University Of Mississippi Students Riot Over Obama Victory

Source: http://www.buzzfeed.com/johnstanton/university-of-

Students from the University of Mississippi took to the streets late Tuesday night to protest President Barack Obama's re-election, blocking streets and burning Obama campaign signs until police broke up the mini-riot.

Shortly after midnight, angry students gathered outside the campus for a protest, which reportedly turned violent, with students throwing rocks, using racial slurs and burning Obama's campaign signs, according to the Clarion Ledger.

Police were able to quickly break up the disturbance.

Ironically, prior to Tuesday night conservative bloggers had warned of plots by black youth to riot if Obama lost the election, a charge that police dismissed.

Don't blame the parents....too much.

It is known that environment and peers, not parents, have significantly more influence on "kids" than anything else (besides genes).

They are not responsible for their kids' personality. The peers have far more influence. The most obvious example is, kids born to immigrants do not have the accent of their parents, but of their peers. And you know very well few kids are like their parents.

"The Saudi prince whose post-9/11 relief check was rejected by former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani has found a more willing recipient in the city for his millions: the head of the Ground Zero mosque project.

"The same Saudi potentate, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, owns the biggest chunk of the parent company of the Fox News Channel outside of the Murdoch family...."

And...free speech and all has to prevail, but there needs to be set a universal standard for reporting news that gives notice when something is opinion and when it is factual reporting. Fox false news is NOT "news" and should not be able to label itself as such.

Beautiful states, beautiful music (the blues, bluegrass, that old honky-tonk country, many elements of rock-n-roll), some damn good food, and yes, many lovely people. Cultural problems abound (although even those are far more complex and less polarized than a single presidential vote tally can convey) but we're working on it.

81. I've stopped in Philly, passed through Hoboken and Newark.

I'm more familiar with Burlington, Montpelier, Portland, New York, and Syracuse (have family there). I also have family in Ridgefield, CT.

I've been through Michigan, but not the Detroit part. Went up to Rothbury to sell pizza at a music festival they do up there. It's a beautiful state and the festival was like Bonnaroo but with cooler temperatures, more trees, and less litter.

I haven't yet found a place in this country that didn't interest and charm me...well, I grew up in Georgia and have unpleasant memories of the people and culture I encountered there, but it has its redeeming qualities, too.

(oh yeah, and I passed through Baltimore on the Chinatown Bus from D.C. to New York...where my bus driver almost got in a fist fight with some kind of local attendant...that was an interesting memory, for sure!)

I liked Lexington, KY....not many bugs like elsewhere in the south.

Hey, I'm entitled to not like certain areas of this Country. I don't like deserts, for example. And you are entitled to like whatever parts of the country you like.

I like chocolate ice cream better than vanilla. Are you going to say I should like vanilla as much as chocolate.

We all have a right to our opinions.

What you think is nice, I might not.

You are really starting to prove my point about the South and how everyone must like grits, deep-fried food, and humidity.



Go enjoy yourself. And I will enjoy myself north of the Mason Dixon. It's too damn hot and humid in the South. I can barely handle the summers in Ohio. Do you want all of us Yankees to invade your South? I hear that the Research Triangle in NC has become yankified and it's not exactly well received.

So let's just agree to disagree about each other's likes and dislikes. Geez.

humidity -- that stuff existed before I was around.

While we are entitled to like or dislike certain areas of the country, I can't equate chocolate ice cream preferences with how we view our fellow citizens -- there is too much animosity toward others in this country, and regionalism so proves the point. I eat the deer I shoot (just got finished boning out the latest deer for burger and sausage), and have one 10-point set of antlers on the stereo cabinet. I will have a well-stocked freezer by the end of the year! Incidentally, the vast majority of hunters eat what they kill, and quite a few more donate meat to various food pantries. Been going on for years.

12. "I will be so happy when all these old bigots finally die out."


I always shake my head when I see that quote. Today's youth weren't there in the 70's and can not appreciate just how much this country has regressed since then. They see themselves as so much more Liberal than the generation before theirs, and they may well be correct.

But I saw the generation *after* mine go batshit crazy Reactionary. Sadly, I did see a lot of my generation regress to join them.

Coming of age in the rural Bible Belt during the 70's there certainly were racists. But they kept it in their circle as racism had become socially unacceptable. Today they wear their racism with pride.

George Will pointed it out right as it happened, absolutely shocking everyone else on ABC's This Week as he said, "Washington socialites will never say it out loud, but what they are celebrating is that Ronald Reagan made it socially acceptable to say 'nigger' again."

50. A lot of young people do a lot of things to deal with these situations.

I rode with fifty other students to OWS last year, and have attended or seen students put together several protests, rallies, information sessions, etc. since then. We are active in using social media, both to spread news and our causes, and also using it strategically to enhance our social entrepreneurship endeavors. I know a lot of young people who canvassed in Ohio and other places to GOTV for Obama.

Frequently our tactics are less confrontational, but the kids I know who are involved in social justice work are using tactics now that they consider favorable to the long term institutionalization of more just and sustainable policies, and the establishment of alternative economic models that do not require a trade off between profit and community well-being.

32. The county is infected

by a commercial mass communication system predicated on lies and deception regarding matters of reason and emotion. It doesn't matter whether it's selling hate or hamburgers, fear of fries, cars or candidates. It exists to persuade you to buy something, and about $400 billion is spent annually to do it, not a lot less than is spent on public education.

41. And this year, the 50th anniversary of racial integration at that shit hole.

They tried to explain it away after the riots in 1962--"oh, it was outside agitators," and look where we are today in 2012-- riots, yes, riots because we lawfully elected an African American president. They should ALL be ashamed, but they won't be. I'm sure they're proud of their ugly heritage. I can't imagine UNIVERSITY students behaving like that--really ANYBODY, but god, these should be the years they have to experience diversity, and look what they do. Shame, shame, shame. This is a HUGE blight on the University of Mississippi's reputation, even if the university didn't sanction that kind of behavior. Given its history, this is really beyond the pale.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste but in this case they don't have one. Inbreeding is the problem with these kids.

....to eliminate racism at their school. Unfortunately, a few racist right-wing thugs have completely erased all of that work.

And once again, some DU posters will seize on this story as yet another reason to bash ALL of the folks who live in the South.

70. Phil Ochs Is Still My Favorite Folksinger

 

Last edited Fri Nov 23, 2012, 01:13 AM - Edit history (5)

I hope his timeless messages in his "topical songs" enhances your life. I am better for knowing and listening to his music. Try not to look darkly at him after reading about him:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Ochs

I had heard that he'd had his larynx damaged from a mugging in South America, got depressed about losing his great singing voice, returned to the States, and subsequently took his life. This information is not detailed in his Wikipedia page. So, I'm not sure if it is factually correct or not. Tom Paxton wrote a song about Phil Ochs' suicide:




Billy Bragg adapted a song about Joe Hill in tribute to Phil Ochs:




There have been others as well. The Phil Ochs fan club is large and global now.

http://musicvideoswiz.com/artist/Phil%20Ochs




I sing this one to myself on road trips. It is my favorite. His voice is as pure as it gets:



And now...Phil Ochs' "signature" piece, "The Crucifixion" or sometimes known as, "Crucifixion."



It's been said that "Ochs wrote 'Crucifixion' during a two-hour car ride in the middle of his November 1965 concert tour of the U.K."

67. Very Ugly Episode.

 

The late Phil Ochs was the greatest political folk singer of all time. Had he been alive to witness this huge insult he would surely be ashamed. Phil was a hero of mine.

Every student who is identified should be sent to Diversity Training for their very intolerant behavior or expelled.

However, the GOP has been infiltrated by people who are very intolerant and the President had been targeted from day one.

As a Vietnam Veteran I am personally insulted by such uncalled for behavior in 2012 or any time.

If anyplace can lay claim to being the "Yale of the South", it is probably Duke.

Like much else in America, Yale and the rest of the Ivies have changed considerably since Dumbya was a Deke. These days we practice academic rather than social elitism: "the best and the brightest". And our large endowments make an Ivy League education more affordable for some than state schools like Ole Miss.

He went down to Oxford town
guns and clubs followed him down
all because his face was brown
better stay away from Oxford town.

Oxford town around the bend
come to the door, he couldn't get in
all because of the color of his skin
what do you think about that, my friend?

Me and my gal, and my gal's son
we got met with a tear gas bomb
don't even know why we come
goin' back to where we come from.

Oxford town in the afternoon
everybody singin' a sorrowful tune
two men died 'neath the Mississippi moon
somebody better investigate soon."
