MY COMMUNITY IN TYLER TEXAS

Greetings my brothers and sisters.

There are still 600 white families that control Tyler....Like it was 1915....A SUNDOWN TOWN.

BUT,,,change is happening... I moved here 10 years back..I serve at the pleasure of the President of the united states.

But, I moved into a community called Holly Creek Village. 128 garden Homes on 28 private acres. the streets and infrastructure are all ours. The homes sell for $ 180 K. Dues now $135. each month. But that includes all lawn maintenance. Pool and club house...

The police can not come in unless we ask them...This land was never accepted by the city. The infrastructure does not conform. It was originally established as an all white Baptist community. It is very nice......If you can tolerate 80 year old board members.

The homes are two and three bed rooms.....2 bath....all brick.....

But, they are strictly 55 + zoned...mostly old white people that want to keep out the people of color and I have color.........I have been called a nigger...THIS IS STILL THE CIVILWAR IN THE SOUTH.

What we need is people of color (11 homes on the market )..People that want to enhance the value of these homes......We are gated.....Did I say the police can not come in unless we ask them.......

These 28 acres sit in the heart of TYLER. With proper guidance...raise the dues.....to $200. and the propertys will be worth $250 K ++++ inside of 5 years......The crown here are at the jumping off stage.

Do you want to be in the change movement..and actually be on the cutting edge of all lives matter.

Help those ignorant bible thumps to understand that God created man in his own image.

REJOICE in that everything is possible.

Michael Williams
