Texas has caused Feelings And then there is Texas... So much has happened to the Rape State of Texas . It's gone from Lone Star to One star over the last couple of months. The myth of the Alamo has been laid out, and how that sausage of myth got made into the Jim Crow South of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Which, with a dash of irony, points out some systemic troubles with Critical Race Theory. Instead of cultural education, and understanding of historic issues, they are now building their own out-rage(d)ous fortune . But that's not all the Ape State has been up to these last couple of months. No, when Texas goes, it goes big.
