Tragedy In Charleston, South Carolina June 22, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT

I was also involved in helping to end segregated housing in Chicago. It is clear to me that over that period of time this Nation has come a very long way, but it is also clear to me—and I think to the majority of our people—that we still have a long way to go."
