City report on Confederate monuments raises idea of renaming Austin
Known as both the “father of Texas” and the namesake of the state’s capital, Stephen F. Austin carved out the early outlines of Texas among his many accomplishments.
He also opposed an attempt by Mexico to ban slavery in the province of Tejas and said if slaves were freed, they would turn into “vagabonds, a nuisance and a menace.”
For that reason, the city of Austin’s Equity Office suggested renaming the city in a report about existing Confederate monuments that was published this week.

How about the union designate one state as a safe place for the hurt people. Regular people can leave and all the offended people can go and create there safe place.

Then get the hell out of my state, and go back to whatever bubble wrapped, cry closet having, screaming at the sky organizing state you came from.
This is Texas, grow a pair or find another place to be.
