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?

There was a time this season in which teams looked forward to having their defenses go up against LSU junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger. That time, it’s safe to say, has come and gone.

For me, Election Day was unbelievably conflicting. I was proud of my country for choosing to move forward with President Obama – the democratic election process was successful once again. Sadly, my joy soon turned to disappointment when I heard how a small group of our students reacted to the president’s re-election. Ole Miss made national headlines for the protests following the president’s victory, and, as a result, we may have lost any credibility we gained as a progressive institution.

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.
