“I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.” – Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961

“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” – Lyndon B. Johnson (1963)

“I’ll have those n**gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” – Lyndon B. Johnson confiding in two governors why the passage of his civil rights and welfare legislation was important (1963)
