Barack Obama: A More Perfect Union


I have read Barack Obama's speech on race relations in America. I feel that it was a great speech addressing a topic most of us do not like to talk about. The thing that struck me is he choose not to blame those who feel, in his words, that "your [black American's] dreams come at my expense." Instead, he challenged us to rise above the distractions of those who would use our angers for their benefit which would include politicians of all races. Here is a link to the speech:
