If anyone has been riding for the minority community, it’s definitely Bernie Sanders. The presidential candidate has been fighting for the rights of minorities dating back to the Civil Rights movement. He’s not President just yet, but we would love to see that happen.

Lyndon B. Johnson may not have strayed away from ignorant ways of thinking, but the President was the one who signed off on the Voting Rights Act of 1965, giving all minorities the right to vote equally in all states.

John F. Kennedy, while his presidency was unfortunately short-lived, wanted the best for all, and advocated for the minorities during the Civil Rights movement.
