I think a little more research is in order. Given the social and political environment of the 40's through the 60's, I am not surprised by JFKs racist point of view. I think what is more important is to look at what change he brought about in American society to essentially spark the civil rights movement to a flame. Yes he hemmed and hawed about supporting the movement, but he educated himself to become more enlightened. Something which is entirely admirable. We should have moved on in our society from this ignorant hatred and fear of people who are not exactly like us. In our day and age, there is no excuse to not spend time questioning our beliefs. What you are putting out here is simply misinformed and supports your agenda, which I can only guess at, given other articles you have written. This is more ignorance and short sighted, lazy journalism. Which gives the whole profession a bad name.
