Texas Invokes the Ghost of Jim Crow

A "Hispanics Keep Out" sign displayed on the front of an Azle home has stirred up unease for some residents in the Tarrant County neighborhood.

"It does offend people," said Dahlia Scarbro, a neighbor. "It's offensive, but it is his property."
Many residents said they would like to see the sign, which has been up for months, taken down.

"Well, you know, I don't care," said a 72-year-old woman who answered the door at the home.

"I'm upset about them coming over here illegally, too."

The woman did not want to disclose her name.
