Readers Respond to Wick Allison’s ‘Race and the Rich’ in Dallas Column

The results of the little poll we took the other day are clear-cut.

The results of the little poll we took the other day are clear-cut: FrontBurnervians agree with Wick by a 2-to-1 margin that local and state leaders should alter the tax system that allows Dallas Country Club and Brook Hollow Golf Club to receive an exemption even as they have no black members.

In the June 2010 issue of D Magazine, Wick argues that segregation in the city’s best neighborhoods will hurt Dallas’ future. We’ve gotten a number of letters and responses to this column. Our sister newspapers, Park Cities People and Preston Hollow People, which also ran the article last week, have had four readers cancel subscriptions because of it.

Here’s a sampling of some of the responses we’ve received.
