KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The chants at Thompson-Boling Arena are a bit different at the Vols versus Mississippi game.
Many in the student section wore all black and chanted things like, "Let's go justice," instead of the normal, "Let's go defense." They were also heard chanting, "Hey, hey, ho, ho, racism has got to go."
The student body has expressed disapproval over a number of incidents, including a recent incident of blackface. Students had planned a protest to take place on the Pedestrian Walkway, but did not confirm they would be inside protesting.
The university said it will host a discussion forum about free speech and hate speech on Wednesday.
