The aftermath of racial protests and college football player push back against University leaders continues to resonate months after the initial dust up . . . Along with the horrible response to all the drama from college leaders who are now long gone. Somewhere at a push coffee shop in the Pacific Northwest, professor Melissa Click is having a good laugh . . . 25 employees were impacted . . . Checkit:

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- The University of Missouri-Columbia is laying off 20 employees. MU spokesman Christian Basi says 20 administrative employees in MU's Division of Operations will be laid off, effective July 1.

I wonder how much money Melissa Click, and the universities subsequent capitulation to a wealthy opportunist who was looking to set up a post-graduation gig as "organizer", has really cost the university? It's definitely in 8-figures, maybe close to 9-figures. The problem could have easily gone away by:

1. Firing Click IMMEDIATELY.

2. Telling the protesters that "show us some PROOF that something actually happened ON CAMPUS, and we'll rain down holy hell as appropriate.

3. PUBLICLY questioning the motives of Mr. Hunger Strike, who's parents are millionaires and who had already tried the same thing earlier in the year when he lost his grad-student insurance.

4. Forcing Pinkel to shut the hell up, letting the football team know what the lead protestor's REAL situation was, asking them if it's really worth the chance of losing their scholarship, and following through if they didn't back down.

5. Standing behind their administrators instead of sacrificing them as quickly as they could to appease the mob.

...instead, it was a comedy of errors.

did they close the journalism school?

who would want a degree from it now, or, wait, maybe they would if they want a job at legacy media.

Aaawwww, maybe MUDZZOU's little 'tard 'flakes will have to get some real muscle over there, now that money's be lacking. Yeah, full-time jobs muscle with part-time school, and likely, lots more in loans muscle. Or, forego big debt burdens, if they can come outta the safe spaces for skilled trades or military, instead like GREAT generations before them. Well, just a thought.

ZAGs couldn't get muscle enough over in Phoenix, especially in the last couple of minutes when Roy's Boys didn't look as TAR'ed. GONE, went ZAG!

But, Click's Karnowski & crew did better than the Jaylbirds and the Tiggers.

Let the BLM thugs burn down the school just like they burned down Ferguson and Baltimore.

Sow salt in the earth where it used to be and erect a statue of Obama in a golf cart.

I don't know any big donors to MU, but one of my best friends, a big MU fan and graduate, does. He gave me the name of a guy, who with his 6 friends have paid for front row seats at football and basketball games since, wait for it---1950.The guy's name didn't mean anything to me and I didn't google it during the conversation, but, rest assured, he is a big hitter. The man not only cancelled his seats, he also called the University and told them they could forget his "7 figure" bi yearly donations.

Everyone that I know, who went to MU, including my daughter, is sickened by this farce and the pathetic pandering to the narcissistic, self absorbed, "Black Lives Matter" buffoons. Their specious, fallacious and pernicious charges are the usual Racial Hoax bullshit that the Media thrives and makes bank on. Without exception, every MU Grad I know, is loathe to wear the MU Gear and is either no longer mentioning the School, or, is reticent at best when MU is mentioned.

The University is and should be suffering for the obsequious and pusillanimous behavior exhibited by administrators, professors and politicians when confronted by intellectual midgets with 3rd grade educations, elevated to collegiate matriculation, by way of the color of their skin in African American and Gender Studies classes which my dog could pass/fail with ease, by just showing up and scratching his nuts during the lectures.

I hope the pain is real and deep.

By the way, Taco Bell, according to CNN, is the number one donor to "Black Lives Matter".

Fuck them too.

3:23 took the pacifier out long enough to shout and pout like a f*n crybaby. Did ya march around, wave your sign and leave filthy litter behind at your hunger strike/bridge barricade/roadblock/protest du jour?

Boo hoo, geezers cut the endowments, and gibsmes go melty.

Notice it's the low-level workers that get canned. No upper-level suit-wearing "administrators" with nice offices and assistants got the boot.

I am a world class MoDOT Traffic Engineer who times stoplights in St. Joseph. The people of St. Joseph hate me, but TKC bloggers love me. And I use taxpayer money to attend MU sporting events and donate to their football scholarship funds. And there's not a single thing you people can do about it. If you have a problem with me, just call the St. Joe office and ask for the guy who "times the stoplights on the Belt Highway". That's me.

3:40 is spot on!

We were going to visit so my son/daughter could consider MU. No way now!

I hope it fails and MU leadership can go tell hell.

You better change your tune and show some appreciation. A lot of Missouri state workers like myself are Mizzou grads. I work for MoDOT timing STOPLIGHTS in St. Joseph. I drive a foreign made car with Mizzou personalized license plates on it because I refuse to patronize a bunch of union workers at Claycomo. But you have no choice. Every time you fill up your tank in Mo you are paying my salary which I then use to patronize MU sports. And you can't boycott me.

Right. . . the layoffs have nothing to do with the massive budget cuts from the state. Or the lower enrollments that are effecting all universities. Or the lower international student applications (who pay full tuition). You need to take a basic social science class.

^^^+1. You can't argue with theses ignorant geezers. Facts are useless to them. They use any negative news to push their ignorant racist views. Chuck is the biggest offender. He thinks if he uses words like "Pusillanimous" & "obsequious" in his ignorant racist screeds, the simps on this blog will think he's smart or clever. He is neither. He's the typical, uneducated, racist, white-trash hick this blog seems to attract.

^^^8:07/8:19 - What the goobers and gibsmes missed:

www.npr.org/2016/09/17/What's Causing The Increased Enrollment At HBCUS?

US News and World Report/02/09/2016

The first npr interview transcript tells about how MUDZZOU is losing loads of blacks. The second says more enrollment is going for on-line courses.

They're both brief, easy reads that don't have many BIG words.
But, don't bother reading those if it's easier to make up your own Hilly and Brian Williams sniper fire fictions.

Nah. Donors are walking away, because they don't want to subsidize Free Shit Army protests. Start Diversity University somewhere else. You lose the endowments, and the enthusiasm of real working people for their college, you've lost the school.

BLM is just a mob. This time they ruined a school. Get over it.
