14. I want to know if he talked about anything other than education at the Urban League...
Bells go off in my head whenever someone immediately highlights that inner city African Americans are undereducated.

Sure shitty education is a big component of inner city blight, but it's only one component of general neglect on the part of state and federal government. Whenever someone immediately highlights education, without mentioning healthcare, public works, etc. my racist-o-meter goes off.
