The freshman class at the University of Missouri is the most racist, sexist, and homophobic student body in America. After all, it was just last year that Mizzou was lauded by the liberal media all across the land for its tolerance and inclusion after they rallied around Michael Sam, the star football player who had recently announced his homosexuality to the world, when he was being picketed by the hate-mongers from Westboro Baptist Church. Since the faculty is essentially unchanged from last year, the only conclusion we can draw from the recent resignation of university president Tim Wolfe is that he recruited a bunch of racist students over the last year and now must be punished for his sins. After all, how else does one explain Mizzou going from the gold standard of tolerance and diversity to a hotbed of racism, sexism and homophobia in just a single year?
The impetus for the unfolding scandal was the declared hunger strike of one Jonathan Butler, a black student, which would not end until “either Tim Wolfe is removed from office or my internal organs fail and my life is lost”. Butler claimed that the university had consistently failed to address incidents of intolerant behavior.
The primary complaint stems from an incident last month in which a white student jumped on a stage where black students were rehearsing a skit and shouted racial slurs. The evidence for Wolfe’s indifference apparently comes from the fact that Wolfe, riding in his car during the homecoming parade a few days later, did not jump out of the vehicle and prostrate himself before a mob of angry protestors.
