Michael Marsland/Yale University(NEW HAVEN, Conn.) — A Yale dean said the Ivy League university needs to work at becoming “truly inclusive” after a white student called police on a black classmate who had fallen asleep in a dormitory common area.“Incidents like that of last night remind us of the continued work needed to make Yale a truly inclusive place,” Lynn Cooley, the dean of Yale’s graduate school of arts and sciences, said in an email to students on Tuesday.The graduate student, Lolade Siyonbola, sparked outrage about racial profiling on Monday after she posted a video showing her long interaction with campus police officers and the white student who called them.“I deserve to be here. I pay tuition like everybody else,” Siyonbola, a 34-year-old graduate student in African studies, said after police asked her to present identification. “I’m not going to justify my existence here.”“I really don’t know if there’s a justification for you actually being in the building,” she said to the officers, after proving her enrollment.Siyonbola even unlocked her dorm-room door in front of the officers to prove she lived there after they insisted on seeing her ID.“We’re in a Yale building, and we need to make sure that you belong here,” one officer said in the video. The officers said the encounter lasted longer than expected because her name appears differently in the school’s system.Siyonbola, who ended up being questioned for nearly 20 minutes, said she had fallen asleep while working on a paper in a common room of her dorm. She told police that the female student who reported her suffered from mental illness and had called police on another student in the past.Another black graduate student told ABC affiliate WTNH-TV that the same woman called police on him about a month ago.Reneson Jean-Louis told police the woman said to him at the time, “‘You’re making me uncomfortable. I don’t feel safe around you. You’re an intruder. You need to leave. You need to get out.’”“This is, again, a blatant case of racial profiling that needs to be addressed at Yale, university-wide,” he added.Cooley said in her email that she’s “committed to redoubling our efforts to build a supportive community in which all graduate students are empowered in their intellectual pursuits and professional goals within a welcoming environment.”The incident is the latest in a string of recent high-profile encounters involving black people who have been wrongfully reported.Earlier this week, a group of black Airbnb renters in Southern California said they planned to sue Rialto Police Department over how it responded to a 911 caller reporting a burglary at their rental location. A similar situation unfolded in downtown Philadelphia last month involving two black men at a Starbucks where a manager reported them because they hadn’t purchased anything.Siyonbola didn’t immediately respond to social media requests for additional comment, but she wrote about the incident on her Facebook page Tuesday afternoon: “Grateful for all the love, kind words and prayers, your support has been overwhelming. Black Yale community is beyond incredible and is taking good care of me.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
