NBC's Tom Brokaw said on Meet the Press that "there is a sense of real terror out there" amid racial tension and a series of terror attacks in the U.S. and abroad. "I grew up at the beginning of the civil rights movement. I really thought we would be a different country by now. We have elected an African-American president. There is a lot of progress. But the hostility out there is really unsettling to me. And it’s based on pigmentation. People are making judgments based on the color of skin. Bang like that, and it is wrong," he said.
