    Missouri’s Black Players Announce Boycott Of Football Until University President Is Removed

    Missouri’s Black Players Announce Boycott Of Football Until University President Is Removed
    Matt Hladik

    In the wake of mounting racial tension, which culminated in a swastika scrawled in human feces appearing on a dorm room wall last month, a University of Missouri graduate student named Jonathan Butler is waging a hunger strike in protest. Butler plans on continuing his strike until the university’s president, Tim Wolfe, steps down or is removed from his post.

    Wolfe has been accused by Butler and others of negligence in addressing the rising tension and racial problems on campus.

    Tonight, black players on the Missouri football team joined Butler’s fight. The group posted a message on Twitter declaring that they would be boycotting all football activities until Wolfe is gone.

    Is it racism when anyone disagrees with something a person of color does, or is racism just when I do it?

    I don't see how saying he thinks if they were serious they should boycott all things University related is racist imo

    If they go through with this, don't the white players need to boycott with them? Seems like a bad look if they don't, whether they want to or not.

    I mean can they do that when they are on scholarship? I would think that part of that deal includes showing up to practice, etc.

    I went to a kstate/mizzou football game back when they still were in the big 12. the stadium is a massive dump, they wave the wheat just like ku does but get really pissed when you say that are doing the same thing ku does, there is absolutely no place to tailgate except outside of parking garages by the stadium which looks exactly like ku's, and the entire stadium is super dark at night. also ron prince was our coach at the time so of course we lost.

    what does pinkel do? If he supports them, it looks bad on the president, which would show the coach has more power than him (another bad look)

    but if he doesnt support them, he looks bad

    tough spot to be in imo

    So what do they want the president to do again that he isn't doing? Bring more "awareness"?

    You can't just fire the school president, right? Seems like there's a process involved that takes more than a couple phone calls.

    Yeah. A president doesn't just get fired because some athletes want to be mad at him.
