Missouri Football Players Protest Until University President Resigns

A group of players on the University of Missouri football team are taking a stand against the school’s president Time Wolfe.

Members of the university’s Legion of Black Collegians announced through Twitter on Saturday that they would be on strike from all football activities until Wolfe either resigns or is removed from his position.

“We are no longer taking it,” the group wrote. “It’s time to fight. #ConcernedStudent1950 #MizzouHungerStrike.”

Attached to the tweet was a photo of the group of 32 black men and a short post outlining their stance against Wolfe.

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