Bronx Students Watch and Respond to Obama Race Speech

Wow, this is truly an inspiration. To see a Bronx high school class sit down, watch and discuss Barack Obama's transformational and candid speech on race in America is illuminating and remarkable. I have heard several anecdotes of similar class discussions and teachers using Obama's speech as an icebreaker with which to tackle race over the last few weeks.

How can we not want a President who inspires such feelings of openness and introspection is us?
