In front of a room of young men from the My Brother's Keeper Alliance in Oakland, California, former President Barack Obama and NBA star Stephen Curry talked about the challenges facing young minority men, being a role model, and how far some people go to hide their insecurities.
"We live in a culture where our worth is measured by how much money we have and how famous we are," said Obama, according to Newsweek. "I will tell you, at the end of the day, the thing that will give you confidence is not that. I know a lot of rich people that are all messed up."
The room laughs as Obama appears to take aim at wealthy rappers and athletes who spend extravagantly. "If you are really confident about your financial situation, you probably are not going to be wearing an 8-pound chain around your neck. Because you know, 'Oh I got bank,' I don't have to show you how much I got. I feel good."
Then he delivers the KO: "If you are very confident about your sexuality, you don’t have to have eight women around you twerking."
Even Stephen Curry laughs as Obama continues, "You seem stressed that you gotta be acting that way. Because I've got one woman who I'm very happy with. "
Did you hear that, mumble rappers? Obama is DONE!
