I am not Texas.

I am not Texas.

I am not the Texas in the dozens and dozens of United States v. Texas & Texas v. United States cases.

I am not Texas.

I am not the Texas that prides itself on being ranked at the very bottom when it comes to quality of K-12 education.

I am not Texas.

I am not the Texas that prides itself on maintaining White privilege and perpetuating racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia.

I am not Texas.

I am not the Texas that neglects the homeless and sick and immigrant and transgender.

I am not Texas.

I am not the Texas portrayed in the media and celebrated in stereotypes. 

I am not Texas.

I am not foreign to Texas for it is our Texas.

I am not Texas.

I am not Texas because I resist the status quo and ignorance.

I am not Texas.

I am not Texas because I resist being disempowered.

I am not Texas.
