05/24/2011 SOC 348 Barack Obama: Speech on Race 2008 I thoroughly enjoy this speech every time I listen to it. President Obama reflects on how we are all the same and we need to not only recognize that, but act on it. Race is just a concept. It is an idea that we humans have created in our minds. Throughout history we have seen devastation and dreams shattered because certain races, ethnicities, and cultures have been discriminated against through slavery, lynching, etc. Barack Obama stresses on the fact that we are all truly one. But frankly, for so many people in this nation, it is hard to believe that. We have seen several improvements over time in order to make our world a better, more equal place, but there are still many, many major changes we need to make. The main problem we see today is our attitudes and behavior. There can be all the laws we want on thin pieces of paper, but sometimes that just does not cut it. We the people are what need to change. We all love our country dearly, but we must realize that everyone is a part of it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
