    Longhorn News/Discussion (Non-recruiting)

    https://www.texasexes.org/about-us/history-and-traditions/eyes-texas I read the article. I read what R. E. Lee said. I read what the original song was, and honestly, except for the fact that the original song and The Eyes are both set to I’ve been Working on the Railroad, there is virtually no resemblance except The Eyes of Texas are Upon You. C’mon, for so much to be made about a song that has two lines in common with the original, and means so much to so very many, many people who have also played, sweat, given of their heart and soul, given money when they had it, their time and energy, their sons and daughters to The University and never been racist. Why throw the baby out with the bath water? It sounds like the players don’t want to be forced to sing it. They shouldn’t have to. I do think that they should acknowledge the fans, win or lose. They don’t have to sing, and there should be no pressure on those who want to sing it or not, by anyone-fans or otherwise. Just my 2 cents. Hook em!

    Now I'm really confused. If no whites knew that the song was racist, how can singing it in tribute to the school we all love be racism? There is no intent to demean blacks, but only to honor our university. We stand with the black students and Asian and Latino as well when we all sing together and show our unity. As Sanya said, it is like an anthem. How in the world would eliminating something so revered advance your cause? IMHO, it would have a negative effect.

    To ban The Eyes would be nothing but virtue signaling. F no.
