Further disciplinary action for Ole Miss KAs

In March three students of the University of Mississippi posted a photo of themselves smiling with guns in front of a bullet riddled memorial for the late Emmett Till, a victim of lynching and a catalyst to the civil rights movement. The three men were members of the Kappa Alpha fraternity on campus and have since been suspended from the organization. 

No formal statement from the University had been issued at the time of the incident and this would not come until months later when the press got wind of the situation. Interim Chancellor Larry D. Sparks, the Interfraternity Council President, and the University as a whole has neglected to take further action against these men. The University has the opportunity to lead the way for other southern schools, organizations, and it’s citizens in general to right it’s wrongs and it has failed to do so. These men, and the University need to be held accountable for their actions (or lack thereof).
