YOU CAN'T LET HIM ON OUR CAMPUS!
The Riots of Ole Miss were fought between US forces, and segregationists.
Rocks were thrown at the new man on campus!
The Riots of Ole Miss were fought because the school had recently accepted an African American man named James Meridth's request to join their school.
Mr Meridith was accompanied by armed police/military due to the threats placed on him.
