I encourage everyone to actually take the time to watch the whole video of President Obama's message at Hampton University. Yes, I know its a little more than 1/2 hour of your day - but I promise its worth your time. As is so often the case when the rightwing goes apoplectic, the real truth here is actually much more powerful than their attempts at hatemongering.
Unfortunately, the only complete recording I can find comes from The Daily Caller. So please ignore their over-the-top attempts to sell their diseased product and listen to Obama talk about our neglect of "the quiet riots" of racism and poverty that require healing in this country.
What you'll hear is someone who not only understands and articulates the wound inflicted on this country by our history of racism, but someone who calls on us to unite and work together towards that end he talked about a year later...a more perfect union.
P.S. If you'd rather read the speech, The Grio has published the transcript.
