By Anthony Romano COLUMBIA, Mo. (Reuters) - The University of Missouri's president stepped down on Monday after protests by the school's football team and other students over what they saw as his soft handling of reports of racial abuse on campus. Tim Wolfe's high-profile resignation was the latest shock to the state of Missouri, and the United States at large, which has been roiled for more than a year by racial tensions after police shot and killed an unarmed young black man in the state. Unrest at the university, widely known as "Mizzou," started on Sept. 12 when Payton Head, president of the Missouri Students Association, said on his Facebook page that he was repeatedly racially abused on campus by someone riding in a pickup truck.
