Purple House Protest Pops Up in North Texas

A protest raged for years in central Lubbock, as a homeowner painted and repainted his house purple to protest a city ordinance. Now the "purple protest" is catching on in other parts of Texas.

A North Texas man painted his house purple with hot-pink polka dots and a neon-yellow trim. The Euless man is protesting three warnings city officials gave him in the past four years for minor code violations. He probably won't get in trouble for his latest act, as Euless has no city ordinances about house color.

The same can't be said for the Lubbock landlord. The owner and tenants settled citations with the city in 2004. Part of that settlement included restoring the house at 25th and Indiana to a normal color.
