  • Hola Senor Johnson!
  • Lyndon Johnson was making an effort to push integration. You can see that many people approved of his efforts. These people approved his efforts more than they approved John F. Kennedy's.
  • In "Flawed Giant" it shows that Johnson would risk things for the sake of civil rights. Richard Russel warns him, saying "it's going to cost you the South and cost you the election." Lyndon Johnson answers back by saying "If that's the price I've got to pay, I'll pay it gladly." You can clearly see that regardless of what he would gain or lose, he would do whatever he could to give people their rights.
  • In "The American Promise", LBJ mentions how his students were poor and would usually come to school hungry. He saw the struggle first hand and this could have caused him to want to make these people's lives better
