Good, Then Lose Your Scholarships

From ESPN:
A group of black players on Missouri says it will stop participating in football activities until university system president Tim Wolfe resigns.
The announcement came via Twitter on Saturday night in a post by Missouri's Legion of Black Collegians. It comes after several recent racial incidents on Missouri's campus, and with Wolfe under fire for how he's handled them.
The tweet included a photograph of 32 black men, including starting running back Russell Hansbrough....
Racial tension has been brewing at Missouri's campus in Columbia since September, when Payton Head, the Missouri Students Association president and an African American, said he was racially abused while walking. Students protested when it took nearly a week for the university chancellor to address the incident.
Then in October, a student yelled the N-word at members of the Legion of Black Collegians in a campus plaza while they were rehearsing for a play. And later that month, someone smeared a swastika with their own feces on a bathroom wall in a new residence hall.
Hey, if they want to protest, that's fine.
Then be prepared to lose your scholarships and a free ride through school and possibly a very nice career.
Let's see how committed to their beliefs then.
