HATE CRIME? 'Racist' Banana Peel Causes Mass Hysteria at Ole Miss. A Banana Peel!
Some heated crap went down at Ole Miss this week. Apparently they had a banana peel incident. A racist food crime, if you will. It's a common problem among colleges (see Oberlin College Students Protest: 'The Cafeteria food is racist!'). A few frat folks were trying to have a peaceful retreat in the woods, but all that came screeching to a horrifying halt.
Enter one bigoted banana:
This weekend ... [an Ole Miss Greek Life] retreat was cut short Saturday night, after three black students found a banana peel in a tree in front of one of the camp's cabins.
The students shared what they found with Council leaders, sparking a day's worth of camp-wide conversation. [The] interim director of Fraternity and Sorority Life ... sent a letter to all campus chapter presidents confirming the incident. "To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred ... Because of the underlying reality many students of color endure on a daily basis, the conversation manifested into a larger conversation about race relations today at the University of Mississippi."
Reminder, we're still talking about a BANANA PEEL.
[The following] morning, all of the retreat's participants ate breakfast together, followed by a session where they shared their feelings on race relations at Ole Miss. The breakfast options included a fruit cart with bananas.
[One student recalled the encounter, saying] she was walking with friends across camp when one of her sorority sisters pointed at a tree 15 feet away. She said that about six feet up the tree's trunk sat a lone, fresh-looking banana peel. "It was so strange and surreal to see it there," McNeil said. She said the image was disturbing. "That, to me, was a slap in the face to see that banana hanging in a tree ..."
What hateful master of evil could be responsible for such a crime, you ask? Behold, the wicked purveyor of racism steps forth.
In the midst of the open and heated discussion, senior accounting major Ryan Swanson said he put the banana peel in the tree when he could not find a trashcan nearby.
Yeah, so turns out it was all just an accident. Surprise! But discovering the true cause of the incident still didn't stop students from reacting with the fervent feeling of injustice. In fact, shortly after, many students left the camp because they didn't feel "safe" or "welcome." Too many bananas looming around.
Who knew an ill-placed, harmless banana peel could cause so many college students to scatter. Impressive. One might even consider plopping banana peels around one's property to deter any college SJWs within a 20 mile radius.
By the way, major props to this fruity dude for having the balls to claim responsibility for littering. I imagine it wasn't easy in a room full of raging frat boys and daddy issue sorority girls. But also negative points to him because it didn't take long for him to break down and apologize to his fellow students.
There was no need for an apology because there's nothing racist about tossing a banana peel in the woods. It was all simply an opportunity to make a baseless accusation, courtesy of insecure, race-baiting, human tampons. A common theme among leftist youngins (see BUSTED: College 'Diversity Council' Caught Posting Fake Racist Flyers and NOT SATIRE: College Writing Center Says Grammar is... Racist!).
This is why we hate college.
