OXFORD (WCBI) – New developments in the sit in at the Ole Miss Lyceum.
Leaders of the protest have crafted a list of demands for the Ole Miss administration and have presented them to the school through the UM NAACP chapter. Those demands are as follows:
1. The University acknowledge that Jordan Samson’s comment was a racist threat of domestic terrorism & take immediate disciplinary action.
2. Administration apologizes for its previous statement that failed to explicitly acknowledge and condemn said act of anti-black racism.
3. Chancellor Vitter release a statement reassuring that future threats & acts of racism will be considered intolerable in our community.
4. Chancellor Vitter agree to work directly w/ student orgs & leaders to proactively confront & address a culture of white supremacy at UM.
The University has not given any indication on when it will address the list or the students who still remain camped out in the schools main administration building
