Natasha Nkhama, a Baylor University student confided in her friend Jaileene Maite about a racist attack which had happened to her on election day. The friend then decided to post the incident on her Twitter account, which did not take long to go viral.
Nkhama related the story to her friend of how a white male student “went out of his way to bump into [her] and shove [her] off the sidewalk,” then telling her that, “No n****s are allowed on the sidewalk”.
A male student who had witnessed the incident, came to her defense and said, “Dude, what are you doing? That’s not cool.”
In which the bully replied, “Dude, like what…I’m just trying to make America great again.”
Not long after the video had circulated through social media, the hashtag #IWalkWithNatasha was inspired, on Friday, a multitude of students gathered in order to walk with Natasha to school not only to keep her safe but to show solidarity as well.
“I just wanted to thank everyone for being here…I want everyone who sees this to know that Baylor us a campus of love,” stated Natasha.
“To the gentleman who said those words, I’m praying for you and I love you….And everyone here loves you, and we just want to see the world be a better place,” She states.
