to those who want to let the student body decide on the school alma mater, you dont placate a bully by giving into their demands. You want to change things at UT, get your degree, go make a difference in the world, get yourself elected to a state office, get yourself appointed to the BOR, donate $$$$ to the university and name any building you want, but Im not going to allow you to change tradition at my University because your feelings are hurt. You haven't earned the right to change things..What happens next year when the class decides they dont want to play football because its too violent or they dont want to be represented by a steer because they are vegan, or they are offended by a Tower being lit up because they dont worship any building that depicts a phallic symbol...You see how absurd this could get. Stand up for your alma mater, its your heritage and your history they are trying to change

I'm glad you don't work for the University. The University has already removed Jefferson Davis and Robert E Lee. Too bad if you don't like the possible removable of former losers from the confederacy and racist. In your own words you haven't earned the right to decide what changes.

This is not your University. It is also their University. They are bringing in income to the school. How much have money have you brought into the University.

I choose to respond to you no longer because I simply don’t see your point, other than attempting to attack my intellect and character. 

Have a nice evening.

That works fine for me. If I want to respond to your post then I will do so. If you do not wish to respond then I will assume it is making you a better person.

Yeah I don’t have to explain myself to you or anyone on here. And I won’t have my words be interrupted the way you feel. It’s a hypothetical question that apparently questioned your integrity. That’s on you, not on me. I’ve said that wasn’t my intent. That’s that. You can keep saying it questioned your integrity.  But since I’ve already said that’s not the point, either you can accept that or you can keep talking about integrity. Which I guess means you’re questioning mine. 

Why would I question yours?  I don’t know you or your past. You put a question out there that sounds one way to me and I asked a question back. It’s sort of like me saying the point of The Eyes is not racism but people keep questioning it. Either those questioning that can either accept that or not.

Oh you’re gonna get the right wing talking about how false that is. And to bring it back around. It’s funny people will say that. I took a class at UT called Southern Political History taught by Professor Enelow. We actually talked about this & the fact it happened. But I see so many people pretending that Southern Democrats didn’t switch parties. 

the parties never switched.

Strom Thurmond, 1964

dek Diana Walker

 

Running for President as a Dixiecrat in 1948, Strom Thurmond declared that "all the laws of Washington and all the bayonets of the Army cannot force the Negro into our homes, our schools, our churches and our places of recreation." By 1964, with civil rights marching onward, it was clear that his fellow Democrats disagreed. Thurmond jumped ship, joining the Republican Party that year. The first major Southern pol to cross the aisle during the civil rights era, the South Carolina Senator marked the beginning of the GOP's appeal to white, Southern conservatives, and helped turn a former blue state red.

Whoo right on cue. You do know it’s a fact that Southern Democrats switched to voting Republican because the Democratic Party at the time wanted to push civil rights to court black voters?? This isn’t some opinion. It’s been proven. But really none of that matters. I tend to end the stupid argument of the Democratic Party being the party of slavery & the KKK with this simple point. African Americans overwhelmingly vote Democrat. So you either have to accept that we know which party best supports & represents our needs or you think we are overwhelmingly a dumb race who continues to vote for a party that apparently never switched. That we continue to vote for that racist Democratic Party. So do you think we are a dumb race?? Oh and my intent is simple, I just want to know if you think African Americans are dumb. If they impugns you, I’m sorry.

AFTER President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, he reportedly turned to his press secretary and lamented that Democrats “have lost the South for a generation.” Johnson's judgment was optimistic.

A higher percentage of Republicans voted for the civil rights act than Democrats.

Look at you, you’re so clever, trying to put words in my mouth and paint this picture into an either or proposition. Not gonna fall that crap. In answer to your question, no I don’t believe the black race is dumb, I’ll say it again, no to your question. I do believe many of them have been duped in to believing the Dems lies and gotten them to vote for them. I also see on social media many black individuals now coming in support of Trump. Do you think all black people who vote Republican are dumb?

After this election, Democrats in the South went back to voting for Democrats.
Only Two Congressmen switched parties in 1964 after the Civil Rights Act, Strom Thurmond and Mills Godwin. That’s right, Only TWO.

What words did I put in your mouth?? So you don’t think we are dumb. But you think we’ve been duped for decades?? Wow that’s some high line tightrope walking. How is it that we have been “duped” for so long?? What is the reason?? You see on social media that more black individuals are voting for Trump?? I haven’t seen that & I don’t know many people in my family that are. Trump polls pretty low with African Americans. Actually more African Americans think he’s a racist than support him. I guess if we are going by what we see on social media, that makes it so. Trump got like 12% of the African American vote. That’s higher than Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney who was going against the first African American president. They showed he got the lowest % of the vote compared to others who weren’t going against Obama. As for thinking a black person voting for Trump is dumb. No I don’t think they are dumb and I won’t insult them by saying they were duped. They just have different view points & priorities than a majority of African Americans.

All history scholars (I freely admit that yours truly is not one), please correct me if I am wrong:

I did some very quick research (on the internet) and discovered interesting facts:

1)  Jefferson Davis was a staunch defender of States Rights. 

2) Jefferson Davis didn’t own slaves until he inherited his brother’s plantation.

3) As President of the Confederacy, he proposed freeing all slaves, if they would fight for the South. 

I always was taught that the War Between the States was fought more over States Rights than anything else. To this day, we see examples of that between Republicans and Democrats. 

Unfortunately, in our larger cities, the incident with George Floyd has given many an excuse to pillage and destroy any and every symbol, and take lives for no reason, except they are angry.

I am attaching a link to a Washington post link that discusses the pros and cons of destroying or taking down statues of controversial figures.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/pulling-down-confederate-statues-is-a-powerful-statement-but-it-wont-erase-the-shame/2020/06/12/59a8aeb0-ac33-11ea-94d2-d7bc43b26bf9_story.html%3foutputType=amp

I also read more recent information about the officer who killed Floyd. He should have been removed from the Minneapolis PD long ago.  The number of complaints, reprimands, disciplinary reports, and suspensions for excessive force in his file was unacceptable. His commander on up should be investigated. In my opinion, the 2nd degree murder charge is warranted. 

Please stay safe, everyone. This is a very troubling time in our country’s history.

I'm not going to get into the greater debate on race here, but just about any historian will tell you that trying to compare political parties across several decades--much less centuries--is absurd. There have been several realignments in the voting blocs, and major realignments generally occur every 30-50 years, with minor realignments happening even more often. The platform of the parties change partially based on their voting blocs, and the issues obviously change over time. This doesn't mean that the two parties "switch" entirely; it just means that some policy positions shift. Over time, enough of these minor (and major!) shifts occur that the party's platform looks almost unrecognizable when compared with the platform from several decades prior.

Trying to link traits (good or bad) from a party from 150 years ago to the party that has the same name today is, frankly, laughable.

So does that mean linking traits to the Eyes of over 100 years ago is laughable?

In my opinion? Yes, although "laughable" might be too strong of a word since I can't claim to have had the same experiences as other people weighing in on this. But like I said, I'm not going to let myself get sucked into that debate, so that's all I'm going to say on that.

Taking a post from facebook as fact is not something I do.  There are some facts in here but I would like to see sources cited.

For example "though more Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act than Democrats".  - Where's the source for this?  Is this just an opinion?  What criteria is being measured here?  What does it even mean?  Democrats were in majority of both the Senate and House during Johnson's presidency.  So I'm not clear on the statement.

"We ARE and will always be the Party of FREEDOM & Individual Liberty."  -  Tell that to the kids in cages.

More republicans by percentage voted for the act than Democrats. This is a count, not an opinion. The ONLY criteria is the vote itself. No other criteria would be required. And yes, Democrats held a supermajority.

Jim Crow laws that Obama loved to mention were the product of Democrats.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Crow_laws

The KKK was an organization founded by Democrats to intimidate blacks and keep them from voting and gaining rights.

The GOP is, by historical measures and today's actions, the party of less government and more freedom. The Democrat/Socialists are the exact opposite and proudly hold that stance of more government, less freedom.

It was Democrat-led states (Alabama – George Wallace) who had to have federal troops sent in to insure blacks could attend schools there, and also in Arkansas.

It was West Virginia who elected the Grand Dragon of the KKK to the US Senate – and where the Democrats embraced him for 40+ years. It was Joe Biden who gave the eulogy for the grand dragon at his funeral.

Please tell me you're not hearing any of this for the first time. Have you ever done any research into political history at all?

The Civil War wasn't just about slaves huh. LOL. Yeah it wasn't about slavery, it was about economics. If was economic helpful to have slaves pick your cotton and not have to pay them instead of paying a wage. 

The confederacy were losers. They were the aggies at the time. Just like the aggies that didn't like the rules of the Big 12. The south didn't like that they didn't get to keep their slaves and committed treason against the United States of America. We need to change the name of anything having to do with the confederacy losers. 

Well, you could have just said "I'm not real familiar with Civil War history" and we'd be just fine. I'd believe you after that post. lol

You're attempting to compare a football conference with the Civil War? lol You did that, not me. lol

Yes, it was a COMBINATION of issues (as I actually said and you were prepared to ignore here) that caused the South to secede. It was the North that decided we needed to go to war over it. But the North had imposed taxes that were enforced nowhere else in the US except the south. They made things pretty difficult and were quite unfair. The North isn't innocent here.

Slavery was part of the combination of reasons, but if you truly want to convince someone you know little about history – go ahead and say it was all about slavery.

We can thank the players because these names need to be changed. Robert Lee Moore the racist is easy to change. Painter the loser from the Supreme Court and the wrong side of history needs to go.

Littlefield part of the losers of the confederacy can go and Hogg and his Jim Crow support can be changed.

 

What’s in a name?: A look at the names on buildings that Texas athletes want changed

The University of Texas has a long tradition of naming campus buildings after school presidents, influential donors and members of the UT System Board of Regents.

On Friday, dozens of Texas athletes requested that four specific building names be changed due to the individual’s personal history. All four have been targeted previously by critics about UT’s racial past:

Robert Lee Moore Hall: Built in 1972, the “RLM” building is the tallest on campus and home to the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy. Moore was nationally recognized as a math scholar and taught at UT well into his 80s. He died in 1974 at the age of 91.

However, Moore also was well known for being racist and was in favor of segregation. He generally refused to teach black students, and famously once told a student, “You are welcome to take my course but you start with a C and can only go down from there.”

Painter Hall: First constructed in 1933, the UT physics building has gone through several reconstruction projects. It’s named after Theophilus Painter, or T.S. Painter, as he was known — a zoologist who also studied human chromosomes. He later served as UT’s president from 1946-52.

In 1946, Heman Sweatt was denied admission to the UT law school. At the time, Painter said that Sweatt was “duly qualified for admission into the Law School at the University of Texas, save and except for the fact that he is a Negro.”

With the help from the NAACP, the legal case reached the Supreme Court, which decided unanimously in Sweatt’s favor. UT was forced to allow black students into graduate school, though undergraduate students could still be segregated.

Littlefield Hall: George Littlefield’s legacy is all over campus. A major in the Confederate army, Littlefield had business success and was appointed a UT regent in 1911. He became an influential donor and still has several things on campus named in his honor — like the LIttlefield House, Littlefield Fountain and a dorm and cafe.

UT athletes specifically referred to changing the Littlefield Hall dormitory and added a bulletpoint “to include the patio cafe and fountain.” It was built in 1927 is the oldest resident hall on campus.

Hogg Memorial Auditorium: As the governor of Texas from 1891-95, James Hogg championed higher education and proposed some of the nation’s first laws against lynching. However, he allowed railroad cars to remain segregated, setting the stage for the Jim Crow era in Texas.

Hogg Auditorium, which opened in 1933, has long been a facility for performing arts. Outgoing UT President Gregory L. Fenves announced in December 2018 that Hogg’s statue would be removed from the South Mall along with three others.

Hogg’s statue was moved near the Hogg Building, east of the UT Tower. The Will C. Hogg Building is named for the governor’s son. Fenves has called Will Hogg a supporter and advocate for UT.
