My Turn: Meredith Statue

Posted: Updated:

Ole Miss is in the national news again, and not for landing a football recruit or academic recognition.

No, once again a few morons thought defacing the James Meredith statue would send a message. It certainly sent a message, a bad one.

Being a native Mississippian, I have had to defend the actions of a few simpletons who seemingly can't stand the fact that the vast majority of our great state has moved from prejudice to racial reconciliation.

Dr. Dan Jones, Chancellor of Ole Miss, is one of the finest men I have ever known and it must be heartbreaking to him when the actions of a few misguided students reflect poorly on the university.

We have the ACT and SAT tests to determine academics; it's ashamed that there isn't an entrance exam to identify prejudice.
