Wednesday during her speech at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in New York City, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton discussed racism in America, naming both positive accomplishments and things yet to do going forward.
After rattling off a list of accomplishments of African-Americans from Jackie Robinson in professional baseball to Barack and Michelle Obama in the White House, Clinton declared there was more work to be done.
“As you know so well, the last few years also have laid bare to deep fault lines in America,” Clinton said. “They’ve revealed how frayed our bonds of trust and respect have become. Despite our best efforts and our highest hopes, America’s long struggle with racism is far from finished. And we are seeing that in this election.”
