Racial tensions escalate at the US University of Missouri as dozens of African-American football players threaten to leave team activities until the school’s president is removed.
There have been several incidents of racial harassment in recent weeks on the college campus, with the black students complaining of racial slurs and other slights. These students accuse the university’s president of failing to do enough to combat the trend. One of the students has been on a hunger strike to call attention to the problem. This, as a group of students has been conducting a sit-in since last Monday. The university’s president has promised to draw up a plan by April to promote diversity and tolerance. The campus is near the city of Ferguson where tensions erupted last year over the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by a white police officer.
