Eastern Michigan students protest racist graffiti during Wyoming game

Saturday September 24th, 2016

Eastern Michigan students staged a protest during EMU’s game against Wyoming on Friday night in response to racist graffiti being found on the school’s campus earlier in the week. 

Students were seen protesting in the end zone of the Eagles’ football stadium during the game. The students, as well as some players who reportedly joined the demonstration, then moved onto the field after the game concluded.

Students were also in the stands yelling protest chants, which was captured by MLive.com.

Earlier in the week, a "KKK" in red, white and blue spray paint was spotted on campus, along with a message on a courtyard wall that read "Leave N------".

Eastern Michigan won 27–24.
