A black graduate student at Yale who fell asleep in her dorm’s common room said she had a disturbing awakening this week when a white student flipped on the lights, told her she had no right to sleep there and called the campus police.
Police demanded ID from the student, and tried to verify the ID with the university, rather than handing back the ID and leaving.
