wehotex I might ascribe some of those comments to your proximity to the Park Cities. As you might know I went to a naturally integrated high school in East Dallas and when a dozen of us went on the SMU, we heard the same type comments. I'll never forget how some of my friends were treated. It really opened my eyes.

I think they should take the tollway for the name change also - a much higher profile street and it goes through the old Little Mexico. Plus I like the irony of it going through white-flight suburbs! I would love to see their faces!

LOL yeah really. can you just see those park cities ppl say "see-zer shuv-ez" without their faces getting all contorted?
i'm surprised that they wouldn't name cesar chavez for just the area south of wycliff (little mexico area and oak lawn). i just can't see them naming the ENTIRE tollway for cesar chavez.

Exclamation Renaming of Ross Ave to Cesar Chavez Ave..

We know who our heroes are and we have decided to honor Cesar Chavez. this decision is community oriented and must come from the Latino community. We have decided on Ross Ave because of the significance it holds for us. Ross Avenue matters because of the Cathedral, DISD headquarters with 70% Latino youth, it is not about immigration, but about honoring an american hero of latino descent. Cesar Chavez came to Dallas (most recent visit 1991) and rallied for the rights of ALL laboreres of all ethnic group who worked in conditions Cesar Chavez helped change. He promoted better rights and wages to workers in Texas and the Nation. Also, thousands of workers in Dallas grew up in working condit ons that Cesar Chavez worked to improve. It is about diversity, inclusion, respecting, and honoring Latinos and our contributions to Dallas. In August, the Mayor agreed that he would support the recommendations of the Latino city council members and asked them to cooperate with the community. Preservation of a segment of Ross where the family resided as is and include a HISTORICAL MARKER IN HONOR OF THE ROSS BROTHERS IN the corner of Ross Ave. and Market. Businesses will not have to buy additional letterhead, but can wait until they are ready to reorder because they will have up to a year to make address changes. Cesar Chavez is OUR NATION LEADER who deserves to be honored.

I'm glad it's not about immigration because:

The American Conservative -- Cesar Chavez, Minuteman

"Columnist Ruben Navarrette Jr. reported in the Arizona Republic, “Cesar Chavez, a labor leader intent on protecting union membership, was as effective a surrogate for the INS as ever existed. Indeed, Chavez and the United Farm Workers Union he headed routinely reported, to the INS, for deportation, suspected illegal immigrants"

We should honor Chavez' memory by putting this under his name on the street signs:

"Report Illegal Aliens ICE 866-347-2423"

Oh I see....

And to hell with what the majority of Dallasites want right? Because the Latino community wants it, the Latino community is going to get it and scr*ew the rest of the city's populace.

And by the way, it is the Ross Family, not the Ross Brothers. If you're going to take out 150 years of Dallas history in one fell swoop, you could at least have a clue about what it is you want to destroy.

Chavez is which nation's leader? Not ours.....but I suppose you don't really know his history either, do you?

Sheesh....

Navarette used to write for our Dallas Morning News. I enjoyed some of his columns when they were about education. But he seemed to lose all sense on some subjects.
