Obama’s “Blackest” Week Ever: Declares ‘You’re In My House,’ and Sings ‘Amazing Grace’

President Barack Obama just might be having his “blackest” week yet as leader of this nation. When we say “black” we mean Black American.

First Obama shut down a heckler that interrupted his speech at a White House event honoring LGBT Pride Month on Wednesday, by declaring, “Listen you’re in my house … it’s not respectful,” and then requesting that the person be removed.

Obama explained, “as a general rule I am just fine with a few hecklers. But not when I’m up here in the house,” to which Vice President Joe Biden clapped him on the back in agreement -in true road dog style.

Two days later the President eulogized the Reverend Clementa C. Pinckney, who was murdered in the racially motivated mass-shooting of a prayer group at a black church  in Charleston South Carolina, and broke out in spiritual song with “Amazing Grace.” Just watching it on a screen made us want to stand up and testify, so it’s no wonder the clergy seated behind him leaped to their feet when he started singing.
