Young Conservatives of Texas at it again!

Today there was a lot of buzz surrounding a particular event that is scheduled to be held this Wednesday on the UT Austin Campus. The Young Conservatives of Texas are no strangers to controversy. Just last month, they held a bake sale in which prices were determined based on ethnicity.

I couldn't believe my eyes. How could they think this was ok? It's not. It's blatant racism and sexism. The sad thing is that many people were supportive of the message. I was outraged. I didn't understand how people could still have this type of mindset in 2013. I was baffled and just when I didn't think things could get any more offensive, I wake up to this...

 

 

It's not a joke! This event is scheduled to take place. The purpose of the event is to "spark a campus-wide discussion about the issue of illegal immigration, and how it affects our everyday lives." The only thing this event has sparked is anger! Their plan for a discussion on the issue has backfired as it has only paved the way for more conflict. This is ridiculous and I'm ashamed that these people have the privilege of calling themselves Longhorns. I'm not the only one who feels this way...

This is unreal. How are there actually people who participate and promote these activities?

This is so hateful, disgusting, and inhumane. We know people with such ignorant hatred exist, but it is always shocking to see them in action.

Very sad news. They don't deserve to call themselves Longhorns:(
