My family and I are considering moving to Henderson, TX, but after reading these posts I am not sure it is such a great idea anymore. For the majority of the posts you are making it sound like Henderson is the most run down, poorly educated and judgmental place to live. If your point was to discourage people from moving to Henderson, well then congratulations you have succeeded. I would really like some input from the non judgmental people though. Aside from all of the apparent racism, what is Henderson really like? How are the schools? Is it safe to let your kids play outside and ride there bikes? That is what should be important. I will say one thing about the whole "racism" topic, In this day and age yes it exists however like the word Love it get's thrown around way to easily, so my question is this , Are people REALLY being "racist" or do you not like there opinion of your character as a person? or did you not get your way and your having a hissy fit like a child and starting calling people names? It is time to grow up people look around our country is on a very fast downward spiral and instead of banning together as Americans you are up in arms over race???? So sad.

Ok, first off, Henderson isn't now and hasn't ever been any worse than any other small town. The whole racism thing is a matter of perspective. If you're not racist, then you don't have anything to worry about and if you are, well that's your damn problem. And attitudes won't change unless people let them. Henderson is also experiencing slow and steady growth and will probably have a lot more to offer incoming families in the future. For those of you knocking the town, if you don't like it, haul off to somewhere that makes you happy. For those of you interested in coming here, come on down. Not everyone here is as small minded as the morons you see on here.

Racism goes both ways. There is nothing else to say. Educated whites and blacks don't like quotas based on race and those who have chosen to look for excuses are left behind. There will always be the white guy that uses the n word and the black guy that uses the word cracker. And lastly there will always be a white guy in some group or pretending to be a preacher who hates and says blacks are taking over and there will always be a black guy pretending to be a preacher who hates and is an advocate for entitlement.

Why don't all of you start trying to do something constructive with your life instead of whining and complaining about Henderson?, I am an outsider that moved here and I have worked and made a living for myself just fine and I am not in the clique. Sure I had to deal with the outsider crap when I first moved here but I didn't let it hold me down. Stop acting like everybody owes you something and take a little pride in yourself and make a difference, this crybaby crap isn't going to make you a better person.

Its apperant that Henderson people like their city the way it is. If you don't like it, then don't come here.Its a lot easier to change your plans than it is to change a town. I've lived in 13 different cities 4 different states in the south. They are all the same and there is no changing them. Just pray for them and move on, or live with it and still pray for them.

Genesis 3; 20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.

According to the WORD OF TRUTH, there is only one race, THE HUMAN RACE!!!!!

John 13;34 - 35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

2 TIMOTHY 2;11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:

12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.

15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

I can see this thread has been ongoing for 6 years, yet with all the pissin and moaning on hear nothing has changed in Henderson. It is still the racist Godless town it has been for generations. My uncle used to tell me that Rusk County was the black hole to Hell and the folks here are just clinging on to prevent being sucked in, but give them a little time and they'll be burning with the others. I have lived in a lot of small towns and have never witnessed such pure hatred and evil as I see here. There is a whole new level of bigotry in east Tx. If you are not 5th generation or more from this county, then you will never ever fit in or be accepted. I am 6th generation from Henderson and I choose not to fit in. I want no part of the tradition or ignorant mindset of these barbaric pigs. I AM A BIGOT !!! But my prejudice is against the old money and families from Henderson. I would never in 10 lifetimes allow my children to be raised with the prejudices that I was raised with. And if the truth was known, they don't want any newbies moving here. No new commerce, or citizens are welcomed. But, to be clear, there are a few families here that are good people and try to make you feel welcome. But very few. That's my POV, Whats yours?

I am no where close to 5th generation from this town and I have been accepted perfectly here by all walks of life. I moved here 20 years ago and never had issue from anyone. Maybe the problem isn't the town but more your attitude towards it. If you project the kind of attitude you have on here, no wonder no one likes you. Quit being the problem and try to be part of the solution.

I don't want you to think that if I go to California or any other place that these people have ran my anywhere I am on a book signing tour. Keep up the fight I will be here with you, as this fight is longer than most of you know! You see racist don't believe that they are racist. They fight you for wanting the same life as they themselves have. You look at Jim-Craw; many of these whites in Henderson are the same whites as were then. They are just older and they have more Hate in them. I will pray that Most-High GOD, will show those faces to the world.
And you call yourself a Bishop...Instigator is more like it.

It goes both ways. When you have a black council member who hides behind being a preacher to work his political racial agenda it's against the law. It is equally against the law if a white council member does the same. If an investigation was started tomorrow, there would be witness testimony against one council member. I was told he voiced complaints in a council meeting or when they go behind closed doors to talk about whatever they want.Apparently numerous instances occurred in the last 6 years where discussions occurred behind closed door meetings of the council and city managers that were not on the agenda as required.

The complaint supposedely came from some city employees who didnt get promoted to supervisory positions and the council member didn't want the complaint to follow the complaint procedures required in the city laws approved by the state. Furthermore, the alleged complaint wasnt based on someone who should have gotten a promotion because of merrit, test scores, licenses achieved, knowledge, past performances or even seniority. The complaint was made and accepted by a council member that the promotions should have been given based on race. I'm asking that someone put together a signature committee to force the council to have a formal investigation. That's fair and right. Even if it turns up no wrongdoings. It should still be resolved. Ask anyone who could be involved if they think an investigation should happen and see who says yes and who says no.
