Obama is indeed a role model for young black men, so much so that in St. Louis there is a new gang, aptly called “Obama Boyz.”
According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch:
Anthony Jamal Lee, 18, fired at a group of people from the window of a Grand Prix at 2:17 p.m., according to charges. A 13-year-old boy was struck in the side of his body and had to be hospitalized; a 17-year-old boy was grazed by bullets on his face and arm.
Lee, according to authorities, then fired from his car at two passengers in another Grand Prix, grazing one of them in the back.
One shooting occurred at the 3200 block of Oriole Avenue, and the other nearby at Harney and Beacon avenues.
Lee, who was charged Friday in St. Louis Circuit Court, faces a mix of 10 felony counts of first-degree assault, armed criminal action and firing shots from a vehicle. Judge Theresa Burke set $100,000 cash bail.
Authorities said Lee is a documented member of the “Obama Boyz” gang, but did not elaborate.
Can’t blame this one on Bush, who surprisingly doesn’t have any street gangs named after him. Heck, even America’s first black president, Bill Clinton doesn’t have a street gang named after him. No, that distinction is reserved for the president who has inspired black teens to “hope and change.”
