Response to guillaumeb (Reply #49)

56. I grew up in segregated Dallas, Texas. Went to segregated schools.

But Dallas became modern and, as a banking and mercantile base, had to be welcome to Yankees from NYC and other northern cities. We had Neiman-Marcus and were proud of it. The old Texas, as least as far as Dallas-Ft Worth was concerned, was a thing of the past. I saw that transition.

I'm not saying racial issues didn't exist, just that Dallas avoided a lot of it. I don't think the JFK assassination didn't hurt Dallas's reputation, just that it was a very different thing from the old segregation thing.
