Texas high school reportedly silences 'Dixie'

"Dixie" is actually about a black and was popularized by black minstrel shows so it is NOT anti-black

A Texas high school has reportedly silenced its traditional rendition of “Dixie” during football games, as communities in the Lone Star state debate how to handle vestiges of the Old South.

The Austin American-Statesman reports that Travis High School in Austin began singing “Travis Fight” after a Rebels score during football games instead of the long tradition of singing “Dixie.”

Austin school district spokesman Alex Sanchez said teachers at the 1,300-student school have discussed changing the school’s fight song for a year. Austin’s school board didn’t vote on the song change, he said.

Officials at Hays High School in nearby Buda, meanwhile, have decided to keep the traditional fight song despite a racially-charged incident in May in which two students allegedly wrote racial slurs and urinated on the door of an African-American teacher.

Political Correctness is a form of stupidity

I used to think that only steers and queers came from Mexas, but it's obviously stary-eyed liberals as well. I wonder if the fact that most of the public officials running our southern cities all have Mexican names has anything to do with the South becoming more politically correct than the NE. Hmm...

The South will never rise again if this keeps up.
