July 1963
America;7/6/1963, Vol. 109 Issue 1, p6
The author comments on U.S. Republican leader, Everett McKinley Dirksen's rejection of President John F. Kennedy's appeal to give Negroes their freedom, which has been denied since the time of President Abraham Lincoln. He said that Dirksen had just let an opportunity for greatness slip away, knowing that only the vote of Republicans can remove the obstruction from bringing the civil-rights bill to the Senate. The author said that Dirksen is the loser by reducing the moral crisis to cloakroom politics.
