Black Yale student questioned by police

A Yale Grad student, Lolade Siyonbol was questioned by police recently for napping in the common room of her dorm room.  Why? All because another student called the police on her because Lolade is black. 

Lolade took to her Facebook page to stream the student calling the police and the second video while she was being interrogated. 


After some confusion, Lolade was finally told she was free to go.  


This story has made National headlines after incidents like this one are happening all over the country, like the two black men who were arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks.  

People from Yale and all over the country are sending thoughtful messages to Lolade and she went on her Facebook page to thank everyone for their support.
