Whackademia Quote: Three Red Necks Kicked Out of the University of Mississippi

     A University of Mississippi fraternity chapter was suspended on February 21, 2014 and three freshman members kicked out because of their suspected involvement in hanging a noose on the statue of James Meredith, the first black student to enroll in the all-white college. Sigma Phi Epsilon said it indefinitely suspended the Alpha Chapter, which voted to expel all three men and give their names to investigators.

     Cops on Sunday, February 26, 2014, found a noose tied around the Meredith statue's neck, along with an old Georgia flag bearing a since-eliminated Confederate battle emblem. When Meredith tried to enter Ole Miss in the fall of 1962, Mississippi's governor tried to stop him. That led to violence on the Oxford campus….
