Many Black students at Kansas State University are afraid to return to school after a white student made a racist tweet about George Floyd, a Black man who died at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis. 

The Kansas City Star reports that some people supported Jaden McNeil's right to free speech, but many called for him to be expelled for his insensitive remarks.

Last week, President Richard Myers announced that the university would not expel McNeil. Instead, the university said it will develop a social media policy for students and recruit and retain more students and faculty of color.
