What would have happened if a white president or a white congressman woudl have said this?
Obama:"Young Men of Color" Need More Than Basketball and Rap
During a town hall event promoting his White House My Brothers Keeper initiative, President Obama encouraged young people to discover their passions to inspire themselves to work hard.
If nothings important to you, then youre not going to put in the work, Obama explained.
Part of the goal of his initiative, he explained, was to expose children to more things, not just the things that they see on television.
Part of the problem with young men of color is oftentimes the only thing they see to be passionate about is basketball or rap, he said. Obama added that he wanted to make sure that young people were exposed to graphic design, engineering, or law.

Too bad he didn't finish the thought. Young men need more than bball and rap. They need fathers and brothers who will be present in their lives and teach them right from wrong.
