    Good. White people run America and they still find time to harass black people trying to better their lives.

    Couldn't kill us off with slavery and crack so give up.

    Just reading about a swastika drawn with human poop is weird. Also weird that they used a swastika symbol since you usually associate it with anti-semitism.

    I dunno why that graduate student is punishing himself by going on a hunger strike though.

    American neo-Nazis are known to attack, torment, and harass Jews, African Americans, Slavic Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Romani Americans, Pacific Islands Americans, homosexuals, "race traitors" and people with different political or religious opinions.

    Racists evenly distribute their hate.

    Let me see these dudes do this if it were a playoff game. Can't compare them to the Clippers man. Not even fair.

    But

    But good for them either way

    Such a good feeling to see folks still stand up and do something to bring about change. More power to them.

    Nothing but respect to these athletes. I have been following this story and MU sounds like a lot of college campuses as far as race relations goes.

    Great to see this. I'm not surprised by the racism there because as of 2008, there's a major kkk headquarters on the outskirts of St. Louis.

    👏👏👏👏👏

    Applause is due. Wish more athletes had nuts to stand up because this isn't the only university where this kind of stuff is rampant.

    I graduated from a PWI in the south. SEC too so i def have an idea of the experience.

    Its good to see the athletes and students making a stand. i am a lil torn about the call to remove the president of the university tho. Seems a little off target.

    they def should be demanding accountability and policy changes but removing the President just seems to be an overstep from reading about what all has happened.

    like they are asking him to provide a verbal commitment to demands in demand 1 and then asking for the guy to be removed in demand 2???

    I wont be overcritical of their demands cuz its not really about that at this point in the game but salute to them anyway for putting in the work to get light shed on their grievances.
