DALLAS (WCMH) — A former criminal district judge now up for Dallas County commissioner says he set up a living trust with a clause rewarding his children if they marry a white, Christian person of the opposite sex.
“I strongly support traditional family values,” Vickers “Vic” Cunningham said to the Dallas Morning News. “If you marry a person of the opposite sex that’s Caucasian, that’s Christian, they will get a distribution.”
Cunningham spoke to the paper after his estranged brother Bill claimed he had been a lifelong racist.
Vic Cunningham told the Dallas Morning News he was not racially bigoted.
He said on his campaign website that the trust ” was set-up during a time of concerned feelings about my brother Bill’s gay lifestyle.”
“My views on interracial marriage have evolved since I set-up the irrevocable trust in 2010, and today I would absolutely remove those conditions if I legally could,” he said.
