Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings has said that he is more afraid of “white men” than Syrian refugees. Despite his fear of whites, however, the mayor manages to get by living in a ritzy neighborhood that is more than 92 percent white and only 1 percent black.
The former CEO of Pizza Hut, Rawlings lives in the prestigious Preston Hollow neighborhood, which D Magazine described as “almost entirely lily white” as part of a feature piece titled “Why are the Best Neighborhoods in Dallas Still Segregated?”
The cushy neighborhood, which is home to former President George W. Bush, golfer Jordan Spieth, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban (among other celebrities), actually had a white-people only residency requirement on the books as recently as 2000.
According to D Magazine, the Preston Hollow community where Rawlings resides is 92.4 percent white, 4.8 percent Hispanic, 3.9 percent Asian, 2.8 percent “other,” and a measly 1.0 percent black.
