There’s no question that Lyndon Johnson, despite championing the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 and signing it into law, was also a sometime racist and notorious vulgarian who rarely shied away from using the N-word in private. For example, he reportedly referred to the Civil Rights Act of 1957 as the “nigger bill” in more than one private phone conversation with Senate colleagues. And he reportedly said upon appointing African-American judge Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court, “Son, when I appoint a nigger to the court, I want everyone to know he’s a nigger.” (SNOPES)
Notice that Snopes doesn’t say it isn’t true, they say it is “unproven”.
If LBJ wasn’t a Democrat would they be trying so hard to rescue him from his own actions, words, & reputation? He didn’t really feel that way? He only said it to manipulate Southerners? Like when Hillary Clinton kissed the leader of the KKK?
Here are the claimed quotes from Lyndon B. Johnson (warning language):
Lyndon Baines Johnson 1963… “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference… I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years”.
JFK was assassinated in 1963 and he was intent on doing much more for the black community than LBJ did, just saying…
