And your point is?
No point needed... just a matter of fact.My father-in-law, all-state b-ball player from Terrell HS in 1958, told me these stories. Folks forget sometimes what it was like and what it can become...
The evil whitey at it again...I think they MAY have been taken in the past, right?
What's the point? I lived through the 50s and 60s...this was life back then. What are you "wowing" at???
BG is such a whiney liberal! Somewhere back in time we were all crucified for reason or another!
They can't move to Newark now that they passed that used trailer thing.
This gives me hope...if this much change has happened in 50 years what's going to happen in another 50 years?
1:40------ Might want to hold off on all that hope.In another 50 years the Muslims will have taken over most of the world, and your granddaughters will be treated far worse than we ever treated the blacks.Those Muslims are simply meaner than we are, and like it or not, meanness is what facilitates evolutionary ascendency in the animal kingdom.And if you are too dumb to see the writing on the wall, well, you deserve what you get
2:27 - your ignorance is showing - big time!I lived through the 60's but from a small town in the middle of nowhere, I wasn't exposed to this type of horrible actions except seeing it as a kid on the 6:00 p.m. news. We have come a long way and yes, we can hope that the next 50 years brings much more love and understanding to all races and religions.
In 1992 I moved in to a 22 unit apartment complex in Houston because it was walking distance to work. I was the only "%$^&#@ cracker", as I was called the first day, in the complex. My tires we slashed, all car lights and back windshield smashed, and "leave" or "die" was scratched in my apartment door 4 times. There are idiots on both sides of the issue but there are also many (black and white) who chose to not get caught up in the stupidity.
Red and yellow black and white, They r precious in his sight,Jesus love the little children of the world.
I'm old enough to remember segregated schools here in Wise Co. I also remember we had a black maid who insisted on riding in the back seat, as that was "her place", and that was HER training, not my parents' wishes. I remember black and white water fountains at Six Flags. this is all a part of our history. Not sure why BG is so blown away. ARe you really that young or just that naive? As to hope for the future, I believe it's already decided. God knows the future, it's set in motion. we just have to live till we die and that's that. I spend ZERO time worrying about the future... what will be will be, so I live today, enjoy life, and if it all ends tomorrow, well....que sera sera, and all that jazz.
1:40 thank you! I too believe the world is getting better! 4:13 I guess you understand how it feels to be the first minority in an different culture. I am sorry that happened and image if you were one of the first black students to attend a white school. Can you imagine how hard that was? I dont think I could have done it. I grew up being the minority and I applaud those that made the sacrifice to be the "firsts". They are American heroes! 6:36 her training was done to keep her alive. How sad that she still felt the need to do it in your family.
Ya'll sure get upity at the sight of niggers.
BG must either be as dumb as dirt or just enjoys getting people fired up. He acts as though this happened yesterday and were all shocked by the past. Surely he realizes this is just a tiny blip on the world history atrocities, right? I find it amusing that our masses seem to only focus on their limited time on Earth and not see the whole, long picture of evolutionary history,
Ya'll wouldn't picket Randolph Scott...- Sheriff Bart
Do you have to sign up for Facebook to see this stuff on Bud Kennedy's page? I don't know if it's worth it.
Yeah, I sure don't remember all the tension in Decatur when we desegregated--I was in Elementary School--we accepted them and that was that (although I'm sure they felt really uncomfortable about being so few in amongst "us"). Sure do remember all the news stories about the crazoids in the cities, also!
Wow, one of those guys sure looks like BG. I'm just sayin'.
Thank you for posting us. It helps remind us that those damn liberals are destroying the America we know and love.First they gave women the right to vote. Then they gave blacks equal rights and allowed them to sit in the FRONT of the bus. Now they want to give the gays the ability to get married! This has to stop!!That's why I proudly support the Tea Party. Working to restore traditional American values!!!
And the neighborhoods and schools are still segregerated. Congressmen and federal judges still live in white neighborhoods in Virgina rather than in Washington, D.C. If you liberals are that set on how bad we were back then, I suggest you move your ass to South Oak Cliff. You can get a big house for a lot less and demonstrate how liberal and open minded you are. Then you would not have to drive 60 miles to work. By the way, South Oak Cliff High School had no black students in 1963. Then there was an exedus that is still occuring. Whites keep moving further and further north. Frisco is the fastest growing city in America. Guess why! It is called white flight. People are just as racist today but they just don't talk openly about it nor even admit it to themselves. The saying is that "actions speak louder than words". Yep, move your ass to SOC and maybe your cute blond daughter can be a cheerleader and date the football players.The federal judge that ordered intergration of the Dallas schools lived in all white (still is) Highland Park.
Those guys look like frat boys trying to cause trouble.
Oh, the good 'ol days when whites could be whites, blacks could be blacks and Kanye West was'nt born yet!
If you think this is history you have your head in the sand. There are a lot of people in this area and particularly in Wise County that are just as prejudice as their parents and grandparents were/are in the 50’s. I’ve heard the “n” word used here more than anywhere else I’ve been. I wouldn’t be surprised if the KKK is alive and well here. As a matter of fact I would be surprised if it wasn’t. Why is it that the bible belt is so intolerant of diversity. There are some great things about this area but there are some things that make you scratch your head like ignorant white people.
I'm sure there's only one thing that BG regrets about posting this picture: .................. That all of those fella's aren't in their bikini's so it could be one of BG's "hey now" moments. Old and gay if you ask me.Yours truelyRu Paul
@ 6:36 - Have you heard of self fulfilling prophecy? Short of a meteor hitting the earth, the earth will end if we decide to end it. We will be overthrown if we decide to be overthrown and we will be oppressed if we decide to be oppressed.
Typical Bud Kennedy - convicting the past instead of focusing on the present.
If the new Newark City Trailer ordinance would have been in place, this would never have occured!
Barry !!! There is a house on fire in Bridgeport on Turkey Creek. Get the scoop .
10:33 It's all already decided in that big play book in the sky.
Not on the subject but did anyone notice from this photo that people were not fat back then? No bellys hanging over their belts.
TeaBagger Parties, way back then! They are still about the same.
These men went on to be the face and mind set of the "Wise County Republican Party".
yes 12:57, and Wise county continues to be a damn good place to live. The other team, followers of Rev, Jeremiah Wright went on to organize Chicago. Why don't you move there and report back to us.
Who was in the limousine that travelled on business 380 and then to south 287 headed and followed by decatur and boyd police cars? They stopped traffic for this obviously much more important person than normal folks.
4:01 you must be drinking the water. But wait that stuff is toxic too. You really are a fool ...
The hate I read here is more from the left than the right. The Tea Party commentor is no member of any Tea Party I know of. Remember that the Democrats started the KKK.LEL
And the republican party used to be liberal. Folks like to forget how fluid ideology is within the political parties, especially when it comes to attracting voters.
One of the proudest moments in my life was when my oldest daughter said “Dad!! For the first time in the history of the United States we have a President named Barack.”AL
