"When I was coming up in school in Compton, California, you had 28 kids in class who wanted to learn, and 2 kids acting like knuckle heads. Today you seem to have 28 kids in class trying to act like knuckle heads and 2 kids desperately trying to learn. To quote my friend and mentor Quincy Jones, it takes 20 years to change a culture, and over the last 20 years we made dumb sexy. Over the next 20 years we need to make smart sexy again."
