First off, No other President in history has faced the kind of criticism this President has had to face. People feel that "we will NEVER have another white President in the WHITE house, now that we have a black president!" This is stupid, and shows just how far this country has slipped. People need to GROW UP! The office of President is to be respected, at ALL times. No matter who holds it. This President is to be VERY respected for maintaining his cool and not responding (in public) to this...

Secondly, the person who made that comment has no feelings of respect/sympathy for the families of Newtown, and what they are going through. The person making that comment needs to grow up, and look around them, or move to another country!

Michael L. Fisher, THANK YOU. I couldn't have said it better myself. There are disgusting people of ALL races. There are racists of all colors and some of them feel as though they have the right to be racist! That's the sad part about it. These poor people in Newtown are suffering, and STILL, some a**holes have to find something to be racially divisive about. It's hurtful and sad.

I was born in the deep south in the early 60's and I still remember the black only schools, bathrooms, water fountains, etc. I even remember when the black children had to wait until the white children finished swimming at the public swimming pool. I hated it then and I hate it even more now. Although the black schools and signs are gone, that's just cosmetics. It sickens me to know that as a nation, although we've grown, we are NOT there yet and it's due to ignorance. To me it's pure evil...

It sickens me to know that as a nation, although we've grown, we are NOT there yet and it's due to ignorance. To me it's pure evil when someone is criticized solely for the color of their skin. When will people realize we were all created by one God and in His image. Underneath it all we are all the same and to me having different color skin is the same as having different color hair or eyes. When President Obama was speaking Sunday night, he was trying to pull a nation together to show our fellow Americans who were affected by this horrible tragedy that we were there for them. supporting them. This person by his disrespect to our President, is just trying to pull our nation further apart. I'm a veteran and I fought for our freedoms, even freedom of speech. I don't believe you can use the excuse of freedom of speech to be hateful to another person, especially the President of the United States. Again, it's pure ignorance talking. I pray for the day the word racism is removed from our dictionaries and we can truly live as One Nation.

Thank you for your kind words but we are what we have grown up to be no one just hates the President for hate they hate him because a part of his DNA is Black and that is sad and only prayer can change the hearts of men Remember Paul on the road to Damascus on when he was blinded did he change his heart

I love your thoughts, thank you! For a person to carry around hatred is a heavy burden that takes a lot of energy. It is sad to hate merely because the color of someone skin. Hatred is like a cancer that eats away at you! Hatred is what caused this tragic and others that has occur in the past and in the future! That is what bigotry and hatred brings! When you cannot open your heart to someone loss because this disease of hatred is eating away at you taken over your mind and your heart, this is serious and sad!

I remember going to a town in Mississippi and having to see a water fountain downtown on the street that has, as a momento, white/black side of where to drink water. Why would someone want to be reminded of this incident throughout their lifetime.....rediculous!!! People are ignorant ALL over this world, not just in America, trust me. However, if one of those school children getting shot was one of those football watchers, would've been a whole different story, I'm just saying. GodBless and...

Wilhenmenia, I was speaking with an African American man today at the drug store about this story. He told me just last week a 5 yr old little boy called him the "N" work. Now, he couldn't figure out how that sweet young face could say such a cruel word, so he couldn't help himself and asked the little boy, "Who told you I was a "N"? The little boy shocked by the question said, "My Mom!". As Parents, we need to take our responsibility of raising children more important. It's a shame you...

You are right about that. I actually read that one of those comments came from a Black football player who was later released from the team after he tweeted that garbage. I never understood why anyone would use that word, especially ANY Black person. The word is disgusting no matter WHO uses it.

Will we ever grow up? The person making these racist comments is worse than a kid. The office of the presidency is to be respected at all times by All people. Even the republicans who don't want to work with him have the sense enough to respect him in public. What an idiot for a football game. What if it was one of your loved ones, would you still be asking the president to not speak to help console you.

Secondly - Mr. President, I want to say thank you for always showing a country that does not always show you, the concern and the respect, that you continue to demonstrate to all of us as individuals. I am truly grateful to be...

The President is a class act and represents who we are as Americans. Condemning the remarks by these cretins is positive sign of unity we have as Americans. We are growing as one and we love the beauty that diversity has given our country. I am very proud of all of you for standing up and speaking out.

Craig, remember that no matter what the Obama haters of this country think or say, there are more of us who actually love and care about him than those who don't, and that is why he is still our President to this day because we said NO to going backwards! This country is never going to be the way that it once was, and it is incredibly sad for those who still want it that way. All we can do is keep spreading the love right ;-)

He is our president and as such deseves our respect. I have some wonderful friends who are black, and the color of their skin never enters my mind. I have heard this word, but didn't like it then and don't like it now. Now, more than ever, we need to work together for the common good. . He was clearly shaken with the tragedy and you could tell he was shaken. It's time to put division aside and work together to restore OUR country. Where did these people come from? This article is a disgrace to the human race.
