On July 16, 2009, President Barack Obama addressed the 100th Anniversary Celebration of the NAACP. One very power quote he stated was:
“They might think they’ve got a pretty good jump shot or a pretty good flow, but our kids can’t all aspire to be the next LeBron or Lil Wayne,” he said. “I want them aspiring to be scientists and engineers, doctors and teachers, not just ballers and rappers. I want them aspiring to be a Supreme Court justice. I want them aspiring to be president of the United States.”
What do you think about this statement and his entire speech to the NAACP?
