University of Texas hires a Black band director
« on: May 20, 2021, 08:16:26 AM »
Here's another case of hiring a Black person to smoothing things out now that it has been revealed that the Texas song 'The Eye of the Tiger' is racist.

Since the new band director did graduate from LSU, I guess the new chant will be, "suck that Longhorn peepee bytch."

Basically, that's what LSU and Texas have recently done.  Like the song goes, I'm sure both are being watched at all times.

Correction:  He's a Texas grad who was an assistant director at LSU. Either way, they are trying to shield behind him due to their racist tradition, without apologizing or making amends. I'm sure there are other traditions that they have that offends Black people.  This one was blatantly obvious once pointed out.
