A Greek life retreat scheduled to take place at the University of Mississippi was cut short last weekend after a banana peel was found hanging in a tree on campus.

Student Ryan Swanson admitted to tossing his banana peel into a nearby tree after he was unable to locate a garbage can. Shortly after he disposed of the peel, it was spotted by Alpha Kappa Alpha President Makala McNeil, a leader of one of the school’s historically black sororities.

Despite Swanson’s explanation, a report from the student newspaper claims that students left the retreat in tears after finding out that McNeil has discovered the peel. McNeil claims the students “didn’t feel welcome” or “safe” on campus.

“To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred at IMPACT,” Interim Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Alexa Lee Arndt said in a statement that was published by Ole Miss’ student newspaper The Daily Mississippian. “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.”

“The overall tone was heavy. I mean, we were talking about race in Mississippi and in the Greek community so there’s a lot involved,” McNeil recalled, later adding that she and her friend were “all just sort of paranoid for a second” after spotting the banana.

This is probably one of the funniest stories of the morning. 

 

Just look at that banana sitting there on a tree.. so menacing. You can just literally feel the racism oozing from it. :rofl:

I don't think so based on the campus newspaper.  Reading this account it is amazing the amount of discussion they needed to have over a piece of litter.  Who knew litter could be so racist.

According to the article, it was likely some passerby that saw this as an opportunity to play up being a victim. While that possibly suggests a black person, I've noticed an overabundance of white leftists pulling these sort of shenanigans far more often (which includes manufacturing perceived hate crimes/graffiti/nooses/etc) so is actually more likely.

You mean someone from the MDL could be responsible?  Who would have thought.

What would these guys do if the found a banana skin in a trash can? 

 

 

"After the large discussion session, the students split into smaller conversation groups. McNeil said that around noon on Saturday, she was walking with friends to their group session 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. “We were all just sort of paranoid for a second.”"
