Michael Sam Shows His Support For Missouri's Protests Against Racism

(4) Comments | Posted November 9, 2015 | 10:39 AM

Michael Sam graduated from the University of Missouri in 2013, but it's safe to say he would have walked out of class today were he still a student. 

On Monday, the former Mizzou football star added his voice to the growing chorus of students, professors and athletes protesting racial tensions on campus with walkouts this week, encouraging the school to "stand by #ConcernedStudent1950" on twitter.

"Concerned Student 1950" is the name adopted by a group of student protesters who pushed for the resignation of university president Tim Wolfe. Wolfe announced his resignation Monday morning. ("1950" is a nod to Gus T. Ridgel, MU's first black graduate, who received his diploma in 1950.)

Sam said the news of Wolfe's resignation was "not surprising at all."

"We stand by each other," he added. "We are a family."

ESPN reporter Howard Bryant noted Sam was on campus for the protests Monday.

Mizzou football coach Gary Pinkel also supported the protest, even though it meant his players would not engage in any football-related activities until a resolution could be reached.
