Here is just one of many.. "We know that too many young men in our community continue to make bad choices. Growing up, I made a few myself. And I have to confess, sometimes I wrote off my own failings as just another example of the world trying to keep a black man down. But one of the things you've learned over the last four years is that there's no longer any room for excuses. I understand that there's a common fraternity creed here at Morehouse: "Excuses are tools of the incompetent, used to build bridges to nowhere and monuments of nothingness." We've got no time for excuses—not because the bitter legacies of slavery and segregation have vanished entirely; they haven't. Not because racism and discrimination no longer exist; that's still out there. It's just that in today's hyper-connected, hyper-competitive world, with a billion young people from China and India and Brazil entering the global workforce alongside you, nobody is going to give you anything you haven't earned. And whatever hardships you may experience because of your race, they pale in comparison to the hardships previous generations endured—and overcame."
The MSM has been skewering Obama to no end.
It seems a bit thick, for the right to be so self righteous now, after their network that encouraged rancher Cliven Bundy's armed standoff with law enforcers.
To be honest, the right has been just as guilty of race bating and rhetoric about killing. As for fast and furious, Obama was not the one who ended the law about selling Assault weapons.
Just as many as with Bush, and far far more were dead. It should be time to recognize that Obama did more harm to Al Qeada than republicans ever did.
I supported the cop that shot the thug in the middle of the street when he attacked him.
Well, lets be honest, if we really wanted to support the police, we would help them out with gun control.
I seem to recall Obama did that. He sure has pushed schooling. I find it hard to believe that Holder had such an influence as you suggest. The liberal media probably is mostly to blame.
I would really like to know how you would have handled the tensions arising from Ferguson and the chocking video. Racial tensions are very old in this nation, and can take drastic directions.
