He got excused, for all he did to enslave blacks once again. Give them a wafer, but never fill them up

Exactly. I remember LBJ. Uncouth, nasty man but a master politician. He saw an opportunity and he took it.

Not just blacks, but this is how ALL politicians control everybody. As soon as a group gets a little better....on comes the controls. Like Russell Means said so well, 'welcome to the reservation.'

LBJ will go down as one of the worst POTUS in history, He started the destruction of the black family unit with the welfare state and escalated the Vietnam war, killing thousand's of young men. I hope he burns in hell.

The N word was commonly used back then by whites all over the nation, a nd very commonly in the south, but it did not automatically imply hostility to the race. If Johnson had wanted to be derogatory, he had a wealth of more then-offensive names he could have used.

"Negro" was the more polite term back then, and is very seldom used today. Johnson used that word in formal speech, but when he was off the record, he lapsed back to the slang he had heard and used all his life.

Other southerners didn't bother with such formalities, and used the N word freely in their speech, both in public and in private, along with using the word in writing.

A very good example of a politician who deliberately used the word derogatorily was George Wallace, who used it often in his campaign speeches when he was running for President. He also used it freely as Governor in public.
Wallace himself held no ill will toward people of color, and before he died in the 90's he made many apologies to black folks for his politically motivated offensive speech.

Those times are gone. The nation now isn't as white, Christian, or conservative as it once was, and like everything else, what may be acceptable to one generation is not to a later generation.

What words do you use in regards to race, Bent? In my case, I do not permit the word to be said in my presence, whether in my home or in public, and say so whenever I hear it.
the point wasn't the word used. the point of the post was Great Society and other social programs and how is that working out for you. From where I sit, they have done little good for anyone but the politicians.
