Obama Criticizes Black Deaths by Police, but Also Rioters

Nedra Pickler, Yahoo! News, April 28, 2015

Urging Americans to “do some soul-searching,” President Barack Obama expressed deep frustration Tuesday over recurring black deaths at the hands of police, rioters responding with senseless violence and a society that will only “feign concern” without addressing the root causes.

“This is not new. It’s been going on for decades,” Obama said from the White House a day after rioting erupted 40 miles north in Baltimore following the funeral for Freddie Gray, who died of a spinal cord injury after being arrested.

Gray is the latest black man to die at the hands of police, prompting protests and calls for criminal justice reform. Some have criticized America’s first black president for not speaking out forcefully enough as he tries to avoid criticism of law enforcement, and he responded by calling the deaths “a slow-rolling crisis.”

“We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals, primarily African-American, often poor, in ways that raise troubling questions. It comes up, it seems like, once a week now,” Obama said. He said although such cases aren’t unprecedented, there’s new awareness as a result of cameras and social media. “We shouldn’t pretend that it’s new.”

Still, Obama showed no sympathy for rioters, saying those who stole from businesses and burned buildings and cars should be treated as criminals. Obama said they distracted from days of peaceful protests focused on legitimate concerns “over the possibility that our laws were not applied evenly in the case of Mr. Gray and that accountability needs to exist.”


But he also criticized a society that doesn’t do enough to uplift poor minority communities. He said the solution to deep-seeded problems that spur violence include early education, criminal justice reform and job training, while suggesting that kind of a response is out of reach with a Republican Congress. “I’m under no illusion that out of this Congress we’re going to get massive investments in urban communities,” Obama said.

    When I read Obama’s entirely predictable comments, I heard the ” wah wah wah” from the old Charlie Brown cartoons in my head.

    • thegodsofeden

      Amazing how that works, isn’t it?

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      I had a dream last night of 1,000 Teutonic mounted knights riding down the rioters, then I woke up and remember that white people are wimps.

    • InAFreeCountry

      You too? Speaking of Charlie Brown…

  • We are being prepared for the official explanation that “militarized” cops and the surveillance state caused the riots, when anyone with any whit of common sense knows that the black riots resulted in “militarized” cops and the surveillance state.

    • TruthBeTold

      I just watched the PBS News Hour assessment.

      It turns out what cause this ‘uprising’ is aggressive policing. The cops were harassing black youths for petty crimes, they got criminal records, they couldn’t get jobs, and they lost all hope.

      I suppose the solution to the problems of Baltimore is to do away with the police altogether.

      • Deacon Blue

        I am all for it. Let them police themselves. Works wonders in sub-Saharan
        African countries. Just fence them in to places like Ferguson, Baltimore,
        Detroit, etc. Give Whites 48 hours notice to enter or exit. Then seal them
        shut. Will be like Escape From New York. Snake Plisskin anyone?

      • A Freespeechzone

        Make NO mistake, the ‘community’ wants NO policing and the ‘right’ to do anything they choose without any ramifications.

        Obama/Holder and the media support that…..

        • InAFreeCountry

          They want their safe space to destroy.

      • Lexonaut

        “I suppose the solution to the problems of Baltimore is to do away with the police altogether.”

        No, just pull out all the white cops. After that que sera, sera.

      • Cecil Henry

        Meanwhile. I get a job, and have all my earnings taxed away to nothing to support this.

        So why work???? The redistribution and parasitic system must END. Big government is theft.

      • Robert Smith

        The common thread I see in these deaths at the hands of police is a failure of the black “community” to listen to the police and not resist arrest or questioning. I believe in most, if not all cases, had the suspects cooperated with the police they’d be alive. What we are witnessing is the attempt to define gangsterism as a civil right.

        • TruthBeTold

          Yes. If the police catch you committing a crime, don’t run or argue.

          Some people will tell you this is submitting to the police state but I’m not going to get into a fight with a cop who has a gun, the authority to use it, and will likely be believed before I will.

          • Robert Smith

            When driving drunk, dealing illegal drugs it isn’t a function of the police state. It’s the legitimate use of police authority to maintain civilization.

    • pennawhytmn

      Blacks could look out a window and see wet sidewalks and raindrops falling from the sky, and claim the wet sidewalks caused the rain.

      • Katherine McChesney

        They’d also claim the wet sidewalks prevented them from having jobs.

    • Max

      Cause and effect are completely mysterious to the left. They do not understand that sloth and criminality cause poverty. They do not understand that “gun-free zones” lead to mass killings. They do not understand that promiscuity leads to disease. They do not understand that mass immigration of low-skill invaders is a net cost and further deprives native low-skill persons of employment.

      It is no surprise whatever that the low-information elements of the left believe that police CAUSE riots. The collectivist elite however, know that this is all part of the program.

  • Alexandra1973

    We could invest in one-way tickets back to Africa. Imagine how much we’d save in “gibsmedat” programs.

    • Sam Brown

      Instead the US government and the refugee agencies are gearing up to import more blacks from Africa.

    • Sid Ishus

      You’re crazy if you think even one Black person would get on that boat. They have it made and they know it.

      Things not going your way? Riot, burn and loot and watch Whitey run to fix it and pay more attention to your needs.

      Not getting the job you want? Cry racism.

      Did you get fired? Cry racism.

      Didn’t get a loan? Cry racism

      White girl didn’t want to go out with you? Cry racism.

      Teacher give you a low grade? Cry racism.

      Are you in prison? Cry racism.

      If they were back in Africa their trump card wouldn’t work.

      • Alexandra1973

        Well, they whine about their ancestors coming here in chains, they can leave the same way.

    • MooTieFighter

    In the past 50 years, we’ve made incredible investments in the “urban communities”, and these investments have paid off handsomely. Just look at the wonderful increase in these populations.

      Briefly caught some clips of Baltimore on O’Reilly’s show on FOX… all the dancing in the streets, beating drums like they were in the African rain forest…normal behavior for black primitives but the worst was a white woman on roller skates whooping it up with her male boyfriend bluegum, then skating down to another black beast and jumping up into his arms and wrapping her legs around his waist. Maybe she’ll slip tonight on her skates and land hard on her white rear-end.

  • journey

    The race hustler dares not mention that whites, Asians, and Hispanics do not riot, loot, etc over “social injustice” just blacks. As for more “community investment” = eternal handouts that goes into a black hole never to be seen again. This country needs to say enough is enough.

    • Chip Carver

      Keep in mind that the majority of rioters arrested in the LA riots of ’92 were hispanic, and this is well before they outnumbered blacks here in town (yes, I’m in beautiful LA. The hispanics are opportunists besides being violent, and when things take a tumble, they’ll be trying to help themselves to whatever they want, even if it’s yours.

      • journey

        You trigger me to Google that ’92 riot. From what I read on Wikipedia, it appeared Hispanics joined in the looting due to fear of no supplies getting into the area, no speak English (also feeling oppressed). But the major difference between Koreans and the two other groups, the Koreans did not loot or riot. LAPD abandoned them so they literally had to defend themselves against the hordes.

        I would guess, more Hispanics got arrested over blacks because blacks are the victims (protected species) in this country.

      • John Smith

        I had an uncle who always said they worked hard, but would steal when they saw an opportunity. There used to be a joke about why Hispanics didn’t marry blacks – they didn’t want their kids to grow up too lazy to steal.

        • Samuel Hathaway

          …why Hispanics didn’t marry blacks – they didn’t want their kids to grow up too lazy to steal…

          LOL! hurt my gut on that one!

        • Lexonaut

          The recipe for Gypsy rabbit stew begins with … First, steal a rabbit.

    • That is because only the black people are “oppressed.” See, Whites and Asians have “privilege” and hence no justification to ever riot. But it is fine for blacks. Yep, the “community organizer” at work.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        The “community organizer” whose qualifications are no better than being drafted for the “C” team, doesn’t seem particularly interested in community organizing in major cities going up in flames in the very nation where he occupies the presidency.

  • AmericanCitizen

    Very surprising that a Lib/Prog like Obama would think that more government spending and social programs are the answer.

    • Yeah, we “need to invest more in our inner city communities.” Gee. How did he think of that? Gosh, now, if only someone else had come up with that novel idea. (Really, like we haven’t been doing that, to no avail, for at least the last fifty or more odd years?)

      • Samuel Hathaway

        Bleeding the white taxpayers eternally to prop up failed African societies is the whole point, no? Results don’t matter. Just the appearance of “doing something”, pitting blacks against the white taxpayers to agitate for more spending is all we need to know about the goals of the First-Muslim-In-Chief.

      • Spikeygrrl

        Odd years indeed. Per the Chinese curse, we live in interesting times.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    “This is not new. It’s been going on for decades,” Obama said.

    You mean black riots have been going on for decades, Mr. President? Yeah, we know. And, because we here at Amren are wise to the true reason behind black riots, we know that your proposed investment solutions will do nothing to prevent future black riots, just like the mass urban investment that started a half century ago did nothing to stop Ferguson or Baltimore from imploding. I understand that it’s difficult for you to admit uncomfortable truths about your preferred half, Mr. President, but that’s the truth.

    • Yeah, and WHY? That is the question. Oh, I see, because we White people are just soooo racist. Did it ever occur to any of the libs out there that maybe, just maybe, they might be wrong and that after half a century maybe, just maybe, the other side had a point and that there is something inherently wrong with black people that makes that race behave that way and that maybe the stereotypes aren’t entirely unreasonable? This is insanity. Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

      • Nonhumans

        Insanity is synonymous with libtardism.
        Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results IS what libtards do. Not only do they live in a fantasy-world, they cringe in the face of truth & reality.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      The preferred half, indeed…. Kenyan, that is. Raised by a white mother and white grandmother, a social pattern all too common among young black males and who raises them, Obama doesn’t give a ##@*) about black on white crime, evidenced by the benign indifference of the beheading of that white woman in Oklahoma by that radical black muslim.

      According to Salon:

      As a nation, we fail to comprehend Black political strategy in much the same way we fail to recognize the value of Black life.

      Black political strategy = rioting and looting booze, drugs and toilet paper

      • See, you people on American Renaissance. You guys think that you knew all about black people. Well this story just shows that you are wrong. See, black people DO sometimes use toilet paper. Actually these images has improved slightly my opinion of blacks.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          The image on one of your posts didn’t come through.

  • I followed Herr Obama’s orders and did some “soul searching.” My soul tells me that cracking skulls is the way to prevent future riots. My soul tells me Obama is a BSer. My soul tells me that spending more white money on pie in the sky by and by is pure waste.

    Thanks, Obama. That soul searching thing is really good. I feel much better now.

    • Yeah, a liberal says, “We are all Americans.” (Even Somali refugees!) But when a liberal says “America” must do some “soul searching” he/she means “White people need to do soul searching.”

    • He isn’t even consciously aware of being a BS-er, which would imply some deliberate thinking on his own part. Instead, he just opens his mouth and stupid $#!& crawls out.

    “We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals, primarily African-American, often poor, in ways that raise troubling questions. It comes up, it seems like, once a week now,” Obama said.

    Granted it is just one example over the past six years, but for a President of the United States to speak this way is an absolute embarrassment.

    • thegodsofeden

      He’s like my supervisor at work. When he gives directions to do something, and it
      makes absolutely no sense and doesn’t fit the job at hand, if someone points it out, he just gives a smile and says, “Yeah but that’s why I’m the manager. Just do it”.

    • “Yeah, ya know, I mean, like, those riots, and the police. You know, we need to look at this, you know? This comes up every now and then. And, you know, rioting and looting are bad, you know..” I think he needs a new teleprompter, “ya know”?

      • InAFreeCountry

        Ya know what I’m sayin’? He must be biting his tongue to keep from completing the magic phrase.

        • What is worse is that he doesn’t even speak black English well: His back ground is not “African American.” He was a privileged multiracial kid from Hawaii and Indonesia. He is as alien to the American black culture as most of us would be, maybe more so. His feeling of unity with blacks is only because of his hatred against Whites. He hates a culture that he can never really be part of. No, in this case, he is just someone who can’t speak well in public, depending on the teleprompter. Anyway, thanks, “ya know”, for your reply. LOL.

      • I know; gnome sayin’?

  • Hilis Hatki

    I see that he talked about Baltimore at the TPP news conference today. He had a list of what was needed to be done.. I sat thinking… What have you been getting payed for? He said the same old gobbledygook talking points. Soon the economy will be so bad it will not be just the blacks rioting. How do you create opportunities for 300 million people without destroying the natural world…. just give everyone a million dollars…. make everyone, in need, a Congressman… just buy stock… No.

    Obama knows the answer to these decades old problems, his smile today told the answer ….total control of everyone.

    • Yeah, Obama, last week you talked about all the people who are coming here and how we need to help them stay here and now you are talking about all the lack of jobs in the inner cities. I guess connecting the dots is not something you were taught at your previous employment as a community organizer.

  • Canadian Friend

Seriously, this man is still living in the sixties, where he got taught by his mentor, Bill Ayers. These ideas are just so outmoded. It would be like a Republican conservative talking about, “I know the names of fifteen Communist agents in the State Department.” The exception is of course, that the conservative would get laughed off the podium for saying that.

      • Spikeygrrl

      It won’t change anything. Polticians garner favorable public opinion within their voting constituencies by taxing the productive to subsidize the takers. Results are not the point. The only thing that matters is the illusion of propping up a failed constituency by continuing to feed it like a wild animal that cannot be changed.

    “…a society that doesn’t do enough to uplift poor minority communities.”

    Mr. President, why continue to enforce the “poor minorities” belief that they are always the victims? Why didn’t you say, “Help yourselves first by supporting family solidarity – a father, mother (married) and children who are taught respect for authorities such as police, teachers and are church-centered, or at least taught moral values at hoime.

    Stay in school. Drop outs are rarely hired. Pull up your pants and act like a concerned member of society. Quit listening to the filthy and agressive lyrics from the rappers. Pick up a book instead. Treat others with respect – a good way to earn it for yourself.

    Don’t travel the classroom to prison route that so many do. Show society you are someone that can break out of the mold.

    These are only a few suggestions and are all free. You don’t have to depend on anyone else to be a decent, law-abiding, considerate human being. Lift yourself up!

  • Alex Williamson

    The problem is the way blacks interact with the police. If they said “how can I I help you officer?” instead of “f*** you pig motherf***er” they would be on the receiving end of a lot fewer beatings. Many feral blacks simply have no idea how to speak to authority figures politely, largely because of the breakdown of the black family. Perhaps they should be given special classes at school on how to speak to people properly and respectfully. It would help them find gainful employment and avoid being beaten by the police.

    After all of these instances of black outrage, it is amazing that not one politician or leader has said the obvious, that is, please obey a law officers orders.

  • Baltimore, among other black cities, have seen millions upon millions of dollars spent on these troubled cities. You know what happens as a result? Nothing. Let them fare for themselves, and strip away the citizenship of all those who riot.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    “We shouldn’t pretend that it’s new,” says the First-Muslim-In Chief of the policing in crime-ridden black communities.
    Actually we need to stop pretending that Obama is qualified to be president, that he gives a ##@*! about Baltimore more than he cares about playing golf, or that the next year-and-a-half is going to be anything to look forward to under this underqualified, intellectually retarded sorry of an excuse elected by a bunch of multi-culti worshiping lemmings.

  • Obama still wants to cling to the outmoded ideas that have been around for the last fifty years. They sounded so good when the youthful hippies said them, but are getting old.

    What a laugh that was. Baltimore has had a very, very long time under liberal Democrats for this ‘urban investment’. Well, what happened to the gravy train of federal monies that no doubt poured into that city over the decades without hardly a hint of results? Oh, yeah, the past two black mayoral administrations probably saw those fat stacks of cash eaten up by corruption, mismanagement, and ineptitude. They piss away the dough handed to them and now act like they’re shocked that the taxpayer is getting tired of funding this race of misfits and nitwits.

  • Reverend Bacon

    This response from the circle-squarers always amazes me, no matter how often I hear it. What’s the number? We’ve spent about 100 trillion dollars on this experiment, and we’re worse off than when we started. How anyone can have the unmitigated temerity to assert that we’ve not spent enough is beyond me.

    And since we’re nowhere at all, the number can’t be anywhere near $100 trillion. $one quadrillion? Ten? A hundred? Would that bridge the “achievement gap” and the “violence gap” and the “intelligence gap” and the “criminality gap” and all the other gaps that many think can’t be bridged? And how could it possibly be worth it? For 40 trillion, we could give every black a million dollars to relocate to someplace less racist, like Liberia. I don’t like welfare, and I hate the idea of reparations: I think blacks owe us, rather than the reverse. But that would stop the hemorrhaging.

    By all means Obama, throw more taxpayer money at it. That’s always the Progressive solution.

  • JohnEngelman

    Urging Americans to “do some soul-searching,” President Barack Obama expressed deep frustration Tuesday over recurring black deaths at the hands of police, rioters responding with senseless violence and a society that will only “feign concern” without addressing the root causes.

    – Nedra Pickler, Yahoo! News, April 28, 2015

    The “root causes” of black crime can be found in the black genome.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    If Obama and the Democrats had any sense, they’d be incredibly embarrassed by the constant riots, protests, “knockout games,” altercations and so on by blacks in the last few years. So much for “hope and change,” of a black president “bringing the nation together. Things have only gone from bad to worse since “the great black hope” came into office. Maybe the premise was wrong in the first place?

  • 4321realist

    Obama says the solution involves more “investments in urban communities.

    Yes, so the blacks can burn them down as they ALWAYS do.

    If blacks are the same as every other race, then why can’t they start up their own neighborhood businesses instead of relying on immigrants to do that?

    They would get preferences on small business loans.

    Of course not being able to do basic math might be a problem for them, I guess.

    “But he also criticized a society that doesn’t do enough to uplift poor minority communities. He said the solution to deep-seeded problems that spur violence include early education, criminal justice reform and job training, while suggesting that kind of a response is out of reach with a Republican Congress. “I’m under no illusion that out of this Congress we’re going to get massive investments in urban communities,” Obama said.”

    What Obomunist meant was that it wasn’t enough to give them free food. It must be cooked, served, and put into their mouths.

  • Max

    “Invest” in the parlance of the left means in fact that your money would be better spent in your fireplace during winter months to provide heat for your home.

    His Hopefulness’ “investments” are guaranteed losses for every productive citizen as has been demonstrated for the last five decades. He is this nation’s welfare recipient-in-chief.

  • Realist.44

    Maybe one of the black communities problems Mr. Obama forgot to mention was the lack of two parents in many families and zero parenting from most parents coupled with black culture in general and goaded into violence by constant messages of “evil YT” is the reason(s).

  • H. Mueller

    We as productive citizens have paid trillions of dollars towards the plight of the American negro since LBJs Great Society was instituted in the 60s. This is what we get for our money. We get out of proportion murders and attacks on Whites, we get schools that cant work for teaching due to disruptive negroes. We get burned cities, we get vast areas of trashed, no go zones for Whites.

    Whites who are vastly more qualified get passed over for jobs, placement in higher education facilities, due to racist affirmative action. The negro is paid to breed, given food and medical care, housing and education assistance. Whites get attacked and blamed for all of the ills that befall a race of low IQ, violent negroes.

    Enough of this, it is now time for the negro to do something for himself, stop the blame game, and become a contributor. We have paid enough, when the negro gets his act together, then he can think about repaying Whites for all they have done for him. Although that would never happen, we would just be satisfied with them leaving us alone, both physically and financially.

    I really despise this A-hole ..

  • slobotnavich

    More “investment in urban communities”? How about the tens of trillions in taxpayer dollars spent over the past fifty years squandered in black urban communities, project housing turned to wreckage and rubble by black occupancy, once beautiful urban neighborhoods totally destroyed by black occupation, abandoned cars everywhere, drug dealers openly plying their wares, heavy bars on the windows of every commercial establishment…….? Interesting how we see this phenomenon everywhere in the world where blacks are found in any large numbers, everywhere, no exceptions, not one. Bringing them into our nation as slaves was the greatest single mistake our forebears ever made. Not re-exporting them to Africa after the Civil War, as none other than old (Dis)Honest Abe Lincoln wanted to do, was the second greatest.

    The more we funnel into these war zones and urban schools, the worse they do. He knows this, he simply realizes his constituents are too dumb to realize this very well known fact. I have seen graphs of many of these inter cities that reveal the stark reality: crime/poor grades actually INCREASE as more government funds poor in. A lot of these funds also go missing (no surprises there, either) and have shown direct correlations with black politicians. All facts you will never see or hear discussed in modern America.

  • Light from the East

    I don’t care what this anti-white hypocrite said, I just know the similar situation will happen over and over again as white population decreases. The sign of a breakout of a trend has already begun, we should strengthen ourselves to protect our core interest.

  • Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus

    “I’m under no illusion that out of this Congress we’re going to get massive investments in urban communities,” Obama said.

    Is Obama referring to the urban communities he’s encouraging his base to burn down? I guess he wants Republicans to rebuild those neighborhoods. So his base can burn them down again.

    His concern is touching.
