Obama would have made at least 3 speeches about it as well as having another beer summit.
The president and people like Jackson and Sharpton are doing the black community a real disservice by ignoring these racially-fueled attacks (they all certainly had lots to say about the Zimmerman-Martin case). But that particular dialogue doesn't fit in with the race grievance industry. It is the elephant in the room, everybody knows what is going on.
Having role models at least address the problem would be a step in the right direction although I don't know how much it would help. At the heart of these awful attacks is the breakdown of the family. Yes, popular culture & pack mentality fuels the problem but with no direction, discipline - no parenting - at home, this is the result, IMO.
