U. Texas Austin Students Advised Not to Wear Cowboy And Indian Halloween Costumes
Why is Hollywood exempt?
When is this generation of young people going to rebel against the politically correct culture making their college experience so miserable? And by the way, why is Hollywood exempt from these rules?
FOX News reported:
University of Texas: No cowboy or Indian costumes
Students at the University of Texas in Austin have been advised not to wear cowboy boots or cowboy hats on Halloween.
Telling a Texan not to wear cowboy boots is like telling Colonel Sanders not to fry chicken.
Fraternities and sororities were instructed to avoid Halloween party costumes and themes that might “appropriate another culture or experience,” according to The College Fix.
Students were issued a 29-point checklist to ensure they avoid any controversial or offensive trick or treat regalia.

Here’s a brief list of the costumes and themes considered harmful by the University of Texas:
Cowboys and Indians – anything “Squaw” or any generalized depiction of an indigenous person or peoples;
“South of the Border” and “Fiesta” themes;
“Ghetto Fabulous” or “Urban” themes;
“Pimps and Hoes” theme;
“Trailer Trash” theme;
“Chicks and Hicks” “Rednecks”;

Cultural appropriation? Are these people ignorant of Texas history? In the mid-1800’s cowboys in Texas were still fighting with Comanche and Apache and other bands. People wear cowboy boots every day of the year in Texas. It is way past time to tell the SJW crowd to STFU, and a good cracking over the head may become necessary if they don’t.
So I guess going as a Longhorn bandsman… er bandsperson is outlawed.
