Submission + - Racism Rampant in Mississippi (

samazon writes: Last night on the campus of the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) students watching the election began shouting racial epithets and offensive political chants. As a resident of the red state with a variety of acquaintances on both sides of the fence, I saw some pretty offensive things on Facebook, but you would think that the younger and arguably better-informed students of Ole Miss would at least realize that shouting racial slurs across campus might come back to bite them in a job interview (or class the next morning).
