Yesterday, during a Donald Trump rally in Valdosta, Georgia, a group of approximately 30 black university students was escorted from the event before it even began, in spite of the fact that they were sitting quietly, waiting to hear the candidate speak.

Valdosta University had a white-only campus until 1963, so racial tensions aren’t exactly far removed from the institution.

Student Tahjila Davis cried as she told the camera what happened, saying, “I guess people — what’s going on in America, they’re afraid that we’re gonna say something or do something, but we just wanted to watch the rally.”
