You've shown yourself to be just another Jesse Jackson. Just as it was when Pres. Kennedy spoke those words, the Federal Government was the problem. Kennedy was stymied by a group of Senators and Representatives, most were, Southern Democrats. The Federal Government is never the answer and you Senator are part of the Federal Government; consequently, you aren't the answer you are, in fact, part of the problem. With few exceptions, the discrimination in this country is fueled by equal opportunity laws and political correctness that doesn't allow debate and solutions to our problems. The citizens of this country would be a hell of a lot happier if you 'Federal employees' (elected, appointed and hired) would attempt to solve real problems like unemployment, reining in rogue Departments (the IRS and the EPA for example) and energy independence than attempting to legislate their speech and opinions.
