There is Austin, Texas, and then there is the rest of Texas. Austin does contain several thousands of people who have some connection with human decency, and then there is the rest of this state which has descended to a modern version of the Old Wild West. Want to bring a gun to daycare, just go to Texas? Want to bring a gun to church, where else but the God fearing gun-toting place known as Texas.
There is a private school in Waco, Texas, which for some reason actually has a black student among those attending. The kids were out on a camping trip when this little 12 year old black girl suddenly realized that her classmates had placed a rope around her neck and were jerking on it. Oh well, boys will be boys. They just wanted her to recall the good old days when blacks not only had a rope placed around the neck, but the rope was around a tree branch. Ah, for the good old days in Texas, where a black knew her place.
