Default Austin is racist

The liberals have controlled Austin forever. Why is racism so rampant?

As much as I love this town and defend it from you crazy rednecks outside of the area (insert smiley face here) this has to be the whitest, most un-diverse city in the entire State. The entire Central Austin area is full of over educated, millennial, white kids. Now, once you get outside of the the two central zip codes you find that we are just good Texas folks.

It always blows my mind when I visit Houston or Dallas. People from all over, all over the place.

i didnt read the whole article, but i didnt see where they compared Austin against other cities with regard to racism.

it seems like they are one of the few cities that is honest about their problem and looking as potential solutions.

every city has racism. not every city has a mayor that will come out and talk about it and try to reduce it.

id be willing to bet that austin is one of the least racist cities in the country. they certainly dont show up on any of the "most racist lists" that ive seen. but, how do you really quantify that anyway?

Education: Rooted in school segregation, Austin classrooms continue to be culturally “mismatched,” to the detriment of students of color. While 47% of the K-12 student population is Hispanic/Latino, only 20% of teachers are Hispanic/Latino. Meanwhile, white students make up 37% of the student population in Central Texas; 73% of all teachers in the K-12 system in the region are also white. That mismatch can lead to white teachers assigning white (and Asian) students higher expectations. Large disparities in disciplinary referrals exist for students of color, especially black students, who are disciplined at "far higher rates" than their white counterparts.

Ok, gotcha...there's definitely a conspiracy of some sort going on around there.

Title says "institutional racism". That's the liberals favorite kind of racism as it doesn't have to show any direct evidence by definition. Causation v Correlation.

Yup. Just like how now the big push is to convince everyone that racism is inherent in your sub consciousness. "We cannot prove it, it doesn't necessarily mean you are a bad person, there's nothing we can do to fix it because it's genetic, just know your opinion is not warranted because of it." The next push will be to legislate it.

Yea, every city has "racism" alright... All you have to do is watch the nightly news... some butt-hurt group is complaining about being offended, then there's a riot about it, but the VAST majority of folks who have to work for a living and pay taxes don't go out and tear crap up and burn stuff down... They're working and they're the ones who get hunt with this lable of racist... That works BOTH ways... If "whitie" got on TV and said and did half the things all these butt-hurt minority groups do, whitie would be strung up... I for one have had a gut full of it... I don't have a racist bone in my body nor am I prejudiced against any "group" because of their physical make up. I am VERY prejudiced against lawlessness, and disrespect, thievery, assault and such. I don't care what your background/nationality/color/gender or is. If you push that stuff on me, I indeed will push back with GREAT VIGOR.

Well I can say I had the most "racist" moment ever in my life in Austin. I was on a residential AC service call, found the condenser fan motor bad and was gonna be about 700 for everything. Told the older white guy and he flipped the F out on me. Called me a pos ni**er, with a few more expletives, and said gtfo his house. I stood there like *** and said ok. Turned and walked out the door. About a minute later he comes running out to me apologizing and kissing arse. He kept saying he didn't mean it but he stuck the landing pretty good on the N word so it wasn't his first to say it. Luckily for him, I am a mild mannered person who needs to work or I would've broken his jaw. And got fired. Lol.

are you really wanting to argue that every city has racism? imo it would be much harder to disprove than to prove. i guess you could argue that institutuonalized racism doesnt exist everywhere but again, there WILL be racist people and the "institution" is, after all, made up of people.

i wouldn't throw these opinions around as facts. racism is typically deeply rooted and its easy to hide. not a whole lot of overt racism these days. the article did a good job of finding objective statistical ways to show it though. and, id be interested to see how other cities in Texas compare. my guess would be that Austin would be among the least racist.

The task force asks the city to develop a “local dedicated fund” to alleviate institutional racism in Austin real estate and housing – they recommend a mandatory linkage fee of $2 per square foot, which could raise $60 million annually and create 400 housing units at $150,000 each. The 10-year goal should be $600 million.
So they want a $2 per square foot tax on every new building? On a 2500 sq ft house it would cost you an additional $5000.

I guarantee the whole study was set up in order to eventually set up this type of
Bull S. What i got from the article was that the city owes the minorities a whole lot of free stuff And a little reverse racism when it comes to hireing folks.

Default Austin is racist

I couldn't make it through the first 5 paragraphs! What nonsense. Austin is as crazy as ever. Best move I ever made getting out of there. If we didn't have that gigantic capital building there, we might just be able to vote to move the capital to a town more suited to being the seat of power for Texas.

What a bunch of white on white hate and professional race hustlers. Jeez Luiz! It doesn't get any less racist than Austin. Sure, racism is there- it's everywhere. But there's more racism in the minority neighborhoods than there is in the white ones where most white Austinites hate themselves for being white and try to do everything they can to prove their not racist. I HATE racism - TRUE racism. But this article is just a bunch of whining by cream puffs with more education than common sense. No wonder this country is falling apart. It's like a solution in search of a problem. Shut the heck up, find a job producing something, quit whining, treat EVERYONE with respect and get some religion - problem solved.

Friggin Austin.

Lets see, here we have a study on racism. The people doing the study basically lose their jobs if no racism if found.

And I didn't read anything about white students with higher GPAs and SAT scores getting rejected from U.T. in order to let minorities in. Now that's racist.

Someone needs to define racism for me.

If I don't see whites rioting/looting but I do see blacks rioting/looting am I racist if I point that out?
What if I need someone to help me with my next chess move and I choose a white guy instead of a Hispanic, does that make me racist?

I agree with the post above. Everyone needs to find something productive to do and shut up. Treat everyone with respect until they don't deserve it.
