Bedwetter alert at Ole Miss.

You are not reading The Onion.  This post is not a piece of satire or parody.  This article really did appear in the Daily Mississippian:


This weekend, leaders from Ole Miss Greek life convened upon Camp Hopewell in Lafayette County for a three-day retreat designed to build leaders and bring campus closer together. The retreat was cut short Saturday night, however, after three black students found a banana peel in a tree in front of one of the camp’s cabins.

The students shared what they found with National Pan-Hellenic Council leaders, sparking a day’s worth of camp-wide conversation surrounding symbolism, intended or not. In the midst of the open and sometimes heated discussion, senior accounting major Ryan Swanson said he put the banana peel in the tree when he could not find a trashcan nearby.

Alexa Lee Arndt, interim director of Fraternity and Sorority Life, said she was one of the only university staff members acting in an administrative capacity at the weekend retreat. Monday afternoon, she sent a letter to all campus chapter presidents, council officers and chapter advisers, confirming the incident and outlining the university’s plans.

“To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred at IMPACT … 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,” Arndt wrote in the letter acquired by The DM....

Makala McNeil, president of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, one of the nine historically African-American sororities and fraternities, said she saw the banana peel after leaving a group discussion that addressed race relations. Saturday morning, all of the retreat’s participants ate breakfast together, followed by a session where they shared their feelings on race relations at Ole Miss. The breakfast options included a fruit cart with bananas.

“The overall tone was heavy,” McNeil, a senior integrated marketing communications and sociology major, said. “I mean, we were talking about race in Mississippi, at the University of Mississippi and in the Greek community, so there’s a lot involved.”

After the large discussion session, the students split into smaller conversation groups. McNeil said that around noon on Saturday, she was walking with friends to their group session across camp when one of her sorority sisters pointed at a tree 15 feet away. She said that about six feet up the tree’s trunk sat a lone, fresh-looking banana peel.

“It was so strange and surreal to see it there,” McNeil said. “We were all just sort of paranoid for a second.”

She said the image was especially disturbing in light of an incident on American University’s campus in May of this year. The morning Taylor Dumpson was to take over as the school’s first female black student government president, students found bananas hanging from nooses across campus. Some of the bananas were inscribed with references to Dumpson’s sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha.

“That, to me, was a slap in the face to see that banana hanging in a tree after talking about the personal truths of our campus,” McNeil said.

McNeil said that by lunchtime, people throughout the camp knew about the incident. As lunch rolled into the afternoon discussion group, the banana peel dominated chatter. That afternoon’s group discussion session served as an open forum on the incident.

“As the staff member responsible for the wellbeing of our community, I felt it was imperative to provide space immediately to students affected by this incident to allow them an opportunity to voice their pain and concern,” Arndt wrote in her statement.

The conversation carried on, and tensions continued to rise. White and black members of the Ole Miss Greek community shared their views on the day’s events and race relations in general. McNeil said people had a lot to say, but the conversation began to move in an unhealthy direction.

“There were a lot of emotions being showed and a lot of transparency,” McNeil said. “I just don’t feel as though it was being facilitated in a constructive way.”

The massive discussion session wrapped up as more and more students stood and left the room – some in tears, some in frustration. NPHC members began texting friends to come and pick them up from the camp since no one had been allowed to drive his or her car up to the retreat. The remainder of the retreat was canceled later that night.

“At that point, we didn’t feel welcome; we didn’t feel safe,” McNeil said. “If we didn’t feel wanted or safe at the camp, our best option was to leave.”

Katrina Caldwell, vice chancellor for diversity and community engagement, said her office was asked to put a plan together to handle the weekend’s incident on campus..... Rest of article.
He needs a nickname.

 Kingfish note: Is JJ making fun of these students? Absolutely.  These bedwetters probably see a Klan rally every time they walk down the bedding aisle at Walmart or think Eight-ball was created by the Confederacy.  They deserve nothing but ridicule.  It's almost a shame they will never get drafted into a real war so they can find out what hardship really is. Hope they never watch this video.

Ole Miss is GONE. KAPUT. It started with that Khayat creature, and the actual death of the institution some of you loved, happened shortly after the installation of the football team's tacky new mascot.

The University of Mississippi is nothing more, now, than just another soulless educational UTILITY. It's ANOTHER MIZZOU.

Somewhere in the real world the scenario played out like this:

Makala: "Why is there a banana peel in that tree?"

Jason: "I put it there. I couldn't find a garbage can and didn't want anyone to slip and fall on it. They may get hurt."

Makala: "Thank you for watching out for others. There's a garbage can over there."

Jason: "You're welcome. I'll go put the peel in that garbage can."

Talk about the victim mentality, and the entitlement class in our country, ole miss is the perfect place for this to occur. They feel entitled to win by any means necessary in all their sports teams, just look at the mess they've created of the football investigation. They continued to cheat while the NCAA was on campus investigating them for cheating. Now they result to any amount of lying against student athletes to try to prove themselves entitled to win by any means necessary. There is all the evidence in the world against them, but it doesn't matter to them, they just make up false conspiracies and fake twitter posts trying to justify their entitlement to win by cheating. So does it really surprise anyone that their students are screaming bloody murder over a banana peel? They are the epitome of culture rot! It's just, well, BANANAS!!! They've been entrenched to look for signs that can be purposefully construed to themselves as having any meaning they may justify themselves a victim. And Yancy Porter gets his bossman reprimanded by the owner of 247sports for photoshopping and lying about an opposing student athlete, because to their cultish, clannish media belief that cheating is okay. And if caught then they are victims of a widespread collusion attempt between many entities to bring their victim mental souls down for the cheating they beleived in. Ole miss is a conundrum. BANANAS!!!

Nice try, Theca. It was your friends at Mizzou who were screaming for safe spaces and used those words. Closer to home, your friends at MSU issued this demand:

6) Safe space for Black students on campus
• Safe space for Black students on campus that are away from the daily stresses of
navigating white spaces and the work/responsibilities associated with the HCDC office.
This space can either be an expansion of the HCDC office or an entirely different space
created on campus.


Keep trying. Maybe one day you will quit failing.

"The daily stresses navigating white spaces"

I'm tired of the daily stresses of navigating black spaces due to car jackings, armed robberies, aggravated assaults and MURDER AT A REDLIGHT.
When I retreat to my suburban home, it is called white flight and I'm racist for doing so. In fact, my whole community is called racist.

I hereby decree that any black person or black organization who asks for something specifically for the black community is RACIST, BLACK SEPARATIST and SHOULD BE PUBLICLY OUTED AS SUCH.

Btw. My black friend and co-worker ate a banana right here in the office this morning. That overt act was a message directed at me. I need a safe space.

1) Whose parents and grandparents was it that set upon their grandparents with club, fire hoses and dogs? Do these people have any responsibility for the state of race relations in this country.

2)What makes race such an issue is not this generation and not Obama, what makes race an issue is the history of this country. You cannot have oppression and discrimination against a race of people for hundreds of years, then have a civil rights movement in the 60's and now around 60 years later, say people are bedwetters every time raise comes up.

"Because of the underlying reality many students of color endure on a daily basis,"

That is the statement in the story that I guess all of you commenters overlooked. Now I personally think it's a reach but when day in and day out you or someone you know has been affected by racism, it can cause you to be overly sensitive. Here's an example of whites hyper-sensitivity: Affirmative action, according to public reports that 11% has been hurt by it, but the majority of whites say that it is reverse discrimination. Where are the massive layoffs and firings of whites because they have to hire blacks? yeah that's what I thought.
Stop judging others until you walked in their shoes.

9:21 says maybe it was a racist act. Here is my response. My mother had a habit of insulting you with a comment that could be taken two ways. You could be insulted if you wished, but if you called her on it she would say, no meant it the other way. My wife was constantly getting worked up by these insults and knowing that Mom would always deny that an insult was intended. My advice to my wife was - I have lived with this my entire life. If she wants to insult me, I'm going to make her hit me in the mouth. Any implied insults will be ignored. And the same advice applies to snowflakes. Maybe it WAS a racists act. If you cannot be certain just pretend it was not and get on with your life. If someone wants to insult you, make them hit you in the mouth.

@ 12:12 - Not "no" but "HELL NO!" I don't have ANY responsibility for what my ancestors - dead or alive - might have done or not have done! NONE!!! By the same token that I don't get to take credit for whatever good they might of done and whatever successes they might have achieved, neither am I expected to take the blame for their sins and/or their failures.

As for affirmative action, I don't know where that 11% number came from, but I'd be willing to bet that the 11% of white people who were rejected for jobs strictly because of their race is far greater than the % of black people who have, in the past 60 years, been rejected for a job strictly because of THEIR race. Now, I'm talking ACTUAL rejection because of race, not "PERCEIVED" rejection. And HERE is where the rubber meets the road: Just like this banana peel "incident", 99.9% of the "racism" encountered today is PERCEIVED, not ACTUAL. Blacks, just like everybody else, get rejected for jobs, etc. for any number of reasons. But ONLY blacks automatically assume the rejection was because of the color of their skin. They simply can not comprehend that their interviewing skills or their actual work experience or their education or their specific personality quirks were less impressive than the other person's. No....it can only be RACE. Sorry, but there nothing I can do about that, EVEN IF I had any responsibility whatsoever to do so.

11:43, the Banana Pops will probably do the trick, all by themselves. However, it would be nice if there were theme music - maybe the soundtrack from Carmen Miranda's 'BANANAS IS MY BUSINESS'. I just looked it up, and it seems that Carmen and Harry Belafonte teamed-up for a song "Daylight Come & Me Wanna Go Home", which ought to get the crowd in the right mood.

And I don't know how elaborate these 'Tailgating' things get, but if the little televisions in people's vehicles can all be running, over and over, those two seconds in Pam Ann's 'Titanic' spoof, where she's eating the banana, I think it would add to the mood - particularly in light of the Chocolate-covered Banana Pops.

The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
