Stand Your Ground: Black Bodies and the Justice of God by Kelly Brown Douglas
http://aalbc.com/reviews/stand-your-ground.html
The author opens the opus with a history lesson, tracing the source of the problem back hundreds of years to the birth of “Exceptionalism” in Anglo-Saxon England. Reserved for whites, that notion enabled Caucasians to adopt the concept of “Manifest Destiny” that led to the extermination of Native Americans (relying on the rallying cry “The only good Indian is a dead Indian”) and to the wholesale subjugation of Africans as property.

I do not think Obama should have used the word. But I could see why you feel most were cool with his use, because the white owned media is fine encourages it.
