Newt says the Trayvon Martin case
Would be as bad if he were white.
That’s true, but Newt’s off base
Because there’d only be a slight
Off-chance Trayvon would be attacked
If he were white instead of black.
Perhaps Newt doesn’t have a clue
About what’s racial and what’s not
But it’s more likely that he knew
Exactly what he said and sought
To focus on Obama’s tone
And play a race card of his own.
