Chris Paul Visits With President Barack Obama (Pics/Video)

Los Angeles Clippers' guard and NBA Players Association President, Chris Paul, and President Barack Obama met at the Walker Jones Education Campus in Washington DC yesterday to participate in a town hall focusing on the importance of Obama's 'My Brother’s Keeper Initiative,' a program aimed at providing boys and young men of color with mentoring, support networks, and the skills they need to find a good job or go to college and work their way into the middle class. The program also promises to reduce the dropout rates among minority youth. 

Love to see men of color do what they can to support the community. 

Check out the pics and video below.

I love to see this on the national stage. These programs are only successful when people 'participate', take FULL advantage of them. POTUS can only do so much.
