Obama Tells NAACP Blacks Must Take Responsibility

08:21pm EST — Listen live to Barack Obama’s speech to the 99th NAACP convention in Cincinatti at http://www.naacpwebcast.com/naacp2008/ 

Barack Obama is conceding that he has angered some blacks by calling on them to show greater personal responsibility, but he says he’s not going to stop.

In remarks prepared for a speech Monday night to the NAACP convention in Cincinnati, the Democratic presidential candidate will say that while Washington has to provide more education and economic assistance, blacks must demand more of themselves.

He says that starts with parents guiding their children, turning off the TV and putting away video games.
