A Black senior at the University of Mississippi says that she was attacked as she returned to a housing complex about a mile from campus that is populated almost entirely by Ole Miss students. The woman says she was doused with an alcoholic beverage by a group of men in a truck yelling racial slurs. One of the occupants of the truck allegedly called her a “Black nigger” during the incident.
The woman reported that the racial climate at the housing complex has been hostile. She said that earlier a young White man walked by her and a group of friends, spit on the ground, and said, “You can’t live here, you’re Black.”
