Breacking News: Dixie Chicks change their name because…RACISM

Country music trio Dixie Chicks has changed their name.
Across the band's social media pages, the women now go by The Chicks. On Thursday morning, their official Twitter handle was changed from @dixiechicks to @thechicks.
The group made up of Natalie Maines, Martie Erwin Maguire, and Emily Strayer, also changed their name on Instagram and Facebook.
A statement on The Chicks' website said “We want to meet this moment.” The term Dixie refers to Southern U.S. states, especially those that belonged to the Confederacy.
The Chicks also dropped a new song “March March" from their comeback album "Gaslighter" that features videos and images from the recent Black Lives Matter rallies.
In early July, fellow country band Lady Antebellum announced on social media that it changed its name to Lady A.
The decision, which the Grammy-winning group announced on Twitter, comes "after much personal reflection" and conversations with "closest black friends" as Antebellum refers to a period of time "which includes slavery."
Band members, Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood, said in a statement they are regretful and embarrassed for not taking into consideration the word’s associations with slavery.
The statement said that they chose the name after the antebellum-style home where they shot their first band photos, and it reminded them of Southern styles of music.
But they said in recent weeks, their eyes have been opened to “blindspots we didn't even know existed" and "the injustices, inequality and biases black women and men have always faced."

The Chicks. It’s their name and they can change it if they want to change it. But seriously, this ‘erasing’ of history and everything that goes along with it seems truly dangerous, especially when we know the people at the center of this movement have their own socialist/communist agenda.

There’s a young lady from Venezuela that’s getting a lot of attention lately for pointing out that this madness is exactly what they did in Venezuela in order to turn the country into the socialist utopia it has become:


Beauty and a brain. I think I’m in love…
In any event, all of this kowtowing to “this moment” is just feeding the protests, the violence and the overt push to the far left. I just really hate to see it.
