WASHINGTON (AP) The White House says 1 million low-income high school students will receive free internet access under President Barack Obama‘s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative for minority males.

The Sprint Corp. will provide students who can’t get on the internet at home with free tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices, and four years of service.

Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure says the goal is to complete distribution within five years.

Obama launched “My Brother’s Keeper” in 2014. The program is among the topics the president will discuss Tuesday in Greensboro, North Carolina, during a forum hosted by “The Undefeated.” The ESPN website explores the intersection of race, sports and culture. ESPN is broadcasting the forum Tuesday night.

Obama plans to campaign in Greensboro for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and North Carolina Democrats.

    Again with handouts and entitlements! Bet their raggedyass parents have a cadillac, 22 inch rims, weave, a bigass watch, a pair of Jordans, and keep Hennessy and bud in the house- but they can’t afford internet access?
