WHAT THE HELL? I can’t believe they actually arrested and took her to the police station for basically NO reason! And the whole laptop thing, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? And then white people and obviously deluded people of color would tell you to “Get over racism. it doesn’t exist anymore”. This is CLEAR evidence right here. It’s annoying me that some people are focusing on the fact that “she broke a few college rules” as opposed to the elephant in the room here; this young woman was discriminated against and treated like a criminal, because she has more melanin in her skin bc that’s apparently a crime. if you cannot see that, check yourself. DON’T @ ME.

I spent the early hours of Saturday morning at the South Hadley Police Department having been arrested at Mount Holyoke for “breach of peace.” This is how the story begins.
My boyfriend Sam came to visit me on a whim so I took my blankets and my things to an unoccupied room in the dorm where my friends and I often hang out. I have a roommate who I couldn’t kick out on such short notice so I set up the other room for Sam and I to hangout. On Friday night Sam and I were drinking in that room with some of our friends when suddenly two officers from campus police showed up.
