Although President Obama has callously abandoned his impoverished half-brother, George Obama - who lives in absolute destitution in a slum in Kenya - Mr. Obama nevertheless launched his "My Brother's Keeper" initiative on Thursday calling on philanthropists and businesses to ignore his own callousness, and to create, among other things, more economic opportunities for "young men of color".
"It doesn't take that much [to lend assistance]," the President said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House, "but it takes more than we're doing now. And that's what My Brother's Keeper is all about." It's all about not following the President's example.
Incidentally, the President's half-brother was not in attendance for the ceremony.
