Nixon's Piano: Presidents and Racial Politics from Washington to Clinton. Steinfield, M. (1972). Our Racist Presidents: From Washington to Nixon. San Ramon, CA: Consensus Publishers. New York: Free Press. The Racial Attitudes of American Presidents, from Abraham Lincoln to Theodore Roosevelt. Garden City, NY: Doubleday. Waldstreicher, D. (2004).

of presidential racial politics throughout our history. Some of our presidents had the very best of intentions & guilt. Washington & Jefferson knew of the the inherent evil of slavery. The rather whimsical title, Nixon's Piano, refers to a minstrel show presented in the White House in 1970 with president Nixon on the piano. The author, Kenneth O'Reilly, sounds like a rather angry man in this indictment of presidential action & inaction for over two centuries. None of our presidents are safe from his scorn save two. Lincoln & LBJ get a pass. They talk piously but in the end did nothing that would jeopardize their wealth & lose their privileged position & fine life.

The Complete Book of . According to a Rasmussen poll conducted in 2007, six presidents-George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and John . . Presidents also gives the results of the 1982 survey, a poll of 49 historians conducted by the Chicago Tribune. A notable difference from the 1962 Schlesinger poll was the ranking of Dwight D. Eisenhower, which rose from 22nd in 1962 to 9th in 1982 President.

The book focuses on the most representative and commonplace attacks of a vitriolic and personal nature, detailing who instigated and trafficked in the attacks and how presidents, administrations, and political parties defended themselves. It also illustrates how honest disagreements about policy-such as FDR's New Deal, Ronald Reagan's Central America policies, George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq, and Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act-fueled expressions of hatred and condemnation.

As president, Nixon’s achievements included forging diplomatic ties with China and the Soviet Union, and withdrawing . troops from an unpopular war in Vietnam. However, Nixon’s involvement in Watergate tarnished his legacy and deepened American cynicism about government. Education and Early Political Career. Richard Milhous Nixon was born on January 9, 1913, in Yorba Linda, California. He was the second of five sons of Francis Anthony Nixon (1878-1956), who struggled to earn a living running a grocery store and gas station, and his wife, Hannah Milhous Nixon (1885-1967).

President Clinton and President Nixon both associated themselves with criminal actions. Both the presidents misled the American public, causing personal as well as professional problems. Also, President Nixon caused a scandal associated with Watergate, which ended up with his leaving the office.

Contains 41 documents associated with various presidents to provide documentary evidence concerning the racist politics that have been a characteristic of the American presidency and that have provided a very serious obstacle to the achievement of justice in America for Blacks, Chicanos, Indians, and other ethnic minorities.
