I'm Demographic Crazy

Took this pic out of a very-slick-but-way-too-expensive Trophy Club presentation. Breaking news: There are white people in that town.

Since Obama has already come up with a plan to "spread the wealth around," maybe his next plan will be how to "spread the color around."

This morning on the Chris Mathews show they touched on the subject that the National Census next year will show that Caucasians will be in the minority.

Barry,
You can look at TEA's website for AEIS report here for any district demographics in Texas. This covers several years. Go to section 2 of the report under district profile. It takes some digging, but you can get the information.

Enjoy.

I think you suffer from white guilt. Get over it.

Do you have the demographics of South Oak Cliff?

The African-Americans in Trophy Club are not black. There is a small group of Egyptian doctors and their families that live there. There are also two golfers and their families, born and raised in South Africa but now with dual citizenship. They're not black either, but are GENUINE white African-Americans.

No kidding?

Actually, that slide reminds me of a couple of things, neither relating to the content.

When writing a paper for high school, and, to some extent in college, I can recall being painfully aware of word and page counts, and practicing whatever chicanery possible to expand them.

Later, serving on a city advisory board, I had the 'opportunity' to see many presentations by well-paid consultants, arguing for this or that action (which would then result in a study by the engineering firm, and then...). After a few of these, I formed the opinion that most of these 'studies' live in a word processor somewhere, and get regurgitated [frequently] and billed as though they were original. (My apologies if this sounds eerily similar to a law office.)

What strikes me as funny on this slide is that the text information tells me the exact same thing as the pie chart.

But I guess it helps fill up the slide that way...

Does that mean that all existing affirmative action laws and equal employment opportunity laws will now benefit white people?

Woot! Where do I sign up?

Agreed, Donald.

Flashy and visual.....not a lot of content. Apparently, this presentation would appeal to 53% of Americans.

"Breaking news: There are white people in Trophy Club"

So?

"Breaking news: Decatur is the county seat of Wise county"

"Breaking news: There are black people in Harlem"

"Breaking news: There is a town called Runaway Bay"

Find something that is worth reading....I've wasted my time. Never again.

Fewer and fewer white people, and the economy just gets better and better, eh? You know, Mexican folks are nice and hard working. But they also have had several hundred years to establish a culture and a society, yet today Mexico is in a shambles. Has been for a long, long time. So exactly what is the "Mexican culture" and all this stuff that I'm supposed to be so excited about? Seems to me that any culture so bad that millions of your own will risk dying in a desert to escape maybe isn't worth being so thrilled about. But, I'm supposed to embrace it and look forward to it, I guess.

I resent being called a "caucasian" when my family history is not associated with the Caucasus mountains of Europe. Next time I'm labeled as such in a public setting I think I'll pipe up about it and see what kind of reaction I get. Or maybe I'll just label others in the room as "Kilimanjaroans" or "Popocapetls".
