    All I know Sabre is I "woke" up some morning and saw the whole world has gone to hell and a handbasket... whatever that means.
    (And is it "and" or "in"? Lol)

    That's how little spoiled snowflakes and benched professional quarterbacks become relevant (and embarrass their organization, team, family, etc.). Let's all get in a circle and talk about our feelings. And then we wont come out of our rooms if we don't get our way.
    I have been getting calls today about this newest b.s. and I don't think anybody on this board would like to hear what I have said about your university. Suffice it to say that the coach, the band leader and administration and others associated with that school have a lot in common with BEVO. Man did it by knife to BEVO and the rest got it by birth, I guess.
    I am taking my longhorn **** to Goodwill tomorrow. I have spent my last dollar on anything related to that school. Ain't wearing any of their **** again. It's embarrassing.

    Asians did not build railroads in the south or much of anywhere outside the west.

    The Chinese, or Chinamen as they were called then, were much preferred over the Irish, as they drank tea instead of booze, and so didn’t get drunk and cause problem.

    What race built the railroads in America?
    Chinese laborers made up a majority of the Central Pacific workforce that built out the transcontinental railroad east from California. The rails they laid eventually met track set down by the Union Pacific, which worked westward. On May 10, 1869, the golden spike was hammered in at Promontory, Utah.

    Did the Irish built the railroads?
    The labor required to build the first transcontinental railroad was extensive. ... Irishimmigrants were the primary early builders of the Central Pacific Railroad. Management of the initial railroad work was not very inspirational, and pay was not exactly high; as a result, many Irish workers walked off the job.

    Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature but regardless, there were many defendants of these workers that I guess could have issues with railroads and low wages, but what in the heck does that have to do with THE EYES OF TEXAS?

    I have Irish blood. Who do I need to cast my offense over this at? Let me at 'em. Wait...Did we want to build them, or did someone make us? Either way...I'm pissed. The Indian in me is already mad as hell anyway...I mean, I guess I am.. I should be angry about something, right? I mean it...
    I'm not playin' around.
    For real...

    The Irish also drained swamps for canals where trains could not run. Many died. So to mark the occasion they have an all day party on St. Patrick's Day right after Mass.
    https://gonola.com/things-to-do-in-new-orleans/gonola-neighborhood-guide-the-irish-channel. Today there are still bars around New Orleans with signs proclaiming "no Irish".
    It isn't very hard not to find a reason to realize how much better our country is today.
    Creating grievances rooted in a carnival show 12 decades ago and coupled with ignorance of the history of railroad construction is malarkey. Many of my family came from places where they were not doing well (starving and unemployed). They took jobs, often doing anything, often these jobs were dangerous. Many died young. But the future generations, attended the University of Texas and their lives were changed. It is the failure to recognize the benefits The University has paid to the descendants of immigrants to Texas (including slaves and indentured servants) that makes me sick. Disrespecting The Eyes, disrespects Texas, The University and all who have been changed by the benefits it provided to our world.

    Apparently this theory on the history on "The Eyes of Texas" all comes from one UT African studies professor, Edmund Gordon, who made the claim that it "has racist roots."
    He teaches "critical race theory"

    I suspect the select group study to be published in December will undercut the prof’s theory much like what happened to the 1619 project.

    Yeah. If he doesn't have tenure, he should be fired for smearing the reputation of the school.
