Obama Baltimore riots

However he works it out, President Obama seems to lay blame for just about everything on someone or some thing other than exactly where it lies. And of course, Barack never even comes close to taking the blame himself.

Take the Baltimore riots for instance. Without even considering that Baltimore has had liberal Democratic mayors since 1967 and have been run on liberal policies for that long as well, President Obama lays the blame for the riots on a "tragic history."

Instead of looking at the fact that Baltimore has a black mayor, a black police chief, 3 arrested officers in the Freddie Gray case are black, the prosecutor in the case is black, oh, and Freddie Gray had a criminal record a mile long, but Obama wants to blame a, “sense of unfairness" as well and other civic leaders want to pull out the ever present race card to add to the mix.

Why do liberals never want to look at their own policies and leaders for creating the "unfairness" leading to a "tragic history"?

President Barack Obama addressed the unrest in Baltimore that occurred in the aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray, the African American male who died April 19 from a fatal injury to his spine while he was in police custody.

The president spoke at Lehman College in New York City on Monday to promote the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, a mentoring program for boys and young men of color. During the speech, Obama lamented what he described as the “tragic history in this country that has made it tougher for some.”

Obama pointed to the “sense of unfairness and powerless of people not hearing their voices, that’s helped fueled some of the protest we’ve seen in places like Baltimore, and Ferguson and right here in New York.”
