President Obama launches “My Brother’s Keeper” Program

Published March 1, 2014 by sheezacoldpiece

President Barack Obama announced a new initiative to put minority boys and men on the road to success. It’s called “My Brother’s Keeper” and hopes to build on the successes of programs like KIPP High school in the Bronx, where 100 percent of the senior class has applied to college. Major Garrett reports.

Of course President Obama is receiving all sorts of backlash from conservatives against anything the President does.  I happen to think this a great effort and step in the right direction to aide many minority men who face an entire different set of obstacles the majority know nothing about, or fail to recognize.  Here’s to this initiative and it’s success.
