Missouri football players boycott in protests of president
University of Missouri football players said they will boycott team activities until the school’s president resigns or is fired in the latest protest against Tim Wolfe’s handling of race issues.
The football players’ move — announced on social media late Saturday — comes after graduate student Jonathan Butler went on hunger strike earlier this week to call attention to the issue.
The Legion of Black Collegians said in a statement that athletes of color on the Mizzou football team won’t participate in any “football-related” activities” until Wolfe “resigns or is removed due to his negligence toward marginalized students’ experiences.”
“We are no longer taking it. It’s time to fight,” the legion posted on Twitter with a photo of at least 32 black young men, arms linked. SOURCE
I am NOT a Mizzou fan and never have been, but if this BS is for real, if these Black ass clowns really DO boycott their team, then the season is over for Missouri.
I don’t have a *dog in this fight* one way or another, unless Missouri bows to pressure and does fire the president, Tim Wolfe, and acquiesces to the demands of a bunch of social rejects; ungrateful cretins that are going to school on a sports scholarship and are being educated at NO cost to them or their families, simply because they have athletic ability.
That would seriously engage MY interest.
Somehow I am having a real problem making myself believe that a school like Mizzou would have anyone on staff that is openly racist or insensitive to the cries of the masses in this time of #BlackLivesMatter and other such nonsense. Most schools, cities, counties, states, businesses and so forth have bowed to that which is destroying our nation; Political Correctness, and will bend over backwards to appease these people in hopes of not being on the receiving end of a lawsuit, The Race Card has been thrown.
Look for some type of massive policy change, look for Wolfe to be out on street and then look for these Black players to come up with even MORE demands once they figure out that the school will cave-in to them and the noise they make.
Lets face it; in college, football is king, and you can’t play the game without these few pawns and court jesters.
Maybe Jimmy *The Greek* Snyder was right when he said that blacks were “bred” to be better athletes than whites. They sure do dominate sports now, ALL sports.
