Here is the transcript thereof:

Hello.  This is Sarah Braasch.  Welcome or welcome back to my channel. 

Today I am going to discuss the harassment I endured in my dorm room and on Yale’s campus this past spring between February 24thand May 8th, 2018, which culminated in the notorious Living or Napping While Black incident.  

I will devote an entire video to discussing what occurred on February 24th, 2018, but I just want to point out that I was the person who was terrorized in my isolated dorm room that evening.  I was terrified and trapped in my dorm room, unable to leave for hours.  

The harassment I endured occurred in stages.  It seemed that my attackers changed tactics each time I really put my foot down in my appeals to Provosts Stephanie Spangler and Cynthia Smith.  

The first stage took place between February 24th, 2018, and approximately April 6th, 2018.  It was during this time that I believe that I was primarily being harassed by the Resident Coordinators of the Hall of Graduate Studies, my dormitory.  I believe, now more than ever, that the Resident Coordinators were acting with my attackers to harass me.  I believe that at least one of the Resident Coordinators may have actually been present at the party that took place in the 12thfloor common room on the evening of February 24th, 2018, and I believe that she may have participated in terrorizing me in my dorm room that evening. I believe that the Resident Coordinators acted with my attackers in order to retaliate against me, because they blamed me for having been reprimanded by the Yale Housing Managers for their behavior on February 24th.  

As I had mentioned in my prior video, the Yale Housing Managers had said that they would be more than happy to simply close the 12thfloor common room for the duration of the academic year, but when I subsequently requested as much, I was told by the Resident Coordinators that they refused to close it.  I then asked that it at least be closed to parties, and I was ignored.  Between February 24thand April 6th, 2018, the Resident Coordinators booked parties in the 12thfloor common room as never before, parties that were in even more egregious violation of housing regulations, which went late into the evening, well into quiet hours, and which were raucous and obnoxiously loud.  Additionally, the room was consistently trashed and trash was strewn about everywhere, in the stairwell, with the nearby trash bins overflowing and mounds of garbage piled up next to them, causing the entire stairwell to reek.  

This occurred more often than it ever had before, even though the Resident Coordinators had made a commitment to monitor use of the 12thfloor common room, to ensure that the housing regulations were being abided by.  

I interpreted this as retaliation for my having asserted my rights to live in a safe environment and to be able to take reasonable precautions to enter my dorm room safely, including by calling the non emergency helpline of the Yale campus police if need be.  I let the Provosts and Yale Housing know that I regarded it as such.  

I ended up recording the noise coming through the adjoining wall into my dorm room during one of the parties, and I took pictures of the overflowing trash bins.  I sent this evidence, via email, to the Provosts, as well as Yale Housing, and I demanded that the Resident Coordinators desist in booking outrageous parties in the 12thfloor common room to retaliate against me for having asserted my rights under both Title IX and the ADA.  

I was assured by the Provosts that they had dealt with Yale Housing, and that this behavior would cease altogether.  

At this point, I believe that my attackers changed tactics.

Between approximately April 6thand April 24th, the focus of the harassment and attacks was on my dorm room door.  Someone would approach my door at least once each evening, late in the evening, and grab the door handle, shaking it ferociously, as if they were attempting to break into my room.  Sometimes they would also pound on the door.  Sometimes they would also scream or yell.  

Of course this was terrifying.  

Around the 24thof April, prompted by a follow up email by Provosts Spangler and Smith, I made them aware of the harassment.  I also sent an email to Officer Grace Schenkle to let her know of the harassment. She told me that she would add the information to the police report that she had filed.  

At this time, I was told by the Provosts and Officer Schenkle to call the Yale campus police at any time for any reason.  

I told them that I had not been calling the Yale campus police, because I was terrified of further retaliation.  

I also told them that I did not know who was harassing me, as my door had no peep hole, and I had been doing as instructed by not opening my door, not confronting my harassers, and not saying anything to them in response thru the door.  I did tell the Provosts and Officer Schenkle that I strongly suspected the Resident Coordinators and the students who were involved in the February 24thincident.  

Provosts Spangler and Smith said that they would address the matter with Yale Housing.  I demanded to be refunded any rent payments to Yale Housing as my dorm room was uninhabitable, due to the fact that I was being terrorized in my own home, and Yale was doing absolutely nothing to address this.  I begged the Provosts and Yale Housing to close the 12thfloor common room, as it was only being used as an excuse and a vehicle to harass and attack me. I begged the Provosts and Yale Housing to tell the Resident Coordinators and the students who had been involved in the February 24thincident to stay away from me, my dorm room, and the 12thfloor of the Hall of Graduate Studies, as they had promised me that they would do.  

I wished for nothing more than to leave, but I was trapped, as I had to be in New Haven, to teach, but I simply lacked the funds to remove to a nearby hotel.  

I began to make arrangements to leave campus as soon as was feasible.  I began to pack up my belongings, and I made arrangements and began removing items to a storage facility in New Haven.  I asked friends of mine in NYC if I could come and stay with them as soon as possible.  

I began to be afraid for my life.  I know that when harassment escalates like that that the next step is physical violence. I told the Yale Administration and the Yale campus police as much.  

Between approximately April 24thand May 8th, 2018, which was the final stage of the harassment, my attackers’ tactics changed yet again.  

The focus during the final stage of harassment was on the adjoining wall between the 12thfloor common room and my dorm room.  

Instead of holding raucous parties in the 12thfloor common room, and instead of attacking my dorm room door, it seemed as though there were just a couple of persons, maybe two or three, who would scream and yell into my dorm room from the 12thfloor common room, thru the adjoining wall on most evenings. Of course, I now believe strongly that this was the man and the woman who made numerous television appearances for the purpose of defaming me.  

There was also a great deal of slamming of doors, both the elevator door and the common room door.

I will do an entirely separate video to address what actually happened on the evening of May 7thand the early morning of May 8th.  Suffice it to say that I was terrorized on that evening as well. 

Additionally, I had mentioned that I had begun hearing myself being discussed, as I walked across campus, as a racist who should be kicked off campus and thrown out of school, and I now believe that my movement to and from my dorm was being tracked and that I was being stalked, perhaps not consistently.  There were at least two other occurrences of a similar nature.  I did not record the exact dates upon which these occurred.  One such occurrence involved a group of presumed Yale students discussing me in similar terms, as I exited the Yale Post Office.  They all stopped and glared at me as I exited the building.  I now believe that they followed me there and waited for me to exit.  

As much as I documented, I wish that I had documented even more.  I was tremendously busy throughout the semester.  And, I never could have imagined that something like this could have happened.  

It still shocks me, as in I still literally go into physical shock sometimes, when I think of what was done to me.  A group of Yale students, assisted by the Resident Coordinators, Yale Housing, the Yale Administration, and the Yale campus police, waged a months long campaign to destroy my life, to settle a delusional, jealous, and obsessive personal vendetta against me.  They also weaponized the black social justice movement, including the Living While Black movement, to destroy my life and try to get me killed, thereby destroying the Living While Black movement in the process.

How I Resisted Being Publicly Branded a Racist by Yale Deans After the February 24th, 2018 Incident YouTube Channel Video and Transcript Parts I and II

Below please find my How I Resisted Being Publicly Branded a Racist by Yale Deans After The February 24th, 2018 Incident YouTube Channel Videos and Transcripts (Parts I and II). Many persons have requested transcripts of my videos, and I will provide them here, especially the videos of my full, detailed account of what really happened during the now notorious Living or Napping While Black incident at Yale, which was actually a hate crime hoax, and the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police were complicit.

Here is the How I Resisted Being Publicly Branded a Racist by Yale Deans After the February 24th, 2018 Incident YouTube Channel Video (Part I): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkK8qqhDxjc

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi.  My name is Sarah Braasch, and I am the PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale who was falsely accused of racism, and whose life was destroyed by the Yale Administration, the press, and a global internet rage mob.  

In my previous video, I established that I learned from the Yale Housing Director on March 2nd, 2018, that I was being accused of racism, including by a group of Yale Deans, following the February 24thincident, despite the fact that I had been told by the Yale Housing Managers that I had done nothing wrong and not to give the incident another thought.  

I wish to make clear that I absolutely believe that the Yale Deans were so eager to publicly brand me a racist, in order to destroy my life and discredit my work, because of the events in the Spring of 2015, during my first year in the PhD Program in Philosophy at Yale.  I had been socially ousted from my department by most of my grad student peers for essentially being a civil libertarian, because I stood up for the federal civil rights of a black man, our only POC job candidate for a tenure track position. As I had mentioned in a previous video, I was made aware that the graduate students went to the Yale Administration to try to have me expelled.  I believe that the only reason why I was not expelled is because the Philosophy Department faculty stood up for me.  

After recovering somewhat from the shock that the smear that I was an egregious racist was “going around” campus, as the Yale Housing Director told me, I decided that I had to take immediate action.  I am a licensed human and civil rights attorney and activist who works on the issues of implicit bias and police brutality.  This is my career.  This is my life.  Being publicly branded a racist by the Yale Deans would destroy my life and career and work, including my saving the world project.  I believe that the Yale Deans were fully aware of this.  I believe that this was their goal.  

I first reached out to the Yale Housing Director, the Yale Housing Managers, and the Resident Coordinators, or RC’s, of the Hall of Graduate Studies, via email.  I asked that, first and foremost, the 12thfloor common room either be closed entirely or closed to parties for the duration of the academic year.  I made it clear that I was very concerned for my safety, as the students involved in the February 24thincident, who had terrorized me in my own home that evening, obviously knew where I lived.  When I met with the Yale Housing Managers, immediately after the February 24thincident, they had told me that they would be very happy to simply close the 12thfloor common room for the duration of the academic year.  However, this request was denied explicitly and specifically by the Resident Coordinators. A subsequent request was ignored. This made me very concerned, because the Yale Housing Managers had expressed to me their dismay regarding how the RC’s had handled the situation on February 24th.  They also told me that they intended to reprimand the RC’s for insinuating that I had done something wrong that evening.  

I will go into this in greater detail in another video, but, ultimately, and especially in hindsight, I now believe that the Resident Coordinators of the Hall of Graduate Studies were complicit in my being terrorized in my dorm room for months.  I believe that they were working with my attackers.  I believe that this was, at least in part, in retaliation against me, because I believe that they felt that they were reprimanded, because of me.  

I next expressed my grave concern that my reputation was being maliciously maligned.  I asked to see or to be made aware of the contents of the letter that had been addressed to the Grad School Diversity Dean Michelle Nearon.  I asked to be told exactly what it was that I was being accused of having done or said that was racist.  I said that I was prepared to protect my rights and interests via the civil courts, if need be.  I made clear that I was aghast that Yale seemed to be taking the position that a middle aged disabled woman who lives alone in Yale’s on campus housing doesn’t have the right to take reasonable precautions to make sure that she can enter her dorm room safely without having her life, livelihood, and reputation threatened and without being smeared across campus as an egregious racist.  

The Yale Housing Director directed me to address my requests and inquiries to Dean Nearon.  It seemed clear to me that he no longer wished to discuss the matter with me.

I immediately sent an email with my concerns to Dean Nearon.  I told her that I was in a state of extreme distress.  I expressed my concerns for my personal safety, as well as my reputation and livelihood.  I also stated that I was prepared to pursue defamation litigation, if necessary, but that I had no desire to do so.  

Dean Nearon said that she would get back to me the following week.  

I decided that it would be a good idea to go ahead and file a police report with the Yale campus police. I filed my report with Officer Grace Schenkle on Friday, March 9th, 2018, exactly a week after I had been told by the Yale Housing Director that I was being accused of racism, including by a group of Yale Deans.  I told Officer Schenkle everything that had happened up to that point.

On Friday, March 9th, I was walking across campus when I overheard the conversation of a group of presumed students walking along side me.  They were clearly discussing me, though I was not mentioned by name. They mentioned the 12thfloor common room of the Hall of Graduate Studies and a party that took place there.  They called me a racist who should be kicked off campus and thrown out of school.  

At the time, I didn’t want to think that they knew who I was.  At the time, I didn’t want to think that I was being stalked.  

But, I now believe this to be the case.  This would not be the last such instance.

The following two weeks were spring break.  I was grateful for the reprieve from the students.  

During the two weeks of spring break, I attempted to resolve the situation with Dean Nearon.  I was not successful.  I will go into greater detail regarding my correspondence with Dean Nearon in another video.  First of all, she refused to deliberate in writing.  She wanted only to meet with me in person, without the meeting being recorded.  I refused.  After what I had been told by the Yale Housing Director, I wanted everything in writing.  She refused to help me mitigate any of the egregious damage to my reputation and livelihood.  And, she expressed a callous disregard for my personal safety.  She made clear that she had never had and never would have any intention of addressing the fact that I had been terrorized in my own home, in my isolated dorm room, on February 24th.  She also told me that if I had any further concerns for my personal safety in my dorm room in the Hall of Graduate Studies that I should move.  Let me repeat that – Dean Michelle Nearon, the Yale Associate Dean of Graduate Student Development and Diversity and the Graduate School Title IX Coordinator, told me, as a middle aged disabled woman living alone in Yale’s on campus graduate student housing, that if I had concerns for my personal safety in my own home that I should move out, that I should vacate the premises.  She also told me that the Yale Housing Director was now denying pretty much everything that he had said to me during our meeting on Friday, March 2nd, 2018.  

Needless to say, I was dismayed and terrified.  It seemed to me that the Yale Deans were determined to destroy my life, livelihood, and reputation, as well as discredit my work.  

In the next video, I will discuss how I chose to respond, including by eventually contacting the Yale University wide Title IX Coordinator, Provost Stephanie Spangler. 

Here is the How I Resisted Being Publicly Branded a Racist by Yale Deans After the February 24th, 2018 Incident YouTube Channel Video (Part II): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDlU8CkdY84

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hello.  Welcome or welcome back to my channel.  I am planning on recording a channel trailer, so that I don’t have to introduce myself or catch anyone up at the beginning of each video.  

Today I am going to continue discussing the lengths to which I had to go to resist being wrongfully publicly branded a racist by a group of Yale Deans after the February 24thincident.  

My attempts to resolve the issue with Grad School Diversity Dean Michelle Nearon, during the two weeks of spring break in mid March, 2018, had been entirely unsuccessful.  She stated that she had no interest in addressing the attacks against me, nor in helping me save my livelihood and reputation, and she advised me to move out of my home in Yale’s on campus grad student housing, if I had concerns for my personal safety.  Please note that Dean Nearon is the Grad School Title IX Coordinator, and she is also on the Yale University Title IX Steering Committee.  

I was more than distraught and dismayed.  

I had the thought that maybe going directly to Yale’s General Counsel would be a good idea. I’m an attorney, and I hoped that another attorney would realize that these Yale Deans were exposing Yale to extraordinary legal liability.  

I decided to contact Counselor Caroline Hendel.  I chose Counselor Hendel, because she is also on Yale’s Title IX Steering Committee.  

I let Counselor Hendel know that I had grave concerns that Dean Nearon was in gross violation of Title IX regulations, as well as the ADA.  I also let Counselor Hendel know that I had no desire to pursue civil litigation to protect my livelihood and reputation, but that I was prepared to do so. 

I was severely disappointed by Counselor Hendel’s eventual response.  She simply said that she had no interest in trying to help me and that I had no choice but to deal with Dean Nearon.

Around this same time, I was contacted by Sergeant Robbins Hoffman of the Yale campus police department. She was letting me know about victims’ resources with the Yale Police Department.  I let her know, via email, that I was very concerned about my personal safety, after the students’ return to campus, following spring break.  

I told Sergeant Robbins Hoffman that I felt as if Yale had put a sign on my back that read RACIST and that they had sent out an announcement that anyone who wished to do so was free to attack me and stalk me, including in my own home, with impunity. 

I never received a response from Sergeant Robbins Hoffman.  I imagined that she had been instructed by Counselor Hendel to contact me, in an effort to mitigate Yale’s legal liability, but then she had likewise been instructed not to respond to my subsequent email regarding my personal safety on Yale’s campus post spring break.

A very strange event occurred a few days later.  

I received a call from Sergeant Robbins Hoffman, but when I answered the phone, she said, “Sorry.  I dialed the wrong number,” and hung up on me. I also recognized her voice from the voice message that she had left for me.  

At this point, I was terrified.  Spring break was coming to an end, and I was terrified for what my attackers had planned for me when they returned to campus.  I didn’t know what the Yale Deans were planning for me.  I didn’t know if they were planning on having me expelled.  I knew that they were determined to publicly brand me a racist and destroy my life, livelihood, and reputation.

I just knew that I had to do everything I possibly could to save my life.  

The first thing that I did was to get in contact with the Yale Housing Managers to see if I could rescind my agreement to live in on campus housing the following academic year. I told them that I felt unsafe and unwelcome.  I also told them that I was considering moving into a nearby hotel or motel for the duration of the academic year, because I was that concerned for my safety. The Yale Administration and Yale Housing had made clear that they had no intention of protecting me from being attacked in my own home.  The problem was that I was teaching that semester, so I couldn’t simply leave New Haven altogether.  But, another problem was that I simply didn’t have the money to pay for a hotel room for a couple of months.  I was trapped.  

After having to send a number of emails, I finally got the Yale Housing Managers to release me from my contract for the subsequent academic year.  I wanted so much to simply leave New Haven and the Yale campus immediately, but I couldn’t.  

I also decided to reach out to Provost Stephanie Spangler, the Yale University wide Title IX Coordinator. I didn’t know what else to do.  

I sent an email to Provost Spangler, telling her everything that had happened.

I arranged to meet with her, and I did so, as well as with Associate Provost Cynthia Smith.  

I told them everything that had occurred.  I told them that I had very grave concerns that Dean Nearon, Counselor Hendel, and Sergeant Robbins Hoffman were all in gross violation of Title IX regulations, as well as the ADA.  I told Provosts Spangler and Smith that they had all expressed callous disregard for my personal safety on Yale’s campus.  I let them know that absolutely no one had ever addressed the fact that I was the one being attacked in my own home and stalked on campus.  

I told them that I was aghast that the Yale Administration was taking the position that a disabled middle aged woman living alone in Yale’s on campus graduate student housing has no right to take reasonable precautions to ensure that she can enter her dorm room safely, including by calling the Yale campus police on their non emergency helpline, if need be, without being publicly branded a racist by Yale Deans and without having her life, livelihood, and reputation threatened. 

I also let Provosts Spangler and Smith know that I had no desire to seek recourse in the civil courts for defamation and to protect my rights and interests, but that I was fully prepared to do so, if necessary.  (I did begin to make inquiries with local law firms at this time.)  I also made clear that I was ready to go to the press, if I needed to.  

Between the end of spring break, near the end of March, 2018, and May 8th, 2018, I dealt pretty much exclusively with Provosts Spangler and Smith.  

Provosts Spangler and Smith assured me, repeatedly, that the students who had been involved in the February 24thincident would stay away from me, my dorm room, and the 12thfloor of the Hall of Graduation Studies, because there was absolutely no reason for them to be there.  

Provosts Spangler and Smith told me repeatedly, including after speaking with Yale campus police Chief Ronnell Higgins, that it was always ok for me to call the Yale campus police, for any reason, even if I was unsure that the circumstances constituted an actual safety threat or no.  They told me that Chief Higgins had said that the Yale campus police always wants to be the one to make the determination whether there exists an actual safety hazard or no.  He said that the Yale campus police always prefers to check on the matter, whatever it might be, to make sure that everything is ok.  I had been told the exact same thing by Officer Grace Schenkle when I had filed my police report with the Yale campus police on March 9th, 2018.  I was assured repeatedly, by Provosts Spangler and Smith, that it was always ok for me to call the Yale campus police department for any reason and that I had done absolutely nothing wrong by calling the Yale campus police department on their non emergency helpline on February 24th.

Provosts Spangler and Smith told me that the group of Yale Deans who had accused me of racism after the February 24thincident, and who had tried to publicly brand me as a racist, included Associate Dean Michelle Nearon, of course, as well as the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Dean Lynn Cooley, and the Vice President of Student Life, Kimberly Goff-Crews.  

One last point that I wish to make clear in this video is that Provost Spangler accidentally revealed to me that someone at Yale was feeding my personal information, including my name, to my attackers.  Provost Spangler accidentally revealed to me that my attackers knew my name, and that this information had been released to them by someone at Yale.  Of course, I was shocked and terrified.  I did not know the names of my attackers prior to May 8th, 2018.  And, I had only seen the man who made a number of television appearances during our unfortunate encounter on February 24th.  I would have been hard pressed to recognize him again though.  I had never seen the woman before May 8th, 2018. 

In my next video, I will give you an account of what occurred between the time I began dealing with Provosts Spangler and Smith and May 8th, 2018, including the different stages of egregious harassment and stalking that occurred.  I will also tell you how I begged the Yale Administration and the Yale campus police to protect me from these attacks and how I begged them to please close the 12thfloor common room, as it was only being used as an excuse to be on the 12thfloor of the Hall of Graduate Studies and as a means to harass and attack me incessantly.

How I Learned that the Yale Deans Were Accusing Me of Racism After the February 24th, 2018 Incident YouTube Channel Video and Transcript

Here is the How I Learned That The Yale Deans Were Accusing Me Of Racism After The February 24th, 2018 Incident YouTube Channel Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC_mwtHHWcA

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi.  My name is Sarah Braasch, and I am the PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale who was falsely accused of racism, and whose life was destroyed by the Yale Administration, the press, and a global internet moral outrage mob. 

In my previous video, I established that the unfortunate encounter I had had on February 24th, 2018, with the man who made numerous television appearances, is the reason that this entire nightmare unfolded.  I will go into the particulars of February 24thin another video. I also established that I was terrorized in my own home that evening.  When I met with the Yale Housing Managers, they told me that not only had I done nothing wrong, but that I was the only person involved who had done nothing wrong, and to return to my dissertation and not give the incident another thought.  

 Approximately a week later, I was contacted by one of the Yale Housing Managers.  She asked me to come in to speak with the Yale Housing Director, as well as the Hall of Graduate Studies Resident Coordinators.  I assumed that this was so the Resident Coordinators, or RC’s, could apologize to me for their behavior.  

I told the Yale Housing Manager that I harbored no animosity towards the RC’s.  I told her that as far as I was concerned, the matter was over, and I preferred to simply return to my dissertation.

She said that I needed to come in.

I met with the Yale Housing Director on Friday, March 2nd, 2018.

I was completely shocked by what he told me.  

He told me that I was being accused of racism.  He told me that my two main accusers, the man and the woman who made numerous television appearances, wrote a letter to the Yale Grad School Diversity Dean, Michelle Nearon.  (I was not told their names.  I was told simply the man whom I had encountered and the Hall of Graduate Studies resident who had invited him.)

He told me that this accusation of racism was “gaining traction” amongst Yale Deans.  

He told me that they had convened and determined to treat this as a “teaching opportunity.”

He told me that they wanted me to undergo implicit bias training, and they wanted me to participate in a public town hall in front of the Yale community, where I was to publicly declare myself a racist and help teach others how not to be racist like me. He asked me if I was willing to do this. 

I was completely aghast.

I asked what it was that I was being accused of having done or said that was racist.  He wouldn’t tell me.

I told the Yale Housing Director that I was shocked.  I told him that I would never do or say anything racist ever.  I told him that I was a licensed human and civil rights attorney and activist who works on implicit bias and police brutality.  

The Yale Housing Director seemed very uncomfortable when I said this.  He seemed to want to end the conversation and the meeting as quickly as possible.  

Then, I asked him if anyone had addressed the fact that I was the one who was terrorized in my own home, my isolated dorm room on February 24th.  I asked him if anyone had taken any steps to address the fact that I was the one who was verbally attacked in my own home on the evening of February 24th, as the Yale Housing Managers had told me that they would do.  

The Yale Housing Director seemed shocked by my question.  He said that that was the first that he had heard of it.  He told me that he would look into it.

Then, he stood up as if he wanted me to leave his office, so I did.

I admit to being in shock for a couple of days.  Then, I reached out to the Yale Housing Director, the Yale Housing Managers, and the RC’s over email thereafter.

I will continue my story in the next video.

My Big Picture Account of What Happened at Yale During the Living or Napping While Black Incident (Parts I, II, and III) — Videos and Transcripts

Below please find my Big Picture Account of What Happened at Yale During the Living or Napping While Black Incident YouTube Channel Videos and Transcripts (Parts I, II, and III). Many persons have requested transcripts of my videos, and I will provide them here, especially the videos of my full, detailed account of what really happened during the now notorious Living or Napping While Black incident at Yale, which was actually a hate crime hoax, and the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police were complicit. 

Here is the Big Picture Account of What Happened at Yale During the Living or Napping While Black Incident (Part I) YouTube Channel Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDiezcAv-yw

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi.  My name is Sarah Braasch, and I am the PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale who was falsely accused of racism, and whose life was destroyed by the Yale Administration, the press, and a global internet moral outrage mob. 

Today I want to give you a brief, but comprehensive, big picture account of what happened at Yale this past spring during the Living or Napping While Black incident.  Even so, I’m probably going to break it up into a few different videos, because people seem to find shorter videos more digestible. 

I just want to let you know that the narrative which was propagated around the world, that I was trolling the halls of my Yale dorm at 2 am for random sleeping black people to harass by calling 911, either out of terror of blackness, or because I abhor black people, is a straight up, bald faced lie.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  

The true overarching narrative is that a severely traumatized middle aged woman with mental health disabilities, who chose to live in probably the most remote, isolated dorm room in the Hall of Graduate Studies, at the top of a tower, was being terrorized in her own home for months, with the full knowledge of the Yale Administration and the Yale campus police, who did absolutely nothing to help her or to make the attacks stop.  

I want to begin by setting the stage.  

My accusers were very happy to mislead the press and the public into thinking that I was trolling the huge, main common room on the ground floor of my Yale dorm at 2 am for random sleeping black people.  (First of all that room would have been locked and inaccessible at that time.)

I lived like a hermit in my dorm room at the top of a tower, as far away from anyone else as I could get, by arrangement with the Yale Housing Managers.  I rarely left my room.  I am recovering from egregious, lifelong, and repeated trauma, including the deaths of my three brothers, two of whom committed suicide.  I also suffer from mental health disabilities, including post traumatic stress disorder.  I wished only to be left in peace to work on my dissertation, which I consider to be my saving the world project.  

The notion that I would leave my room at 2 am to troll the halls of my Yale dorm for sleeping black people to harass is so ludicrous and asinine that it isn’t even worth considering. 

I was the one being targeted in my own remote, isolated home.  I was being harassed.  I was being stalked.  I was being attacked.  I was being sought out in my own remote, isolated dorm room.  I sought out no one.  I harassed no one.  I stalked no one.  I trolled no one.  

All I wanted was to be left in peace to complete my work and to recover as best I could from the severe trauma I had endured.  

Moreover, I was recovering from a traumatic event that had occurred during my first year of the PhD program at Yale, in the spring of 2015.  

I had been socially ousted from my department by most of my grad student peers, because I refused to allow them to violate the federal civil rights of a black man, the only POC job candidate for a tenure track assistant professor position in the Philosophy Department.  The graduate students wouldn’t look at me, except to glare at me.  They wouldn’t speak to me.  If I entered a room, they would get up and leave it.  As a result, my time in the Philosophy Department at Yale has been incredibly difficult and painful.  I turned to the mental health clinic at the student health center for help. I was on psychotropic medication for quite a while.  

I was made aware that the graduate students also went to the Administration to try to get me expelled. I believe that the only reason why I wasn’t expelled is because the faculty stood up for me en masse.  

But, I believe that the Administration has been salivating for another bite at the apple since that time. 

After everything that I endured, would I make the same choice, to stand up for someone’s federal civil rights and freedom of religious expression?  In a heartbeat.  I know I did the right thing.  I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself otherwise.  I can only live a life of integrity.  This is what it means to be a civil libertarian.  

Here is the Big Picture Account of What Happened at Yale During the Living or Napping While Black Incident (Part II) YouTube Channel Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ec-r02n99o

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi.  My name is Sarah Braasch, and I am the PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale who was falsely accused of racism, and whose life was destroyed by the Yale Administration, the press, and a global internet moral outrage mob. 

Today I want to continue my brief, but comprehensive, big picture account of what happened at Yale this past spring during the Living or Napping While Black incident.

In my previous video, I established that everything that occurred took place at the top of a tower, immediately outside of my isolated, remote dorm room, which I rarely left, as I lived like a hermit, because I was recovering from severe trauma.

The one other logistical point that I wish to make clear is that my dorm room was the only dorm room on the 12thfloor of the tower, and there was a single other room on that floor.  The entirety of the 12thfloor consists of a small landing outside of the elevator.  On one side of the landing is my dorm room, and on the other side of the landing is a small common room, which was always locked, but the keys of all residents open the door to the room.

Now, this room was technically referred to as a common room, but it was rarely used.  In the 2 years that I had lived in my dorm room there, it had been used maybe once a week for a party, usually on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday evening.  Almost invariably, these parties were loud and obnoxious, went late into the evening / early morning (in violation of housing regulations), and the participants left the common room trashed, with garbage strewn everywhere, including in the stairwell, and the nearest trash bins overflowing.  

But, the most important point is that in the almost 2 years that I lived there I never once complained about this behavior to Yale Housing.

Was it annoying? Yes.  Of course.  

But, I was really very happy in my dorm room.  I liked my living situation over all, so I put up with it.  

So, the notion that my attackers attempted to propagate in the news media that I felt any kind of ownership over the 12thfloor common room, or that I tried to restrict its use by other residents in any way, shape, or form, before February 24th, 2018, is a straight up, bald faced lie.  

In the almost 2 years that I lived there, I hardly ever entered the space.  I never used it for any reason.  

The one other point that I wish to make abundantly clear is that I never in the almost 2 years that I lived there saw anyone use that space for anything other than a raucous party. That is the only thing I ever saw. No one ever used that space to study. I never noticed anyone even entering that room for any other purpose than a party.  And, I believe that I would have been aware if it had been the case that residents were making use of that room for the purpose of studying.  It was always obvious to me, even inside my dorm room, if someone was entering or exiting the 12thfloor common room.

This part of the explanation ended up being more detailed than I had originally intended, but I think it’s important to be clear about the physical space.

The narrative that my attackers (and the Yale Administration) attempted to propagate thru the news media, that I was strolling thru a space that was something akin to a huge university library, where it would have been normal to see students dozing over their books and laptops, and perhaps on sofas, is entirely false.

As is the notion that I regarded this space as a white space, and I, a lifelong human and civil rights activist, was offended that a black person was making use of it, so I had decided to eject them for that reason.  This narrative is so preposterous on its face that it’s hard for me to believe that anyone regards it as plausible.

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi.  My name is Sarah Braasch, and I am the PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale who was falsely accused of racism, and whose life was destroyed by the Yale Administration, the press, and a global internet moral outrage mob. 

Today I want to continue my brief, but comprehensive, big picture account of what happened at Yale this past spring during the Living or Napping While Black incident.

I want to address the true overarching narrative of what happened.  

Much of what is clear to me now was not clear to me before May 8th.  

I had an unfortunate encounter with one of my accusers, the man who made a number of television appearances, on February 24th, 2018.  

It was because of what happened on February 24th, 2018, that this entire nightmare unfolded. 

I believe now that the Yale students involved in the February 24th, 2018 incident, and, in particular, my two accusers, the man and the woman who made numerous television appearances, waged a months long campaign to settle their delusional, jealous, and obsessive personal vendetta against me, culminating in the May 8thincident.  

Between February 24thand May 8th, 2018, I was being terrorized in my own home, my isolated dorm room, and both the Yale Administration and the Yale campus police were fully aware, and they did absolutely nothing to stop the harassment and stalking and attacks against me.  I will go into the particulars of the harassment in another video.  

And, while I will go into the particulars of the February 24th, 2018 incident in another video, I want to make it more than abundantly clear that the narrative that was propagated throughout the news media by my attackers and the Yale Administration that the February incident was an entirely unrelated, isolated incident from the May 8thincident is wholly false.  

My attackers and the Yale Administration propagated the false narrative in the news media that I had a history of trolling the halls of my Yale dorm for random black people to harass by calling the campus police.

I don’t know how many times I read in the press that I had a history of harassing random black Yale students.  

This may have been one of the false and defamatory narratives about me that was most infuriating, because it was such a gross and willful falsehood and misconstrual of the facts.  

Another point that I would like to make clear in this video is that on February 24th, 2018, I was terrorized in my own home.  I was verbally attacked in my own home.  The details of this occurrence are in the Yale campus police report that I filed with Officer Grace Schenkle on March 9th, 2018.  

The one other issue that I would like to address in this video is that the Yale Housing Managers investigated the February 24th, 2018 incident.  They met with all of the Yale students involved.  They interviewed everyone, including myself.  

When I met with the Yale Housing Managers, they told me that not only had I done absolutely nothing wrong on February 24th, 2018, but that I was the only Yale student involved who had done nothing wrong.  They also told me that they were very displeased with how the Hall of Graduate Studies Resident Coordinators had handled the situation, and that they would be reprimanded.  

The Yale Housing Managers told me not to give the incident another thought.  They told me to go back to my dissertation.  They told me that they were going to deal with all of the other students involved.  

I was satisfied with this resolution.  I had no desire to destroy anyone’s life.  

The only thing I wanted was to be left in peace to complete my saving the world project.

I thought that the issue was resolved and over at that point.  

And, then a week later I was informed by the Yale Housing Director that I was being accused of racism, including by a group of Yale Deans.  

But, I will get into that in the next video.

Below please find my Due Process and Social Media Moral Outrage Mobs and Viral Videos YouTube Channel Video and Transcript. Many persons have requested transcripts of my videos, and I will provide them here, especially the videos of my full, detailed account of what really happened during the now notorious Living or Napping While Black incident at Yale, which was actually a hate crime hoax, and the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police were complicit.

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi.  My name is Sarah Braasch, and I am the PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale who was falsely accused of racism, and whose life was destroyed by the Yale Administration, the press, and a global internet moral outrage mob. 

Today I want to talk about why anyone in her right mind would think that the appropriate way for our society to settle disputes, either civil or criminal, would be via roving online mobs of moral outrage warriors, who respond to the least provocation or mere accusation, by destroying private citizen strangers’ lives, and by driving them to suicide and inciting their murders, with no due process whatsoever. 

Pretty much everything you’ve heard and read about me is a straight up, bald faced lie, but let’s imagine for a moment that it isn’t.  Let’s imagine that what you’ve been told so far about me is true.  Let’s imagine that I came upon a random sleeping black person in the middle of the night in my Yale dormitory’s common room, and I immediately dialed 911, because this occurrence seemed suspicious to me.  That is not at all what happened, but let’s just imagine for a moment that it is what occurred.

Who in her right mind thinks that the appropriate response is to destroy my life, livelihood, and reputation, as well as incite my murder and drive me to suicide, without any opportunity for me to defend myself or to tell my side of the story, i.e., with no due process whatsoever?  That is sheer insanity, utter insanity.  

Both the Left and the Right have come to realize that we simply cannot make it impossible for people to create lives for themselves post incarceration.  Criminal justice reform was the one truly bipartisan effort.  But, we think that it’s ok for roving online mobs of moral outrage warriors to destroy people’s lives for non criminal offenses like smirking or wearing a MAGA hat or calling the campus police?

The typical retort is that this behavior is fine, because due process is only required during criminal proceedings instituted by the government.  

But, due process is also a requirement in civil courts.  And, our civil courts exist, so that people will feel confident about interacting with one another in the public space, making contracts, engaging in business, and establishing social relationships.  And, they feel confident, because they know that they can be made whole if they are harmed. And, this is not harmed in a way that is criminal.  There is no question of criminal liability.  But, there is still a responsibility to compensate someone for whatever damages they have suffered.  

The roving online moral outrage mobs obviate not only the criminal courts, but the civil courts as well. Besides the inevitable death threats and threats of violence, including sexual violence, they behave as if any defamation tort laws don’t apply to them, because it is currently difficult to hold them accountable, as our legal system has yet to catch up to social media technology.  This is doing profound damage to our society, to our legal system, and to our democracy. 

If people are too terrified to enter the public sphere and to engage in normal economic and social discourse and interactions and relationships, because they know that their entire lives can be destroyed on a whim, by a mere accusation, or by a couple of minutes of illegally recorded and edited video, then they will simply stop entering the public sphere.  They will stop engaging in normal economic and social discourse and interactions and relationships.  But, that will lead to the degradation and eventual collapse of our society.

Not to mention what people being too terrified to engage in political discourse will do to our democracy. 

If every time you speak political speech, and make a political statement, you risk having your life destroyed with no recourse to the civil courts and no way to be compensated and made whole, then people will stop participating in the political process. 

This is what the moral outrage warriors want.  They want to silence any opposition.  They want to do away with the democratic political process and free speech and civil liberties.  They want to implement their brand of ideological fascism.

Introductory YouTube Channel Video and Transcript — Living or Napping While Black Incident at Yale

Below please find my introductory YouTube Channel Video and Transcript. Many persons have requested transcripts of my videos, and I will provide them here, especially the videos of my full, detailed account of what really happened during the now notorious Living or Napping While Black incident at Yale, which was actually a hate crime hoax, and the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police were complicit.

Here is the YouTube Channel Introductory Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ytjVO3tRhQ

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi.  My name is Sarah Braasch.  If you are watching this, you probably already know who I am.  I am the PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale who was falsely accused of racism, and whose life was destroyed by the Yale Administration, the press, and a global internet rage mob.

I still literally go into shock sometimes when I think about what has happened to me.  It is surreal.  I truly am a lifelong human and civil rights activist.  I never could have imagined in a million years, not in my worst nightmares, that something like this could have happened to me.  If my life can be destroyed by a false accusation of racism, anyone’s life can be.  

You are going to hear something on this channel you have not heard much of yet, the truth.  The ONLY reason I hadn’t told my story is because I knew that my story would be weaponized against the black social justice movement, including the Living While Black movement.  But, I have no choice.  I have to tell my story, so that I can at least try to save my life.  

Pretty much everything you’ve heard and read about me is a straight up, bald faced lie.  Yale has always known that I am entirely innocent. 

Aside from telling the truth about what actually happened, I am also hoping to monetize these videos, so that I can rebuild my devastated life, and so that I can take all appropriate legal action against those who have defamed me.  For that purpose, I have included a paypal me link, if you are inclined to support both this channel and my journey, as I rebuild my life and seek justice.  

There is much that I wish to share on this channel.  I know that people have expressed a great deal of interest in my idiosyncratic life story, including growing up in the Jehovah’s Witnesses cult, and I am happy to share my story and my saving the world project.  

I also know that people are intrigued by my philosophical, legal, and political positions.  I am very happy to do videos on these topics, including what were my anti religion views and my views on morality, hate speech, free speech, hate crime legislation, and civil libertarianism.  I will also discuss how my views have been altered, in some cases significantly, by the life changing nightmare I have endured. 

If you like call out culture, then you came to the right place.  I have been betrayed by pretty much everyone, including the secular humanist community, who, along with the Left, more or less tried to kill me for being a civil libertarian and waged a smear campaign against me, twisting everything I had ever typed online into something ugly.  

I will discuss whether or not I am still anti religion, whether I am still a Democrat and a proud social justice warrior, and whether I am still anti-hijab, niqab, and burqa.  I will discuss whether or not I think white women can or should still call the police, or if they risk having their lives destroyed if they do so, as my life was destroyed.  We will talk about whether I think this was an instance of reverse racism, how I feel about the press, what I think about intersectional feminism, and what I think about the secular humanist community abandoning Enlightenment values and civil liberties.  

There is much to discuss, but it won’t all be doom and gloom.  I am hoping to share my journey of recovery with all of you as well.  I am still healing, and I hope that making and sharing these videos will be cathartic.  

So, if you are interested, you are very welcome.  Please feel free to subscribe, like, comment, and share my videos, so that I can monetize them, if you would like to support me.  Thank you so much for spending a few minutes with me.  

If you wish to support me, as I seek justice, it would mean the world to me. Here are my PayPalMe and GoFundMe links.

A Hate Crime Hoax at Yale

My name is Sarah Braasch. I am the PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale who was involved in the now notorious Living or Napping While Black incident during the spring of this past year. In truth, I am the victim of a hate crime hoax, and the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police were both complicit. I am a middle aged, severely traumatized woman with mental health disabilities who was being terrorized in her isolated dorm room for months, while the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police stood by and did nothing, with full knowledge of the situation. In fact, Yale was complicit in my being terrorized for months, and I have reason to believe that the Yale Administration was illegally feeding my personal information, including my name and my mental health history, to my attackers.

My life was destroyed by a false accusation of racism, the Yale Administration, the Yale Police, the press, pundits, academics, late night comics and talk show hosts, and all of the Moral Outrage Warriors and Far Left Ideological Fascists and Cultists and intersectional feminists and the Moral Outrage Industry, including a global internet rage mob. I was wrongfully subjected to a global murderous defamation campaign. I received thousands upon thousands of death threats and threats of violence, including sexual violence. I had to go into hiding for near a year. I was suicidal. For months, I could barely eat or sleep. I would go into literal physical shock on the hour, every hour, convulsing with the chills. It was hard to even begin to process what had been done to me. I had been wrongfully vilified, on a global scale, as a genocidal villain on the order of Pol Pot.

Nothing that I had wished for my life is possible any longer. My academic and legal and human and civil rights careers are over. I have been banned from Yale’s campus by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Dean Lynn Cooley, with no due process whatsoever. I have also been banned from teaching at Yale by Dean Cooley. My dearest friends in the whole world paid $10k for an attorney to stop Yale from expelling me. Quite simply, the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police destroyed my life, my livelihood, my reputation, my career, my good name, and almost got me killed by driving me to suicide and inciting my murder. None of this would have happened if Yale had simply told the truth after the May 8th incident. Or, if the Yale Administration didn’t want to accuse a POC of wrongdoing, they could have simply released the Yale Police body camera footage from May 8th, which exonerates me and exposes Yale’s malfeasance.

In truth, I am a lifelong human and civil rights licensed attorney activist who had devoted her life to fighting against oppression in all of its many forms, including racism. I considered myself a proud Social Justice Warrior (SJW), although, in truth, I was trying to re-appropriate the term, in order to make it mean what it is supposed to mean, i.e., civil liberties for one and all. I am completing my dissertation project for my PhD, which I have been working on for years now, and which I consider to be my saving the world project. It is an analysis of how to undermine the oppression inherent to our social institutions. I work on the issues of police brutality and implicit bias. I was socially ousted from my department at Yale by most of my graduate student peers, because I stood up for the federal civil rights of a black man, our only POC job candidate. I fought for a black man to gain access to Yale. I chose to use my JD by accepting a Human Rights Fellowship from my law school (Fordham Law) and moving to France to work with Ni Putes Ni Soumises. I spent days sitting with African women immigrants and their children, in government offices, to make sure that they would not be discriminated against during the visa application process. No one who has ever known me has ever heard or seen me say or do anything racist ever, because I would never engage in racist behavior. It is antithetical to everything that I am.

I will be using this blog to tell the truth about what really happened at Yale during the Living or Napping While Black incident. I will also be using it to raise legal funds and funds to help me rebuild my devastated life. I want to take my readers with me on my journey of recovery, as I heal and attempt to save my life and career. I also want to recruit all reasonable, goodhearted people across the political spectrum to be part of a community of persons committed to civil liberties for one and all, and due process, and free speech, including religious expression, and committed to save our secular, liberal, constitutional democratic republic. I want to do something about the Far Left Ideological Fascism Cultists and Intersectional Feminists who have usurped our college campuses and who work to oust and destroy the lives of any apostates who dare to express ideas contrary to their orthodoxy. If my life can be destroyed by a false accusation of racism, anyone’s life can be.

I am a member of the tribe of cancelleds now, and I want to tell my story, to light the path for those who follow. I almost lost my way and my life. I don’t want anyone else to lose theirs.
