Please Tell Me The Postmark Did Not Have A Zip Code That Began with "76"

"NEW YORK · Yankees star Derek Jeter received a threatening letter that reportedly warned he'd be 'shot or set on fire' if he didn't stop dating white women."

I guess the ol' "Why can't you be more like Derek Jeter?" line I've been using with men finally sent someone over the edge.

Barry: If you have such a low opinion of locals why do you practice here. Most local people are great folks. Not racists.

I object!

I beg to differ with 2:05. Evidently you've never lived anywhere other than Wise County because I have never seen racism so prevalent as the county of Wise. Just ask any black person who comes here.

Although you might not be prejudice, the majority of the county is - like it or not. There are lots of great folks here - unfortunately many pass on the stereotypes of blacks from one generation to the next.

Just curious to everyone else out there and to stir things up a bit - would you let your daughter date/marry someone from another race???

I'm with Condie - he looks white to me. YOu know, I asked my husband that question - the one about, "What if >>>your son brought home a beautiful, kind hearted, Christian girl from college, that he had been dating and she wasn't white." He said it WOULDN'T HAPPEN. I just laughed and said, "Never say never" when it comes to your kids. It isn't really about what color their skin is - is it. I really would be distressed if either of my boys brought home a scanky white girl. (fyi we happen to be white) I don't believe I'm prejudiced. I hope I have it in my heart to establish my opinion on who my children date based on the type of people they are. In the end - I have UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for my children and that won't change no matter who they decide to date or make their life partner.

I have dated black men. The one I really loved (but didn't love me, was a West Point Graduate. We had a relationship off and on for 20 years. He ended up ending it with me for a black woman.

My oldest son dated a very nice black girl. He should have married that one instead of the white girl he did.

On the other hand, my ex-husband's youngest daughter had children by a black man she didn't marry. He beat her and her mother ended up threatening to take her kids if she didn't leave him. She did but ended up marrying a black guy just out of prison for dealing crack. He was back in jail in 2 months and was charged again while in prison for a sting that had gone on while he was out and sold crack to an undercover cop. Her son 6 ended up threatening my son 7 with a knife over Nintendo. Needless to say that didn't go over well. It won't happen again though.
