Obama says nation must do soul-searching about horrible racial attack on white boy
After 13 year old Allen Coon of Kansas City, walking home from school, was chased onto his porch by two 16 year old blacks who poured gasoline on him, flicked a lighter, and said, “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy,” setting him aflame and causing first degree burns to his face and head, President Obama lost no time expressing his concern that such a thing could happen in America.
“I think all of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how does something like this happen. What messages are we sending to black youth that make them do such terrible things to whites?”
Obama’s remarks were welcomed as a long-delayed recognition of the scourge of racially motivated black-on-white violence and as a clear statement that as president he cares about all Americans.
