    This is all well and good (great recital of a poem) but he's going down the confused route of assuming his speech is a needed response to a racism which doesn't exist. Why always crowbar the racist element in there? He creates further divide if anything!!

    I don't think any black would ever pass Harvard recruiting tests, without that ensuring parity for every race. Even better student's aren't allowed in, just for sake of racial equality…

    And then you get to the real work environment and all the above means shit. Sometimes these speeches are self indulgent at best. May the hating commence…..

    Everyone is God's child, the may not be meant to be brilliant but they are meant to shine; lift off… "Education is not the equalizer, rather the sleep that precedes the American Dream."
    Very nice. The African-American community needs more leaders like this. Heck, we all need more leaders like this.

    What? Can someone summarize what his main point was, in one sentence please? Stupid foreigner here, who didn't understand this eloquent language fully enough. I loved it though. Really attractive how someone can speak so refined.
