Austin, home of The University of Texas is the liberal Mecca of the Lone Star State, so it’s not entirely surprising their administration appears to be headed down a reactionary path.

After the statues of Confederate Generals were vandalized, campus officials are considering removing them altogether. Apparently, all history should be polite, unoffensive, and politically correct.

After Vandalism, UT to Weigh Confederate Statues’ Future

Editor’s note: This story has been updated throughout.

On the same day that three statues commemorating Confederate leaders were vandalized at the University of Texas at Austin, campus leaders said they may soon decide whether to remove the statues.

UT-Austin President Greg Fenves announced on Tuesday that he has formed a task force to study the issue. That committee will likely recommend a plan to Fenves this summer. For months, many students have been calling for the statues to come down. That idea has picked up support since the fatal shooting of nine people inside a black church in South Carolina last week sparked national debate about Confederate symbols across the South.

“This is a passionate issue,” UT-Austin Vice President of Diversity Gregory Vincent, who will chair the task force, said at a press conference. “It strikes at the core of what does history mean, and what does it mean today to live in a diverse society.”

The committee’s full membership won’t be announced until Wednesday.

“I deeply understand the concerns of our students who have raised the issue,” Fenves said in a statement. “I have been working closely with them to consider the range of options that recognize the impact that statue has on our students and the need for us to understand and learn from our history.”
