It isn't fucking 'normal.' It did happen and those involved will be punished. Why are people trying to insinuate any part of society finds this acceptable?

I posted on another thread that while in office, he said in a NYT article on April 18, 2015, that the problems go far beyond the police who he said are too often deployed to do the dirty work of containing the problems that arise in broken urban communities where fathers are absent, drugs dominate and education, jobs and opportunities are non-non-existent. Now this after he had 8 years to do something. The article states his administration had come under fire lots for not doing more in this arena. Minority employment was sky high, at record levels under Trump before the pandemic hit. At least he did something for minorities.

Huh. In a NYT article on April 18, 2015, he said there was no excuse for riots, and said police officers have a tough job and we need to keep that in mind. He also said that the problems are beyond the police who end up doing the dirty work of containing the problems that arise in broken urban communities where fathers are absent, drugs dominate and education, jobs and opportunities are non- existent. His administration came under constant criticism for not doing more about it. Now that Trump is in there, when record employment was the highest for minorities, he comes out with this? Something seems off.

Why is anyone taking advise from a man who stabbed the American people in the back, lied to us, mobilized the federal law enforcement agencies against political rivals, sold guns to Mexican cartels that were used to kill Americans, locked illegals in cages, drone bombed more people than any other in history, failed us and did nothing to prevent 68 million Americans to be infected with H1N1, flew billions to the Iranians and set a path for nuclear weapons for them, supervised the most corrupt adminstration in history, did nothing for minorities while in office, got on air and fanned the flames of racial wars during the fake news propaganda around Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. This guy has no right to talk about racial issues when he failed us all at every turn when in power. Just go to jail already. Edit: On top of all that he conducted a national study into the perceived issue of police racial profiling and the results were clear that no bias existed or at the very least couldn't be proven. He KNOWS the police are not racist yet pushes this garbage propaganda out. He makes me physically ill.

Obama is cheering this race riots on like no other! After all it comes at the perfect moment for him to move focus away from Obamagate. Not that the MSM was doing their job in covering it in the first place!

Unequal treatment in our institutions. Says the black president. Real unequal to be able to achieve the highest political office.

Obama didn't say the act itself was normal so your misrepresenting what he said. The comments on here are sad to read and more sad that you're apologists and in denial.

The new normal is being American and not have everything about race. Youre welcome.

He has a lot of nerve. He had the chance just like Trump to be the modern FDR. in stead they both sold out to the corporate interests. He should just shut up and sit down. All he and Biden did for minority people was deport them and drink a glass of water in Flint.

Every justified protest devolving into looting and violence also should not normal.
