LBJ taught at an all-Mexican school in Cotulla, TX as his first job. He also witnessed social injustices outside of school, Including labeled water fountains and other whatnot. This had "enlightened" him about anti-rights. So he was one step closer to approving the bill.
When LBJ went into politics, he began to express his opinion about civil rights. Slowly and surely, people began to agree. Then, when the presidential election came around, he got enough votes to get into office. After that, he could make his big move that would change history.
From personal experiences, LBJ had attained the knowledge of discrimination. But only that wouldn't be enough to get himself to approve it. He needed motivation; what would he get out of it? The answer was simple. A better America for all. So he approved the Act, and slowly, things came to be the way they were meant to be.
