Racist Ole Miss students riot over Obama win (VIDEO)

Racist Ole Miss students riot over Obama win

11/7/2012 6:56pm by John Aravosis

Just go away.

Mississippi is also the state, by the way, in which 46% of Republicans think that inter-racial marriage should be illegal. So let’s not to be too surprised that their children start violent protests when a black man wins the presidency. Racism starts at home.

More from AP:
A protest at the University of Mississippi against the re-election of President Barack Obama grew into crowd of about 400 people with shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media. Two people were arrested on minor charges.
The university said in a statement Wednesday that the gathering at the student union began late Tuesday night with about 30 to 40 students, but grew within 20 minutes as word spread. Some students chanted political slogans while others used derogatory racial statements and profanity, the statement said.

The incident comes just after the 50th anniversary of violent rioting that greeted the forced integration of Ole Miss with the enrollment of its first black student, James Meredith.

Riot over Obama election at Ole Miss


A Romney voter, who went to Ole Miss, left a comment about the mess on the university newspaper Web site:
Protesting what?

It’s called democracy. This sounds like a bunch of immature 18-year-olds (Kincannon is a freshman dorm) who were raised in an ignorant little bubble and are now embarrassing themselves and everyone else associated with Ole Miss, the state of Mississippi, and the entire South. They are too naive/immature to realize how stupid they look and how embarrassing this is for all associated.

They need to realize it’s 2012 and there is a lot they need to learn and understand about the world outside of the communities they grew up in, the college they go to, and the state they live in. They are all too self consumed because to this point many of them have lived a very comfortable/easy life. Mind you, I went to Ole Miss, I am from the South, and I voted for Romney, so I am not calling out the opposition but rather people I can relate to.
Not everyone thinks it’s “democracy”:




Trump went on to call for a “revolution” in response to a democratic election. Nice.

At least all is not lost. As the blog I linked to above noted, in good news, Ole Miss elected it first African-American homecoming queen this year. It may sound like small bits, but that kind of social acceptance, and cultural normalization, is a big deal when you’re young It sends an important message about race and tolerance, that apparently Mississippi (and Alabama too) is still in dire need of.

Frankly, I find their straight-up racism rather refreshing after years of right-wing code-terms for the n-word. If you're a racist asshole, own it, don't about it.

I'm waiting for these people to drive themselves so far right into oblivion.

2 arrested as anti-Obama protests escalate at Ole Miss

Published November 08, 2012

| Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. – A protest at the University of Mississippi against the re-election of President Barack Obama grew into crowd of about 400 people with shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media. Two people were arrested on minor charges.

The university said in a statement Wednesday that the gathering at the student union began late Tuesday night with about 30 to 40 students, but grew within 20 minutes as word spread. Some students chanted political slogans while others used derogatory racial statements and profanity, the statement said.

The incident comes just after the 50th anniversary of violent rioting that greeted the forced integration of Ole Miss with the enrollment of its first black student, James Meredith.

Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones promised an investigation and said "all of us are ashamed of the few students who have negatively affected the reputations of each of us and of our university."

On Wednesday night, about 700 people held up candles and called for racial harmony outside the administrative building at the university in Oxford, countering Tuesday's protest over Obama's re-election.

Police were initially alerted to Tuesday's uproar by people who saw Twitter posts about it. The students were told to leave, but about 100 came back later. One person was charged with public intoxication and another with failure to comply with police orders. There were no reports of injuries or property damage.

Rumors about the situation were fueled on Twitter after the university's student journalists posted a video referring to the gathering as "riots." The student newspaper posted a video of the crowd, but much of what the students said in it is unintelligible other than the "Hotty Toddy" cheer, which is common at football games and other school gatherings.

One picture that spread rapidly on social media shows people burning an Obama campaign sign, but the university hasn't confirmed that the picture was taken on campus. The chancellor said some photos shared on social media showed things that were not seen by police on campus, but the reports of uncivil language and racial slurs appeared to be accurate.

Some students and teachers used social media to condemn the conflict.

Ellen Meacham, an Ole Miss journalism instructor, posted on Facebook that "anyone who calls that a riot has never read or heard anything about 1962."

She was referring to when Meredith became the first black student to enroll at the university on Oct. 1, 1962. Federal authorities deployed more than 3,000 soldiers and more than 500 law enforcement officers to Oxford during the integration. An angry mob started an uprising that killed two white men. More than 200 people were injured. Ole Miss sponsored lectures and other events this year to commemorate the 50th anniversary.

"Now, 50 years later, about 2 percent of the overall student body goes out to protest when their guy doesn't win the presidency and a portion of that small percentage displays the ugly strain that still infects too many in our student body," Meacham wrote.

In a state with a 37 percent African-American population, Ole Miss now has a black enrollment of about 16.6 percent. The current student body president, Kim Dandridge, is the fourth black person elected to the post.

Jones said the campus was back to normal Wednesday.

The university was planning an event for Wednesday evening called the "We are One Mississippi Candlelight Walk" to condemn the protest, according to Thomas J. "Sparky" Reardon, vice chancellor for student affairs.

It's so funny how we fought the civil war 150 years ago and yet you look at the electoral college map and it's basically a sea of red in the south and a sea of blue in the northeast. It is just two entirely different cultures in these two regions and always has been.

Re: Racist Ole Miss students riot over Obama win (VIDEO)

^^

I guess it harkens back to the point that Obama made about how the US is still one country despite being one of the most diverse countries in the world. While it seems the US seem to be lagging behind say Europe on some social issues, it is because of its diversity that any milestone made in any stance is closely watched, because it would have happened in a spirit of compromise that is unparalleled anywhere else in the world.

Poor idiots...

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Some of the states should just secede from the union. They just have a different ideology and will never change.

Lol they would never. They need the wealth generated by the West Coast and the Northeast corridor.

And we need the food that they produce.

Re: Racist Ole Miss students riot over Obama win (VIDEO)

the sad part is that these are college bound young people, meaning that the hate cycle perpetuates and will not die off with the older, anti-civil rights generation...

It's as much a reflection of the fact the GOP has ceased to exist and been replaced by the Dixiecrats as anything else.
