“I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated,” Bush, 70, tells PEOPLE in an interview for the new issue of the magazine on newsstands Friday. ... "I didn’t feel like speaking out before because I didn’t want to complicate the job and I’m not going to this time.
