Fifty years ago today President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act hoping it would dry up the toxic spring of our prejudices. Although I am pleased that we have made progress in dealing with the diversity that the American melting pot is supposed to be, I am disappointed that there are so many avenues that remain closed. When so many members of our Ohio families were immigrants, it is shameful that we cannot come to a solution to the problems we have guaranteeing others the rights that are granted by our Constitution. I hope on this anniversary our Congress can take notice and continue moving forward with what their predecessors started.
Happy Anniversary Civil Rights Act,
