No Place but Texas: Less Racism in Texas School Board

This “No Place but Texas” post might become a series. God knows there simply isn’t any other place on earth but Texas for stuff like this. 

You might recall: 

Chris Harris, an elected member of the Hooks Independent School Board, posted a viral image of a Ku Klux Klan member with the caption, “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas.”

The Hooks Independent School Board was going to meet to discuss Harris. It was probably all they could do since he was an elected official. The only way he would be removed from the board is through a recall election, if that was possible, of if he resigned. A day later Harris gave the Board something else to talk about:

A northwest Texas school board member has resigned after posting numerous comments on Facebook referencing the Ku Klux Klan in the wake of the Ferguson riots and protests. 

Chris Harris, formerly on the board for the Hooks Independent School District, apologized for his posts — which included an image of a KKK member with the caption “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.” Harris has since taken down his Facebook account, Raw Story reported.

Problem solved. Harris seemed to have a recent history of Facebook racism running through his veins. He claimed his racist rants were caused by being accused of being a racist. Go figure.

Well, one gone out of our school system. Who is next?
