If you like narrow-minded, racist hypocrites- move

I am from Lubbock and until I moved away I didn't realize how screwed up the place is. If you are looking for cookie-cutter preacher's wives with big blonde hair and gawdy jewelry, you'll love the place. There are way too many bible-beaters and I don't think there's one damn democrat in the place! There are about 50 billion restaurants and oh yeah, movies and that's about it. That's why everyone in high school ends up drinking, doing drugs, and getting knocked up. If you're not the cheerleader or the quarterback you might as well be nothing.Its openly racist and NOT a cultural mecca by any means! The only thing I miss is the friendliness- but even that got on my nerves when I was there.

i'm glad you moved!! sounds like it's the pot calling the kettle black. i'm hispanic and yeah there may be some racist here but then what place doesn't have them. having been in the military before i've lived in a bunch of different places. and lubbock is as good as it gets. if friendly people bother you then you might want to ask yourself if you really know what you're looking for.

Lubbock is one big bubble of religious assholes. And their perspective is...."We are a bunch of religious assholes. If you don't like that, get out." So....unless you like that, don't go there. People are friendly, but they are not your "friends". The professional world is mediocre at best because its really really difficult if not impossible to be really good at anything if you spend all your time judging and gossiping rather than on being excellent in business. Its not a great place to be if you are normal. Its like a cult. That Avici video to "Wake Me Up" sums it up as does Natalie Maines' song "Lubbock or Leave It". Dull, drab, same, religious, boring, mean, hateful, cruel while they praise Jesus...its like that. If that's not your thing, don't go there.

Wow. I am moving to Lubbock in September. Everything was very nice when I was there. It was hot (mid August) but managable. There was a lot of opportunity. Something that was lacking in a big way from where I come from in Ohio. I find it hypocritical that you would complain about Texas in the manner you which you did. You just didn't like the people, OK I get that, but you're coming from Michigan. The only state that is worse of than Ohio is Michigan! Texas as a state kicks Michigan's butt in just about every statistical category. As far as racism goes, sadly that sort of thing can be found in all corners of this country. But I didn't the kind of representation which you described. Religion is big there. I saw a demographic of approx. 75% white and 20% hispanic/ Tehano and both are very religious. Folks from a Mexican heritage tend to have a strong Catholisism roots and it is reflected in there culture. I saw that as a common ground that drew them together. Perhaps the strong religious and moral beliefs are not a good fit for you. You may be better off in Michigan where unemployment is over 15%.
