Members of the Legion of Black Collegians said that they were confronted by a man on the campus of the University of Missouri who used a racial slur. Members of the group said that a campus safety officer did not do enough to address the situation. Earlier, the student body president said he was subjected to racial slurs by a group of men driving by him in a pickup truck.
R. Bowen Loftin , chancellor of the University of Missouri, who was out of the country at the time, posted the following video condemning the latest incident. In the statement, Chancellor Loftin said, “It’s enough. Let’s stop this. Let’s end hatred and racism. We’re part of the same family. You don’t hate your family.”
The University also announced that all new students at the University of Missouri will be required to take a diversity training course focused on racism. University faculty and staff members will also be required to complete training.
