You don't know a damn thing about Texas and you're especially ignorant about Austin. Have you ever spent any time at all in Austin or are you simply talking out of your ass?
"It is a fact that they are there as a warning." Dude, seriously... that's one of the most moronic things I've read on this site.
The simple fact is, there are racist assholes in every state. Texas definitely doesn't have a monopoly.

When you, as a white male in America, have experienced disenfranchisement all your life and had to endure massive racism in everything from your social life to education to employment, THEN you get to whine about "black privilege".
Until that day, your ignorance is offensive.

Ever been to Spy bar? Or any of the old Bandito hang outs
near Brownsville? Texas, in case you didn't know is a big damn place
Pal. And knowing the owners of a place called Ginneys I'm fine with everything

I think you got it !!
Any idea what "emerging" issues they are talking about? IMO, the only "emerging" issues are the ones this administration is creating.
There's some legislative action going on...
There's must be some hidden "issues"....

Austin is one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. and is confronting increasing questions about economic and racial segregation as real estate prices skyrocket around its urban core.
Raul Alvarez, board president for the East Austin Conservancy, said the stickers are likely in response to gentrification in the area on Austin's east side.
"I certainly share the concerns about the history and culture and affordability that's being lost because of the rapid development, but our organization tends to focus on what it is we can do to preserve what makes East Austin unique and not focus on strategies that divide the community," he told the Austin American-Statesman newspaper.

Tons of the hip, non-hip and rabel are in Austin this week for SbySW (a music scene of international proportions).
You can find anything and any type in town this week. I stay away.
No.1 racism will never die because it lives in all of us.
No.2 Texas is one of those states that is highly charged with
redneck racists. To the MAX. And the signs may not be there
purely out of that racism. It is a fact that they are there as a
warning. I know of many taverns and barrooms in Texas that
if a black person stumbled into accidently. It could very well
cost him his life. Good reason for the signs.

Yes, racism lives on in all of us. No matter if we never think a racist thought or utter a racist word, we're still just damn, dirty racists.
Yup, so many bars in Austin where a black dude could get murdered if he accidentally walked in there. I've never been there but I just know it, all those damn racists.
Now black neighborhoods on the other hand......peaceful, quiet, serene, safe, really, really safe......especially for white people. Blacks aren't racists, they love white people.
