Alabaster, ALEscape from Birmingham
This is the sequel to "Escape from New York" staring Kirk Russell, but called "Escape from Birmingham" staring the dopes of Alabama. The people in this area Hoover, Alabaster, Calera, etc. talk about wanting diversity, (to make themselves feel better than thou) e.g. So they RUN from Birmingham which is 73% black with horrible schools. They think they are running from the enormous crime and pollution in Birmingham (not that Birmingham is neat. It is not suitable for your dogs or snakes to live). he crime in Birmingham is higher than Los Angeles, New York City, and New Orleans; both violent and non-violent. Pollution is among the highest of cities. Crime has followed the "Escapees" from the city to their little locales. Criminals go where the money lands. They want the small town feel, quality of life, so there are more gated communities going up in the area than anywhere else in the USA! Education is quite poor, unless you are one of the privileged ( the people that say they want diveristy!!) who live in exclusive communities that are over 97% white with very high incomes. The people in the area signed a petition/agreement between blacks and whites to commit to get along and live peacefully together. It is so ironic that the dumb-bells who signed this petition were really proud of signing it. AFter a few years this petition meant nothing and races migrated unto themselves. Only in this Alabama would people need to sign an Agreement to commit to get along. No wonder Condolisa Rice is the worst Sec. we have ever had in the history of the nation. If you come plan to home school, live in a gated community, be very careful and aware of your surroundings when visiting Birmingham, do not expect quality cultrual quality events, expect some religious fanaticism, black beligerance and anti-white comments. Plan to move somewhere else like a good number of Univ of Al graduates have done. They have moved to Texas, Fla., Mo., Kansas, IA, and have not tried to be "Escapees" to suburbs.
The Woodlands, TXNot What it seems
This community and in fact what is called The Conroe School District is a fanatical Protestant religious cliche. Most recently, a Bible course has been implemented in the school system to study. specifically, Protestant Religion and use The king James verision of the Bible. It is simply amazing that such blatant disregard for the diversity and beliefs of other people in the community of well over 300,000 should exist in a public school system and in the 21st Century. It is consistent with the racist views of both the school board and the Superintendant of the School District and clearly verified by the poor performacne of the Conroe High School. The Conroe High School is composed mostly of latinos and blacks, whereas the remianing high schools are mostly white ( greater than 95%) vs Conroe (Whites less than 20%). The Principal of the Conroe High School hired five years ago to improve educational standards has done nothing as the rating of this high school is still very poor. It is certainly apparent that rather than catering to the fanatical religious zealots and introducing a Bible study course driven by the white protestant community that attention should be directed to improving the performacne of the minority high school. I expect that the KKK is forming up and being directed by the School Board and that soon we will have signs appearing approved by the Superintendant and Director of Curriculum telling people of color not to be on the streets when the sun goes down.
