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.

God bless them.
One arrest for drunkenness, one for failing to listen to an “officer”... Tough night at Ole Miss, BUT nothing like it is made to sound!
That’s all we need. More ‘evidence’ we are racists.
The years of federal occupation didn’t damper all the fire out.
He knew what happenned last night
Gators aren't supposed to cry.
“...More evidence we are racists...”
Maybe its time we responded that we’re not prejudiced. We base our feelings on empirical evidence. After carefully reviewing that evidence we have decided that we should be racists.
To paraphrase the film YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, A riot is a terrible thing...but its about time we had one!
I do not care what they call me so long as they know that I am their enemy.
Wow. Does the reporter think John Wilkes Booth mightve been in the crowd? Amazing how actual racist students everywhere else hold anti american protests regularly and it never makes the paper, but this does. Additionally, why is the university bad-mouthing these students? Is this unconstitutional? Finally, if there’s a more disenfranchised demographic than southern white Christians I’m eager to hear it. They have every reason to protest the policies of Obama and his minions.
One kid burned a Obama/Biden sign.
“Finally, if theres a more disenfranchised demographic than southern white Christians Im eager to hear it. They have every reason to protest the policies of Obama and his minions.”
Actually, blacks are even worse off, thanks to Obama.
I was updated as it unfolded by my friends daughter that attends the college.The kids were teargassed but no report of that.I told her to tell the other students that they are the new hippies and to rage against the machine.
They don't care, as long as everybody else is worse off as well, makes things more equal.
Perhaps they were crocodile tears.
And you just cant fix stupid.Sad for the blacks that voted for obama because they will be hit the worse but oh well....
I can just see the holder DOJ swooping down and launching a full scale investigation with trials and public floggings.
And plenty of hate crimes.
Yes, would be guilty of a ‘hate crime’ were I there.
I hate dumb arse pols, commies, libs, socialists etc so may as well ‘perp walk’ me outta there....
Someone mentioned tear gas, if the kids can play their cards right, they should be able to sue..
Oh wait...that is right NOT an establishment ‘protest’.
the onset of the UNSA - United Negro States of America
Or as Rhom says, “never let a good crisis go to waste”
