Obama said Trayvon Martin could be he son. Now what, exactly, would he say to the boys on the bus that beat up the student; or to the trio of ‘bored’ teens who shot the jogging baseball player; or to the malicious duo that beat to death an 81-year-old vet? Would they be his sons too?

Obama inserted himself into the Trayvon case but has not commented on any of the three horrors mentioned above. Why not?

Neither have any of the black leaders that have complained of racism but are quiet on black on white crime.

These young men made bad choices, and there were choices to make.

Where are the parents? Where are the mentors?

Our country is floundering in accusations but no actions.

President Obama can reach thousands from his bully pulpit. It’s past time for him to speak up.
