Transcript less than $8,500. But Third Ward cannot be accurately described in terms of poverty. Dr. Naomi Lede heads TSU's Urban Resources Center, and is a Metro board members. She said, "Third Ward is probably one of the few neighborhoods in Houston where you have an abmixture of classes, from the very lowest to the upper middle classes." She said some of Houston's wealthiest black citizens live in Third Ward. In explaining the social distance between UH and Third Ward, Lede noted, "The majority of the residents in the Third Ward are of a different color from UH. UH does not mirror the community in which it is located and that creates a problem of interaction and a problem of communication." The psychological distance between UH and the Third Ward was high-lighted by an image survey UH had done in the summer of 1985. The survey results prompted Houston Post columnist Lynn Ashby to write, "UH has just received a damning report on how it is perceived in the community." Ashby went on to say, "The location of the campus is about the worst place in Houston for a school," and "the athletic program gives everyone the idea that the school is made up mostly of blacks." "This kind of publicity," Lede said, "creates an unnecessary friction between UH and the community." She said, "That would tell you — 'we are not part of the Third Ward community, the Third Ward community is black.'" "That is racism," Bullard said. "That's all it is. Now how does the University deal with white racism out there? Better the university deal with it than the folks in Third Ward." Bullard summed up UH's dilemma with a question. "How do you deal with racism in the larger society and not be a willing participant in the process?" Dr. Robert Bullard, a sociologist at TSU. Photo by Daniel Alder. 81
