Granted, it is about 37 minutes long. But it is one of the finest that I have ever heard. It is also one of the rarest, in the sense that a political candidate, running for the president of USA, no less, could ever dare to make. It is also rare to find even non-politicians confront the issue of race so effectively on the face. It is also one of the best references for those learning about public speech.
And curiously, if you replace black/white with upper-caste/lower-caste, it addresses as an analogy the same problems that India faces, and offers the same path of positiveness that our country needs, and what has been missing all these years because of our universally hated politicians.
Regardless, of how you view Barack Obama, regardless of whether you are interested in American politics, or even specifically the 2008 elections, you should listen to this.
