So, graduates

毕业生们

I hope that you understand that this day is not just the culmination of your own dreams

我希望你们理解 今天并不只是你们自己梦想的实现

but the realization of the dreams of so many who came before you

今天同时也是很多前人梦想的实现

And you should be so proud, and so happy, and so excited about your futures

你们应当对自己的未来感到自豪 高兴和激动

But what you shouldn't be is satisfied

但你们不能够就此满足

See, because

原因在于

while it is a wonderful thing that all of you are here today

没错 你们今天都取得了很棒的成就

we have to ask ourselves

但你们需要想想

what about all those geniuses who never get this chance

那些没能得到这种机会的人们

I'm talking about the young people from right here in New Orleans

我说的是新奥尔良以及全国范围内

and across the country who aren't part of a commencement like this one today

没有机会参加这种毕业典礼的年轻人

kids no different from all of us, kids who never made it out of high school

他们很多人同我们一样 但却没有成功读上大学

The fact is that today, the high school graduation rate for black students is improving

现如今 黑人学生的高中毕业率正在改善

but it is still lower than just about any other group in this country

但相比国内其它群体仍然较低

And while college graduation rates have risen for nearly every other demographic

尽管所有群体的大学毕业率数字都在提高

including African American women

包括非裔美国女性

the college graduation rate for African American men has flatlined

但非裔美国男性的大学毕业率却仅与之前持平

See, and the thing is, when our young people fall behind like that in school

年轻人一旦在学校里落后

they fall behind in life

就会在生活中落后

Last year, African Americans were more than twice as likely as whites to be unemployed

去年 非裔美国人的失业率比白人高一倍有余

They were almost three times as likely to live in poverty

贫困率是白人的三倍

And they were far more likely to end up in prison or be the victims of violent crimes

成为暴力犯罪受害者或罪犯的比率也比白人高很多
