Whatever LBJ used to describe Black Americans is unimportant, he fought for and had the civil rights bill signed. That is his true mettle;Let's not forget the term that LBJ used to refer to our fellow black Americans even though he signed the legislation, or forget that it was Al Gore Sr. that worked to block it's passage. Al Sr. was very cozy and financially supported by Armand Hammer, who was a devout communist. Senator Byrd was no fan of the black Americans as well, but the democrats kept him around until he molded. His white sheet would have been the most appropriate outerwear for him to have been buried in. The democrats have embraced hate throughout their history. Just disagree with one to this day and see how tolerant they are of you.
Al Gore Sr tried to block the civil rights bill. True. But that was in 1964, and thanks in part to his son Al jr., reversed his view on Blacks. You seem to automatically transfer Al sr's anti-civil rights stand on to his son Al jr. Why that implication? Al jr may have a lot of wrongs, but anti-Black's not one of them.
The democrats have embraced some form of hate until just about the middle of FDR's term, and with southern democrats until the 60s.The there was the famous switch, and Repubs , as has been shown, became the intolerant ones, with JFK and,like it or not, LBJ in the forefront of civil rights. Would you term Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, southern democrats btw, as having embraced hate throughout their terms and history?
Armand Hammer a communist? Is Sunday joke day? Yes, he had relations with the USSR - mostly on oil deals and works of art, a relationship fully endorsed by presidents dem and repub alike as it kept the door ajar. Hammer was a 100% American capitalist entrepreneur whose bottom line was profits profits profits and having to deal with the devil or Communists to achieve his profit goals would certainly not have deterred him.
Robert Byrd was a racist, a KKK even. But do tell us what and who he was in the last half of his career as senator.
