The full Obama speech on Trayvon Martin and race in America (VIDEO)

July 21, 2013

Much has been written about President Obama's impromptu remarks about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida and, more broadly, race in America, on Friday.

The one and only David Maraniss offered his take today. Dan Balz has chimed in. And, yes, we had our thoughts too.

Amid this sea of words, it's worth re-watching or, for many people, watching the 18 minute (or so) speech by Obama. As we tweeted at the time, Obama's remarks were among the most personal and, therefore, the most insightful of his presidency. It's well worth checking out.
