OXFORD, MS- (WMC-TV) – Reports are coming in that riots are brewing on the Ole Miss campus in Oxford, Mississippi.

Phone calls are coming into our newsroom and photos are being posted to Twitter of the situation on campus.

The Ole Miss campus television station is reporting the alleged "riots" are instead protests.

Photos show huge group of people on the campus, some even lighting Obama-Biden signs on fire in response to the presidential election results.

Ole Miss journalism student Margaret Ann Morgan posted to Twitter, "Onlookers say people- black, white, etc- throwing rocks at cars."

She continued, "Students of all races yelling on rebel drive. Lots of racial slurs."

Morgan also mentioned she is ashamed at what she saw and heard on her campus following the election.

Nicholas Carr claims no rocks were thrown and the majority of the people at the protests were there to see what was going on.

"I was there the whole time. No rocks were thrown. There was 1 sign lit on fire. For about 45 seconds," Carr said. "Mostly, it was 100s of college kids who heard the word riot and ran to take pictures and see what it was about. Again, no rocks or missiles thrown."

Action News 5 has a crew on the way to Oxford. Keep checking with WMCTV.COM for updates.

    Indeed. If my alma mater or any HBCU did that they'd call in the Censored National Guard.

    WOOOOWWW! And this is why I said I do not understand why black people live in Mississippi. Burning sh*t? Really. 

    White people over here talking about moving to Greece and moving to Canada. And how the world is falling apart. Wacko And how we just be thankful we only have to be with him for 4 years thanks to George Washington smdh. Republicans can stay mad. I don't even know why they are mad. They will be just fine.

    For the record, this is not normal. They usually don't show out in large numbers publicly.
     
    I wish the ones saying that would leave. Sleepy
