And that includes the President. A year ago he was asked by a reporter to comment on the death of Trayvon Martin. He answered something to the effect of "if I had a son he probably would have looked just like him" .. and that was it. One emotional, introspective comment. But the wingnut media spins it as race-baiting and they're off and running for their guns.

When Obama said this last year, I never thought it was a big deal. I never took it as getting race into it, because, what he said was true. If Obama had a son he would look something like Martin although their facial shapes are remarkably different.
