The County Bush Calls Home

From Holden:

Chimpy’s fake ranch lies in McLennan County.

McLennan County commissioners on Tuesday declined to adopt a resolution apologizing for lynchings in the area in the 1800s and early 1900s.

But after rejecting the Community Race Relations Coalition’s document by a 4-to-1 vote, commissioners said they would work on a resolution they all could accept.


At least two commissioners have said they oppose an apology because the lynchings happened before current leaders and residents were born. They also have said the murder or rape victims of the black men who were lynched should not be forgotten.

Yeah, we all know that all the black men lynched in McLennan County must have been guilty.
