Ole Miss Crowns Its First Black Homecoming Queen

Comments: 17  | Leave A Comment

50 years after its controversial admission of James Meridith, the first African-American to attend the university, Ole Miss has crowned its first black homecoming queen.

She was crowned during the halftime ceremonies of the Ole Miss-Auburn football game and she was escorted by her father Commander Kerri Pearson. (Photo above)

Pearson won by less than 100 votes, coming in at 1,477 to 1,387 over a white student.

Congratulations Courtney Pearson!

  1. Ignorance abounds here. You may not want to hear the truth but this is a hoax admitted to this hoax. But please, remain naive.

  2. No, the young woman may not be the Caucasian definition of what constitutes an African American beauty- light skinned, European features, but for some reason she was voted in to the position. Even if it was intended as a joke, I hope this young lady uses it to her advantage, goes on to achieve and rams it straight down those pranksters throats.

  3. PLEASE DON’T DO THIS!!! THIS WAS A PLANNED MALICIOUS ATTACK ON BLACKS BY OLE MISS STUDENTS & ALUM WHO ARE STILL UPSET ABOUT OLE MISS BEING PRESSURED INTO CHANGING FROM THEIR LONGSTANDING REBEL MASCOT TO THE BLACK BEAR ACCORDING TO INSIDERS AT THE SCHOOL.

    IT’S MEANT TO BE AN INSIDE JOKE AND FOREVER A SYMBOLIC GESTURE AND PROTEST AGAINST THE SCHOOLS DECISION.

    SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE “THE BLACK BEAR.”

    I TRIED TO CONTACT YOU GUYS BEFORE YOU INEVITABLY POSTED THIS.
