A group of black players on the Missouri football team says it will stop participating in football activities until university system president Tim Wolfe resigns.

From Twitter:

"The athletes of color on the University of Missouri football team truly believe 'Injustice Anywhere is a threat to Justice Everywhere,'" the tweet read. "We will no longer participate in any football related activities until President Tim Wolfe resigns or is removed due to his negligence toward marginalized students' experiences. WE ARE UNITED!!!!!"

Several took to social media on Saturday night to address the protest, with one, cornerback John Gibson, saying: "[The decision] has nothing to do with our coaches. Our coaches are 100% behind us. Including the white ones."

Missouri Tigers football players to strike until embattled Tim Wolfe resigns
I'll be interested to see how this goes and who supports the students and if it will lead to actual change.


Mod note--As the other Missouri thread has been plenty active and this one has no activity, I'll go ahead and close this one. One thread per subject, and this subject is being discussed at length on Current Events, Politics/Other controversies, and the Missouri state forums.Thread closed.
