During the ceremony Obama scolded America for its transgressions.
He couldn’t help it.

“While it has taken a long time for Henry Johnson and William Shemin to receive the recognition they deserve, and there are surely others whose heroism is still unacknowledged and uncelebrated. So we have work to do as a nation to make sure that all of our hero’s stories are told. And we’ll keep at it no matter how long it takes.”


Not everyone appreciated the public scolding.
