Wait, is that bad?
Just joking about you being a drunk bot @littlebluelw
I don't know if I agree with this. I just wanted to say hey little, nice to see you peek the head in too hot
I have no idea how I got sucked back in here but I promise I will just be a little bit at a time. Hope you are well my friend
Someone told me that Robert E. Lee used to end speeches with the "Eyes of the South" and that someone copied it and changed it to fit Texas.

I don't know. They're standing up to some pretty stiff opposition. They think something is important and they're taking a stand. More than most kids their age would do.
But let's face it, they've got a lot of power they haven't used before. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out, who gives in.
They can always have that scene from Pee Wee's Big Adventure.
What is your definition of racism?
There'll be no giving in left to do when the good ol' boys in the Stetson hats who pay for the scholarships find other things to do with their money. And that's exactly what they will do when they're told it isn't their show anymore.
I guess it could get down to that, huh? You want a good competitive football program, you may to accept some changes around campus to get that.
Or maybe the players will give in the schools hold with 'you want to play here, you play by our rules ...'
Like I said, it'll be interesting.
That's sure to help them win recruits
Then who are the kids you say view life as a bouquet of flowers?
The players could lose. This power play is beyond intriguing because it is two different leverage points.
I personally am hoping the players prevail. The "wins" they get here will cost the big dogs nothing. The money will keep flowing even if the Dogs give in entirely.
Of course the Dogs will craft a "win" out of it themselves. And I'm not against that either.
In fact, if I were advising them (why in the world did they not ask??) I would say go much bigger. But these younguns will learn.
As brief as I can.
I start with the generally held definition of racism being a belief about the superiority of one's own racial (or ethnic) group over other racial or ethnic group/s. This base definition is at the core of white supremacy and used more to describe individual acts.
But that's just the start.
Racism found across a system/s is about institutionalization of power in which that power is exerted in the oppression and discrimination of people of other races/ethnic groups. It is discernible by patterns of racism/bias/discrimination in the aggregate.
For instance in housing, criminal justice, employment, health, politics, and sports. In extreme forms, slavery and Jim Crow.
This is systemic or institutionalized racism.
There are several driving factors responsible for these patterns: 1) Policies that cause their entrenchment 2) Racially biased beliefs of those in decision-making power (note, the person may or may not even be aware of his bias) occuring in the aggregate and/or 3) Racial animus.
[Edit] Need to add a fourth: Ignorance...which permeates throughout.
I should also add, racism is often used interchangeably with racial discrimination or with racial bias or with racial prejudice. This is more @ a conventional shorthand in everyday language usage.
I'd honestly like to know how you would define racism too. I anticipate there being some disagreement here. Or maybe not.
The next (and final) world war will feature multiple countries dropping nukes on each other, thus reducing the Earth to a smoldering pile of ashes. There will be no winners.
N...I hear you. A WORLD WAR is when all citizens get out and do what is necessary. Losing 10,000 in an island campaign, with 28,000 casualties are pretty staggering number, you would agree. ( Pacific campaign).
To his point, Guadalcanal was fought with a whole bunch of 19 year olds.
Peleliau ( sic) was a slaughterhouse for the Marines. That kind of ALL HANDS ON DECK. AND NUCLEAR? that boggles the mind. Taking out a carrier with hypersonic cruise missiles takes out $1 billion and about 5000 sailors. Anyway, my numbers are not exact, but, it is a societal will thing.
Some creatures might disagree.
Every bit helps.
So I would assume all the Robert E Lee schools across the South will be remanded soon?
Actually I’m surprised they’ve lasted this long....since his statue was taken out of Robert E Lee circle in New Orleans several years ago.
