University of Alabama “Delete Dixie” Initiative

AL.com

quote:

A University of Alabama group wants to take “Dixie” out of “Yea, Alabama,” the popular school fight song. The Delete Dixie Initiative is “a coalition of students, faculty, and friends who wish to create a more inclusive campus culture,” according to the group’s website. “Our mission is to remove the word, ‘Dixie’, from the Alabama Fight Song (’Yea Alabama’) and replace it with a more appropriate term, such as ‘Bama.’”


quote:

“This is not an official student organization that is registered with the University,” the group told AL.com. “Delete Dixie Initiative is a social movement made up of students, faculty, and community members that are advocating for change on UA’s campus. The Delete Dixie Initiative is one step toward changing the culture of our campus and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.”


Show me any group of students who have enough free time to organize such an initiative, and I’ll guarantee there’s not one Diff. Eq. or Organic Chemistry enrollee in the bunch.

Is there anything worse than a self-loathing Southerner? I've yet to find it.

these lefty goody two shoes don't get it. They mess up their future efforts on something on down the line "reasonable" over something ridiculous like this.

The bed wetting brigade at LSU has been after "Tigers" for 15 years since it became well known that the nickname was chosen from a Civil War brigade from Louisiana.

That will go over like a lead balloon.

Similar to when they tried to ban "Dixieland delight" and the students would sing it anyway.

Hopefully they tell them to pound sand like Texas did their students and faculty when they tried to ban The Eyes of Texas

So stupid. It's in Auburn's too:

Give 'em hell, give 'em hell*
Stand up and yell, Hey! War...Eagle win for Auburn,
Power of Dixie Land!

Triggered a flashback. I had pretty good handwriting till I took that class.

Afterwards I never wondered why doctors scrawls looked so bad.

Did you grow up to become a doctor or did you become another field in STEM?

The fact Ole Miss has not played From Dixie with Love for years is an absolute travesty.

It won't matter.

Some of UT's biggest donors are shall we say "NOT politically correct".

UT still bends over backwards to kiss BLM ass. Cut stadium attendance to 25% during Covid, and then sent an e-mail encouraging attendance at a BLM march.
