Black athlete having second thoughts about attending Ole Miss after election night riot. [View all]

A once solid commitment to the University of Mississippi, Carver running back Eugene Brazley, who on Feb. 25 pledged to play for the Rebels next season, is now having serious doubts.

Shortly after Carver’s 36-12 victory over South Plaquemines Friday in the bi-district round of the state playoffs, Brazley expressed concern with the predilection for racism in Oxford, Miss., and said he is now “looking around” and could decommit.

“Some of my people told me they had a riot because of (President Barack) Obama, and some of the players might be decommitting,” Brazley said. “I hadn’t really had a chance to look into it, but I’m gonna get in to it, though.

“I’m definitely looking at Arizona State right now and want to go check them out.”

Just after midnight, Wednesday, Nov. 7, University of Mississippi students gathered on campus near the Student Union to protest the re-election of Obama. The impromptu gathering, which reportedly began with 30-40 students and quickly grew to over 400, included appalling displays of racial intolerance and bigotry, with students yelling epithets and burning Obama-Biden campaign signs.
