I'M SHOCKED!!!  Don't tell me that there is racism in North Carolina.  What about the part about the schools being desegregated then becoming resegregated again?  One minute mark on the video.

 

And what about the Blacks in the videos insisting there is still segregation and bias.


I'm sure the interviews were recorded somewhere in Texas and the producers changed the location. Certainly, this can't be N.C.!!

   You have finally poked and irritated  some folks who may have needed a serious shaking.   While they may never be WOKE, they will at least be forced to confront their own 'racism denial' face on.  

 

    One has to wonder if they ever go back and read what they write, that is always a learning experience.   


 

I wonder what effect it will have on those living in the Austin/San Antonio area?  There does seem to be much racism in that area.  And they are mostly liberal enclaves.

The mistake a lot of politicians make is forgetting
they've been appointed but thinking they've been anointed.

Did you know that the majority of our good physicians here are from Muslim countries.  

 


What does generosity of Baptists and the skills of Muslim physicians have to do with the treatment this family received at the hands of this TEXAN.

 

What does the generosity of Baptists and the skills of Muslim physicians have to do with the inaction of a TEXAS hotel at which this unfortunate family were guests.

 

Yet another attempt to change the subject.

 

It is repulsive how this family was treated; that is the subject of the thread.

That is an assumption on your part.  There is nothing that says he is a Texan...might even be from North Carolina which has a huge concentration of racism and racists. I posted a link to a map from the Washington Post that shows that the majority of Texas is below average in racism. 

 

Corpus Christi and Padre Island are popular vacation getaways for people from all over.  Our son's brother-in-law who lives in Denver has a condo there that is rented out and for them and family to spend vacations.

 

Further, there is nothing in the local media regarding this which would have received widespread dissemination even in the Houston media.  Houston has a large population of Muslims and immigrants from the middle East.  They are vocal against any happenings like this.  And I haven't seen anything about this in my morning papers.

 

Instead you pick up on a muckracking socialist rag with communistic leanings to make sensational posts. 

 

And who are you to tell others what they can post or not?  And just because others disagree with you doesn't mean it is a personal attack.

It is!!  Just like standing in line at Walmart reading the headlines on the supermarket tabloids.

 

Someone here is missing an opportunity and should apply for employment with one of them. 


Once again, off topic and a personal attack.
