In the wake of the George Zimmerman acquittal, Dear Leader marched down to the White House press room to claim that he could have been Trayvon Martin years ago. The Daily Caller promptly pointed out that President Obama and George Zimmerman have the same disapproval rating of 48%. Dear Leader could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago, but today Dear Leader is George Zimmerman. Dear Leader’s full remarks are here, courtesy of the Washington Post.
Dear Leader noted that many African-American men, including him, had been followed while shopping in a department store. Nearly all of those men are still alive because they didn’t turn around and begin slamming the head of the loss prevention officer into the floor. Dear Leader does not deny that black men are disproportionately involved in the perpetuation of violence, but he places that fact in context. Yes, context is important. One young black man wanted some Air Jordans, and he saw another black man wearing some Air Jordans, so he shot him in order to take his shoes. Context is everything.
Here’s the context, via a Google search.
Dear Leader specifically denied the existence of a five point plan, because the plan had four points. One, exploit Trayvon Martin’s death for political purposes. Two, pressure the locals to prosecute George Zimmerman. Three, manufacture protests in Florida through the Justice Department’s CRS. Four, in the event that Zimmerman is acquitted, leave open the option of prosecuting him for civil rights violations under federal law.
Dear Leader also noted his past work as an Illinois state legislator passing anti-profiling legislation. While he referenced the police, and noted the difficult job of law enforcement, he did not bother to realize that the real profiling occurs within the African-American community. Here’s an explanation, from comedian Chris Rock:

Yes, Dear Leader has much re-education to accomplish on the issue of profiling. However, his knowledge that Trayvon Martin could have been him 35 years ago will doubtless drive him forward in his quest to achieve cosmic justice and equality for all, as well as an end to racial hatred. Dear Leader shall gird his loins with courage, and his breast with righteousness, and he shall march forward, firm in his convictions and resolute in his determination.
