In Final Speech, Loretta Lynch Talks About “Hatred”


In her final speech as Attorney General, Loretta Lynch focused on hate.

Lynch spoke about the “waves of hatred, waves of intolerance and injustice that blow in this country.”

She made the speech at 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, the location of the infamous 1963 church bombing responsible for the deaths of four young African-American girls.

In her speech, which took place on the eve of Martin Luther King Jr Day., Lynch said:

“I know that while our accomplishments should make us proud, they must not make us complacent. We cannot stop. We have to work. I know that in our pursuit of a brighter future, we still face headwinds. We still face oppositions. We see it. Waves of hatred, waves of intolerance and injustice that are still blowing in this country, and they seem to grow stronger the more that we achieve.”

Lynch then delves into the topic of Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream and her “hopes” for the future:

“Dr. King’s dream and all that has flowed from it is at risk like never before. But I’ve seen people speaking out, and marching, and organizing, and gathering in the time-honored tradition that has made this country stronger. … That’s what I’ve seen. And in their cries of justice, I’ve heard their belief that it can be attained.”
