  •  There is an enormous amount about Texas (0+ / 0-)

    that most of the country doesn't know, and it doesn't help that the national media, in covering Texas, doesn't try to find out much and just uses stereotypes to depict the entire state.

    One thing the diarist has wrong about Texas, though, it is NOT a majority-minority state.  Whites still outnumber all other racial and ethnic minorities by a long shot.  Although the state's Hispanic population is growing, so is its white population, mostly due to job opportunities in the state.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
