President Obama Talks About his Legacy on Race Relations – Video

President Obama has cut short his trip abroad to come home and address the high tension between the black community and those hired to protect and serve, the police. But while the President visited Poland, he was asked to talk about what his legacy on Race Relations in America will be after he leaves office.

“More than anything, what I hope is that my voice has tried to get all of us, as Americans, to understand the difficult legacy of race; to encourage people to listen to each other; to recognize that the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow and discrimination didn’t suddenly vanish with the passage of the Civil Rights Act, or the Voting Rights Act, or the election of Barack Obama; that things have gotten better, substantially better, but that we’ve still got a lot more work to do… We plant seeds, and somebody else maybe sits under the shade of the tree that we planted.”

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
