Racist frat party photos raise questions about Mississippi lieutenant governor


Millsaps College Members of the Kappa Alpha Fraternity pose for a photo wearing Confederate army garb. This photo was in the 1994-1995 yearbook of Millsaps College.

JACKSON, Miss. — As politicians across the country face increasing scrutiny over their high school and college yearbooks, photographs of Mississippi Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves’ college fraternity wearing confederate Army clothing have resurfaced, as well as stories about a racist 1994 party.

Reeves was a member of Kappa Alpha at Millsaps College when the fraternity threw a party featuring Afro wigs and Confederate flags tied around pledges' necks. Some attendees were allegedly in blackface and used racial slurs in a confrontation with two students.

Images from Reeves' college yearbook were published Friday on the website of a Democratic super PAC American Bridge. The story was also reported by the Huffington Post.

Reeves is the Republican front-runner in the 2019 governor's race.

5. I'm confused. What questions do the photos raise?

They photos are, what they are.

The people in Mississippi that were going to vote against Reeves, are still going to.

The people in Mississippi that were going to vote for Reeves, are still going to, and a lot of them are going to feel better about it, after seeing the photo.

7. No, Reeves is not the front-runner in the governor's race.


Attorney General Jim Hood (D) polls ahead of Reeves by two points currenty, and has outpolled him for months.

8. Isn't that what Kappa Alpha is all about?

Back in the day, the Kappa Alpha chapter at my little State college was pretty blatantly neo-confederate.

10. KA has always been associated with the Confederacy

The national chapter didn't ban the wearing on confederate uniforms at events until about 10 years ago.
