University of Missouri's president resigned on Monday following a string of race-related incidents that students said he did not take enough action on.

Racial tensions at the University of Missouri have brewing since September when a student said he was racially abused on campus. Then in October, someone yelled the N-word at a group of black students. Later that month, feces were smeared in the shape of a swastika on the wall of a residence hall. In a protest to push Tim Wolfe to resign as president, one student went on a hunger strike in protest. Then, the football team refused to practice. 

Koran Addo of the St. Louis Post Dispatch joined the show with more.
