Since #BlackTwitter is taken as a monolith, perhaps we can call this "#WhiteTwitter's" response to President Obama's poignant speech about Trayvon Martin, racial profiling and the treatment of African-American men in the U.S.* This kind of pervasive resistance to the notion of humanizing Black boys, cannot and will not stop the necessary social change that President Obama calls on ALL Americans to embrace.

Obama realized the truth about Trayvon's bad habits was surfacing, so he gave a speech to turn the boiling pot down to a simmer. #agitator

If you ever had any doubts, Obama is the first Racist in Chief

Obama's race dividing garbage speech today, where whites are automatically racist and blacks are automatically victims was beyond pathetic.

@IngrahamAngle Obama just made another Racist Speech! How much more do we take re IMPEACHMENT? The man needs to be reigned in and fast!

Obama is giving his "race" speech. He is the racist of all racists. #ObamaHypocrite

No one in media has courage to criticize Obama for his racial demagoguery, but in living rooms around the world his numbers are falling.

Worth noting that WH gave no advance notice of the President's statement today. Will appear in Saturday papers: least read of the week.

*Insert the should-be-unnecessary disclaimer that I understand that no, this is not how ALL White people responded to the speech. K? K.
