Obama's NAACP Speech

Embedded video from CNN Video


“We’ve got to say to our children, Yes, if you’re African-American, the odds of growing up amid crime and gangs are higher. Yes, if you live in a poor neighborhood, you will face challenges that someone in a wealthy suburb does not have to face. That’s not a reason to get bad grades, that’s not a reason to cut class, that’s not a reason to give up on your education and drop out of school,” he said. “No one has written your destiny for you. Your destiny is in your hands – and don’t you forget that.”


Yessss! Tell it how it really is, President Obama! Too bad that the people who really needed to hear this message, more than likely were not in attendance of the NAACP's 100 year anniversary...
