Because something is up over on the wild side [no I wont be linking to that cesspool]

Frothing at the mouth

Running for their guns

Making shit up

And the smell of burning hair is overpowering.

Oh President Obama told a personal story in relation to a murdered teenager and how this relates to pretty much every other teenager of color.

How dare he!

Doesn't he know that White America is all post racial and shit? The supreme court said so.

Why is he dividing the nation!

Muslim!

Kenyan!

Racist!

iNversion!

Doesn't he know all people of color, look at the prisons, look at made up studies; ARE CRIMINALS!!!

omfg pA WHERE'S MA RIFLE! I goTTa Go out n Stand mA gRoUnd!

Sorry, but reading all that garbage affects my keyboard.

Telling the truth, and what anyone with even half decent reasoning skills can ascertain that discrimination against people of color is ongoing, and the Martin fiasco a sign of institutionalized racism.

To think it took actually electing President Obama to bring this festering nonsense to the surface for all the world to see.

That in itself makes me happy for voting for him in the first place.

Until you can actually see what lurks beneath the surface it is hard to deal with it, and yeesh have we seen some festering filth since 2008.

Well done Mr President. Keep shining the light into those dark corners.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
