As a someone who was born in NY I say NO!
But not for the same reasons as some...
We know how President Obama feels, He supports 'The Right' of Muslims To Build The Ground Zero Mosque. Yes, a Islamic community center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero.
Should blacks in America be concerned about this?
Why should we, when blacks are treated like slaves in Iraq and other Muslim countries?
Why did the President have to jump into the fray? Why did he engage FOX News and other right wingers in opening these old wounds? Why is the President playing into Fox News hands? Let's talk about it tonight, on the AAPP's political slugfest... "If you can handle the truth."
It's too bad the President didn't lay out all the facts... maybe, just maybe, the American people would understand.
