Obama on activism

Standard

Fascinating piece. Presented without much commentary. Emily S. Rueb and Derrick Bryson Taylor write:

“This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically ‘woke’ and all that stuff,” Mr. Obama said. “You should get over that quickly.”

“The world is messy; there are ambiguities,” he continued. “People who do really good stuff have flaws. People who you are fighting may love their kids, and share certain things with you.”
