You need to hear this speech

Obama’s fantastic speech from Philadelphia on race and the steps we need to take to get America on the path to a better future.

It’s 37 minutes long, but it’s well worth the time it takes to watch it. Whether or not you’re an Obama fan, this is a speech too important to miss.

I was amazed, listening to NPR, that one commentator felt Obama didn’t take enough risks with this speech. I thought it was an insane comment – it’s the most direct admission I’ve heard from a politician that all is not a-ok in American race relations. And that it’s EVERYONE’s problem to admit it and solve it. I was genuinely impressed. I hope this guy’s for real because I’m starting to believe…


I’ve seen some press on it this morning that counts it already as one of the greatest speeches in American history. Obama rocks…the depth of his character is amazing and uncommon.
