On #BlackLivesMatter:
We've [black people] been through so much for so many centuries, and we shall overcome this too.
Black lives matter, especially now, because there’s a fear in these communities that, you know, justice isn’t working for them. But it’s about balance. [...] The community has to understand the challenges of police, and the police have to understand the challenges of the community.”

Alex Griswold, "John Kasich: ‘Black Lives Matter, Especially Now’", Mediaite, 13 August 2015, http://www.mediaite.com/tv/john-kasich-black-lives-matter-especially-now/

The problem [reflected by the protests] lies not just with the police but the entire apparatus we call our system of criminal justice.
On Donald Trump:
[Student protesters] putting themselves out there so publicly, with their future on the line, is worthy of adult support.

We need to raise our voices, but we do not need to indulge in hate.

"Meet the Press - November 13, 2016", NBC News, 13 November 2016, http://www.nbcnews.com/meet-the-press/meet-press-november-13-2016-n683211.

I think that people are saying, 'Mr. Trump, we have come too far in this country fighting discrimination and bigotry. We’re not going back. And if you’re going to continue that effort, you’re going to have to take us on.'
