In 1963, President John F. Kennedy stated his case for making the Civil Rights Act, including Title VI, a reality.

“Simple justice requires that public funds, to which all taxpayers of all races, (colors, and national origins) contribute, not be spent in any fashion which encourages, entrenches, subsidizes or results in racial (color or national origin) discrimination.”
