The Austin American-Statesman reports that the Texas NAACP and the state’s Legislative Black Caucus are set to meet with Texas Longhorns President Jay Hartzell later today. The NCAAP is reportedly opposed to the university’s report on “The Eyes of Texas” song, as well as the findings by the committee, which was convened on behalf of studying the song.

“We’re opposed to it,” NAACP President Gary Bledsoe told the Statesman. “People don’t understand these students on campus don’t stand alone.”
