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?
