RealClearPolitics reported Obama’s quote along with a video clip of that specific statement, which transcript read as:

“When you’re dealing with something as deeply rooted as racism or bias in any society you’ve got to have vigilance but you have to recognize that it is going to take some time, and you just have to be steady.”

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize has not improved race relations while in office, Americans say. In a recent poll conducted by Bloomberg, 53% say that it has actually worsened under Obama’s presidency.
