NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Two anti-Black Lives Matter protesters were escorted off the University of Oklahoma campus as OU President David Boren joined a crowd of students and used a megaphone to order the men off campus.

The Oklahoma Daily reports ( ) one man called students racist while a second carried a sign that read “BLM Rent A Riot” on one side and “BLM Are Racist Thugs” on the other.
