Following the President's commencement address this past Sunday to Morehouse College graduates, the Washington Post published an article in which some criticized him for what they see as lecturing to black audiences about taking responsibility for their lives and communities.
What do you think of President Obama's message and tone to predominantly black audiences? Tell us in the comments section below.
Among those quoted in the article is Trevor Coleman, who worked as a speechwriter for a former Michigan governor. He told the newspaper that he and others "are beginning to grow weary" of President Obama's admonishments when addressing mostly black groups.
Coleman also pointed out who the President was speaking to on Sunday. He told the Washington Post: “What made it so gratuitous was this was Morehouse College! In the African American community, the very definition of a Morehouse man is someone who is a leader, who is taught to go out and make a difference in his community.”
The White House declined to comment, the article states.
