There is a relatively small population of blacks in the undergrad population at Mizzou. The issues of why haven't been addressed in the media, but the fact is that the small cabal of black students is well-organized. Said cabal has somehow blamed the University for the fact that there "aren't enough blacks". Mizzou is a State school, so all you have to do to go there is qualify by GPA, be from MO, and have the coin to pay your tuition and fees. In 1961, I got in with a 2.74 GPA! I guess that whatever standard the State has set is too high, and the inner-city kids can't qualify because their schools were dumbed down two generations ago. AFAIK, this is the lowest GPA qualification of any state school:
Can someone please explain to me just how it is this University's fault if black students can't meet this minimum requirement? This, my friends, is simply more Black Marxism at work, and these revolutionaries won't be satisfied until a quota of admissions is imposed on the school, or at least until the school is forced to spend huge dollars to "recruit" black students.
As for the beer-hall putsch put on by 32 members of the football team AND their Coach, Mizzou finds itself with a 1-5 conference record in the SEC East division this year, next to last, won't be bowl-eligible. I suspect that their poor performance on the field will now be "excused" by the liberal sportz press. #BobCostas, where are you? This story is tailor-made for your brand of sports "journalism".
So, the President of the University just resigned, after some commie lapdog of a State legislator got upset, and when Governor Nixon (D), ever the apologist for all things race-baited, echoed that sentiment.
I lay all of this at the feet of the biggest lapdog of all, President Obama, whose Presidential policies seem very well organized just to foment racial discord.
