A Prophetic Robert F. Kennedy Quote From 1968


He gave a speech to the Voice of America all around the world 40 years ago. And despite what was going on in the country, particularly in Alabama, Bobby Kennedy said this: Things are "moving so fast in race relations a Negro could be president in 40 years." This is in 1968, we're now in 2008. "`There's no question about it,' the attorney general said. `In the next 40 years a Negro can achieve the same position that my brother has.' ... Kennedy said that prejudice exists and probably will continue to ... `But we have tried to make progress and we are making progress. We are not going to accept the status quo.

- Robert F. Kennedy, Washington Post May 27, 1968

Robert Kennedy in my opinion was a man of sincerity. I believe John F. Kennedy as President was a good one, but Bobby was in his cabinet. Bobby was the catalyst of the Kennedy presidency. John had some mis-haps as president - the Bay of Pigs, affairs with Monroe and others and his dis-association with Sinatra.

If Bobby were not killed this country would have been in an incredible shape. Bobby would have brought back the strength of Truman with heart of Lincoln. Yes, Bobby was a great one.

So It happened exactly the way Robert F. Kennedy predicted. Barack Obama is 44th president of America.
