| May 25, 2015 | 0 Comments

Criticism and concerns are growing in the wake of deaths across the country of unarmed blacks killed by officers sworn to protect them. Even after video tape evidence and federal investigations most cases yield very little retribution for the victims , prompting black citizens to question if president Obama , who is black, is doing all he can do to right the injustices happening in the justice system. According to DailyMail:

Byron Allen has branded President Barack Obama ‘a white president in blackface’. And also said that ‘Black America would have done much better with a white president’.
The comedian, who is also black, gave a rambling interview to TMZ about Obama’s description of rioters in Baltimore as ‘thugs’, which he said was unjustified.
He accused the president of not acting ‘like a black man’ and of failing to ‘stand up’ for the African American community, which is being ‘failed by the system’.
Black people, he concluded, have never been worse off, adding: ‘Black America would have done much better with a white president.’
Addressing the president directly, he says: ‘Remember who you are… It’s ok to be the president of the United States and also be a black man. It’s human. And guess what? People will respect you more if you stop acting like you’re not.’
