Minstrel show origins & Robert E Lee tribute

By: Old School SC

It has racist origins. Time to do better. The Eyes of Texas, once sung at minstrel shows, plays at football games and other sports events at the University of Texas at Austin. Athletes at the university in place of the anthem, which has lyrics that were in part inspired by the words of Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general.So Minstrel show origins and tribute to a traitor. Glad you are ok with it.
