LBJ Quote - did he actually say this?
“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One
Did LBJ really say that? I can't find any objective authoritative sources to back this up..
See this Reddit thread for an insightful dissection of the high probability and context of the quote: https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/2088gl
The source of the quote is Robert Kessler's book "Inside the White House". The guy is known for scooping tabloid sounding but eventually 100% true stories (Secret Service scandals). Whether you trust him on that quote or not is your call - the book doesn't list any sources that a historian would consider impeccable; but as far as I'm aware he's never been proven wrong.
Thanks, DVK! Here's a link with this quote from a review of his book: http://www.amazon.com/Inside-White-House-Kessler/product-reviews/1433244985/ref=cm_cr_dp_text?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=byRankDescending#RCU0REO851XT6
Ronald Reagan secretly took orders from aliens. Prove me wrong!
@SamIam - are you a well known journalist known for many conspiracy sounding but true scoops and access to people in the know?
