One Response to “KKK Dorm at Texas U May Finally Get a Name Change”
Okay, people, this ain’t worth getting all het up over. Hell, the dorm I lived in at Rice “only” thirty-odd years ago was all-female, and named after an oil millionaire (who donated the building) and declared that women had no business getting an education.
If he was a Confederate soldier, he’s been dead for awhile, y’know? The times, they have changed a little. The reichers are still screeching about “a black in the White House,” but there IS a “black” (well, half) in the White House, by such an overwhelming majority that we beat all of Herr Karl ‘Goebbels’ Rove’s dirty tricks and devious plots.
Pick your battles. Right now, it’s clean energy, internet neutrality, taxing the wealthy to pay back what they cost (and jobs at all, for that matter), and the upcoming mid-term elections. We won a serious fight on regulation of the crooks this week, but it ain’t over until the end of foreclosures.
Walk your dog for half an hour and you’ll see streets named for everyone short of Stalin. Me, I’m more pissed off at anything named for Ray-gun. If old Russell, whose specialty is tort law, not civil rights, wants to whine about the name of a minor building at a college best known for its football team, then he’s obviously running out of things to do.
