I am in need of some assistance from any Lake Jackson residents. I have a term paper to comprise in regard to race relations within my community. I would like to know if anyone has any positive or negative comments about race relations in Lake Jackson, Texas. I appreciate your help!

What racism? I have lived in Lake Jackson for 8 years and I find it to be an oasis in a desert of the trash that surrounds it. Lake Jackson has more Christians in it than any community I have lived in and I see people of all races being considerate to each other. If you want to find racism drive 50 miles north and you will find a meca of it.

RACISM 8 OUT 10 STARTS AT HOME COLOR DOES NOT MATTER WHEN YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH RACE. MOSTLY UP BRINGING AND LIKE IT OUR NOT IT NOT JUST WHITES THAT ARE RACES. LET A WHITE KID PUT UP A SIGN ABOVE DRINKING FOUNTAIN AND SEE IF HE OR SHE GETS 3 DAYS SUSPENDION. IT ALL START AT HOME OR LACK OF PARENTAL CONTROL CAUSE THERE BABY CANT DO ANY THING WRONG. HAVE NO KIDS BUT I SEE WITH MY FREINDS AND IF I DID HAVE THE THING KIDS DO TODAY I WOULD HAVE A FEW BRUSES ON MY TAIL SECTION SOMETHING MOST PATRENTS DONT KNOW HOW TO DO CAUSE THEY ARE SCARED OF THEIR KIDS,TEENAGERS.

Ima an AA and was recently in Lake Jackson. I must say everyone we ran into was very nice, but we did see some racial graffiti in the city, ex: (N Word's should all die) ect. But 1 ignorant person cant speak for the whole city.

racism is still alive in lake jackson. I was pushed out of doing business with the city because enough white people teamed together to over power me in doing business.... i was selling sno cones in 100 degree weather and somthing was wrong with that.... and i must say we were told everyday that we had the best snowcones in town. hard work and doing things the right way did not work for me.... being the best did no work for me and being a black owner operator worked against me. jennifer jones head of parks and recreaton backed the descrimination and was spineless in standing up for what was right... she even lied to my face on many occassions to back the discrimination.

As a citizen and employee of the city of Lake Jackson I will add that our city ordinances may be more strict than the surrounding cities but are also mandated for the safety of all who reside and visit here. For example to run a business you are expected to keep the business running up to the standards set through city hall and any business or home remodeling is done by inspections and permits following code enforcement. Again this is to promote safety and to follow code enforcements set by our officials that mandate due to histories trial and error to prote safety standards etc. Our neighborhoods in Lake Jackson consist of mixed races in every neighborhood, apartment and street. The value of the homes and peoples income may vary from place to place but the race does not seem tp play a factor at any Lake Jackson Iocation. I find that Lake Jackson works very hard and diligently on many levels to promote the safety and happiness of all residents and visitors of Lake Jackson.

As a former Police Officer working in Lake Jackson, I'm 100% sure that its the most racist city in Texas. Not Vidor but Lake Jackson, Texas.
