President Obama gave two commencement addresses in one to graduates of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga., recently. It would be easy for this conservative to critique the political and social elements of his speech. Instead, I choose to focus on the inspirational part.

African-American men in America need more role models and encouragement to counter the reality, reinforced by much of the media, of too much failure, crime, imprisonment, out-of-wedlock births, a disproportionate abortion rate and other social maladies affecting many in the black community.
