On Education:

“We created the first-ever White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans.”

“…the numbers of working poor who don’t have health care who are African American or Latino are higher than the general population…the 30 million people who are going to be able to get health care for the first time…are going to be African Americans”

Plus, the Magazine’s Ebony Editor-in-Chief Amy Dubois Barnett had this to say about the fierce couple:

“The fact that I believe in President Obama’s values, policies, intelligence and now, experience, I will vote for him because I want to have four more years during which my son sees someone who looks like him leading this country and the world.

And I was able to point to a Black man and tell my Black son, ‘That’s because he’s the most powerful man in the whole world,’ brought tears to my eyes.”
