Threats made toward black students at the University of Missouri

- advertisement -
Students on the University of Missouri campus have accomplished great victories in the past few days, but with their progress comes backlash. Violent threats are being made to black students via Yik Yak and reports of groups intimidating students on campus are flooding Twitter. This all comes after a threat was called in to the campus Black Culture Center during a Black Caucus meeting earlier today. https://twitter.com/bdoulaoblongata/status/664279346807312384 https://twitter.com/Nettaaaaaaaa/status/664281913780215808 https://twitter.com/CMroczka/status/664281777117118464 https://twitter.com/CMroczka/status/664284161176285184 https://twitter.com/BradleyRayford/status/664283641829265408 https://twitter.com/collier/status/664266056135868416 https://twitter.com/Chrissyykat/status/664269441945853953 https://twitter.com/mariehaileyy/status/664269965722169345 https://twitter.com/ShaunKing/status/664290411058487297 An MU Alert was released. https://twitter.com/MUalert/status/664258956676743168 As of Tuesday evening, MU Alert stated the following:
