President Obama today said Trayvon Martin’s parents dealt with the not-guilty verdict in George Zimmerman’s murder trial with “great dignity.”

Obama addressed the nation today as protests continue following Saturday’s controversial verdict in Sanford.

He said disparity in how laws have been enforced in America have shaped how African-Americans have responded to the verdict.

The president said “Trayvon Martin could have been me,” and very few African-American men have not felt as if they had been racially profiled.
