After weeks of racial tension on the campus of the University of Missouri, we’re wondering how the team’s special all-white uniform for Saturday’s “whiteout” game against BYU will be received. Probably no big deal, right?

Many teams have these “whiteout” games throughout the year — think snow storm, not Klan rally — so it’s really not a big deal.
But, according to reports, students can no longer buy “whiteout” merchandise on campus:

It will all equal out, however, as there is a “blackout” game scheduled for November 21:
Just to clarify, Missouri designated BYU game as whiteout game before the season began. Tennessee game (Nov. 21) is blackout game.

And because “Blackout” isn’t controversial, you can still buy that merchandise online:
Is that fair?
