    while this is absolutely true...this would have been jfk's wish had he lived. almost as important as looking at the legislation involved, is looking at the way jfk, rfk,and his extended family treated and still work for the benefit of others. there are plenty of politicians who do what's "right ' when it's expedient for them. but look at the history that this family has established in helping and bettering the lives of others in so many fields. this must have been something that was taught and encouraged in them as kids. to me, this is the true meaning of "civil rights". the legal granting of those priviledges was obviously extremely important. but setting the example of how to actually treat others was just as important!
