From everything I have read the Kennedy's were not big civil rights advocates. The closest they ever got to a Back person was the servants that worked in their house.
Coulter is right. They cared more about politics than they did about civil rights for Blacks.
I also notice that no one wants to talk about Bill Clinton and his good buddies Orval Faubus and J William Fulbright who were two of the biggest racist segregationist of that time.
