    Anyone interested in hypocrisy only need google 'race riots in Europe'.
    Good for you. I never said that there weren't nice people in Mississippi. Please learn some reading comprehension and context. I never stated that racism does not exist outside the south. Please learn some reading comprehension and context. I never stated the US has a lock on racism. Please learn some reading comprehension and context.

I don't know what you expected fellow students to do? Fight the protesters? They called the cops and dispersed them? Racism is dying. It is not nearly as bad as you think it is. Of course there are still racists, and for years there will be some. But if you really think that white people just huddle around the baby when it's born and say "How can we make him hate others who aren't like him?" I mean is that what you think? Dude people in Mississippi are awesome and very open minded. People at Ole Miss are some of the best in the nation. South Korean's Pakistani's etc etc. Really neat campus, really loving people. I'm sorry you can't grasp this.
    I didn't suggest that people were just standing around you did. My point is that racism is a lot worse than most conservatives portray it to be and it is institutional in the United States. My further point was that the reason this is significant and the reason this is news worthy is the history of violent racism on the campus of Ole Miss. You tell me how awesome the people at Ole Miss are. I am saying that doesn't matter. The place has a well known history of violent racism. The first black President is re-elected and they have violent protest, regardless of how small, that is racially based and you say how horrible it is that the press and other people think this is news worthy?? What planet are you from. Of course it is news worthy.

    You ask me what the other people on campus were supposed to do? I can tell you in the late '80's when neo-Nazism was on the rise in the US the Aryan Nation decided it would be cool to hold its national convention at ground 0 of American liberalism in the San Francisco Bay area. They were to have a 3 day weekend full of whatever it is neo-Nazis due. I was stationed in the Bay area at the time. Friday night about 3 times as many people showed up at the park to protest the neo-Nazis then showed up for the convention. They even hired a airplane with banner that stated "Hitler was a wienie." By Saturday midday the ratio between protestors to attendees grew to about 10-1.
    By Saturday evening the rest of the festivities for Sunday and Monday were cancelled and the neo-Nazis left. That is what could have happened at Ole Miss but did not.

    Then why all the defense? You could just let it go, but no...

    Haters gonna hate. The only problem is, one of them spouts a racial slur, and suddenly that one person is the living embodiment of all that is sacred on the right. That is the most important story here, the use of a racial epithet. Right? I mean, that must prove that only racists are unhappy with Obama.

    Right?
    Rev. Jesse Jackson... didn't he want to cut Obama's "nuts out"... because Obama said something that verged on personal responsibility on the part of black fathers?

    Must be a racist to want to castrate someone. Think if a person with inverted skin color said that? WHOA!

    A feigned discussion of prejudice with irony.
    The irony is that Mississippi has a university.

    Defense?

    Pointing out an idiotic remark is not being defensive. Quite the contrary.

    Was that post intended for me? You seem to be reacting to things I never said.

    Or is it a matter of reading comprehension?
