CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP)-- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has told University of North Carolina graduates that last week's gay marriage vote shows there is still a lot of work to be done for civil rights in this country. Bloomberg spoke Sunday to thousands of graduates at Kenan Stadium. Bloomberg told them Americans have slowly understood since this country was founded that if the government can deny freedom to one person, it can deny freedom to everyone. The mayor says every generation has brought more freedom to this country, and he expects the latest generation to continue to the work, especially in light of last Tuesday's vote approving a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Bloomberg also says the university's motto, "Light and Liberty," should be the defining spirit of this century. (Copyright 2012 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
