University of Texas will rename its football field after Ricky Williams and Earl Campbell. The field had been named after Joe Jamail, a billionaire attorney and donor to the Texas program. Jamail’s family suggested the change. A magnanimous gesture on their part and a good move by the university. Those two running backs probably brought in more in donations and fan following than almost anyone else.
The Tyler Rose....god I used to love watching him play

I am going to call it J Chambers. Like the ring of that.

Concord has Jay Robinson and so does Charlotte with a middle or elementary. Another great man. Anyone who worked for him will tell you he was mentor and role model for their career.

Well crap. Might as well change the American Flag because every NAME, every STONE SCULPTURE, and everything else that is now suddenly an insult to everyone was created under the Red, White, and Blue. Those same colors are still flying today. While we are at it, lets eliminate and get rid of the Bugle that plays "Revielle" and "Retreat" because after all those patriotic tunes have been played before our time by warriors, American Soldiers, and the Brave.

The statements blasted above are simply a "follow my lead" gig to continue the political conversation under a sporting website. We have reached the point about people wanting to change just about everything. And everything that is an insult today was as we all know established before anyone here was thought of.

We have all walked across the same schools, across the same names, across the same sculpture, and across all the physical "insulting" matters for hundreds of years and never once did it light up into a nationwide anxiety disorder. But because a couple people, one group, or organization, Pressure, Threat, and Fear has been placed on Governing officials, Sport team owners, Commissioners, Chancellors, Principals, and the list goes on. If these request are not accepted these leaders may find themselves fired from their job and/or position.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said:
"
Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love... Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding. As you press on for justice, be sure to move with dignity and discipline, using only the weapon of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Always avoid violence. If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in your struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.

Another point concerning nonviolent resistance is that it avoids not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. The nonviolent resister not only refuses to shoot his opponent but he also refuses to hate him. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction ... The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.
"

Now History is being destroyed to the point where our childrens children will not have anything to look back on.

Changing names does not change the problem. Burning black business and/or business will not change the problem. Violence will not change the problem. Pressure and threats will not change the problem.

You cannot change the problem with the same mind that created the problem - Albert Einstein

This is not Peace. This is corruption.

I truly encourage the idea of LOCKING this thread immediately.
