There is nothing wrong with this video. These young men are using the example of Obama as an inspiration to take responsibility for their own lives. There is nothing wrong with the teacher or the posting on the Internet. The problem is not young men like these who are finding inspiration and taking responsibility. Obama is supposed to be a hero to young blacks. What good is he if not that?
They should do more and add their lessons to the video. They can do math problems and also English and other subjects. Much of math can be set to rap. More than is realized.
Within reason, having political views is not bad in students. Apathy is worse. I think the students should get an A and the teacher a bonus. These are fine young men taking inspiration from their hero’s example of hard work and study in school. Obama graduated Harvard Law School by hard work. They are picking careers for themselves and using this as inspiration. What do people want them to do?

They should add a video on Mathematicians of the African Diaspora.
David Blackwell is still alive.
Black organizations need to do more to honor him and use his work and life as an inspiration. The reason they don’t is he did many of his accomplishments before the 1964 Civil Rights Acts. That doesn’t fit their narrative for the history of blacks in America.
The children singing, produced by Hollywood is truly scary.
The children singing is manipulation. The young men are at an age where some discipline for young males is not so bad. I hope they find inspiration to study and stay out of trouble. We need to stop immigration so that the labor force participation of black teenage boys goes back to what it was before the 1965 Immigration Act. The youth and future of young black men was taken from them by cynically substituting Hispanic immigration. They need something to inspire them. It would be better for the teens to switch to David Blackwell for inspiration.
In any case, this is quite different from “Sing for Change”, which reflects Obama’s cult. Obama now always refers to himself as we. He has become a god.
Obama “Sing for Change”
Obama campaign is trying to cover this up now. It is truly sick. Obama’s website is pushing how to indoctrinate kids.
Following is a brilliant discussion of leftism and its pure evil and cowardice:

This is what our schools are already. We are being genocided by immigration, its a math theorem. MSM are the same thing.
We investigated various cases of the island model with stochastic migration. If the population is infinite, the immigrants have a fixed gene frequency and the alleles are neutral, the gene frequency on the island converges to that of the immigrants.
Many “grown up” people can’t stand these words and call them Hitler. Even on some “right wing” blogs. The math is the truth. PC like the Obama video is so that people react to the math by calling it Hitler. It has happened already.
Black male teens video is not the best solution to be sure. That black teachers and school principals give into using this approach is disappointing. The real problem for black male teens is no jobs. Immigration took away their job chances. So they really are in trouble.
Its ironic that the Hollywood left that produced the Sing for Change are the ones behind immigration that did change black male teen labor force participation rates from high before 1965 to low today. Black male teens once had high labor force participation rates and real jobs to work into.
If we had kept our know-how here, we could have kept our manufacturing jobs here too and still had jobs for black men and boys, not to mention all men and boys. The Hollywood Left are precisely the ones who took the jobs away from these teens. Their video of their young children singing for change is a total lie. They are the ones behind black teenage unemployment and low employment.

Thus the Sing for Change video is a lie about what Hollywood liberals really did to black teenagers, took their jobs away is what they did, some change.
The school with the black teens is likely desperate. But whatever they do, they aren’t going to produce jobs for their kids when the Hollywood Left took them away by (1) Hispanic immigration (2) Know-how transfer of technology and manufacturing methods to non-Americans by educating foreign students here and by the whole immigration process which transfers manufacturing jobs outside the US.
Ed Morrissey says Sing for Change is creepier of the two.
