    Blacks expect special treatment from President

    Being a black individual and watching the constant uprising of Blacks demanding society, the President & the world to hear our cause in such a myopic claim is embarrassing for me. The idea that President Obama should take special treatment because he's one of us is really small minded. We elected him because he is a fair person serving everyone and I'm proud of that. I am a black person going through life with all kinds of issues also but I like to do something constructive, like make an example of myself that I'm not going to cry the race card every time something happens to me. NEWS FLASH : Racism exists everywhere & to everyone!!. As far as the Trayvon's case, the main issue at the moment is 'why wasn't Zimmerman at least arrested for investigation? Yes, he said racial things but if we arrested everyone for blurting out racial comments.......hhhmmmm...more prison cells need to be built. Again, stick to the issue at hand: Zimmerman possibly killed Trayvon with no motive but hatred at stake. Society can figure out that he is a racist by the voice messages and the corrupt system we have. Are we (blacks) so low on resources that we can't sue the city/state for complete negligence??? We will still get the attention of the world but in a intelligent, thought provoking method that is respected..
