President Barack Obama was in town on Sunday to deliver the commencement address at Morehouse, the historically black, all-male college in Atlanta.
Mr. Obama was his usual, arrogant, cocky self as he delivered the Commencement Address. Obama received a polite smattering of applause when he told the graduates that they can no longer use the color of their skin as an excuse for making bad decisions.
Without elaborating, Mr. Obama said men in the black community continue to make bad choices. Obama, who is biracial, said he, too wrote off his failings as just another example of the world trying to keep a black man down. "Excuses are tools of the incompetent used to bridge bridges to nowhere and monuments of nothingness," he said to another smattering of polite applause.
