Vickers "Vic" Cunningham, a former criminal district judge now in a Republican runoff for Dallas County commissioner, acknowledged Friday that he set up a living trust with a clause rewarding his children if they marry a white person.

Funny how his relatives waited this far into the election cycle to go public with this...

Either way, I'm guessing his odds of getting elected county commissioner are just about zero now.

How he handles his estate and household isn't the public's concern. Unless you can show me undeniably how it matters to public policy and the execution of his duties, wgaf...

If a private citizen then his personal beliefs are irrelevant. However, I think a county commissioner's beliefs about races is relevant.

Ah yes. The mighty powers of administering public works. "Trash collection in black neighborhoods were mondays & Thursdays, this racist moved it to Tuesdays & fridays"

He'd be considered a hero if he was any other race.

There's always something said when you marry outside your race. We had people on both sides who didn't like we were different races. More so on my black in-laws side than my side. In my case, my in-laws don't mind saying what they think about white people in front of me. Then say to me "but not you." Like that makes it ok. None in our immediate families though.

If any of this story is true, he doesn't need to be holding any elected office.

This. Ask the first generation americans from indian couples if they are ok with their kids marrying outside indian. My friend's parents were mortified when his sister asked if she could marry a muslim.

A persons view on race affects puboic policy. If you want to be an elected public official, expect your personal views to be explored. Holding views negatively against a huge portion of our society should be considered by the voters.

The Cunningham campaign put out a statement today from a gay man to say that Cunningham wasn't a bigot and was very kind to this man and his husband. Turns out the man giving the character reference is a registered sex offender arrested for child pornography. LOL

And what exactly are this guy's views? You can tell his views because of how he treats his kids?

Sounds like a stupid thing to do if he ever thought he would run for office.

He was a criminal district court judge. Imagine being a non-white person before him in court knowing that he has something like this in his will. Do you think that person is getting a fair shake?

I wouldn't want to marry anyone whose family would be happy to have a person like me in it

Thats an odd criteria. I'm glad my in-laws like me. If they didn't, it wouldnt be a show stopper, but them liking likingme certainly has positives.

I have a "gainfully employed" requirement in my family trust.

I'm probably a misogynistic, racist bigot to expect my kids to work.

Same here. Mine may have at first but they quickly warmed up to me. Many Korean parents strictly forbid it and will lose their **** if their child wants to inter-marry.

If Korea or China or Japan were white countries, they'd be "literally hitler". They're not though, so their homogeneous make up and racial pride and nationalism is to be celebrated!
