Stop disrespecting Obama


I was at the local store to purchase a newspaper, I noticed other papers had large font-page pictures of our 44th, second-term inauguration of President Barack Obama.

Then looking at our Tribune Chronicle front page, I needed a magnifying glass to see Mr. Obama. As I recall from the Jan. 20, 2009, inauguration printing in the Tribune, you also had a small picture of Obama.

But had someone of color been a suspect or a victim of a violent crime, their picture would be large enough for one to see on the front page.

Stop disrespecting our president, because for the next four years he’s your president as well as mine.
