Minor protest interrupts Obama speech



ProtestAbout a dozen protesters started  chanting "Barack go home, Barack go home," interrupting Obama's speech at the BankUnited Center at University of Miami.

The crowd started to chant back: "Yes we can. Yes we can."

Obama tried to quell the protesters by asking them to allow him to have his say. University police surrounded the naysayers within two minutes and pulled them out of the stands.

The protesters brought homemade signs, some of which looked like they had the letters "KKK" on them, which confused Buzz because a number of the protesters were African-Americans.
