4. i live in texas too. the panhandle, and though you are right, we ALL
are not bigots, there are a whole lot. as my neighbor across the street flies the confederate flag, and i see tons of confederate flag stickers on vehicles, and i saw a truck recently pull up to that neighbors house with a kkk clothe flag over the whole back of his window, in an upper income neighbor

you are right, we all are not bigots. but,.....unfortunately there are many, and they are on the rise now the "good" christians and repugs have validated and encourage the bigotry

TX and making sweeping generalizations, and I'm not even from here originally.

Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 06:47 PM by seabeyond
i hear what you say and there are a lot of good people, a lot of good people that are bigots, lol. out of ignorance, the way they are raised, but bigots they are. i do call it like it is though, i dont turn my eyes away. and.... i do it in love, just dont accept or honor that behavior. if these people had a flash, just a flash of lite, of understanding what they look like in their own bigotry, they would feel such shame. many anyway. not all

25. I'm often amazed at the attitudes of those here at DU towards TX
knowing most have never been here, much less know anything about the politics here.

5. Dallas is a respectable shade of purple...
Fort Worth is the one that is BRIGHT red. I do agree we've got a ways to go though.

30. i think. and in the red panhandle, i proudly drive my car with 8
liberal bumperstickers for all to see. and every kerry sticker i see, (way more than what i thought i would), they get a huge smile thumbs up and with you bro, sis. yup

takes strength to be blue amongst all the red AND stay sane

32. Hmmm...it's pretty damn close
Breakdown of large Texas cities and the way they allegedly voted during the 2004 Presidential election:

Dallas 49% (Dallas)
Tarrant 37% (Ft. Worth)
Bexar 44% (San Antonio)
El Paso 56% (El Paso)
Travis 56% (Austin)
Harris 45% (Houston)

Texas isn't nearly as red in the cities as one might think.
In the larger metropolitan areas of Texas, Bush and Kerry were neck and neck with Bush receiving a total of 1,755,762 votes and John Kerry receiving 1,577,388.

RACE NAME PARTY CANVASS VOTES PERCENT
President/Vice-President
George W. Bush/ Dick Cheney REP 346,246 50.34%
John F. Kerry/ John Edwards DEM 336,641 48.95%
Michael Badnarik/ Richard V. Campagna LIB 3,653 0.53%
Michael Anthony Peroutka/ Chuck Baldwin W-I 143 0.02%
John Joseph Kennedy/ Daniel R. Rezac W-I 7 0.00%
Deborah Elaine Allen/ Joesph H. Senegals W-I 6 0.00%
Andrew J. Falk/ Marijohn Peterman W-I 4 0.00%
Walt Brown/ Mary Alice Herbert W-I 7 0.00%
David Keith Cobb/ Patricia LaMarche W-I 102 0.01%
Ralph Nader/ Peter Miguel Camejo W-I 900 0.13%
-----------
Race Total 687,709

According to these figures, close to 75,000 more people voted in 2004 than in 2000 with the Democratic vote reflecting an increase of 61,333 votes with a net increase of over 4% of the vote and the Republican vote only realizing a gain of 23,901 but sustaining a net loss of over 2% of their vote.

7. Remember what happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963:
It was described then as one of the most viciously racist cities in America, whether North or South, and these poll results merely reflect the fact that its racism is undiminished. Consider these numbers the equivalent of a wildly enthusiastic crowd
cheering Bennett and shouting "Zieg Heil!" as if he were the reincarnation of some Nazi minister of education.

17. Appreciate your stance: was raised 2/3rds in the South and was...
part of the Civil Rights Movement -- in which there were also (wholly contrary to MSM reports) many native-born white Southerners. (The Village Voice did a comprehensive piece c. 1965 on Southerners active in the Civil Rights Movement, and I did a similar story in '69 -- its primary focus the degree of real integration among Southern youth -- this for an alternative NYC paper that unfortunately never got into publication.)

13. 1,041 people think it's just fine to abort all black babies.
Were William Bennett's Comments Over The Line?
Choice Votes Percentage of 1723 Votes
Yes 659 38%
No 1,041 60%
Unsure 23 1%

Strange comment and strange people who agree with it, or at least find it acceptable.

15. Look under Bennett's picture,
and click the word "poll". (Unless you are interested in pearl soled shoes.)

19. I'd buy ten pair if I could! But I think the Bennett poll is gone.
I hit every link around the image of his vile kisser, but no poll.

27. That didn't last long, did it?
Maybe they have a numerical cutoff? Or maybe they wanted to stop the poll while it still supported the gambling bigot who preaches morals.

33. Hey, if they do it with presidential elections,
why not some tiny little poll?

They gotta "catapult the propaganda" per orders of their "president".

22. Poll is now gone just as other posters say. Obviously...
the MSN doesn't want any further revelation of America's ever-less-closeted racism, whether in Dallas or anywhere else.
