Says that only 1% progress per year toward integration in the South and that it will take 93 more to complete. But we don't have that much time and can't wait that long. The administration has done some things in civil rights and we are happy about that, but the President has not given the leadership the enormity of the problem demands and has retreated on many of his campaign promises.
