Stop using racism to excuse failure, Obama tells black America Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1200355/We-​using-poverty-
Barack Obama has delivered a thundering sermon to black America, urging parents to push their children to have dreams beyond simply becoming athletes or rap stars.

The U.S. President declared that racism and poverty were no longer good enough excuses for poor grades or lowered expectations.

Telling black parents that they must accept their responsibilities, he said: 'That means putting away the video games and putting our kids to bed at a reasonable hour.

It means attending those parent-teacher conferences, reading to our kids and helping them with their homework.'

Thursday night's speech was the first time Mr Obama has directly confronted the issue of race to a largely black audience since becoming America's first black president six months ago.

In an impassioned message to black children - his rising voice reminiscent of civil rights leader Martin Luther King - he said: 'No one has written your destiny for you.
