"Sound of screeching brakes"Wow! There's no way this Nazi Kraut is gonna turn out of the skid. He's barreling down a mountain curve with the pedal on the floor. Watch out for that sudden impact at the bottom, Fritz!
Hey...what blog is that?Give the address... i want to see the comments!
like water off a duck's back
I remember driving down the freeway with my dad in the late 60's and a car load of N_ggers ("A" does not go in the blank) went by and he would always say it was going to rain and I would always ask,how do you know dad and he would always say cuz I saw a bunch of black clouds over there.He's been dead a long time but it's still makes me laugh.
I couldn't have expressed my opinion any better. Wow, 2 bloggers express the truth and you call it rampant racism. I find it offensive that liberal weenies cram political correctness down our throats because of their white guilt.
3:24, Wouldn't you have loved to have heard what the car load of niggers were saying about you?
Many of our parents expressed racist attitudes. The "greatest generation" was full of racists. Those of us born since WWII are slowly evolving out of that mode - while the minority of racists continues to dwindle. Maybe one fine day we will finally "judge people on the content of their character - not the color of their skin."
I clicked on reject- nothing
when i was growing up in the 60's in the deep south the word nigger was used to describe the way people acted. it was black people who first told me that you didn't have to be black to be a nigger, they told me that anyone could be a nigger based on their actions. well the actions of most black people in my book make them niggers. i would not consider a black person who was honest, hardworking and tried to be a good citizen to be a nigger, however the majority are not honest etc..
If McCain had sat under the teachings of this man for 20 years, one could safely assume that he too was a racist. But your candidate for president absorbed an equally, if not more radical brand of "theology" and he still gets to pull the race card and claim to be the one that represents change.
and when i say majority i don't mean 51%, i mean more like 91% of black people do want something for nothing. they in my opinion are lazy and shiftless (definition of a nigger in websters dictionary). and the majority of them will rob, rape and kill without provocation or remorse. they are a blight on our society. all these uh liberals who claim to not be racist don't have a fuc*ing clue or they are liars...!
And it's useless to try to argue logically with this type of poster. He is never going to get it. I'm a high school teacher, and for the most part, the younger generations have gone off and left this thinking behind - at least when it comes to blacks. Thank heavens.It's sad that there are still so many people around like this poster......... and that they find the way to your blog.
Wouldn't it be hilarious if the person posting these "nigger" comments turned out to be some V.I.P. here in Wise County (as opposed to some crazy redneck)?
LBJ started this welfare system as we know it today back in 1964 as part of the civil rights actof 64'. when i was a kid there used to be something called commodity day, does anybody remember that or know what that was? it was a way for poor people to receive food and staples to help their families..LBJ stopped this and replaced it with welfare checks, we used to joke about all those welfare caddies you would see parked in the housing projects..i believe LBJ did this to appease blacks and get votes, now this system has evolved into 4 or 5 generations of black who believe the government owes them and the democrats keep pandering to them by liberals..
4:13tap the breaks there bud. You define majority as 91% then go on to say that the majority of them will rob, rape and kill without provocation or remorse. That may be over the line, just a thought.
Many of us came up in homes where racist remarks were the norm. I remember walking into a restaurant on vacation with my family and a black family entered. We had already been seated when my dad got us all up to leave just because that family entered. I agree with 3:40, with the passing generations a lot of racism is diminishing.And teens today have no problem at all with black/white dating and/or marriage.They don't even give it a passing thought.
Do you believe that God only created white people?? I am a white woman and a Christian. How can I profess Christ and devalue a person because of their created body? I can not. However, I can react and adjust my life and those for whom I am responsible to avoid anyone of irresponsible behavior and character. If I do that am I a racist?
So what did he say that was so wrong???
A) 4:13 - Those statistics are YOUR OPINION. 91%? Where did you come up with that? You are likely taking a generalized, stereotypical perspective of a group of people off of, likely, little to no personal experience. Do you know 100% of the black people even in Wise County? The metroplex? Texas? Doubtful. You can't go around throwing out statistics like that without making yourself seem even less intelligent and hurting your argument even more.B)Even if those statistics are right, that gives NO PERSON the right to automatically be prejudiced against someone just because of the color of their skin or, since we're dealing with prejudices here, their religion or sexuality either. It isn't fair to them, they had no choice of the color of their skin when they were born.C)Stop being such pussies. Language is language. What does it matter what some random jackass on the internet says? What does it matter what anyone says or the language they use to express it? Everyone is so scared to drop the word nigger, for example, even though it is a legitimate word. It is ridiculous and PC language can just F--- RIGHT OFF!!!
Wow! Do you wish you hadn't started this one? Or does this just prove your point? Actually, racism is just one of many forms of bias, of which we all suffer from in one form or another (man is a fallen creature). There is also the bias of believing in your own intellectual superiority over others because you can manipulte them. To claim one bias is worse than the other is another form of human depravity called hypocrisy.
Well...isn't this a nice way to end the week.Double Fake Debbie Downer
wurdturd thinks just i person is responsible for expressing these "racist" views..i believe if truth be known these views are shared by almost all people (non blacks), except the turd-man of course..!!
3:40 - That kind of talk may sound great, but that is total B.S. Racism isn't dwindling. It's just more commonly suppressed.
As a public school teacher I cannot believe the ignorance of some of these comments. No wonder we have such a hard time trying to re-program some of our students. The scary thing is that these comments are often made by parents. I agree with 3:40. Its all about education and a true understanding of the world in which we are a part. As long as I am part of the educational system, I will guarantee you that I will fight this ignorance with correct teaching and only hope that I can help make a difference.
Oh for goodness sakes. I have not heard such idiotic statements since my family reunion.
I went to DHS during the time black were sent to Denton. Applied late for a dorm room at college and spent my Freshman year in the Negro dorm. Six white boys and about 100 blacks. There wasn't a problem.As am educator, I have worked hard to rid my thought processes of bias and prejudice. It is a work in progress. The words are no longer a problem, but I catch myself wondering how that Hispanic affords such a nice pick up etc. As I said a work in progress.In the Army I was the minority. Bias was there, but for the most part treated well. Whether we naturally segregated ourselves in the enlisted men's club, or we just didn't want to be "on guard" all the time, I don't know but we did separate ourselves.I remember the Army bullshit in Korea about the orientals didn't appreciate life like we Americans did. As I said, bullshit. Death is death. Sadness is sadness. Hunger is experienced in a area where the color is the same for all.Prejudice will and has diminished as we rub elbows with one another. We discover life is pretty much the same for all of us.
4:53.........................That is the most intelligent question anyone has asked concerning my comment. You see, there was no hatred in my observation, only what I have seen and experienced in 50 plus years on the planet. Much of what I say is stated clearly by the few prominent blacks who sincerely want to raise their brothers from their current state. For you to feign shock and disdain at my opinion is naive and disingenious. Clever enough way to put a blog on autopilot for the weekend though.
Several years ago my wife and daughters went to a mall in south Fort Worth, on the west side of I-35, (maybe Seminary?). We went into the food court to get something to eat and when we sat down, I noticed we were the ONLY white people anywhere! I was really nervous. I had never been in that situation before. I thought for just a moment that I maybe felt just a very small portion of what it may be to be black in a mostly white atmosphere. I didn't like. Nothing happened, everything was fine. I now treat minorities differently. I try to evaluate (judge) everyone based on their actions and not the color of their skin. That being said, you never get a second chance to make a good first impression. We tend to judge (evaluate) the next person by the impression left by the last person.RJ
Just because some part of an offensive racist's comment is incorrect does not mean the ENTIRE comment is incorrect.As for the portion of the comment that addresses what is racism the author is WRONG as indicated by the dictionary definition of RACISM. rac·ism /ˈreɪsɪzəm/ [rey-siz-uhm] Pronunciation Key – noun 1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others. 2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination. 3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races. As for the portion of the comment that addresses, birth statistics, crime rates and other unflattering statistics regarding the black community, unfortunately, the comment, though lacking exact numbers does make several salient points.Currently, 70% of all black children are born to unwed mothers.Currently, 50% of all blacks drop out of high school prior to graduation.White criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time.Black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse.Black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common as the reverse.SourceThese statistics do not alter the FACT that the author of the blog comment is, by definition, a RACIST which does indeed make them part of the problem rather than a part of the solution.
509 - You're proving my point that one loudmouth can create a wrong impression.You are correct only in that I don't share your views.
So the racist German guy is Clark Rockefeller, huh?
i believe you teachers are either ignorant or dumb to think racism is dwindling, actually just the opposite is true. you live in a different world if you believe there's less than in the past, like 549 said it's just more suppressed..people are afraid to express their true feelings. btw i really do believe most teachers are not really qualified to teach and should be tested every year just like the kids.
I dare you (whoever this extremely racist person may be) to go exclaiming your racist hatred in a community dominated by African Americans. It's pretty easy for you to be a racist biggot from the safety of your computer or your white-centered community.
I don't care what you say, there will always be:Blacks and NiggersWhites and White TrashMexicans and MescansThink about it. There is a difference.
Opinion and truth are NOT the same. If you feel your opinion is always the truth, well, enough said!Consider the source!
3:40, you said it well. We just have to break that chain.
4:33 I couldn't agree more. No one else will listen to this poster, and he'd surely get beat up if he said these things in mixed company, so he uses this blog to feed his ego.5:09 There you go again. NO these views are shared by NOT ALL or even MOST people. Thankfully, I know almost no-one who shares these views.5:50, I, too, am a public school teacher, and I assure you that NONE of this type of speech or behavior will ever go on in my classroom. No, I don't teach the whole school, but kind behavior can be as contagious as negative. I'll choose to teach my students to take the high road.
4:53 - to say that we don't agree with your opinion is naive..........get over yourself.
7:35 become a teacher. Until then, your view on what we believe and see everyday in the classroom is uselss simply because you haven't a clue on what you speak. The ignorance rolls across your tongue now. You may be the parent who uses such words around his child, who in turn, brings them to school-- we can spot you a mile away.
Break the chain? Didn't they try that in east TX but the head came off?
7:35Over what material would you like for teachers to be tested annually?
i didn't say the definition of racism you stupid bitch, i said the definition of nigger..grow a brain, dumbass..!!
You said it 7:53Good and bad in all cultures.
Way to go 5:50. You are an eloquent writer. Maybe you can work with 7:35's children. Obviously 7:35 isn't aware of the quality educators in Decatur.
I believe that blacks can run faster than whites and whites can swim faster than blacks. I have been watching the Olympics and have reached those conclusions. Am I a racist? Please educate me!
anon is out of control
NO 7:35 People should be tested before they become PARENTS! Children express themselves usually as their parents have taught them to or how they have seen their parents express themselves!
I remember back in the early 70's, I worked in a factory that had plenty of mexicans AND blacks. Blacks were pretty diligent about keeping the saying,"black is beautiful" in the public eye. You just seen it EVERYWHERE!!! Well one day I seen BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL on the bathroom wall, next day right underneath it were the words,TAN IS GRAND, third day was the words, 'BUT WHITE IS THE COLOR OF THE BIG BOSS MAN!! End of story, but it is a true story!!
4:52, You may not be racist but you are prejudiced. And there ain't a damn thing wrong with that.
7:44, And I dare a black person to come into a predominatley white neighborhood and express his racism. And to the teacher that sees young children whose skulls are full of mush and don't see racism, just give them time after they have grown up and seen the real world.
Howard Dean, you remember him, "The Screacher", who is now head of the DNC is calling the GOP "The white party." Isn't that a racist statement coming from the liberal weenie party? Would it be racist if I said the DNC is the black party?
To: The Statistics LoverHere are a few statistics to tickle your fancy. A greater percentage of men smoke cigarettes than women. Using your logic, women are better than men. When it comes to drinking, 64.4% of whites drink in comparison to 46.4% of African Americans, 50% of Native Americans, and 50.8% of Hispanics. A higher amount of white people use marijuana and other forms of drugs than both Hispanic and African American populations.Based on 2005 statistics, Hispanic women had the highest number of children born out-of-wedlock with 100.3 for every 1,000, followed by black women at 67.8 for every 1,000.A higher number of white people commit rape and sexual abuse than African Americans or Hispanics, though violent crime rates among African Americans are higher than whites, the white crime rates are still very high as well.When it comes to "master(ing) the English language," are you a master of the English language yourself? Is it only unacceptable for African Americans to speak differently? I find it more intolerable to listen to a hillbilly with extremely bad grammar, using words like "y'all", "ain't", and "fixin' to." Is it the accent you don't quite take to? Since you have no problem with "Mexicans", I'm sure you have also mastered the Spanish language as well, as there is a considerable percentage of the Hispanic population which speaks no English at all. I guess what really baffles me is that a master of the English language confuses the word "statistics" with the word "stereotypes." Maybe it's the S's that threw you off. Understandable, despite you being a master of the English language.I guess there could be a lot of assumptions made upon you since you have no moral, ethical, or religious beliefs since you live by statistics alone (incorrect ones at that). Whether words offend you or not is irrelevant since you are a robot of sorts with no compassion, no love, and no life. The word racist does not translate to a hatred of all races, so your defense that you tolerate "Mexicans" does not exempt you from being deemed a racist. You have a clear hatred of the African American race and in my book, you are amongst the lowest of human beings.
I grew up with grandparents who said things like "They can't help it. It's their nature to steal" and a father who once said at a baseball game (when a kid stole a base) "They aren't happy unless they're stealing something." When my oldest was in middle school I dropped him off for school one morning, and he pointed out a guy he had been telling me about the night before. He pointed to two boys walking in the building and said "There he is-there's David."I asked wich guy was David, and he replied "The one in the green shirt; the one in the yellow shirt is Matt." David was African American. Matt was Caucasian. I was proud that my son saw the clothing color as more descriptive than the skin color.
7:53 said it best whether any of you believe it or not. To all the teachers posting on this blog: What morons you are. I assume most of you teach in the Wise County area where there are how many blacks? 5 maybe 8 at the most. Of course, you feel the way you do. You live in a dream world. Trot your happy butts to a majority black school and see how you feel. Oh wait. I bet none of you would even go there.
834 you sure got that right..!!
8:34 so you treat those around you with the dignity and understanding a human is intitled to or deserves ? just wondering----I bet you dont. Oh B.G. thank you for reeling me in, 1 to many crowns last night.
Why don't we judge people on their own individual merits and not the "group" they belong to? Because each group, (whether it is race, religion, where you live, occupation, service group, school attending) all have good and bad people in them and it is unfair to the good folks to be stereotyped with the bad folks within the same groups. All groups have good and bad statistics, but the bad statistics don't represent and reflect everyone within their groups. Thus, the only fair way to judge folks, is on an individual basis.
i use the word nigger to describe black thugs, not the entire race. as i've said i respect any black person who is honest and responsible just the same as i would disrespect a person of any color who acted like a thug. i do believe from personal experience that a large majority of blacks absolutely believe white america owes them..even the high profile blacks like jackson and sharpton and many others promote this thought to their people all the time..does anybody believe that if i and everyone else stops using the n-word that this would change their ways and beliefs..????
To anonymous 8:59...Who are YOU calling a "stupid bitch" and a "dumbass" as well as suggesting they "grow a brain?"(This should be fun...*LOL*)
I do not teach in a Wise county school; my current school has a much more diverse population. I DID teach in Wise county in one of the very small schools. The ONLY students who have ever caused me to feel fear were two white brothers. They lived with their grandparents. Their grandfather was a former marine, the grandmother had a college degree. The brothers eventually spent time living at the expense of the state for violent crimes. The thought of those boys (men now) stll gives me the creeps. I've NEVER felt fear when dealing with my minority students. I know some of them are far from angels, and some of them have already become well acquainted with the legal system, but that doesn't have anything to do with the color of their skin.
i know lets start a wise kkk chapter.
KNOCK KNOCK....WHO'S THERE ?? EYES EYES WHO ? EYES GONE BE YO NEX PRESIDENT.....!!
Are some breeds of dogs more intelligent than other breeds? Is this inherited? I just saw that there are IQ tests for dogs! I find it offensive that comentators at dog shows talk about these differences. I call them racist.
You cannot believe in Darwinism and not be a racist. All you teachers posting here are contradicting what public school teach.
I personally find this hilarious! In the post the guy said that in his opinion he was only letting racists on his site to get people to visit. Well be honest Barry, when u saw this u thought 'Wow, i bet this will stir a fire with my readers' lol
945 A GUILTY CONSCIENCE NEEDS NO ACCUSER...I NEVER CALLED YOU BY NAME..!!!! DUMBASS C***..
If the word "nigger" must be banned, then it should be banned for all. One "group" cannot claim they own the use of the word for their own purposes, but the rest of the world cannot speak it. That's ludicrous!
hell this is better'n fishin or f'n..!!
1033 we could call it the wise knights of the ku klux klan....
This whole racist thing has been blown way out. It is simple and most people are correct in their views. When most people think of Pitt Bulls they think of a mean dog, German Sheppard can be mean but can be nice, Cocker Spaniels nice and so on. They are a product of their breeding.Blacks (and other races) are a product of their breeding. America has made them what they are, like it or not. We as a country were mean to them until the 60 & 70's and since then we have bent over backwards making up for the way they were treated. We were wrong on both counts. We created this mess and now we are considering putting a half breed in charge. I don't think we as a country are ready for that.
"If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war. But until that day you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human, f*$king beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shit. Because I am hard you will not like me. But the more you hate me the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you maggots understand that?" ~ Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann
Anon 8:59 If you are the author of the subject matter Barry posted, you need to look at the first line of the last paragraph. mzchief is right, you were defining racism in that line. You said, "I like Mexicans just fine." So you are saying there isn't a single Mexican out there you wouldn't or don't like? Even the Mexicans that do all those bad things that Black folks do? And you respect every single Asian? Not one Asian out there you wouldn't respect?You have freely admitted to being racist towards Blacks, because you admit you like and respect all Mexicans and Asians, despite the fact that there are many in these two races that do all the things you hate Blacks for. Nice work.
This is more fun than a barrel of porch monkeys.
To anonymous 8:59/11:20/STUPID...I never assumed you were referencing me which is why I ASKED for a clarification. Now that I am aware you are too mentally deficient to be able to reach the status of moron thus incapable of following a blog thread, you are the LAST person who should be advising anyone to "grow a brain, dumbass."My comment at 7:11 was in reference to the comment Barry posted on his blog wherein the RACIST PIECE OF GARBAGE who authored the featured comment did in fact, in the final paragraph of their comment, define their, incorrect, understanding of racism. The idiot then explained their acceptance of minority races other than the black race, wherein by doing such, accurately, defined themselves as a RACIST. No doubt there is no word that could offend the author of the featured comment because they lack the decency to be ashamed of the prior RACIST behavior of their Nazi kin and lack the intelligence to be humiliated by their own ignorance.Oh, is there a CHANCE you are the RACIST PIECE OF GARBAGE who authored the comment featured on Barry's Blog and are too ignorant to even be able to recall and understand your own comment?You bigots are such a pathetic lot. The world would indeed be a better place with all bigots thrown into a limed pit and covered up so the remainder of decent civilization would no longer be subjected to your stench. It would be an action that should gain respect from a RACIST PIECE OF GARBAGE because it is much like what the Nazis did to the Jews.Just a word of advice to you, STUPID, should you ever obtain enough intelligence to actually have something, vital, to offer to the discussion feel free to interject a comment, otherwise, keep it to yourself unless you enjoy being the object of public ridicule. STUPID looks natural on you. Were you born this way or have you spent decades practicing the look?(Like I said, it was fun...*LOL*)
I choose to discriminate against idiots. Call me: Idiotist!
NAACP...N_ _ _ _ _s Ain't Always Colored People.jus sayin
Howard Johnson is right about Olson Johnson being right.Double Fake Mel Brooks
8:34 you're a sad excuse for someone who should have some intelligence. We're morons because we choose to teach in Wise County - not that's an intelligent comeback.
So, 9:23, what do you call a white person who is a thug?
Just because I'm a Wise County teacher DOES NOT mean I agree with what is taught over in the science classrooms - another dumb statement. In fact, it doesn't mean I agree with everything that goes on in a school - you probably have disagreements from time to time with what goes on where you work.I am a teacher, and I DO NOT agree with nor practice, nor allow any sort of racism in my classroom - NONE AT ALL. Can I control that? You bet I can, and I do. Now, when some of YOUR kids show up in my classroom, I can tell what is accepted at home, and how they may personally believe - however, it is NOT allowed in my classroom. You don't believe me, come visit!
8:34...I want you to know that your assumptions are wrong about educators who teach in Wise County...That is why you should never assume...Before coming to Wise County, I taught at a predominantly black school for ten years of my life... I did my student teaching at a 5A high school of which had whites and blacks and then taught for 10 years at a 4A high school of which was predominantly black. I can tell you that it was way more than "5 or 8 (students) at the most" (try 1000's)...I want you to know that it was the best experience of my life. I guess you lose the "bet"...I still to this day have former african american students call me to tell me what strides they have made since leaving high school...Yes, we did have black students who got themselves into trouble, but our white students did as well...It's not color...It's bad decisions...It starts at home with what kids are taught from their parents (all races)...bottom line...and no one will convince me differently. I have the experience and the knowledge to know what so many of you on here don't know...and that is that blacks can be just as enjoyable to be around, to know, and to teach as other students if given the chance...8:34...I would not hesitate to "trot my butt" to a predominantly black school again as I don't see them as a color, I see them as students who can excel academically and athletically...My expectations are the same for the students I teach right here in Wise County. See 8:34, the problem is that you get on this blog and talk about things YOU know nothing about...
11:12 I would rather have a class room full of minority students than the spawn of one person like you.
11:22 ludicrous no racist !!!
As a public school teacher who moved here from a big city. I have worked with more minority children than you will ever meet in a lifetime. They were some of the best students I ever encountered. So your comment to me is unfounded. In fact, I would bet that their parents had a higher educational level than you do 753. As far as morons are concerned, the only moron I see is the one who obviously makes ignorant comments and broad generalizations. No offense. I would be more than happy to sit down with you and enlighten you. Just let me know.
Take note of a subltety you'll be seeing more frequently in articles referencing Bernie Mac. They are saying "pneumonia related complications according to his publicist". Not just pneumonia, not sarcoidosis related pneumonia. And, you just aren't really hearing ALL that much are you anyway, right? The truth is out there.
Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world,Red and Yellow, Black and White, They are Precious in His sight,Jesus loves the little children of the world.
I dont think Wise County schools really focus on race. Its all about the Football!! Not the Academics unfortunetly!!
can't we all just get along double fake mlk
stupid people say/write stupid things
Why can't we just use Spear Chucker in place of Nigger?Spear Chucker makes me laugh and Nigger don't.
10:25 - there's a new man (actually several new men and women) in town (DISD). I think you'll see great changes coming; I know I have already experienced them. It's a great day to be an eagle! How many of you remember that saying from one of our finest?
I would agree....but the community had a great one with Ms. Reeves as Principal of DHS. Can't argue with success no matter what you say. Just look at the quality people she hired as a result of her tenure.
Barry, I'm surprised that nobody has it on Labomba, or whatever his name is, or are you holding out on us??
Washington is on the dollar Lincoln is on the penny if barrack obama wins we'll put his ass on the foodstamp!
Democrats will soon start funding "Re-education Camps" to help people that the education system failed to "program".They will fund it by adding a special abortion tax.
I hope we've all learned somethin from these comments cuz I sure have.Whenever you talk about Negro's it just casts one huge dark shadow over everything or somethin.
I've never met a white person named Washington. I bet it's some kind of Nation of Islam conspiracy.
5:38 I guess you can't argue with success if success means running most of the teachers off year after year - Reeves was good at that. Oh, and staff morale - she was good at tearing that down, too.I do agree that there are some quality people at DHS, not very many who were there 10 years ago, but some good ones nonetheless.It's going to be great! The teachers and staff are now very excited, the stress level has already dropped, and things are looking up.
8:52 I can't agree with your comments, but you seem to be a fair person and certainly have a right to your opinion, as I do mine. You forget under her leadership the school was brought out of the mire of bad morale and test scores. Under her leadership the school became a blue ribbon recipient and I understand she was principal of the year in 2003 in the state of Texas. She put DHS on the map. But those things are a matter of fact. I guess it depends on who you talk to. My children graduated with honors and my husband and I attribute that to good leadership. She's a strong personality and that can be intimidating and threatening to weaker people. I guess this is an issue that is never resolved. Just a thought from an appreciative parent who was involved at DHS. Who knows, she may come back in a higher capacity some day.
9:20, it's obvious who you are (you could only be one of a handful of people - who else would remember details like "I understand she ... principal of the year" but those who padded her application). You want facts, look at turnover rates of the faculty at DHS in the past 10 years. Look at the retirees, most of whom have gone back to work somewhere else. Look at how few left THIS YEAR. There's some facts for you.And, the rumors are already rampant that she wants to come back in a 'higher capacity' someday. Yeah, we've all heard it. All I can say to that is: are you kidding me? There would be no one in the whole district left.Give it a rest and enjoy (or let her enjoy) Arlington. By the way, didn't the AISD superintendent get canned after only 6 months on the job? That ought to make things interesting.But have no fear, Mr. Cochran is already raising morale. Ask anyone there, and I mean anyone....
Pertaining to Decatur High School, it seems as though the weak are gone and the strong are still there. Maybe the intimidated and threatened have prevailed.
Thank you DISD!
I am glad to know 951 that you know who these anonymous people are. Looks like you spend too much time on here. The mom was just giving her opinion. You sound like a bitter person. The new principal is a wonderful person too. I have friends who teach at DHS and they really like the new principal. Don't be bitter.....all will continue to flourish at DHS.
