We all know the answer

July 20, 2013

Dear Sir,

The US President’s rhetorical question: What would have been the reaction if it had been Trayvon Martin with a gun who shot George Zimmerman because he felt threatened for being followed, probably can be answered without ambiguity just as can be the question of Mr Zimmerman’s reaction if Trayvon Martin had been a white teenager. We all know the answer, even if we pretend they are open to doubt. Yours etc.

Obama says black Americans feel pain after the Trayvon Martin verdict because of a 'history that doesn't go away'. Obama spoke in a surprise appearance Friday at the White House, his first time appearing for a statement on the verdict since it was issued last Saturday.
