President Obama as Trayvon Martin

The fact that Obama could have been Trayvon doesn't exonerate Trayvon, it condemns Obama.
-- Soopermexican

The President honors Trayvon Martin the only way he knows how—by making it about himself.
-- Lyndsey Fifield




Could President Obama really have been Trayvon Martin? Of all the young dead men and children in this country how similar has the President's life been to them? How similar has yours been?

What circumstances lead to these tragedies? How much free will?


More than anything else this appears to be a martyrdom for Trayvon Martin.  Certainly there is no harm in mourning his death but I can see no gain to anyone for invoking his name at the exclusion of every other dead son or daughter, mourned by parents, relatives, and other loved ones.
