Some students on the Ole Miss campus had a difficult time accepting the reelection of President Obama.
The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports “students were heard shouting racial epithets about Obama and African Americans in general.”
The Daily Mississipian also reported racial epithets were exchanged, and the protest started in one place and ended in The Grove.
Police were called to the scene, according to the Clarion-Ledger, and the crowd broke up around 12:30 a.m.
The report also cited Twitter user @CaMeshaLaShay, who shared a photo showing males burning an Obama/Biden 2012 sign. The paper pointed out, however, it was unclear if this photo was taken on the Ole Miss campus.
WMCTV Channel 5 quoted Ole Miss journalism student Margaret Ann Morgan’s twitter account. “Onlookers say people- black, white, etc- throwing rocks at cars. Students of all races yelling on rebel drive. Lots of racial slurs.”
