I had gone to see a nephew graduate, the first time i had ever been to this town, i noticed there were no students or people from another race anywhere around, all white, there was one lady there at the graduation who had driven in from out of town, she happened to be bi-racil, she was the only person "of color" there, i watched her get up from the graduation and go to the ladys room, and watched 2 men, one of which made a comment (to show his stupidity,) "i thought we got rid of all the n*ggers around here!" Then she had a female, not gonna say "lady" because thats not what she was, slam the bathroom door in her face! This behavior sickens me, to sit back and watch, or listen to other peoples ignorance because another person is not of the same color! You people need to make peace with GOd, and ask his forgiveness, remember he did great those people of color, how can you hate or look down on someone who didnt ask to come in this wourld to put up with your stupidity? They, or she had just as much right to be there as you did! You people make me sick. I was in that town one time, and i will never go back! This is coming from a white woman, i'm sure some of you will lable me with one of your intelligent words as a "n*gger lover" because i dont understand your hatred. Call me what you will, but loving people for who they are and not for what they are, certainly makes me a better person than you....All the black folks reading this....dont go to Liberty Tx, or Batson. The devil is around every corner there!

Not everyone in Batson and Liberty are racist. As a matter of fact i think Liberty is predominantly blacks, right?? You say these people in Batson are wrong for being racist (and they are)
but you hating them just because of that makes you wrong. you say God made 'em you should love 'em.. Didn't He make the racist people of the world as well?? You are a bigot and just as ignorant as these people in batson. Nothing in your statemnent makes you a better person than anyone else. By the way your grammar was all wrong and you mistyped a lot. you are not as intelligent as you think you are!! Remember KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!!!!!

I didnt say everyone in Batson is a racist, i was commenting on the people who are so stupid as to voice their ignorant opition out loud towards another human being because of the color of their skin! Anyway who are you? oh wait, you must be the son of the Grand Poopaw???(kkk?)Anyone else reading this who has a kind heart towards mankind would never have posted a stupid comment like you just did about the hatred that young lady had to deal with just because she wanted to see her little nephew graduate! Oh and you made a comment about MY spelling, UH you mispelled "STATEMENT!"

I grew up near Batson. My grandmother was born in Liberty. The majority of my family lives in the area that you've just condemned. None of us are racists. So I think it's more than just a little unfair for you to condemn a whole region based on the behavior of a few jerks. However, don't talk about the people around here like we're all a bunch of uncultured rednecks. You know, there's a great deal of irony in somebody from North Carolina preaching about racism. There's nothing like a getting a lesson in racial tolerance from a citizen from one of the first states to secede from the Union and one of the last states to end Jim Crow Laws. As far as I'm concerned, I couldn't care any less whether or not you ever came back. However, if everyone had your attitude, North Carolina's tourism would diminish greatly. So come down from your high horse. After all, there may be a few bigots in Texas, but North Carolina has bigots and a College Lacrosse team made up entirely of rapists.

I am not the Son of anyone, I am a 23 year old FEMALE!! I didn't say anything about the hatred "that young lady" had to endure, I spoke directly to you about your ignorance. What is an opition? I made one typing error in my first statement did you read over your statement and count your mistakes??

Maybe some people have decided that they would rather live some where else rather than to live in Batson. Can't you children find something better to discuss than who lives where in small town texas? Maybe you should have gotten a few more whuppins when you were younger. Now has a home town boy from N.C. I know for a fact that you are the pot calling the kettle black.(pun intended).

First of all, you shouldn't be talking about this subject. But, let me tell u something Ms. Sonia, you can't judge 1 or 2 people in Batson or Libery, and assume that all the other people in that town are racist. Not everyone in that is racist. Plus, you only went there ONCE. You probably didn't even give yourself a chance to meet other people in that town. Not to mention, I am a Black Woman!
I don't appreciate you judging people like that. I have friends that live in Liberty that are WHITE. You tried to prove your point here, but you only made yourself look stupid. And I'm only 15 years old and have better judgement than you!

And I forgot to mention that I live in Dayton ( don't look at the bottom of my name on my first statement). Dayton is right beside Liberty. And you can't even judge anyone in Dayton. Some people in Dayton are just like other people in Liberty or Batson. And I fully agree with the woman from Houston. And in a way, you're just as ignorant.

wow. this was about as entertaining as watching a room full of 6 year olds arguing. the only point you all made was that you are all defensive little hypocrites. racism is ignorant, stereotyping is ignorant, finger pointing is ignorant and it's all so petty.

I am from Daisetta. It is located between Liberty and Batson. I can understand the young ladys impression about the area; however, I would point out that racism exists everywhere amoung all people. The true test of character is to not let it interfere with what you are doing.

Gee, thanks for your input Val. We get it now, we're all hypocrites and first graders. You don't have to repeat yourself to get your point across. I agree with you that racism, stereotyping, and finger pointing are all ignorant. What is or isn't interpreted as petty varies from person to person. There are people that either live or once lived in the area in question and don't appreciate some of the comments that were made and responded. If you think it's so petty, then why did you respond twice? Since you're obviously the expert on hypocrisy, is it hypocritical to call everyone first graders or 6 year-olds because you think the discussion topic is petty? If you're going to talk down to us, you should warn us in advance. That way, there's time for everyone to go have a lobotomy done so that we can all be closer to your level intellectually.

OHHHHHHH!!!! OUCH!!!!!!! YOU GOT ME!!!!!!! That was a GREAT response. Well played, well played. It appears as though I've fallen prey to your superior, stinging wit. I'll make sure to quit while I'm ahead before you start making poo-poo and tee-tee jokes about me. I just don't know if my inner child could withstand another assault of that magnitude. I know when I've been beaten. Give yourself a pat on the back. What a fiendishly clever, smart person you must be to be able to come up with that all by yourself.

well to let all of ya'll know NOT EVERYONE that is from that part of TEXAS is like that!! Myself I am origanally from Baytown and know live in Lousiana~and at a point in time I lived in the area that ya'll r talking about and there is mostly colored people in Liberty but know Batson is a majorally white population and there is a sum of prejudism there but its the class of people that u heard talk and not all of them are that way either!! You have bad in all colors but just remember that God made us all and no matter what color we r we should love one another just as the lord has loved us!!!

hello sonia i pray u see my response to ur letter as does everyone else in what i see as a very bigoted and racist community. i also have been to this "upstanding" area and noticed the same thing . how do people in this the 21'st century expect their children to undersatnd the world by isolating innocent children in a sea of white. one day these children will leave the apronstrings of home and not be able to fully appreciate the ethnic diversity of our land. i believe this district was formed strictly to provide area children with the "right" ethnic make-up/ i believe the dept of education needs to get invoved in such a farce of a district. 1 room school houses are a sign of the 19th century not the 21st which we live in. to place all schools prek-12 in 1 location shows the inability of the district to provide adequate funds especially when i see a masonic lodge emblem as the cornerstone. i am sickened at such bigotry. just another sign of ignorance

i do believe your response is a clear and evident example of pure redneck . if u dont agree with someone that right "just kick their ass" sad so sad that violence is to be ur method of attempting to have an educated forum. so if u care to "kick my ass also" go ahead it wont make you a better man though ..or are you unsure of your manhood and this is why you believe you need to resort to violence at the fist sign of a disagreement
