    What is the objection here? Those students have just as much right to protest as anyone else about anything they want.

    Nothing implied or speculative about emphasizing it happened in Mississippi.

    Since it DID indeed happen in Mississippi - there is nothing else but pure fact about that reality.

    And did you know where the largest KKK Klavern that ever existed was located?

    In Indiana, in the North. That's also reality.

    Yes. I have heard that. Racism can exist anywhere it would seem.

    they ran the state in the early to mid 1920s. the D.C. Stephenson scandal brought them down, including the governor and mayor of Indianapolis. that was the low point of Indiana history. the klan was effectively neutered at the state level, but it hung around under the radar until the late 1980s / early 1990s. there might still be some small pockets, but they are so marginalized that people don't even speak of them privately. the climate has really changed for the better just in my lifetime.

    not all Indiana history is racist, though. i've visited some houses that were part of the underground railroad, and there were many people with their hearts in the right place. it should also be noted that many citizens fought the klan tooth and nail, and continue to spray the pesticide that keeps those bigoted cockroaches hiding under rocks to this day.

    How is this surprising? Mississippi is just like this in some areas.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
