President Obama Speech - "Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago"

What do you think - Blatant Hypocrisy or Genuine Concern and call for healing?
"Where do we take this?" Obama wondered aloud in an impromptu appearance in the White House briefing room. "How do we learn some lessons from this and move in a positive direction?"
The president said it's time "for all of us to some soul searching," but he also said it's generally not productive when politicians try to orchestrate a conversation.
On the positive side, he said race relations in the United States actually are getting better Looking at his own daughters and their interactions with friends, the president said, "They're better than we are. They're better than we were."
The president declined to wade into the detail of legal questions about the Florida case, saying, "Once the jury's spoken, that's how our system works."

A new phase in the Obama NSA 'tail wagging the dog' gambit?

Is he merely being divisive or is this an attempt to fan the flames in order to keep a potential new phase in the NSA scandal out of the news?
