Even this story is about the black person where are the photos and the story behind the White girl? (ODT)

It seems the story has been told a hundred times before.

A white person sees a person of colour doing something they disagree with. They call the police. The videos of the police encounter show up on social media and soon it appears on news outlets across the world.

Lolade Siyonbola is a black postgraduate student at Yale University. She shares a common room with other students that live in the same hall of residence.

On 8 May, a white student living in the Ivy League university’s hall of graduate studies saw Lolade napping on a sofa in the shared room.

She called the police.
