Protestors have convinced Tim Wolfe to step down from his position as president of the University of Missouri.

Wolfe’s resignation came after multiple issues arose involving black students saying that Wolfe would not respond to racial slurs as well as verbal attacks on black students.

A graduate student went on a hunger strike and 30 of the university football players would not play or practice until the resignation became official. Multiple school officials have called this action a step in the right direction.

Hunter M. Park, 19, a student at Missouri, made threats to shoot all the black students on the social media app Yik Yak.

“I’m going to stand my ground tomorrow and shoot every black person I see,” Park wrote.

According to University of Missouri police, Park was taken into custody around 1:50 a.m.
