Yale Student Reports Black Classmate To Campus Police For Napping

A white Yale graduate student reported one of her black classmates (Lolade Siyonbola) to campus police for napping in a dorm common room — and the student was interrogated for 15 minutes because her name was misspelled in the school database.

... the (white) woman called campus police months prior after one of the black student’s friends got lost in her building.
“I have every right to call the police,” the defensive white grad student said ...

The second video ... shows Siyonbola’s interaction with campus officers as they ask her to see identification.
“We need to make sure you belong here,” a female officer told her.
“I deserve to be here,” Siyonbola asserted after one of the officers told her to “sit tight” as they run her ID. “I paid tuition like everybody else; I am not going to justify my existence here.”

The confrontation continued for more than 15 minutes as police struggled to verify that Siyonbola was a student, ultimately acknowledging that her name was misspelled in the database.
When Yale Daily News reached the Yale Police Department for comment, they defended the officers’ actions and said they were following “protocol.”

We can't do nothing without a colonizer thinking we're committing a crime.

The other day I heard about the police being called on some black women because an old white woman saw them packing their stuff when they were leaving their AirBNB rental. The YT woman assumed they were burglarizing the house.

Lol!!!!!

Look at the two pics. Maybe a fellow white male student is showing interest in the naija girl and it’s pisssing this white girl off.

As for the police....don’t student ID’s have a student/faculty picture? They really needed to verify her misspelt name to let her go. I hope the officers have a solo accident somewhere and suffer a lot of pain.

Did they misspell both names? You can check the directory at my school by first and last name. Yale is a big school, but how common is the name Siyonbola?

I thought that was a white male student until I started reading the article.

What janky systems do they have at Yale? I worked campus security when I was in college and it was very easy to verify a student, misspelled name or not. And that was before we all had smartphones and all.

There’s the I.D. for one, unless you think someone really forged a Yale ID just to sleep on campus...come on son.

Then there’s the very uncommon first name she has. You can search by that.

You can ask her for her campus email address and run it...

People be doing the absolute most.
