Our president said this today at an NAACP anniversary event, as quoted in a New York Times story:
They might think they’ve got a pretty jump shot or a pretty good flow, but our kids can’t all aspire to be LeBron or Lil Wayne. 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 of America.
What kind of effect do you expect Obama’s speech will have on black families? On all families?
