Richard Spencer’s planned appearance at Texas A&M University has created an outcry among students and made headlines nationwide.

The white nationalist came into the spotlight when he shouted “Hail Trump” and “Hail victory” to Nazi salutes during a recent speech in Washington, D.C.

From Texas Standard:

Outside the Memorial Student Center at Texas A&M University a group called “Texas A&M Anti-Racism” practiced protest chants.

Their October 6 “No More Emails March” was one of several demonstrations this semester. This one was in response to multiple mass emails from university President Michael K. Young addressing on-campus racism – action protesters such as Emilio Bernal say doesn’t go far enough.

It’s September. The kids are in school. The weather is (maybe) thinking about starting to get cooler and the college football season is finally upon us – Rice officially kicked off the season last night with a 46-14 road loss to the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

But, opening weekend is the first time fans get to see whether their school’s rebuilding projects are finally ready. And, as game time approaches, you can’t help but feel there are still some "fixer uppers" – like from HGTV’s Chip and Joanna Gaines.
