Random Thought


A 15-year-old boy was fatally shot Saturday evening at La Gran Plaza shopping center, police reported.

You know, I think La Gran Plaza is the old Seminary South shopping center (actual photo). Although I could be wrong. I remember going to Seminary South as a kid before malls were popular. It was like a mall except it was outdoors. Goofy concept, but it was incredibly popular before someone came up with the idea to enclose all the stores under one roof.

But I think the old Seminary South is pretty much a mall catering to Hispanics now. The movie theater even shows current releases dubbed in Spanish.

Edit: While browsing for photos, I came across this. Three girls mysteriously dissappeared from the mall in 1974 and were never seen again. That rings a very vague bell.

I remember when I was a kid, we went to visit my Aunt in Fort Worth. They had just opened that shopping center and we went there. A fight broke out between two hispanic young men and one was stabbed in the stomach. We saw it and left.

We never went back, I remember my mother saying that was all those type of shopping centers was good for, people fighting and killing one another.

Then years later, they opened the mall in Sherman and we went there all the time.

Barry, you are correct:
"The company’s second project, La Gran Plaza de Fort Worth, is the epitome of Grupo Zocalo’s philosophy. Formerly known as Seminary South and Fort Worth Town Center, this million square foot mall provides a mixture of retail, office, and community centers for the neighborhoods and surrounding areas of North Texas." from www.grupozocalo.com

I pass this place on I-35 sometimes and never have the urge to stop!

Seminary South was in fact the first actual mall in Texas but sadly has been over taken by blacks and Hispanics through the years.

and just where would you have blacks and hispanics do their shopping 4:24?

8:37, if you were to take a look at the actual retail activity that takes place, you would see very little. It's called mall ratting.

Yea, 4:24, it's always sad when those damn blacks and hispanics do things. It kinda makes this country look like a melting pot of cultures and lifestyles. That sort of thing will surely be the end of us................................................................................BIGOT!!!!!!
