Ole Miss grad student here. The William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation on campus is sponsoring a We Are One Mississippi walk tonight at six local time: https://www.facebook.com/events/20189719…

Fratty assholes don't speak for all of us. They're just the ones who get the press.

Here's hoping that those Real AmeriKKKans have racism-rage induced aneurysms, and then we elect a Latina lesbian in 2016 to finish them off.

@2 - it'd be a full blooded cherokee as president would seal the deal in my opinion

For anyone who doesn't detest folk music, the Chad Mitchell Trio song "Alma Mater (About Ole Miss)" is always worth a listen... and is apparently still relevant.

@1, good point.

@7, war has been seen by that party as way to advance its own interests since independence. Slavery was a justification for attacking the south and a way to keep the British from intervening in the war.

The past isn't dead, it's passed out in a frathouse basement, choking to death on its own vomit.

It was actually about thirty drunken frat boys and about a hundred or so underclassmen who showed up to see what the hell was going on. The very next night (earlier this evening), I'm told over 1000 people showed up for a candlelight vigil protesting against racism. Please do not judge Mississippi by what its most retrograde elements have to say while hopped up on Jim Beam and false courage.

New tourism slogan: Alabama, at least we're not as bad as Mississippi!

The best thing about Alabama is that it keeps Mississippi from actually touching Georgia!
