Well, it's obvious why this speech that President Obama will deliver to America's schoolchildren tomorrow would be objectionable to God-fearing, right-leaning, white suburbanites. I mean, why would we want to teach our children that working hard, taking responsibility for one's education and life, not making excuses, and rising above difficult circumstances are worthy aims?
Sigh. At least the kids in my neighborhood schools, almost all of whom are African-American and poor, will get to hear it. I doubt there was a single parent who objected.
