Interrupted mid-speech by hecklers, with banner reading “What about the black community, Obama?”

A protester later challenges Obama on issues important to the black community, such as the Jena Six and Sean Bell shooting.

Obama insists he has spoken out on those topics, but says–“I may not have spoken out in the way you would have wanted.”
