59. Here's One Example
Q: You said recently, "Dr. King's dream began to be realized when Pres. Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act. It took a president to get it done." Critics claim you're saying Martin Luther King's speeches were a nice sentiment, but it took a white president to get blacks to the mountaintop.

Try a Google search on "it took a white president" and you see several essays come up from people who decided that was what HC was really saying. One of those essays is on BO's official website, in the "African American" section.
