Trump bans blacks from rally, still allowed them to use white water fountains

Gawker - In Georgia on Monday, about 30 black Valdosta State University students were removed from a Donald Trump campaign event, hosted at the school’s PE complex. The students were removed at the candidate’s request, the Des Moines Register reports, before the event even began.

“We didn’t plan to do anything,” one of the students, Tahjila Davis, 19, said. “They said, ‘This is Trump’s property; it’s a private event.’ But I paid my tuition to be here.” Secret Service agents escorted the students out of the event; Valdosta police ushered them farther away from the rally.

“I don’t understand why they would do something like that,” she said. “I have not experienced any racism on this campus until now.” Valdosta State was a whites-only campus until 1963.

I added the Chrome Plugin that changes Trump's name back to his ancestral "Drumpf" wherever it appears in your browser. It makes this article much more enjoyable! Get the plugin here:
