On Friday, Vice President Mike Pence held a listening session with leaders in the black community. While speaking at the Covenant Church in Pittsburgh, Pence said he was inspired by the testimonies given.

He also said he’s encouraged by the progress made in America, but is now challenged to build on it.

The vice president agreed that racism is not a skin issue, it’s a sin issue.

“The church has always played a central role in our march toward a more perfect union,” stated Pence. “You cannot understand the abolition of slavery without understanding the moral voice of the church in the generations that preceded that great conflict.”

The vice president was accompanied by Scott Turner, who has been tapped as the Executive Director of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council.
