Obama, the self-appointed, all-knowing, King of Everything, has apparently determined the root cause of the Michael Brown shooting which led to months of violent race riots in the heartland of America. The President believes “police need training to distinguish between a gang banger and a kid who just happens to be wearing a hoodie.”
The President told ABC News:
“In the end, what I have confidence in is that if we do a better job of training our law enforcement to be sensitive to the concerns of minority communities, then over time, trust can be built. In part because minority communities typically are subject to more crime, they need law enforcement more than anybody. And there are a lot of communities in my hometown of Chicago, for example, who actually want to see more police in, but they want to make sure that the police are trained so they can distinguish between a gang-banger and a kid who just happens to be wearing a hoodie, but otherwise is a good kid and not doing anything wrong.”
The problem with Obama’s logic – or lack thereof – is that Michael Brown was a gang banger. He has been pictured flashing gang sings, he had a criminal record and he recorded rap songs about murdering innocent people. If it walks like a gang banger and raps like a gang banger, it’s probably a gang banger. Also, Michael Brown wasn’t wearing a hoodie when he was fatally shot, shedding further doubt that Obama knows what he’s talking about.

Michael Brown wasn’t a “good kid.” And he was doing something wrong. He had committed a strong-arm robbery moments before his confrontation with officer Darren Wilson. How many times have you worn a hoodie without getting shot by the police? Sound off in the comments section!
