Thread: Is Ole Miss A Victim Of Political Correctness?: Colonel Reb Title Now Mr. Ole Miss

  1. Default Is Ole Miss A Victim Of Political Correctness?: Colonel Reb Title Now Mr. Ole Miss

    Mr. Ole Miss. This will upset hardcore Ole Miss Rebel and Archie Manning SEC fans. Those people love their southern heritage and are proud of southern traditions, especially when it comes to Ole Miss. Now the University of Mississippi Associated Student Body Senate voted 35 - 0 to change the Colonel Reb title to Mr. Ole Miss. Opponents of the name change say the title could be meant to be deliberately gender confusing? Progressive liberals have been extremely hard on Ole Miss and their traditions in the past decade. They have been successful at targeting the universities heritage at Ole Miss by banning the Confederate Flag, the song Dixie, The South Will Rise Again, the Colonel Reb logo on the football helmets and even the Colonel Reb mascot. But why? Progressives say its for diversity. If that is true, then how can you have "Diversity" without Southern Heritage & Culture?

    This is no different then when Univ of Al banned rebel flags at home games and in dorms over 10 years ago. If you want to be a redneck who revels in a time when blacks were property then join the Kappa Alphas on your university.

    I was a KA at LSU back when I was in college and believe me, none of us were 'red necks' as you are trying to describe. A lot of my frat brothers came to LSU from all over the U.S.

    Did your black members dress up for the Old South formal?

    Why must you assume all rednecks are racist who look fondly upon slavery? Unfair sterotypes are fine as long as poor whites are your target. Correct?

    This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector. – Plato circa 400 B.C.
    When you disarm [the people] you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred against you. - Niccoló Machiavelli, The Prince. 1537.

    Well, that isn't nearly as bad as some of the alternatives they had suggested.

    What dodge? He was saying that the only black people at the formals were serving drinks.
    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
    --C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock, p. 292.
