Black Student Suffers Racist Attacks at University of Mississippi
Things are not alright at the University of Mississippi.
A 19 year-old freshman has been the victim of racist attacks dating back to August of this year.
“Blacks are known to steal,” was scrawled on his vandalized dorm room door. Later, his truck tires were slashed, stereo system stolen, and the letters “KKK” and “Go Home” written on the side of the vehicle.
His family is both shaken and furious, and they want answers.
Demanding answers for the racial attack on her son, Mary contacted Reverend Dwight Montgomery who is with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Operation PUSH and both organizations have put up a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the capture of those responsible for the racial bias toward the student.
Rev. Montgomery told WMC-TV, “We want to know the persons involved in this travesty.”
