Black women in their first year at Washington, D.C.’s American University say they have been targeted for racist, anti-woman attacks by white men on campus.
BuzzFeed News said Saturday that the women have been pelted with rotten bananas as a racist taunt and their property has been vandalized.
Sophomore Ma’at Sargeant — president of AU’s Black Student Alliance — told BuzzFeed that one of the women was alone in her dorm room on Sep. 8 when a group of white men forced open the door and threw a rotten banana at her.
A freshman named Neah Gray — who lives on the same dorm floor as the woman who was attacked in her room — told the Washington Post that she has found bananas outside her door and crude drawings of male genitalia on the whiteboard hanging outside her room.
