Best Answer

The US Commision on Civil Rights was formed in 1957, and was not a part of any Civil Rights Act. In fact it helped to bring these Act into being. The Commision was doing well until President Reagan fired the Chairman in 1981, replacing a liberal with a conservative. Any nonpartisanship was destroyed by this act.
