    (CNN)Texas A&M has canceled a white nationalist protest planned in September, citing safety concerns. White nationalists, neo-Nazis and other extremist groups had planned to hold a "white lives matter" rally at Texas A&M on September 11. The school canceled the rally Monday evening "because of concerns about the safety of its students, faculty, staff, and the public." Richard Spencer, the white supremacist who helped found the so-called alt-right movement, was set to speak at the event, according to the Battalion, Texas A&M's student newspaper.
  • Texas A&M Professor says white people may have to be killed

    Tommy Curry is a professor at Texas A&M. Curry teaches “Radical Black Philosophies” and “Social and Political Philosophy.” He advocates “Critical Race Theory.” This is a black nationalist version of Marxist Critical Theory. Among other things, Curry says that black people should talk openly about murdering white people. In a youtube interview, he says that the murder of white people may be necessary for “black liberation.” Further, he suggests that white people need to fear blacks so much that they believe “death could come for them at any moment.” Currently, interracial murders in the USA involving blacks and whites are...

    Richard Spencer, white nationalist and creator of the term “alt-right,” will be speaking in Rudder Tower this December. Spencer will be speaking on the alt-right movement, a radical offshoot of conservatism which promotes white identity and white nationalism. Spencer’s speech will be focusing on explaining what the alt-right is, and how he believes this movement will affect the United States. Recently, video of a speech Spencer gave at a conference for the National Policy Institute, a think tank for white nationalists and the alt-right, circulated around the internet. Much of the speech included anti-semitic remarks and Nazi rhetoric. At the...

    On Friday night, Northern Iowa’s Paul Jesperson made a shot that nobody ever makes to send his team to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Two days after the Panthers sunk that miracle buzzer-beater from half-court, Northern Iowa got sunk by the greatest-slash-most-horrifying comeback in the history of March Madness —and probably in the history of college basketball. The only consolation for the Panthers: The game was on truTV, so a total of eight people probably saw it happen. With 44.3 seconds to go in the second half, Northern Iowa’s Jeremy Morgan made two free throws to give the...

    Apart from their recent college football successes and their former flashy and party-hard quarterback Johnny “Football” Manziel, Texas A&M University has had a different kind of success: a surprisingly rapid growth in its Christian ministry on-campus. The Breakaway Ministries holds a weekly worship and prayer service at the college’s basketball arena and special events center, the Reed Arena. From its launch with twelve students in a college dorm room in 1989 to nearly 12,000 weekly attendees today, it is impressive to learn about budding Christianity on a major college campus. breakaway ministries The director of Breakaway Ministries, Ben Stuart, was...

    There has certainly been a lot of speculation that no matter what happens with the current NCAA investigation, 2013 will be Johnny Manziel's last season with Texas A&M. And the news that Manziel's parents are selling their College Station home certainly won't quiet that speculation.

Up until 24 hours before the final vote, the measure had been called the GLBT Funding Opt Out Bill, but backers broadened it and took out specific references to GLBT services. One opponent of the bill called it "a facade to deprive GLBT...
