I am currently watching College Football at home while my husband and son enjoy the Hawks game tonight. I received an email during the Ohio State vs. Minnesota Halftime report informing us here at Fans Favorite Fan that there was a #ConcernedStudent1950 #MizzouHungerStrike Boycott happening at University of Missouri. In the email it states that the Athletes of Color on the football team have decided to join the movement and they’re serious about it. Here’s their message they posted on twitter:
“The Athletes of Color on the University of Missouri football team truly believe “Injustice Anywhere is a threat to Justice Everywhere”. 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!!!!!!”
This is a powerful message and stand that these athletes are taking along with other African-American students on campus. Visit A Historic Fall at MU to see the timeline of events that have led up to now.
