Nice recruiting pitch Ole Miss with the frat boys out of hand lol.
Here are tweets from the university twitter page.
We are defining what happened earlier as protests. "Riots" are violent public disturbances, and that did not occur on the #OleMiss campus.

Onlookers say people- black, white, etc- throwing rocks at cars #OleMiss
#BREAKING We won't use the word "riot," but there was lots of protesting from various groups.
#BREAKING Racial slurs & derogatory language was used by some students during the "riots."
This isn't shocking....most OM students are not from MS so they don't speak for what Mississippi folks think.
they just all watched that damn 30 for 30 too many times...
they'll calm down when they figure it all out

Rich Mississippians love black folks cooking and cleaning..
Why would anyone be shocked by this?
i love it when people just make shlt up.
More than 66 percent of all students are from Mississippi
Hopefully the whole south will do this. I'm ready for a race war
The klan's kids have to go somewhere...
Do note a big chuck of UMMC students are MSU transfers.

My buddy at Ole Miss just texted me "Is it bad that we had race riots here last night?"
"I had to bolt cause if they found out I was from the north, they'd lynch me after they ran out of blacks."
So I guess this answers FLBuckeye's question the other day - apparently there will be riots.
If there was a race war the south is the last place I'd want to be.
This is true.
This whole thing is just crazy. I guess these students at Om don't realize how they are making not only ole miss look bad but also our state. These students views are ridiculous and they do not represent every person in Mississippi.
Ole Miss released a statement from the chancellor:
A Message from Chancellor Dan Jones
November 7, 2012 By Ole Miss News
OXFORD, Miss. – University police were notified by students shortly before midnight Tuesday that Twitter chatter was indicating students were gathering near the student union to protest the results of the election. The officers found 30-40 students gathered in front of the union, and over the next 20 minutes the gathering had grown to more than 400 students, many of whom were chanting political slogans. The crowd was ordered to disperse by university police, and after about 25 minutes students had returned to residence halls. About 100 students gathered again at one hall, and university police dispersed the group and made two arrests for disorderly conduct, including one for public intoxication and one for failure to comply with police orders.
“While we are grateful that there were no injuries and there was no property damage, we are very disappointed in those students who took a very immature and uncivil approach to expressing their views about the election,” said University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones. “The gathering seems to have been fueled by social media, and the conversation should have stayed there.”
“Unfortunately, early news reports quoted social media comments that were inaccurate. Too, some photographs published in social media portrayed events that police did not observe on campus. Nevertheless, the reports of uncivil language and shouted racial epithets appear to be accurate and are universally condemned by the university, student leaders and the vast majority of students who are more representative of our university creed.”
Jones said, “Parents are being notified that it’s a normal day on campus and that one of America’s safest campuses is safe again this morning, though all of us are ashamed of the few students who have negatively affected the reputations of each of us and of our university. We are initiating a thorough review of this incident to determine the facts and any follow-up actions that may be necessary.”
Jones said, “We are reminding our students of relevant statements within the university creed: The University of Mississippi is a community of learning dedicated to nurturing excellence in intellectual inquiry and personal character in an open and diverse environment. As a voluntary member of this community: I believe in respect for the dignity of each person. I believe in fairness and civility. I believe in personal and professional integrity.”
just wait till they find out that he will be president for 4 more years.
Good job Ole Miss, you just gave every other school in the country a great negative-recruiting tool for use on any black athlete.
It's going to get worse before it gets better...OM has always been a swore thumb here.

Remember CaptAU's posts that the south was actually not racist and understood the differences between races better than the north, where everyone is racist?
Dag, that is crazy. This won't get near the press that the new black panther party got.
I burst out laughing every single time I hear that contention.
Bull$%&! like this is why.
Why is this a surprise? They had a confederate soldier as their mascot until 3 or 4 years ago and used to wave confederate flags at their games up until 10 or 12 years ago
Former OM rebel Mckinley Boykin post on FB
Woooooooooooow! I can't believe the they had a f****** rioting and burning Obama posters at Olemiss. Foreal people, I graduated in 2005 and I'm from Alabama. 7 years has passed and I still get asked why I why did I go to to olemiss. Every time I'm almost speechless. Its truly embarrassing for me but the fact of the matter is went because it was a better situation for to play football and go to the professional level. Honestly, I feel olemiss will never grow I don't care how much people try to hide and forget how racist they are. But for all the people who play sports there I'm behind you.
Jesus Ole Miss, take it easy.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
