Barack Obama: Parenting is the Meaning of Community

By raincoaster

I’ll just let him say it, since he does it so well.

From his speech to the NAACP’s annual meeting, via Gawker.

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.

Amen.

    Holla. I taught in the South Side of Chicago this past year and it seemed like an awful lot of my students wanted to be basketball players or entertainers. Ironically, they were the short and/or least talented kids.

    Basketball is HUGE in the Philippines, where everyone is about 5′ 2″. Come to think of it, so is karaoke.
