Barack Obama Condemns Viral Facebook Attack On White Man Calling It Despicable

A viral Facebook video which contains racist actions against a white Man has been condemned by the President Barack Obama.

The Video which contained four black teens torturing a white disabled Man and saying "f*ck white people" as well as "f*ck Trump" was described by the President as "Despicable", "I take these things very seriously," also confirming,  he sees the incident depicted in the Video constitute a hate crime.

Speaking to CBS Chicago in a white house interview, the President disclosed that the incident does not depict the rising increase of racist actions in America. "In part because we see visuals of racial tensions, violence, and so forth; because of smart phones and the Internet,".

"What we have seen as surfacing, I think, are a lot of problems that have been there a long time," he explained. "Whether it's tensions between police and communities, hate crimes of the despicable sort that has just now recently surfaced on Facebook."

From his point of view, the United states are in the state of possible progress, saying race relations are getting better.
"I think the overall trajectory of race relations in this country is actually very positive. It doesn't mean that all racial problems have gone away. It means that we have the capacity to get better."

"The good news is that the next generation that's coming behind us ... have smarter, better, more thoughtful attitudes about race," he said, furthering his optimistic viewpoint.

The President-elect Donald Trump seem to be quiet about the matter right now but no doubt, it's going to cause some issues for conservatives and racially focused progressives, such as the Black Lives Matter movement.
