Obama: Some People Still Feel They Can Kill a Black Man for Going for a Jog / WATCH

*Look for a certain orange a-hole who resides in the White House to very soon have a sh*t-fit, Errr, Sunday tweetstorm like no other due to the fact that on Saturday, Barack Obama definitely got his attention.

Obama went in on Donald Trump over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and also added that the fatal shooting of an unarmed black jogger in Georgia shows America is still unequal.

In his online commencement speech to the class of 2020 which graduated from historically black colleges and universities this year, former President Obama did not mention Trump by name, but you’d have be beyond dumb not to know who he was talking about.

“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” Obama told the graduates.

“A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge.”

Obama urged the graduating class to take up the mantle of leadership: “If the world’s going to get better, it’s going to be up to you.”

On Saturday, the first black president told HBCU graduates that the COVID-19 pandemic, which has claimed a disproportionately large number of African American victims, “just spotlights the underlying inequalities and extra burdens that black communities have historically had to deal with in this country.”

The inequalities Obama spoke of are visible not just in the realm of public health but also “just as we see it when a black man goes for a jog, and some folks feel like they can stop and question and shoot him if he doesn’t submit to their questioning.”
