African-American Missouri Football Players Announce They Will Not Play Again Until University

Several members of the University of Missouri football team sent out a message tonight that they would not take part in any football-related activities until President Tim Wolfe resigns or is removed from office.

The message, which includes a picture of at least 30 players, reads as follows:

This is all related to a series of racist incidents on the Missouri campus, and the belief by some students who are protesting and demanding Wolfe’s removal, that the response by the University President has been inadequate.

One graduate student, Jonathan Butler, announced that he was going on a hunger strike until the President was removed. Now, the football team is throwing their voice and power behind that protest.
