MC American President: Video: Joint Session of Congress: President Lyndon Johnson Speech on Voting Rights
This was Lyndon Johnson at his best and not many other American politicians did this as well or better if any. Then President Lyndon Johnson when it came to speaking about civil-rights, voting-rights equal-rights all around. Because he got to the whole core of the debate by laying out what right does government at any level have to deny people their constitutional-rights based on race. Which was the whole point of the Civil-Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting-Rights Act of 1965 and the Fair-Housing Law of 1968. Legislation that got Bipartisan support for it in both chambers of Congress that wouldn't of been able to pass without that Bipartisan support. And the reason why these laws were so important was because of the fact that African-Americans and perhaps other. Racial-minorities were being denied their constitutional-rights in the South and perhaps other parts of the country. Because of their race and complexion and for no good reason, just because of their race and complexion.
