Obama Hopes Grandchildren Not Subjected to ‘Constant’ Discrimination

President Barack Obama hopes that his grandchildren are not subjected to “constant” racial biases that will make them feel as if America is not their home.

In an extensive interview with BET about race relations, policing, Eric Garner, and Ferguson, the country’s first black president said he hopes America can make more progress on race relations because, “I want my grandsons to be treated like anybody else’s grandsons.”

“I don’t want them to be subjected to the kind of constant bias that makes them feel as if this is not their home,” Obama said. 

Obama also said he hoped that his grandchildren feel safe in their neighborhoods and do not lose trust in institutions that are in place “to supposedly serve and protect them” because of bad experiences with police officers.
