Below please find my YouTube Channel Video Script for the video: Joy Reid and Chris Hayes of MSNBC Tried to Get Me Killed by Lying About Me for Money.
On May 29th, 2018, while I was in hiding to save my own life, after I had to flee Yale’s campus while being taunted by a mob, and while I was receiving thousands upon thousands of death threats and threats of violence, including sexual violence, while I was curled up in the fetal position in a state of literal physical shock, convulsing with the chills, terrified to leave my room, knowing that my life and career had been wrongfully destroyed, MSNBC aired a Town Hall called “Everyday Racism in America” during which Joy Reid and Chris Hayes made grossly false and defamatory statements about me and what happened during the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale that can only be construed as an attempt to destroy my life and career as a human and civil rights licensed attorney activist and to bring about the death of an innocent civil rights activist and older disabled woman (my death) by either driving me to suicide or inciting my murder.
Joy Reid and Chris Hayes concocted a grotesque fairy tale about what occurred, and what I had done, and what my motivations were, and who I am.
I was shocked that they included a portion of the illegal video of me from May 8th, 2018, the video in which my attacker, Lolade Siyonbola, makes clear that she was targeting me because of my mental health disability. But, they failed to include the portions where my attacker, Lolade Siyonbola, makes clear that she was targeting me because of my mental health disability, and that Yale had been illegally feeding her my personal information, including my name and mental health history, and that she illegally distributed this illegal video of me to publicly shame me for my mental health disability. So, Joy Reid and Chris Hayes and MSNBC were knowingly participating in an illegal campaign to shame an older, disabled woman for her mental health disability.
Chris Hayes begins by telling a straight up bald faced lie and trying to make it seem like I just happened to come across a random sleeping black person in the huge, ground floor common room of my Yale dorm in the middle of the night, instead of what actually happened, which was that the person who had been terrorizing me that evening and for months in my isolated dorm room was camped out immediately outside of my isolated dorm room, in the small, little used room next door, the only other room on that floor, at the top of a tower.
Chris Hayes described the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax, of which I was the victim, as a trauma that I inflicted on my attacker, and he said that I othered her.
I want to let Chris Hayes know that I was the person who was being terrorized in my isolated dorm room that evening and for months. I want to let Chris Hayes know that I was the person who was being targeted for my sex, disability, age, and, yes, race. I was the person who was traumatized. I was the person who was being othered. I was the person being policed. I was the person being excluded from her own campus, from her own home.
Chris Hayes actually asked my attacker what it was like to spend time in the common room of my Yale dorm after the video had gone viral, meaning the huge, ground floor common room of my Yale dorm. This is a preposterous and gross and willful mischaracterization of the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale.
Joy Reid asked my attacker, Lolade Siyonbola, if she had seen me on campus since May 8th, 2018, and what had occurred if she had. Well, Joy Reid, she wouldn’t have seen me on campus, because I had to immediately go into hiding for my personal safety. I had to move into a part of the dorm that was under construction, where I wouldn’t be attacked, especially after pundits like Ijeoma Oluo called for me to be harassed and stalked in my own home, my isolated dorm room. I had to flee Yale’s campus for my personal safety, and I feared for my life while I was being taunted by a mob, while I was waiting, desperately, for my uber.
While listening to this video, this was the first time that I heard my attacker lie and say that one of my other attackers, Jean Louis Reneson, kept running into me after February 24th, 2018, which is a straight up, bald faced lie. I never saw him again. Let me repeat that. I never saw him again. She goes on to say that he was re-traumatized each time he saw me, and that every black student on Yale’s campus would be re-traumatized by seeing me on campus. This is a preposterous, disgusting, straight-up, bald-faced lie almost beyond belief.
I thought it was very telling when my attacker, Lolade Siyonbola, said that she was supposed to leave that next day for Nigeria. I knew and had made clear to the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police that the harassment and stalking and attacks against me were gaining in frequency and intensity, and I believed that this was because the end of the academic year was fast approaching and my attackers were becoming desperate to wreak their vengeance upon me for their delusional, jealous, and obsessive personal vendetta against me.
On May 7th, I was up in the middle of the night, because I was trying desperately to pack up my belongings, clean my room, and flee my home, because I was terrified of being attacked. I had made arrangements to stay with friends in NYC. I had also been moving items into a storage unit in New Haven.
Joy Reid said that it feels like we’re back in the fight over whether black people are going to have access to public spaces. I want to let Joy Reid know that one of the key points of my legal and human and civil rights advocacy has been the desegregation of the public space. I want her to know that that’s why I chose to go work as a Human Rights Fellow at Ni Putes Ni Soumises in France, a women’s rights organization comprised primarily of women from the predominantly Muslim immigrant communities surrounding the major cities of France, for whom desegregation of the public space is a pillar of their movement. I want to ask Joy Reid why I didn’t have the right to feel safe and to be free from harassment, stalking, and attacks in my own home, my isolated dorm room, and as I walked across campus?
Of course, the entire panel and its assorted guests, a panel on everyday racism in America, in which I was included as an example of a racist, made grossly false and defamatory statement after statement about how what I did was racist, and how I was suspicious of my attacker, because of the color of her skin, and how I was trying to weaponize the police against black and brown people, and how I was trying to exclude black and brown people from my white space, and how I thought I had the authority to police my white space. It was, frankly, grotesque. It was a grotesque fairy tale concocted to endanger my life and destroy my lifelong career as an innocent human and civil rights licensed attorney activist.
Tim Wise, the author of White Like Me: Reflections on Race From a Privileged Son, said that I called the Yale campus police on my attacker, Lolade Siyonbola, with the knowledge of Tamir Rice’s death at the hands of the police, and he made the following, absolutely obscene statement about what I was thinking during the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale:
“My discomfort with you right now is worth more than the potential that your life could be snuffed in ten minutes. Until that stops, nothing is going to change.”
I am literally in a state of shock right now, listening to this grotesque lie about me, about who I am, about what happened during the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale, about what I did, and about what my motivations were.
When Tim Wise says something like this about me on MSNBC, this can only be construed as an attempt to endanger my life and destroy my career. He is trying to get me killed by saying that I was trying to kill a black person by weaponizing the police, which is the most grotesque and disgusting lie imaginable.
Then, Chris Hayes concocted a grotesque fairy tale immediately thereafter about what happened during the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale.
Chris Hayes explicitly states that I called 911, which is a bald faced lie.
Chris Hayes explicitly states that I never tried to speak to my attacker, Lolade Siyonbola, before calling the Yale campus police, which is a bald faced lie.
Chris Hayes explicitly states that I was so uncomfortable with my attacker, because of the color of her skin, which is why I didn’t even bother to try to speak to her before dialing 911, which is a straight up, bald faced lie.
Joy Reid explicitly states that what I did was a nuisance call, and that there should be legal repercussions for what I did.
Then the panel discussed how much of this is the result of gentrification and white people moving into black communities.
I just want to let Joy Reid and Chris Hayes and Tim Wise and MSNBC know that I grew up among black and brown people in a racially integrated religious cult, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the notion that I would regard a black or brown person as suspicious, because of the color of their skin is so ludicrous and asinine that it is too preposterous to be considered, except as an indication of how stupid someone is.
The panel also spoke about how all of these racist 911 callers who are trying to get black and brown people killed by weaponizing the police are motivated by Trump and Trump’s rhetoric, and how Trump unleashed our racism and empowered us to be racist.
These are all straight up, bald faced lies meant to destroy my life and career as a lifelong and innocent human and civil rights licensed attorney activist and to bring about my death by either driving me to suicide or inciting my murder.
I have a message for Joy Reid and Chris Hayes and Tim Wise and MSNBC:
I hope selling your souls was worth it. You are evil. You are evil. You need to ask God for forgiveness.
You destroyed the Living While Black movement. It is because of charlatans and frauds like you, who tell lies and broadcast lies to the world for moral outrage industry profit and gain, no matter how many innocent lives you destroy and no matter how many innocent people you get killed, that the Living While Black movement no longer exists.
You are the racists. You are the bigots. You are the ones who participated in the illegal campaign to publicly shame an older, poor, disabled woman for her mental health disability.
You are the ones who turned the Living While Black movement into the Great Racist Scare of 2018. You are the ones who turned the Living While Black movement into a blood sport of trying to get older, poor, white women with obvious or seeming mental health disabilities killed for moral outrage industry profit and gain.
You chose them for your victims, because you thought that they were too weak and too poor and too disabled to fight back. Well, I want to let you know that I’m going to fight back. I’m not going to let you get away with your bigotry and your mercenary and venal wrongdoing.
Shame on you. Shame. I don’t know how you live with yourselves.
