  1. As a young Afro American male it is great to hear such positive words. This is a great motivating quote that can enable a young Afro American adult to push any difficulties they have.

  2. I agree. This is a great quote, it should all motivate African American. It motivates me because it’s true. Us as young people have to realize that we can be somebody no matter what.
