Black Student Has Police Called On Her While Eating Lunch

Another day brings another #LivingWhileBlack incident. An African-American student was confronted by a police officer after she only sat down to eat lunch during a work break at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts on Tuesday afternoon.

The racial profiling incident was sparked by a white college employee who reported the rising sophomore, who wasn’t identified by name, for having looked “out of place,” cheap editing services http://teacherswithoutborders.org/teach/do-my-university-assignment/21/ levitra facts http://journalism.stanford.edu/project/thesis-on-skills-development/10/ mba essay consultant http://laclawrann.org/programs/viagra-tablet-price/17/ https://thejeffreyfoundation.org/newsletter/how-to-write-my-essay/17/ custom house essay scarlet letter case method example http://snowdropfoundation.org/papers/960-grid-thesis/12/ identity theft paper generic viagra houston https://goodsamatlanta.org/patients/viagra-propecia-propecia-xenical-xenical-celebrex/01/ follow url https://creativephl.org/pills/costcoviagra/33/ thesis co advisor http://www.nationalnewstoday.com/medical/xenical-purchase-online/2/ http://v-nep.org/classroom/elementary-essays/04/ https://www.guidelines.org/blog/thesis-proposal-android/93/ follow site no rx finasteride https://tasteofredding.org/6947-viagra-for-women-cbs-news/ byu thesis library https://heystamford.com/writing/benefits-of-community-service-essay/8/ go to link resume help center thesis on english literatureВ http://sonkaucc.org/?p=hydrochlorothiazide-dogs&mg=25 do my assingmnet for me click here http://laclawrann.org/programs/buy-citodon/17/ descriptive essay about the beach example The Boston Globe reported. The employee’s description of the student — similar to that used to refer to people of color who are wrongfully deemed “suspicious” for being in majority-White spaces and neighborhoods — was completely wrong.

A campus police officer was called to a campus common room and quickly discovered there was “nothing suspicious about the student’s presence” at Smith, which is a private women’s college. The incident is another example of police being summoned to a scene to only investigate a Black person for living their daily life. Wow.

The student, who said the employee thought she was a “suspicious Black male,” revealed her feelings about the horrible incident on Facebook. She couldn’t believe that she was targeted while working as a residential advisor and teaching assistant.

“I am blown away at the fact that I cannot even sit down and eat lunch peacefully,” she wrote in one post. “I did nothing wrong, I wasn’t making any noise or bothering anyone. All I did was be black. It’s outrageous that some people question my being at Smith College, and my existence overall as a woman of color.”

An investigation has been launched into the incident, and the caller’s identity has not been released by the college.
