When I sat down to write this column, my last one for The Daily Mississippian, I thought it would be easy. Graduation for me is right around the corner.

I stepped on to the Ole Miss football beat for The Daily Mississippian at the beginning of the 2010 football season and immediately realized that the Ole Miss football program, which had won 18 games and back-to-back Cotton Bowls over the past two seasons, was headed in a drastically different direction.

The Rebels lost 49-48 that day in double overtime against Jacksonville State, and my first game on the beat was the beginning of the downfall of head coach Houston Nutt.

That should be the lesson that we take away from the heightened discussion of racism on our campus.
The Daily Mississippian, student leaders, and faculty and staff have all published or made outward statements to address the issue of race at the University of Mississippi. It has certainly been a topic of conversation in the past months coupled with the 50 years of integration, ESPN’s “30 for 30: Ghosts of Ole Miss,” and the recent issues erupting after the presidential election. The question is, what happens now?

One hundred and two University of Mississippi faculty members have signed a letter expressing their concerns with how the university handled the disturbance that happened on election night. The letter was sent directly to Chancellor Dan Jones this past Friday.

One hundred and two University of Mississippi faculty members have signed a letter expressing their concerns with how the university handled the disturbance that happened on election night. The letter was sent directly to Chancellor Dan Jones this past Friday.

The letter, which was initially drafted by political science professor Marvin Porter King, shows that the 102 faculty members who signed the letter are disappointed with how the university is moving forward after the protest.

To the University Community:

On the heels of the Election Night “riots,” another racist incident has been reported in the news media. A black freshman’s truck was vandalized the day before, with racial slurs keyed into his truck and the tires slashed. In light of these terrible events, I applaud the students, staff, faculty, and alumni who have joined together in the past week to emphasize that this is not acceptable at the University of Mississippi. Unfortunately, much more is needed.

This year was meant to be a symbol of the progress that The University of Mississippi has made. Every member of the student body knew we were celebrating 50 years of integration and that the university has a history of prejudice and hate, which the Ole Miss community wanted to prove we had overcome. Because of the actions of a select few, it appears to the nation we haven’t.

To the Editors of The Daily Mississippian,

The events on campus during election night were morally reprehensible at a time that should have been, of all things, about moving forward. This is not in reference to the reelected president’s campaign slogan, or favoring one political ideology over the other. The American ideal has always been to strive towards greater things together, as one nation. We disagree, sometimes severely, but we work to achieve a common ground.

Two arrests were made early Wednesday morning during a disturbance on campus that followed the election results Tuesday night, but no one was injured according to University officials.

Chancellor Dan Jones said the use of the term “riot” was inappropriate in light of the real scale of the event.
 
University Police Chief Calvin Sellars declined to provide details about the disturbance beyond the statements made by university officials.

The Ole Miss College Republicans and the newly reformed Ole Miss College Democrats offer every student on campus the chance to become active early in the political process.

The Ole Miss College Republicans and the newly reformed Ole Miss College Democrats offer every student on campus the chance to become active early in the political process.

Sophomore political science major and College Democrats President Sean Higgins is one of many students taking advantage of the political organizations on campus. Higgins said that he used to be a Republican, and even wrote articles for The Daily Mississippian last year in support of Mitt Romney, but over the summer he had a change of perspective and is now helping bring the College Democrats back to Ole Miss.

John Hawkins, Ole Miss’ first black cheerleader, came under fire when he refused to wave the confederate flag after he made the team in 1982. Clara Bibbs, Hawkins’ friend and also an African-American, auditioned but did not make the team.
