Typical #Obama, he chose to divide us instead of uniting us. This was the perfect moment to do that. It’s a shame and he is not a leader

Obama and Holder are trying to divide this country, how dare you, both are violating everyone rights #barackobama #tcot #doj

Obama is catering to the independents that are angered by the #Zimmerman verdict. Best way to divide and gain votes for 2014.

4. The president urged Americans to respect the verdict, but also understand that racial discrimination is a real issue facing the majority of African Americans today.
