Yale: Officers admonished white student for calling police

Lolade Siyonbola had the police called on her by a white student who found her napping in a common area of their shared dorm

"I deserve to be here". I paid tuition like everybody else.

"I installed it to record what I knew was going to happen", she said.

Graduate student Lolade Siyonbola recorded the moment she confronted a white dorm mate who called the police on her for taking a nap in a common area. Last month, a Starbucks manager called the police when two black men sat in a Philadelphia store without ordering anything. A black person is minding their own business.

Everything appears to have started at Yale University's Hall of Graduate Studies when Siyonbola, who was allegedly working on her paper, rested for a bit in a common room.

The Yale Daily News reports that graduate students received an email Tuesday from the dean of Yale's graduate school of arts and sciences inviting them to share their concerns about the incident.

The caller reported a black woman sleeping on a couch in a common area of a graduate building.

What followed was a racially-tinged, police-involved dispute between neighbors that aired lived on Facebook - then spread.

Siyonbola relented and handed over her ID.

She says the officers who responded admonished the complaining student and that the other student had every right to be present.

Sadler has yet to publicly respond, but a source said she called the senator's daughter, Meghan McCain, to apologize. Soon after reports about the insulting attack, McCain's wife took to Twitter to reach out to Sadler directly.

"You still see it here", Fatih Celikbas said. But, even with this, she still had to provide identification to ensure that she "belongs there".

Ultimately, but unhappily, Siyonbola relented.

Golf-Crews said that she's discussing with campus police and other university staff "to better understand what exactly happened at HGS on Monday night, and how we can work together to avoid such incidents in the future". "I can tell you tons of other minor stories of microaggressions", she said. On Monday night, she made a decision to take a nap. "I'm not going to have a good night after this".

Ms. Braasch did not immediately return an email seeking comment. Three police officers went to the scene, where they questioned the two students separately.

"You're making me uncomfortable", she allegedly said.

And with the "while black" incidents piling up, the aggrieved parties have begun to point out the similarities - sometimes in the very videos they post.

Yale police detailed the encounter in a statement Thursday amid uproar over the latest instance where a white person called the police on a person of color in an otherwise everyday situation. In some instances, they felt like celebrating their blackness was being treated as a crime. Another student came in, turned on the lights and told her, "You're not supposed to be sleeping here".

In a blog post from 2011, Braasch described an incident in which a male Wisconsin Supreme Court justice called the female chief justice a "bitch", saying it would have been taken more seriously if he'd called her a racial slur.

"They were not sure that I should be there, because I'm a black woman at Yale".
