My rights in Texas are not protected. Neither are yours. Neither would these free agency athletes' rights be, which is why I fully agree with the NAACP. I no longer have the right to my reproductive health. My voting rights have been slashed. And I no longer have the right to not get COVID, because, quite honestly, it has more reproductive rights than I do. Transgender kids have also been targeted.
I could leave. I could move to a bluer state. Maybe a sane person would. But I won't. I can't fix the problems here in Texas if I'm not here to vote in Texas. I'm going to fight for the state I love, for my home. I'll vote, I'll march, hell, I'll run for office if it comes down to it. But I'm not leaving. I'm fighting.
So one day I can say, "Free agent athletes of the NAACP, come to Texas. You'll love it here."
