Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Missouri's Black football team proves the system of white supremacy buckles under #EconomicRetaliation

Taking nothing away from the hunger strike of MU graduate student Jonathan Butler, it was not until the Black football team, the Missouri Tigers went on strike, that the University of Missouri caved in.

The system of white supremacy doesn't recognize sacrifice when that sacrifice impact and possibly harms the victim, it only recognizes sacrifice when it impacts their bottom line, the almighty dollar aka profit aka capitalism.

The white media would like to deceive the Black man and woman by framing the victory over MU by giving the credit to graduate student Jonathan Butler's hunger strike, that definitely deserves praise because it was that act that was catalyst that caused the Missouri Tigers to boycott. However, MU didn't acknowledge the hunger strike until the Missouri Tigers went on a boycott of all football activities. That bold act would impact the finances of Missouri University, the teachers, the faculty, and the surrounding community.  That bold act would impact the white man's pockets.

Warming: the black community, the parents, and faculty of Missouri University must rally behind the football team and Joseph Butler for their revolutionary stance against racism and white supremacy.
 
No doubt the system of white supremacy will try to r
etaliate against these black men in one form or another; by trumping up charges, by tampering with their grades, by expelling them from school, any wicked thing that they can think of they will try to use against those men including negative propaganda from the racist white media.

Hats off to the revolutionary act of the Missouri Tigers in seeking justice or else!

Black football players at Missouri: We'll sit out until system president resigns
Black football players at the University of Missouri have joined calls demanding the ouster of the president of the state's four-campus university system over alleged inaction against racism on campus.
About 30 players made their thoughts known Saturday night in a tweet posted by Missouri's Legion of Black Collegians.
"The athletes of color on the University of Missouri football team truly believe "Injustice Anywhere is a threat to Justice Everywhere," read the tweet. "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' experience."

Missouri's football team will resume practice as scheduled on Tuesday, the school's athletic department announced following the resignation of University of Missouri system president Tim Wolfe.
The Tigers will play BYU on Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. That game had been in limbo as players went on strike in support of graduate student Jonathan Butler.
Pressure had been mounting for Wolfe to step down over concerns about his handling of recent racial issues directed at black students on the Columbia campus. Butler had vowed not to eat until Wolfe stepped down.
MU football coach Gary Pinkel and athletic director Mack Rhoades issued this statement Monday following Wolfe's resignation: "The primary concern of our student-athletes, coaches and staff has been centered on the health of Jonathan Butler and working with campus leaders to find a resolution that would save a life. We are hopeful we can begin a process of healing and understanding on our campus."

University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe resigned on Monday amid accusations that he mishandled racial tensions at the flagship Columbia campus.
Calls for his ouster piled up this weekend after dozens of members of the football team threatened to boycott games and practices over accusations he didn’t respond quickly to black student protesters who complained about racist slurs and harassment on campus this fall.
“Please use this resignation to heal and not to hate,” he said in a news conference Monday.
More than 30 black football players at the school, known as Mizzou, announced on social media Saturday night that they would boycott games and practices unless Mr. Wolfe resigned or was fired, “due to his negligence toward marginalized students’ experience.” On Sunday, the athletic department, which consists of university employees, issued a statement saying it supports the players’ actions.
