Obama On Trayvon Martin

His first comments on the situation "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon" is probably the highest moment of his presidency in my book. It was the perfect thing to say at the time, and simple, yet profound. His explanation here about the very different set of circumstances African Americans face in American society is worded beautifully and it's something so  many people need to hear and comprehend. Extremely well said, and I'm very thankful he used his platform for this purpose.
