    Franklin D. Roosevelt and civil rights - Wikipedia

    In June 1941, Roosevelt issued Executive Order 8802, which created the Fair Employment Practice Committee (FEPC). It was the most important federal move in support of the rights of African-Americans between Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The President's order stated that the federal government would not hire any person based on their race, color, creed, or national origin. The FEPC enforced the order to ban discriminatory hiring within the federal government and in corporations that received federal contracts

    Of the modern Presidents, I think Woodrow Wilson was the most racist.

    Civil Rights moved backwards under his administration and Wilson politically embraced the klan

    That's really not true, RW. Roosevelt's conservative peers like the Tremendous Warren G. Harding spoke out openly even to liberal audiences in Birmingham AL in favor of civil rights.

    Black History Month: Warren Harding's Birmingham Speech


    In actuality, the commencement of hostilities during WWII was the IDEAL time to end liberal segregation in the military. The ranks of the US Army were largely empty. America had a very small army. 10 million new men entering the army who didn't know the Jim Crow Army would have been the ideal time to integrate.

    OK, Why were all those civil rights acts necessary? You seem to think YOU have all the answers, show the rest of us how smart you think you are.

    Actually, America wasn't that segregated at all, among conservatives. My grandfather served anyone with money at his store. Kids, regardless of race however, had to have a note if they were picking up cigarettes for their mums

    I'm surprised at your response. Thought you would name Dubya or Trump, both of whom are considered by the libs to be Literally Hitler.

    Asking men to volunteer for an integrated Army was not a wise move.

    FDR was primarily a politician who understood the limitations of the political environment in the 30s and 40s

    FDR stayed to center on Civil Rights and used Eleanor as his political proxy to advocate civil rights

    I don’t think Bush43 was racist.
    Trump is as racist as they come in this society. He doesn’t use the N Word, but everything else is fair game
    Wilson openly embraced the klan, Trump refuses to condemn them

    You were unique among libs then. The liberal consensus was that President Bush, as well as Mr. Romney and Mr. McCain were as racist as the day is long.

    President Trump ignores the Triple K, recognizing them as a group of only a few hundred- who are mostly law enforcement working under cover- and not important enough to recognize as they are just a distraction.

    Delivering addresses condemning the Triple K would vest the group with more importance than they deserve.
