Who Said It? Part VI

In 1986. Who said it?

On US Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions:
“Mr. Sessions is a throwback to a shameful era which I know both black and white Americans thought was in our past. It is inconceivable to me that a person of this attitude is qualified to be a US attorney, let alone a US Federal Judge. He is, I believe, a disgrace to the Justice Department, and he should withdraw his nomination and resign his position.”
