Do you remember Lolade Siyonbola, the Nigerian student who made headline when she drifted off to sleep in the classroom and her classmate called the police on her? She’s back in the news but for different but related issue. In an interview with TheCable, Lolade Siyonbola said Blacks are unsafe in America.
Here’s some excerpts from the interview.
When drifted off to sleep in her dorm’s common room, she couldn’t have dreamt that she was about to find herself in the middle of a racial discrimination conversation.
“America is generally unsafe for black people”.
In Yale university?
“nothing sufficient is being done by the institution’s management.
Over the years they have increased recruitment of Black students, but there is still a long way to go.
“What they need now is a structured office for addressing racial discrimination and enforcing punitive measures for such transgressions.”
Due to the US’s history of racism and racial terror, there is an infinite number of organisations who are doing this work and have been for generations.”
