How does one business or individual in North Texas describe the population of the entire state which consists of various regional differences?  

 


And yet you evaded the question I posed.

 

How can you call this action by this restaurant racist while calling the CONFEDERATE STATUES that honor the war fought to continue slavery (the ownership of BLACK men, women, and children) historical?

 

AREN'T THEY BOTH RACIST OR BOTH HISTORICAL??????

IMO, just your's and Tex's posts are "trolling" as none of them are about the topic....just attacking the poster.  If you don't like the topic, why post to it?  Maybe the "chum" is too much to resist.


And you couldn't resist posting about others either?  Isn't the topic about a subject that the poster is generalizing about?  The poster in the past has admitted he has only been in the state once when passing through. 

 

This topic reflects one of Will Rogers' sayings about all he knows is from reading newspapers.  How does one business or individual in North Texas describe the population of the entire state which consists of various regional differences?  

 

Further, the posts has to do with the content of the topic itself.  And what is your post if not the same as you accuse others of?

Have to agree Jim, some people has nothing to do but troll.  As the saying goes, 'an idle mind is the Devil's workshop'.  A shame how this site has degenerated from what it was years ago.

 

Nothing further needs to be said.


Ditto!

 

Merry Christmas to you and your family, stay safe!

I find it interesting that the same responders to my post that found this sign to be racist rather than "historical"; find the CONFEDERATE STATUES built to honor those that fought for the continuation of slavery (ie. ownership of BLACK men, women, and children) and committed treason to do so.....

 

THAT THEY FIND THOSE STATUES HISTORICAL RATHER THAN RACIST.

 

INCONSISTENT............

The point is that people in TEXAS don't think of the caricature as racist; they think of it as historical and thus; it continues to remain attached to the wall.


To the contrary, THE PEOPLE of TEXAS doesn't think that, but one business owner apparently does and the poster is applying that to everyone in the state.  That could apply to some posters here who has nothing to do except scour the internet for tidbits to exacerate out of proportion,  Some of us have more important things to do.  Have a nice day now.

Strange, one idiot restaurant owner up in Lubbock decides to resurrect an outdated and racist caricature so therefore an entire state of millions of diverse people is considered racist?  How illogical!!!

 

Must be a slow day finding valid topics to post.

Must be really a slow night with subsequent replies, mostly based on uninformed regional bias.  And from the usual suspects.


Is that a post in favor of the intergluteal cleft of the nation?
