Speaking alongside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto during a state visit to Latin America’s No. 2 economy, Erdogan said Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry should take a position following such acts.

“If you stay silent when faced with an incident like this, and don’t make a statement, the world will stay silent towards you,” Erdogan said, condemning those responsible for the shootings.

His silence was not because they were Moslems. His silence was because they were white. Like the rabble rouser Sharpton, Obama only expresses outrage at Ferguson style racism. Other forms of racism get a presidential pardon.
