Congressman: Racist trope not ‘focal point’ of video he shared of Ole Miss counterprotesters

Rep. Mike Collins (R-Ga.) on Monday denounced racism and discrimination several days after he shared a video of counterprotesters at the University of Mississippi that included a shot of one participant making apelike gestures and noises in front of a Black woman.

The move came after Collins on Friday shared on X a video of counterprotesters shouting down pro-Palestinian demonstrators on the campus of the University of Mississippi while praising the actions as “Ole Miss taking care of business.”
