Obama: 'Trayvon Martin Could've Been Me'

"There are very few African-American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed in a department store. That includes me." "...walking across the street and hearing the locks click on cars. That happens to me - at least before I was a senator." "...getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse, nervously and holding her breathe until she had a chance to get off. That happens often. And I don't want to exaggerate this but those sets of experiences inform how the African-American community interprets what happened one night in Florida. It is in escapable for people to bring those experiences to bare."
