plug for "my brothers keeper" to remind FELLOW BLACKS that he is doing something for us personally. However, since it's induction in February I have yet to hear/read about the impact it's causing and trust me I've been checking. The last I heard is that he is now including Hispanics, Asians, and Native Americans into the mix...basically it's been rendered useless. I am so sick of seeing a Black man as president and waiting with baited breath for him to say something directly for and too his people and always feeling disappointed.
