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.
Oh god , that makes me wonder when you juxtapose
those two things together...if they eat at a Chinese
buffet , just before they vote , do they want to vote
again a half hour later ?
( political MSG )
( hides so no one hits him )...;)
Sounds like something from the Onion.
Ahum...cough, cough, cough.....*clears throat rather noisily*
Wait, is this a serious topic? Because the premise sounds like total bullshit - first off, bananas do grow on trees (well, some species do at least); second, how is a peel of any fruit, that's hanging from a tree, a racist statement? If you eat a fruit, you tear it off the tree and eat it, not peel and eat it while it's still hanging, leaving the peel there once you're done. Thirdly, why does a center of cultural learning get shut down after some asshole's littering and another asshole's victim complex?
Yes, yes, Mississippi might be one of those states where black people can't integrate fully, but a banana peel in a tree? That's just stupid.
Good Goddess! It's snowing at Old Miss,,, Oh never-mind... I was confused by the collection of fucking snowflakes.
