  • Texas universities and public schools are facing escalating tensions on their campuses in the aftermath of Donald Trump's election to the presidency on Tuesday night. 

Here's a roundup of protests and racially charged incidents reported statewide:

From Texas Standard:

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said that by taking a knee during "The Star-Spangled Banner," he's protesting racial injustice and police brutality. The idea was to spark a national conversation about these issues.

Other players have joined Kaepernick, not just in San Francisco and not just in the NFL. Athletes across the country, competing at different levels, are taking a knee – including high school football players in Texas

The group’s executive director, CJ Grisham, says all of these arrests involved people that were either carrying a toy or replica gun or carrying a black powder revolver when they refused to leave the capitol grounds.
