Alleging that someone does something because they're a racists does nothing but put that person on the defensive and I resent that.
He's not my Black President. He is half White & was raised by his White side of the family. If anything that makes him more White than Black meaning he's mixed though the politically correct term is bi-racial.

I hate when people like Lakewooder try & pull the race card. His mentality is the very reason we still have these racial divides existing in this country today. If you can afford to live in an affluent area versus the ghetto how does that make you a racist? Those people obviously have college educations & well paying jobs.

Some schools went from all white to all black in a year or less. Hispanics were counted as white back then.

So what do you think has happened to the large numbers white/Anglo people in Irving, Garland, Mesquite, Carrollton, and Farmer's Branch schools for instance? Also there are many RISD schools which are now majority minority. I think Plano ISD is only about 50% Anglo these days (exept W. Plano) - if you look at Frisco, Allen, Wylie and to a degree McKinney they are very white.

Also look at Duncanville, DeSoto, Cedar Hill, Midlothian, Mansfield -- see any progression?
Give it up man. You're making yourself out to be a complete fool. We're living in 2009 not 1969.

Lakewooder's "mentality"?

As in kindly helping strangers out in learning a new city and being neighborly? Oh the humanity of it all!

How? By stating a fact?

Obama is in fact NOT Black or African American therefore he is not mine or anyone elses first Black President. He is bi-racial meaning he is HALF WHITE. The media loves to brainwash sheep like you though into thinking other wise.

But that means he is HALF BLACK too. I know that seems to give you a headache, but he is just as black as he is white. Black Kenyan Father, White American Mother. I didn't need the media to tell me that.

Let's get back on topic shall we? This was about Frisco, not about Obama or your twisted racial issues and insecurities when it comes to black people.

Ok so I'm a racist because I dislike Obama & don't believe he is a Abraham Lincoln/Martin Luther King hybrid reincarnated. I guess I'd better move to Frisco to be with my other fellow White racist Republicans now that I have a Black neighbor.
