This Day In History

Bill O’Reilly shares a clip from 57 years ago when President John F. Kennedy addressed the country about race:

“The heart of the question is whether all Americans are to be afforded equal rights and equal opportunities, and whether we are going to treat our fellow Americans as we want to be treated. If an American, because his skin is dark, cannot eat lunch at an American restaurant open to the public, if he cannot send his children to the best public school available. If he cannot vote for the public officials who represent him, if in short he cannot enjoy the full and free life which all of us want, then who among us would be content to have his skin changed and stand in his place? Who among us would then be content with the consuls of patience and delay?”
