America’s ‘first black president’ admits he failed “African-American males”
A Great Clinton Regret: Race Disparity

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former President Clinton said Tuesday that one of his "great regrets" was failing to do more to bridge the economic and social gaps between white and black people in the United States…

"The idea that I live in a country I spent my lifetime trying to make better, but there's still hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of people, most of them people of color, who will die before their time, drop out of school, go to prison, never have a chance to live their dreams, is galling and painful to me," Clinton said… [Ed. – One can only imagine how painful is it to actual black people]

"I don't know how you have a great country that is a beacon of hope for the world for peace and freedom and democracy if you let a third of any group of people wind up going to prison sometime in their lives," said Clinton. [Ed. – Yeah, we should probably wait and put criminals in prison after they’re dead]
