A Greek Life retreat at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) was promptly cancelled this weekend after a banana peel was found hanging in a tree.
“To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred at IMPACT,” Interim Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Alexa Lee Arndt remarked in an email between Greek leaders, according to The Daily Mississippian. “Because of the underlying reality many students of color endure on a daily basis, the conversation manifested into a larger conversation about race relations today at the University of Mississippi.”
Apparently, student Ryan Swanson admitted to discarding the banana peel in a tree after he was unable to locate a garbage can, and it was later spotted by Alpha Kappa Alpha President Makala McNeil, who leads one of the campuses historically black sororities.
The racists are now using bananas to stand against our message. Even going to the unscrupulous lengths of having a banana peel symbolically hung from a tree.
We should be outraged by this unapologetic expression of brazen racism and wanton hate.
There is a point where one just has to grow a thicker skin
What Me Racist ?
It's not what she eats, it's the way she eats it.
But if you saw a gorilla eating it the same way , would you feel the same ?
Just wondering , Dave...;)...

Thank you (((brother))), your commendations be duly appreciated.
Sounds like a good reason to not send your child to these "places of Learning".
Though I respect our variation in perspective, I would much prefer my children be culturally enriched by the virtues of diversity.
For the record conservatives are far more sensitive "special snowflakes" than liberals in general. Witness the constant fear of a "war on Christmas". However, if you'd had people constantly hinting that they'd kill you just because of who you are, then you'd be a little sensitive as well.
