Not There Yet

"Some people like to point to the fact that we have minorities in the Congress, that we have an African-American president. But we are not there yet," said Rep. John Lewis at a rally on the Supreme Court to protest the Voting Rights Act challenge. "We witnessed the long lines during the past election. We witnessed gerrymandering and trying to make it hard and difficult for many people to participate in the democratic process. We are not there yet."
