Soledad O’Brien Reacts to #NappingWhileBlack Incident at Yale

At Yale, Sarah Braasch called the police on Lolade Siyonbola for falling asleep in the common room of the Yale residence hall where they both live. That incident became the center of a viral social media story.

These two PhD candidates have been the subject of many stories, and Siyonbola uploaded two videos to Facebook. One showed Braasch filming her and telling Siyonbola that the common room is not for sleeping. The other video was of her interaction with police once they arrived.

Soledad O’Brien was one of several people who took to social media to correct a headline that said “someone” called the police.
