Making Dallas Even Better

Mother Jones Pays a Visit to Highland Park

Writer Josh Harkinson, who is from Dallas, begins his look at 75205 from Highland Park Village or, as he calls it, “a strip mall clogged with Ferraris and fashion boutiques.”

Nothing that anyone familiar with “the Bubble” doesn’t already know, except perhaps this bit about Dallas Country Club, which references Wick’s column about the club’s de facto segregation:

Lambasted as recently as last year for not admitting African Americans, Highland Park’s 117-year-old Dallas Country Club revealed, after repeated calls, that it does in fact have black members but wouldn’t say how many or when they joined. A Parkie friend whose family belongs to the club told me he has never seen a black member.

    They are hiding out from the liberalism…

    I am not sure where they are hiding out at though, any suggestions?

    This isn’t a very good story. All he does is quote some numbers and rehash stories that papers already wrote about.

    Given the stringent requirement$ to join, the long waiting list, and the average quality of the golf course, I can find many better clubs for folks of the African-American persuasion. DCC is a pedigree club, but everybody knows a mutt without a pedigree can be just as lovable.

    Says a lot about Dallas that is still has and protects a Whites, and really no Jews, Country Club.

    Dallas a gamer preserve for the most vile Right Wing behavior.
