NPR reports on investigation launched by Ole Miss into hostile protest containing racist taunt

The University of Mississippi is investigating hostile and racist actions at a recent protest on campus, including demeaning behavior towards a Black woman by a group of white male counterprotesters. University Chancellor Glenn Boyce condemned these actions as offensive and hurtful, launching an investigation into one student’s conduct. The fraternity Phi Delta Theta expelled a member responsible for the racist actions. This incident reflects a history of racism at the university, prompting ongoing efforts to address segregation and remove Confederate symbols. Boyce emphasized the importance of acknowledging the school’s challenging past and ensuring that such unacceptable behavior does not define the institution.
