Dallas NAACP: get rid of lottery
Group maintains it hurts minorities and the poor
Tyler — Members of the nation's oldest civil-rights group say they are frustrated by poor and minority Texans spending their money on tickets instead of necessities such as rent or health insurance, and they believe that the lottery isn't putting enough money into public education in the state.
So they unanimously voted this month to encourage state officials to end the lottery. East Texans talk-back on the group's idea with our news partner: KTBB and host Garth Maier.
