No more Texas governors for president

In light of recent racist incidents that have occurred in West Campus, students from Huston-Tillotson University, The University of Texas, and residents of the Austin community at large are joining forces to take a stance against these acts of ignorance and hate. There have been several incidents in the West Campus area in the last few weeks, where white students have thrown “bleach bombs” (water balloons filled with bleach) at African American students and their cars in an attempt to intimidate and “white wash” them. 

Other students of color have even been called “dirty n-” while walking to their respective homes in West Campus. These said incidents have been reported to The University of Texas Police Department and University of Texas officials. NO action has been taken to address these issues, until now. We’re calling ALL students, faculty, and staff of Huston-Tillotson and the University of Texas, as well as the entire Austin community to join us in a peaceful demonstration against these incidents and the ignorant culture of hate from which they come.

We will be meeting at the Martin Luther King, Jr. statue on the UT campus at 5:30 PM on Tuesday, October 2, 2012. From there, we will walk  together through the areas of West Campus where the bleach bombs were thrown to represent our solidarity and collective resistance to the hateful acts that have taken place.

 If we continue to over look occurrences such as these, those who carry them out will continue to think that this type of behavior is acceptable, they WILL become more frequent, and you may very well find your own self a victim of such incidents.
