LBJ was a Southern Democrat and he pushed through the Civil Right Act, with the support of Democrats and Republicans. It's true that the majority of Southern Democrats opposed the legislation. We can't and shouldn't pretend that's not true. But here's an article looking at the vote from a geographical perspective:
We also shouldn't forget Nixon's Southern Strategy, and it's pretty clear that the former Dixiecrats have become Republicans. Howiington isn't alone in taking the position below, but I never see people taking that position talking about the post-Nixon shift.

-------------------------------------Thought ControlI find it interesting that soon after a deranged racist goes into a predominantly black church and murders nine people, the conversation goes to a flag. A flag?Why?Is it because this hate-filled monster cannot be connected to any conservative?By all accounts, he is a leftist Nazi. He is a leftist. We have to change "the narrative." The left cannot be exposed as the "intolerant, racist haters" they are. The subject has to be changed to blame "the others."The Democrats were the slave owners who helped trigger the Civil War.After the war, it was the Democrats that started the Ku Klux Klan as the enforcement arm of the Democrats in the South.It was the Democrats that fought against the Civil Rights Act (1964).How can anyone in good conscience ever vote for a person who denies the history of the blatant racism of his own party?Oh! Yeah! We hate Republicans! Why?Because we are mind-controlled by robots who believe what television said. We don't have to actually think about anything. We have been told what to think.Roy Howington, Kamiah--------------------My response . . .Mr. Howington -The person that committed those nine murders in Charleston, South Carolina has repeatedly, and openly, associated himself with the "culture" (for lack of a more appropriate term) related to the Confederate flag and its racist heritage. It is for those reasons that the flag should be permanently removed from government buildings and placed in a museum.The person that committed those murders should be placed in solitary confinement for the remainder of his life, which should amount to about sixty years (as, according to the media, he recently turned 21), with his human contact restricted to gazing at photos of his victims. This punishment should be imposed . . . regardless of how he voted on election days.FYI, Mr. Howington: The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was fervently supported and enacted by then-President Lyndon Baines Johnson . . . a Democrat.-------------------------------------
