Baylor University Student Assaulted by Trump Supporter Receives Unexpected Escort to Class - CitizenSlant

Natasha Nkhama says that she was “shocked” after a Donald Trump supporter allegedly shoved her and verbally assaulted her, saying “No n—–s allowed on the sidewalk.”

She posted her experience in a Twitter video.

Nkhama is a student at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. She said that when a bystander intervened, allegedly saying “dude what are you doing? That’s not cool,” the man tried to justify his actions by echoing Trump’s campaign slogan claiming he was “Just trying to make American great again.”

The incident allegedly took place November 9, the day after the presidential election after Donald Trump’s stunning victory. In her video, Natasha said that the man “went out of his way to bump into me and shove me off the sidewalk.”

But there was a silver lining to the story. Using the hashtag #IWalkWithNatasha, hundreds of students staged a walk to accompany her to class. More than 300 people accompanied Natasha to her classes.

Natasha says that she’s proud of the support that she has received by her fellow students.

“I just want to thank everyone for being here. And, I want everyone who sees this at Baylor — and everyone outside of Baylor — to know that Baylor is a campus of love. And, Baylor is a campus that watches out for each other…and that one person is not a reflection of us. They’re a reflection of themselves…we look out for each other over here.

And to whomever offended me the other day — I don’t know who you are but — I thank you, honestly. Thank you for being an example for everyone else on campus. To the gentleman that said those words, I’m praying for you…”

Baylor has been facing its share of criticism for its response to sexual assault on campus and particularly by its student athletes, causing several high profile departures.

Sounds like a hoax. Right now the media is desperate for these stories so if you send them anything about white Trump supporters attacking any POC or LGTBQIA people they will print it up without any corroborating evidence.
