If you are confused about who voted the #CivilRightsAct into law, here's the historical record.

SPOILER ALERT: It was the party of #LBJ--the Democrats. govtrack.us/congress/votes…
Unlike modern-day racist Southern #GOP leader @SenateMajLdr McConnell, who blocked #SCOTUS hearings for #MerrickGarland because he felt @POTUS44 wasn't owed a full 4yr term, #LBJ signed the most sweeping anti-racist and anti-poverty legislation in US history.
#CivilRightsAct
Just five months after the #CivilRightsAct was passed, the country voted overwhelmingly to return #LBJ to the White House, 49 weeks after the assassination of #JFK.

Voters thought LBJ was far more capable of holding the nation together amidst growing racial and societal strife.
