Ralph Yarbrough, is a unheralded civil
rights advocate. As U.S. Senator he did more for civil rights than LBJ.
Although LBJ received most of the credit.

While passing out thanks how about a little support for the party JFK reached out to in order to get the 1964 Civil Rights Act passed. Before his death he had a meeting with LBJ and told LBJ what they needed in order to get this bill passed. They did this with Everet Dirksen. History and my memory only tells of this I have never heard it mentioned anywhere else.

How about God bless EVERYONE and not single out different groups? Unfortunately Daniels doesn't think along those lines,.

Daniels is such a funny person.... He claims that Trump is a divider and yet loved the one who did nothing but divide this nation from 2009 till he left office in Jan 2017.... He thinks that LBJ was a great President and yet has no clue about what Johnson was all about.... It wasn't the demon-crats that got the civil rights act passed as they were against it, but to know that you might have to know REAL history and that is something that so many do not know....
