President Obama brings his daughters out to SELMA


Obama said he thinks his daughters (Sasha and Maliya) appreciate that people made sacrifices so that life would be easier for them. He noted that they live in the White House with their grandmother, who he said remembers what it was like living in a segregated setting on the South Side of Chicago. ‘Part of what I want Malia and Sasha to understand is that this is an unfinished project,’ he said, referring to simmering racial tensions that flared up following the police-involved killings last year of black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and Staten Island, New York. Neither of the officers involved was charged with committing any crimes.
