Texas State Solicits Submissions for Renaming Residence Halls With Racial Conditions

Texas State Solicits Submissions for Renaming Residence Halls With Racial Conditions

“Names submitted must be distinguished Hispanic, Latino or Black alumni who have made significant contributions to the university.”

The submissions have to meet certain racial criteria but the whole effort is being described as an act of diversity and inclusion.

FOX West Texas reports:

Texas State University brings diversity to the forefront as it accepts name submissions for residence halls

Texas State University is bringing diversity and inclusion to the forefront as it accepts submissions to rename the Angelina and San Gabriel residence halls at the school’s San Marcus campus. Two unnamed streets at Texas State’s Round Rock campus will also be named during this process.

Names submitted must be distinguished Hispanic, Latino or Black alumni who have made significant contributions to the university. The university created a naming task force co-chaired by Professor Gloria Martinez and Associate Professor Scott Bowman.

“The university has been tremendously diverse for a long time now,” Bowman said. “We’re really putting forth a concerted effort to make sure that everyone feels welcome, everyone feels honored and that they have a good lasting experience at Texas State. So, this is just a part of that process. “

Is this legal?

Not that I think they care. Just curious.

    Sure, as long as hispanic, latino and black taxpayers provide the majority of support for this tax-supported institution.

      Perfect and truthful names for their dorms.

      Criminal College Administration #1

      Criminal College Administration #2

      Criminal College Administration #3

      etc.

      etc.

Left-wing racism in action. “Diversity” is just the term that the current crop of racists use to hide the truth.

So they admit the top hispanic, latino (they use both words) and black alumni are less distinguished than the top white and/or Asian alumni.

Alfred E. Newman Hall not okay?

So my guess is that that bequest in the will of Stonewall Whitesonly for a new dormitory is going to prove a bit of an embarrassment.

It seems a bit incongruous that they are replacing Hispanic names. The Angelina and San Gabriel names come from the Spanish and Mexican heritage of Texas (once part of Mexico).

Why not Hall A, Hall B and Hall C ? I’m sure intellectually that would be fitting.
