The right wing must be really proud because protests over President Obama’s reelection erupted at another institution of higher learning — Hampden-Sydney College. According to the Huffington Post, about 40 students shouted racial slurs, threw bottles and set off fireworks outside the Minority Student Union hours after President Obama won the presidential election.
Hampden-Sydney College President Chris Howard said in an email to parents Thursday that the disturbance early Wednesday also included threats of physical violence.
Howard is the college’s first African-American president. He said in the email that he was disappointed in the “harmful, senseless episode” and that bigotry has no place on the campus of 1,080. About 9 percent are black. Source
Well, the same thing erupted at the University of Mississippi, that has had an ugly past of overt racism, that led to the National Guard coming out to ensure the safety of its first black student James Meredith.
