What the Media Won’t Tell You About the So-Called “Anti-Obama Protesters” at Ole Miss

Peace rally at University of Mississippi

Protests continued at the University of Mississippi Wednesday involving students opposed to the re-election of President Obama and Vice President Biden.

But the protesters were outnumbered by about 700 students who gathered to rally for peace. Students attending the rally held up candles and called for racial harmony at the Circle outside the administrative building in Oxford.

“We Are One Mississippi. We will not stand for hate,” tweeted @CristenHemmins.

Anti-Obama Protesters at Ole Miss

The Washington Post and other media outlets choose to call attention to the scattered racial protests at Ole Miss rather than the peaceful rally.

“A crowd of about 400 people shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media.” writes The Washington Post.

Two people were arrested. No injuries were reported.

“All of us are ashamed of the few students who have negatively affected the reputations of each of us and of our university,” said Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones.

From The Washington Post:

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.

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.

      Racism was always alive – maybe it was on the DL for a bit but I believe with the election of President Obama in 2008 it resurfaced with a vengence. Fear and hate are extremely powerful emotions.
      Unless there’s a mass cleansing like Sodom and Gomorrah it’s not going anywhere. If anything it will probably get worse since President got 4 more years.

      Sandra, you are no different than the media you pretend to loathe. Even if there were only a few students protesting it deserved to be reported because I am sure had the results gone the other way the Pres had lost & ppl rioted, it would have been reported.

      I don’t get you. Back in 07 when I first started coming to this blog it used to be funny/entertaining but now there’s so much animosity & hate. We don’t all have to agree but some of the rhetoric you use is downright insulting. Saying on twitter that we(black folks) only voted for the prez so we could “one up” the white man? So only blacks voted huh? In the same breath your hate for the Prez comes across as if you are trying to your white counterparts. You hate everything he does, says…I mean come on. Mitt was not my cup of tea, neither was Palin, but I don’t hate either of them. Maybe you should consider what makes it cross the line into hatred, and when you figure it out maybe you can share it with the ppl you are trying so desperately to impress.

      And no I don’t care about being banned. At least what I had to say was thoughtful & not hateful because I well understand the 1st amendment & your entitlement to your opinion. I also don’t believe in censoring those whose opinion differs from mine. :coffee: Just be respectful

      Sandra can Hypothesize and theorize all the live long day. Facts are facts. Only demographic Romney won was the white male vote. Obama won the Black vote, Latino Vote, Womens’ vote, youth vote, senior vote. to summarize Romney won the racists and Rich votes which equates to the MINORITY VOTE. Hellluuuurr!!

      if anyone watched Obama give his speech, you can clearly see whites outnumbered any other race that supported him. of course a large amount of black ppl voted for him but.. wtf we look like voting for Rommey? so. whomp. this is getting old and tired.

      @WIP I know that & more importantly Sandra does too. Yet she said it & then she started to get a lot of support from her white counterparts on twitter. So it made me wonder, was that why she said it in the first place? Knowing good & well it wasn’t true……

      Honestly I’m just tired. Going to school with some racists spoiled brats in a good old boys town in Indiana I’ve had my fair share of incidents. But it stings fat more when it comes from my own ppl. Like I said we don’t have to agree, I know we are not a monolithic race, but there is something unsettling about the fact that we have to insult & disassociate ourselves from one another on a regular basis. We don’t even realize our true strength because we spend so much time trying to prove we aren’t like the rest of “them.” Newsflash: a racist thinks we’re all the same whether you live in the hood with 4 baby daddies or you’re a big shot in Corporate America so who are we really trying to prove ourselves to?

      One thing for sure.. Pres Obama brings diversity what I thought Omerica tand for!! When you look at the headquaters on election night! Pres. Obama crowd showed love, celebration from all race, character, creed, straight, gay, lesbian and others in the mix.. When you looked at Mitts crow it was not a diversed crowd (Mainly white).. How do you expect to run a country white only pulling support from the old white country club… Its not going to happen! Even Newt Gingrich and other repubs stated that Republicans have to do better and touch the blacks, hispanics, asians, college kids and ipad/ipod generations!!!

      All republicans are out of touch with the peoples reality of everyday living, but the republicans are far so far in the stars with reality of the people!

      We could go on and on about generalities of politics, but one thing for sure and two for certain, Pres. Obama is the closes candidate to the people, and people identifies with people just like them, the same reason why you may like an artists, celebrity or tv show, you try to find identity!!!!
      Now … let me get back to paying taxes, because mitt supporters swears blacks dont pay taxes (They are so ignorant) and far out of touch to believe the nonsense!

      This was posted on yahoo from a commenter.. I agree, America (The people) needs to wake up and stop the division:

      07 November, 2012

      An Open Letter to the Men and Women of the United States Congress and Senate:

      Dear Ma’am/Sir:

      Last night across America elections were won and lost. Today many are reeling with disappointment while others are celebrating. But the election is over and it is time to take you to task.

      You work for the American people, not special interests, not Super Pacs and certainly not for the Democratic or Republican Parties. And if last night’s elections proved anything it is that the American people are not limited to extreme fringes with dogmatic beliefs. We are the “split-ticket” majority, hard-working people who complain about our taxes but still pay them. We expect to get our money’s worth whether it is from a mechanic, a can of beans, a road or an elected representative.

      If America is divided it is because you have divided us. Your unwillingness to work for the American people but rather work for “your side, small fringe groups and even one Grover Norquist” has left us frustrated and concerned not only for our own futures but the futures of our children. All of you are at fault and the blame-game has to stop. There are many people I’ve worked with over the years that I haven’t liked, trusted or agreed with but that did not stop me from doing my job. In fact had I, or most Americans, behaved in the manner that you have at work we would be fired, period. There have also been people I’ve worked with that I would never consider a friend but I respected them and recognized when they knew more about something than I did.

      We Americans love our sports and we want to win. On Sunday’s we put on our jerseys, paint our faces, drink a beer and watch eleven men try to go ten yards while eleven other men try to stop them. We stand for the National Anthem and we salute the men and women who serve us in the military. For brief moments that microcosm of America that is the sports arena will share in our love for this country. But when the song is over and the football-field-sized American flag has been whisked away we again become competitors. Somehow you have mistaken our love for competition as a formula for how you do your job.

      America is not in competition with itself. We are not a sport. We are men, women and children of all races, faiths, ethnicities and ideologies. We are not a homogeneous group. Your job is to do what’s best for all of us. That’s not an easy task and if you’re not up to it then you need to find a new job. While the rest of us heave a sigh of relief that we will have a break in the bombardment of phone calls and vitriolic commercials you need to do the job you’ve been hired to do. We are watching. Just because we have been too busy working, going to school and raising families to be politically vocal does not mean we’re not paying attention. Last night proved that. For us America isn’t politics, it’s not liberal or conservative and no party has a monopoly on freedom.

      Respectfully,

      Martha L. Gibson
