this is the image that many Texans WANT the world to see.

I understand that many Texan's aren't total bigoted racists. But a few good apples doesn't save this bunch. Unfortunately like how bigoted racists shoehorn all people of other (religions/races) into the same mold as the bad apples, we must shoehorn all Texan's into that same mold.
Is it fair and just? Yes, yes it is. Until Texan's themselves come around and completely marginalize these people, ostracize them, and shame them into the closet where they belong, this must be the worldview of Texas in general.
These people are just like internet trolls, they feed off of attention. Remove the attention, and they will go away. They really will. While a reasonable thought might be to evoke and eye for an eye response. That would feed them all the more. Ignoring them is the only real way to rid the world of these hate mongers is to ignore them and let them go away.
Austin? It's full of complacent far-lefters that get their news from the Daily Beast and then parrot issues/articles set up to race-bait and divide. So I think you would fit in.
I'd love to know where you got that idea. Lol
The reason that they have to tell people not to bring their guns into the airport may be because many people here have the right to carry a concealed handgun to defend themselves and do just that.
I would also like to know who put farcebook in charge of "marketing" for Texas.
Your "unfortunate" and apparently very brief stops in Texas are not a very good way for you to base a judgement upon the whole state.
Next time you have to come to this hellish place, you may want to see some of the beauty and culture that we have to offer the world.
There is also the possibility that we don't give a rats arse how we are perceived by a bunch of haboobies on the internet.
See what I did there?
Beauty? not so much the climate is pretty much a desert wasteland devoid of anything remotely beautiful
culture, not so much
It's not Facebook, it's Texans themselves that put themselves in charge of marketing for Texas. Social media outlets like facebook and twitter are marketing firms golden cows. Covering a vast area of population and an extended network of viable dissemination networks capable of delivering a message far faster than they can through normal media outlets.
Listen, the reason I bring this subject up is to help YOU help Texas rebrand it's image, You cannot deny that Texas has a very negative image on the worlds stage.
