Change of Heart
I have had a change of heart.
One reason Johnson may have singed the Civil Rights act of 1964 is his students. In his speech 'The American Promise" Johnson stated that "even in their youth they knew the pain of prejudice" When faced with the question of weather or not to sign the bill he most likely remembered them and felt that signing it would help the next generation.
At the time when Lyndon B Johnson was running for president, he would not be swayed by the fact that sticking with his principal views on civil rights may cause him to lose the election. "Russell: You may do that but by god, its going to cost you the south and cost you the election. Johnson: If that's the price I have to pay I'll pay it gladly"
The last reason why LBJ signed was a change of heart. In The Chica.o Tribune, it says that "Lyndon did not directly oppose the civil rights bill". I think that when actually faced with the decisions Lyndon mainly remembered the class he taught at Welhausen Elementary school and thought how this could/could have benefited them in their childhood.
