IT IS TIME WE CHANGE THE NAME OF THE CAPITAL OF TEXAS

I do not care what you call yourself, if you are advocating for the violent overthrow of our country, civil unrest, or illegally stock piling weapons, I fear you and want you in jail.  The words of Stephen F. Austin justified the endless lynching of black men.  What kind of state celebrates such a man.  It is not the statute which offends, it is his words.

These words were said by the Father of Texas long before the Civil War. They have nothing to do with the confederacy. They emulate the pure and unadulterated hate used throughout this country for centuries, including the north. They are the justification for lynching black men. It was not too long ago a black man was lynched in East Texas, where Stephen F. Austin university is based. This is pure hate with no excuses. Will Texas change the name of its capital? No. Will they change the name of the university? No. Will the Democrats speak up on the issue? No. But odd, we ignore words of such extreme ignorance and hate, but a mere statute is what really offends. I am ashamed of Texas and have been for a long time.

My time in Texas is very short.  Once my brother and Buster are gone, I am gone.  I am looking at being an ex patriot in Peru or Ecuador, or a resident of Raleigh Durham. 

Now I challenge my readers to send this to Oliviera, and the Lucios and see what they say.  Hell even Congressman vela the fake Democrat will ignore it.  He would prefer these words go unchallenged than offend the sensibilities of the ignorant.

i researched this quote and found it in many sources.  Fake memes are a dime a dozen which is why I always verify the quote before I share or create one.

You're just like President Trump. You state facts even if it upsets the the snowflakes. You are a true patriot.

I am nothing like Trump. But I get your point. I just got off the phone with the lawfirm I work for to learn we won a very important case. I cannot say what kind of case it was without disclosing the law firm, because there are only probably one or two filed a year. I deal in facts, and the lawyer of Mexican Heritage, but not a Mexican American and a liberal Democrat was laughing with me how scary it is we agree with Trump on some of the things he says. I would not call Trump a racist - but he is an opportunist. His mistake last week was how he denounced the events. He should have said, this country will not put up with Nazi sympathizers or white supremacists and we muat always be willing to denounce them. But violence is violence, and the other side engaged in violence too, but for very different reasons. I think he would have had less backlash.

But let the truth come forward. Statutes hurt no one, it is words which is why I am so bothered by Austin's words. But I will not deny he was instrumental in the creation of Texas. This is a historical fact which should not be forgotten just because of the horrible, painful, vile words he said.

At what point do we destroy history to appease 15% of the population?

BobbyWC said...

i do not want any statutes removed. We need to focus on the current hate and bigotry. i am taking hits elsewhere for saying I am at my limites with small groups in the gay spectrum using the past bigotry to fire all hetersexuals and only hire lesbians in this one particular case. i have no problem with lesbians. I have a problem with them using what happened in the past to justifty their discrimination today which is very very intentional. We fought too hard for equality for these hatemongers of men and heterosexuals to taint what we faught for.

I am for speaking out against all hate - period - so sacred cows - period.

On my FB page I posted video of the 1974 bashing of busses filled with black children in Boston. I remember these white parents were like animals slamming the busses with bats knowing they were injuring children. It is history we should never forget. But that is what it is, history. Our job today is to insure it never repeats itself. We do that by speaking out against all hatemongers - and I mean all - period

I call bullshit on changing the name of the city of Austin. Big difference between a statue and a city name. Those statues of "heroes" of the Confederacy call direct attention to those they depict. When you see a statue of Jefferson Davis it brings to mind Jefferson David and his role in the Confederacy. That is why it is there. When you refer to the city of Austin it is the rare person who thinks about Steven Austin and his racist remarks or even his role in establishing the state of Texas. I will wager that the same is true of most city that carry the name of a person. When you think about the city of Houston to you also think about the man Sam Houston? When you think of Brownsville does the same thought include any reference to Jacob Brown. Probably not.

Nice indictment of our education system. I cannot say I disagree with you.

I'm going to presume you see it has an indictment of the educational system because you think my point was that people don't think about the individual because they don't know the history of that person but no, it is not an indictment of the educational system. It has nothing to do with whether you know anything about the history of Houston or Austin or anyone else. A Texas historian, perhaps someone who even wrote about Sam Houston or Stephen Austin of Jacob Brown, when he hears a reference to a city that carries the name of one of them, doesn't review in his mind the history of the city and/or the history of the person the city was named after. He thinks of the city. Now if he heard a reference to Sam Houston the person, not the city, then that may bring to mind the nature of the individual. But people don't say "I'm going to Sam Houston" or "I'm going to Stephen Austin". It is all about context.

BobbyWC said...

Just becasue you presume people do not associate the name of a famous city with the person it is named after does not make it true. I will bet most people in Austin know it was named after Stephen F. Austin. It is a lot worse to name a city after a narrow minded bigot than erecting a statute very few people will ever see.

But in the end I want the names to remain, I want the statutes to remain. We have bigger problems - like our lack of funding in education. But these biggots now have you focused in on metal instead of real issues of the day which can change a person's life - great job at taking the bait.

I tried to make my argument very basic so you would not misunderstand it. I guess I don't have the skills to do that. But know I know that when you make a reference to the city of Houston your thought process includes a rundown of the history of Sam Houston and his role in history. I just think of the city. The bigot that got me thinking about this issue was you. I really don't care what you think about it anymore then you care what I think. I just decided to offer a different opinion as a kind of experiment. I wondered if you could accept an explanation that wasn't even contrary, particularly, to your own but that didn't agree with you totally. You don't appear capable of doing that. Remind you of anyone? Look to the Whitehouse. By the way, what "metal" do you bigots have me thinking of rather then real issues? But it is true, sometimes I don't think about real issues. Sometimes I think about the weather, the yard, friends, animals, what to have for dinner and what I plan on doing tomorrow and a hundred other mundane things. Thank god you are there to do the heavy lifting for us and keep us focused.
