Unfortunately, Mr B, you're right! D.K., I saw the video of LBJ making that statement, plus the records show that he voted against the 1957 Civil Rights Act, along with JFK. Let the truth be told!

The only reason President Kennedy selected LBJ to be his vice president was because Kennedy needed someone to carry the South for him. Kennedy was seen as a wealthy Catholic Yankee and that didn't fly in the 1960's South.They despised each other. Kennedy was going to sign the Civil Rights Bill into law but he was assassinated and LBJ ended up signing it instead. LBJ's bigger sin was sending 1,000's of troops to their deaths in Vietnam by extending a war he knew we'd never win.

This.. written by a Black Woman. .Dr Frances Rice Phd in US History
"Democrats have been running our inner-cities for the past 30 to 40 years, and blacks are still complaining about the same problems. More than $7 trillion dollars have been spent on poverty programs since Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty with little, if any, impact on poverty. Diabolically, every election cycle, Democrats blame Republicans for the deplorable conditions in the inner-cities, then incite blacks to cast a protest vote against Republicans.
In order to break the Democrats' stranglehold on the black vote and free black Americans from the Democrat Party's economic plantation, we must shed the light of truth on the Democrats. We must demonstrate that the Democrat Party policies of socialism and dependency on government handouts offer the pathway to poverty, while Republican Party principles of hard work, personal responsibility, getting a good education and ownership of homes and small businesses offer the pathway to prosperity."

LBJ is suppose to have said that.
LBJ did succeed in getting the Black Americans to vote primary democratic even though the democrats are the ones who kept them slaves and kept them in poverty in the south, that is why MLK was a republican.
LBJ pulled off the greatest con in political history.

Only democrats can point out racism, if you do it, that makes you a racist. Not sure of the logic there but that seems to be what some of these people think.

LBJ........most Dems don't know they are just exploited for their vote and kept in place aka poverty so that the left can maintain a voting base.......but hey what else can you do but give them what they vote for lol
