Feb. 8, 2016 - PRLog -- President Barack Obama highlighted points that have gone ignored surrounding African American’s, “There is a specific problem that is happening in the African-American community that is not happening in other communities, and that is a legitimate issue that we've got to address.”

"The African-American community is not just making this up. It's not something that's just being politicized. It's real," Obama said. "We as a society, particularly given our history, have to take this seriously.”
