PERSPECTIVE: Racial Tensions Nothing New at Mizzou

The sad story, historically, at the state’s flagship institution. Recent actions are related to a history of issues. Story courtesy The New York Times.

From the article:

“Cynthia Frisby, a journalism professor, crystallized this history in the Missourian newspaper this week. In nearly 18 years at the university, she wrote, “I have been called the n-word too many times to count.” She recalled jogging along a road in May when a white man in a truck flying a Confederate flag stopped, spat at her, called out a racist slur and sped off. And passersby in pickup trucks were not the only perpetrators: “I have had a few faculty call me the n-word and treat me with incredible disrespect. Yes, faculty.”
