In a football game where few headlines were expected to be made, Eastern Michigan students raised their fists and chanted in protest throughout. Immediately following the games conclusion, the group of students took to the field with an old battle cry “no justice, no peace!”

Racial unrest has reached a boiling point at Eastern Michigan University. Racist graffiti was found Tuesday morning in the courtyard of EMU’s Julia Anne King Hall. The graffiti said both “KKK” and “go home” alongside a racist term. The graffiti was in colors red, white and blue.
Students then marched to University House where university president James Smith resides.
“The University strongly condemns such a racist and thoughtless act, which runs completely counter to the values and welcoming environment of our highly diverse Eastern Michigan University community,” Smith said.
Nobody was injured during the protest.
