Thank you Ray for posting, BUT....

Franky, I wish he would be silent! He has diarrhea of the verbal system IMHO

. . . if he didn't say anything, he would be still be condemned.

This was part of the round of hate/race/gun crime/control/insecurity/reaction/tit-for-tat mechanism that is repeating itself all around the world.

Who has sufficient force to say, no.

He's a great President doing his best & getting blocked from all directions!

I'm glad he spoke out - anyone who thinks racism is not alive and well in this country must live in a closet.
