    "In late November 1963 the assassination of John F. Kennedy changed the political situation. The new president, Lyndon Johnson, utilized his experience in legislative politics and the bully pulpit he wielded as president in support of the bill. In his first address to Congress on November 27, 1963, Johnson told the legislators, "No memorial oration or eulogy could more eloquently honor President Kennedy's memory than the earliest possible passage of the civil rights bill for which he fought so long."


    Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Johnson and passage Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    By party and region

    Note: "Southern", as used in this section, refers to members of Congress from the eleven states that made up the Confederate States of America in the American Civil War. "Northern" refers to members from the other 39 states, regardless of the geographic location of those states.

    The original House version:

    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7%–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0%–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 145-9 (94%–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138-24 (85%–15%)
    The Senate version:

    Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5%–95%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0%–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 45-1 (98%–2%)
    Northern Republicans: 27-5 (84%–16%)
    I still don't understand this arguement nor the need for it. Let's say there were elements of racism 45 years ago. Nobody will deny there was. How does that make racism somehow O.K. today? Especially by those in Congress yelling "racism" the loudest? How is it that we can accept this unless it's really not about racism?

    The vote was on North/South lines -- not party lines. But it was Johnson's pro-civil-rights stand, and Goldwater's anti-civil-rights stand that pushed the Southern Democrats into the Republican party.

    Absolutely! It is just one more distraction to keep American voters eyes off the current economic factors that will decide Obama's failed Presidency.

    My numbers talk about the parties and how it worked out. Sorry, but hiding behind the civil rights bill of 1964 to say democrats aren't racists when the numbers actually show a different picture doesn't work.

    All of your posts have this Tomas Jefferson quote. I can't find it where I should find it. Will you help me confirm this quote that appears to have such modern American English language style? Also have you seen the following Tomas Jefferson quote "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." Again Thomas Jefferson supports your positions, but in a language style that is modern, but I guess he knew when it would be most applicable and used the proper style.

    We should look up some white brotherhood sites. Something just gives me the idea we're going to hear some very similar arguments against the 'real racists'. It just blows my mind.

    It's not about whether or not he fits into any stereotype. It is a question of how he could be completely oblivious to things that are part of every day life for every black person in the country... The reality is that people fabricate identities for online forums sometimes, so I don't automatically assume people are what they say they are. Who knows, he could really be black. But it seems like a longshot to me given that he appears to be under the impression that racial discrimination doesn't exist. If somebody on here claims to be from San Francisco, but then they make a series of impassioned posts about how earthquakes are a myth, I'll know they aren't from San Francisco too.
