The Ku Klux Klan will rally at Ole Miss on Saturday before the school's football game against Louisiana State University. According to the Daily Reveille, an LSU student newspaper, the Mississippi White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan is protesting a decision to eliminate the song "From Dixie with Love" from the school's band lineup.
University of Mississippi chancellor Dan Jones asked the band not to perform the song because fans chanted "the South will rise again" when it was played.
Below, watch a 2006 video of Ole Miss fans chanting the phrase.
