I think most of us have been following the story of the killing of Trayvon Martin. Here is what the president said:
"PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I can only imagine what these parents are going through. And when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids.
You know, if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon. And, you know, I think they are right to expect that all of us, as Americans, are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves and that we're going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened."
Do you think the President should be weighing in on this incident? Why or why not?
Some believe he commented only because it is an election year and he's doing it to secure more votes from blacks. What are your thoughts on that belief?
