Double Standards for Black and White Students Must End

Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 8.52.55 PMAs the GOP debates went on a few nights past, there was another racist crime being committed at the University of Missouri. I watched my Twitter feed as students began to panic because some sick, racist psycho decided to threaten every Black student with death.

On a social media app, YikYak, an anonymous person(s) posted death threats. Kill any Black student on sight, is basically what this person said he would do. Where is the media? Where is security? While more Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 11.20.30 PMhate filled monsters chanted hate -pointlessly- into the night, students tweeted the location of these dangerous sites to others, asked for the cruelty to stop and were given the worst advice ever from the University of Missouri’s “security”. Their main security posted this, pretty much leaving students in a state of confusion without the security and safety they deserve.

Mizzou football team has joined the fight to address racism on campus.

The University of Missouri’s football team has joined students in their protest against University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe by boycotting all football games until he either resigns or is removed from office.

It began with Black graduate student Jonathan L. Butler, 25, who has gone on a hunger strike in his response in Wolfe’s reticence in addressing racial tension that escalated when a swastika scrawled in excrement was found on a dorm wall.

Butler said he is willing to die unless Wolfe leaves office, prompting the school’s chancellor R. Bowen Loftin to issue a statement voicing his concern for his health. With the Black football players adding their weight to the issue, the nation is finally paying attention.
