Jamelle Bouie on Obama and Trayvon


After President Obama's impromptu 17-minute speech about Trayvon Martin in the White House press room yesterday, I invited Jammelle Bouie (writer for The Daily Beast and The American Prospect) to join me on America Weekend to discuss it. He explained what it meant to him as an African-American man, why Obama has rarely identified with his blackness as president, and the impact his remarks will have on the topic of race in America.
