LULAC AND THE NAACP HAVE SLPIT ON THE HISD BOND PROPOSAL!

WHERE DO YOU STAND ON THE BOND PROPOSAL?


It was announced Sunday the Houston Independent School District secured an important endorsement for its proposed $805 million bond issue from The League of United Latin American Citizens. They held a news conference at the almost 60-year-old Berry Elementary School to announce its support for the bond proposal.

This comes as African-American leaders and the NAACP have said they will fight the bond proposal saying it doesn’t provide for much-needed new schools in predominantly black neighborhoods.

Is this the beginning of a public parting of ways between LULAC and the NAACP because each group is concerned about its own community? Where do you think this will lead and is it a surprise the two civil rights organizations are going down two separate paths? Leave your comments on the Insite!
