I Don’t Know What Else To Do, And I Don’t Know If It’s Worth It To Try

So, I’ve spent my whole life dedicated to fighting oppression in all of its many forms. I’ve been a human and civil rights activist and licensed attorney my whole life. I decided to pursue a PhD in the Philosophical Foundations of Law, so that I could complete my Saving the World Project and, well, save the world.

And, I’ve given up all hope. I now think that human beings are beyond saving, and it’s not worth it to try. I’ll probably be dead soon, which will make all of my many enemies happy. But, honestly, who cares, right? Because humanity is on a path to destruction anyway. It is beyond saving. It is beyond all redemption. I now just think that all human beings are evil demons who are perfectly happy to get an innocent human rights activist killed for a few bucks.

I just want this hellish 3 year nightmare to end. I just want the abuse to stop. I am 1 person who has already endured and barely survived myriad lifetimes worth of nightmares.

I just want the abuse to stop. I just want to be with my brothers. I just want peace.

My Email to Rutgers University President Jonathan Holloway, Asking Him to Please Help Me Save My Life

This is my email to Rutgers University President Jonathan Holloway, asking him to please help me save my life. I kept it short and sweet. Jonathan knows me. We worked together at Yale on the anti-racism conference to honor Joyce Mitchell Cook, the first African American woman in the US to get a PhD in Philosophy, which she obtained at Yale. I am asking him to ask Rutgers Professor Taja-Nia Henderson to please retract her American University Law Review article about me that amounts to a death threat against me and puts my life in the gravest danger.

Dear President Holloway,

First, I would like to tell you how thrilled I am for you that you are the first Black President of Rutgers. I have always said so.

I know that you know that I am the entirely innocent victim of the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale.

I know that you know that I am an innocent anti-racism Yale grad student who would never in a million years engage in racism.

I am asking you to please ask Professor Taja-Nia Henderson to retract her American University Law Review article that amounts to a death threat against me and puts my life in the gravest danger.

I am trying desperately to save my life and my lifelong human and civil rights academic and legal careers.

Please help me.

All my best,

The Quick Cliff Notes Version of What Happened to Me During the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale

My tale at Yale is long and convoluted.  It really is insane what happened to me.

In a nutshell:  I stood up for the Fed Civil Rights of an Evangelical Black man on Yale’s campus in my first year in the philosophy PhD Program at Yale, in Spring 2015, and everything went downhill from there.  

I was initially ostracized by all of the other philosophy grad students who would literally get up and walk out of a room, if I walked into it.  It devastated me to the point that I sought mental health treatment while at Yale, a point of which much was made by the Administration and my tormentors during the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale.

I became a target of the Yale Admin at this time, because the philosophy grad students were not content to have made me a social pariah within the philosophy department, and they went to the Yale Administration to have me disciplined and even expelled for being an unWoke civil libertarian and Free Speech advocate who opposes hate crime legislation as grossly unconstitutional.  I was widely known and despised across Yale’s campus as an unWoke anti-LGBTQ bigot.  I experienced multiple incidents of harassment in student housing related to my apostate status.

This is why, when Lolade Siyonbola and Jean Louis Reneson went to the Yale Administration after the non-event on February 24th, 2018, during which I was the only person who was harassed, and falsely accused me of having perpetrated a racist hate crime comparable to a lynching, the Yale Administration were thrilled to embrace this obviously false accusation.  In truth, I worked on the issues of implicit bias and police brutality with the Justice Collaboratory at Yale Law School.

The Yale Administration wanted me to participate in a Maoist struggle session, a town hall, at which I was supposed to profess my racism and help teach the other members of the Yale community how not to be racist like me.  I told them to go jump in a lake.  I threatened legal action if they continued to harass me.  And, I demanded retractions of all of the false statements about me.  

So, this is when the Yale Administration decided to participate in the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale.  They wanted me expelled.  They wanted me dead.  I now believe that the Yale Admin was actually instructing Lolade Siyonbola and Jean Louis Reneson on what to do.  I was stalked across campus and terrorized in my isolated Yale dorm room for months.  I begged the Yale Admin and Yale Campus Police Chief Ronnell Higgins to stop the harassment.  They repeatedly assured me that I could call the campus police at any time for any reason whatsoever, even if I was unsure if such a call was necessary.

When Lolade Siyonbola filmed me on May 8th, 2018, I didn’t even know I was being filmed.  I now know that this was a last ditch effort before flying home to Nigeria the next day to wreak her vengeance upon me for her delusional, obsessive personal vendetta against me.  

The Yale Admin led the subsequent global vilification and defamation campaign against me, including in the Fake News Press, in an effort to get me killed and destroy my life and career.  My life has been destroyed.  I am still deluged by death and rape threats.  I am still more or less in hiding.  My lifelong human and civil rights academic and legal careers are over.  I am defamed to this day, on an almost daily basis, as a genocidal villain who tries to lynch Black students at Yale via the Yale Campus Police.

I am pursuing legal action against Yale and the CT FOI Commission to secure the Yale Police body camera footage from May 8th, 2018, to release it to the public.  We have an appeal in the courts.  
I did get press initially when I appealed to the CT FOI Commission, but this was only because the mainstream press thought that they could generate more moral outrage industry money by vilifying me all over again.  No one is covering my current appeal.

I have a FERPA request, which Yale said that they would honor, but I have yet to receive anything, and I no longer have hope that this is any kind of an indication that the Yale Corporation has come to their senses.

I have a blog, where I have released a ton of pdf’s of documents and emails.  I have a YouTube channel that hasn’t taken off as I would have liked, but it has definitely helped me get the truth out there, and I am very active on Twitter.  I lost my Twitter account at the end of 2019, but I fought tooth and nail to get it back, and I finally did, obviously.

That’s my story in a nutshell.  Like I said, it’s pretty insane.  Class also played a huge role in what happened to me at Yale.  I was also despised for being a crazy, old poor white trash interloper who dared to be unWoke and who was very successful.

I am hoping to appear on another podcast this coming weekend.  

At this point, I think everyone is pretending that I don’t exist, so that they won’t be held accountable for what they did to me.

I just said today that I think I’m constitutionally incapable of walking away until I achieve some semblance of Justice, not just for me, but for all of the cancelled.

I will not rest until we have restored Due Process and Equal Protection at Yale and Smith College and on campuses across the US and everywhere.

My Email to Vice President of Princeton, Hilary Parker, Beseeching Her to Help Me Save My Life and Human Rights Career

The following is my email to Vice President of Princeton, Hilary Parker, asking her to help me save my life and human rights career, asking her to please ask Princeton Professor Imani Perry to tell the truth and ask for a retraction and apology from UC Hastings Law School, because of her protege’s disgusting article about me, T. Anansi Wilson, in the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly, a collection of disgusting lies about me meant to get me killed and drive me to suicide as an act of vengeance. Of course, Professor Perry knows me, and knows that I am an entirely innocent anti-racism Yale graduate student. She worked with me at Yale on an anti-racism conference, along with my advisor, Jason Stanley.

Dear Vice President Parker,

I hope this email finds you well.  

Unfortunately, for my part, I have been living in a hellish nightmare for the past two and a half years.  I beseech you for your assistance.

I was recently grossly defamed in the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly by T. Anansi Wilson, a protege of Professor Imani Perry of Princeton.  I believe that this was an act of vengeance, meant to get me killed and drive me to suicide.

I assure you that I am an entirely innocent anti-racism Yale grad student, and this was completely known to Professor Wilson’s advisor, Professor Imani Perry of Princeton, with whom I had worked at Yale, on an anti-racism conference, the Ideology Conference, along with my advisor at Yale, Jason Stanley.

My life has been destroyed.  My lifelong human and civil rights academic and legal careers have been destroyed.  All I want is for the defamation to stop.  I can’t take any more abuse.  I have nearly killed myself countless times during the past two and a half years.  I am still in hiding.  I am still deluged by death and rape threats.  I am still defamed as a genocidal villain who lynches Black students at Yale via the Yale Campus Police on a near daily basis.

I beg of you, please help me.  I work at a Legal Aid Center.  I help people.  That’s what I do now.  I know that my dream of a life in academia has been stolen from me.  I just want to be left in peace.

The defamation in T. Anansi Wilson’s article is actionable.  I ask for a retraction and apology.  I ask Professor Imani Perry, who could not be more aware that I am an entirely innocent anti-racism Yale grad student, to ask for a retraction and apology.  

Please help me save my life.  I beg this of you.  I am an entirely innocent person whose life has been decimated.  All I ever wanted to do with my life is help people and make the world a better place. 

Now, I just want to live.  

Thank you so much for your kind assistance in this matter.

Best regards,

My Email to Chancellor and Dean David Faigman of the UC Hastings Law School, Beseeching Him to Help Me Save My Life and Human Rights Career

The following is my email to UC Hasting Law School Chancellor and Dean, David Faigman. I ask for a retraction and apology of Adjunct Professor T. Anansi Wilson’s disgusting and despicable Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly article about me, which can only be construed as a death threat against me, as an act of revenge, and an attempt to drive me to suicide, an innocent anti-racism Yale grad student:

Yale is Paying Dr. Ibram Kendi to Help Them Try to Get Me Killed as Part of Their Farcical Belonging at Yale Initiative Otherwise Known as “Get Sarah Braasch Killed for Money” Initiative

As reported in Yale Daily News, the lying bigot and fraud, Yale VP of Student Life Kimberly Goff-Crews, who was fully complicit in the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale, has begun a new component of Yale’s farcical Belonging at Yale Initiative. In truth, Yale’s bogus Belonging at Yale Initiative should be renamed to a more appropriate moniker, perhaps the “Get Sarah Braasch Killed for Money” Initiative. She has kicked off an anti-racism speaker series at Yale, because, much to her chagrin, I’m not dead yet.

Just in case anyone is new to my plight, I am the purported villain of the Living or Napping While Black Incident at Yale, but, in truth, I am the entirely innocent victim of the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale. I am an anti-racism Yale graduate student and a lifelong human and civil rights activist and licensed attorney. The Hate Crime Hoax at Yale was perpetrated by a well-documented anti-Semitic and anti-white racist, Lolade Siyonbola, who is a well known proponent of Nick Cannon’s Melanin and Original DNA Conspiracy Theories. All of these facts were perfectly well known to the Yale Administration at the time that they decided to participate in the Hate Crime Hoax. The Yale Admin had been targeting me for expulsion for years for being a civil libertarian and for daring to express unWoke thoughts, including standing up for the Federal Civil Rights of an Evangelical Black man at Yale. This is why they embraced the patently false accusation, by Siyonbola and Jean Louis Reneson, that I had perpetrated a racist hate crime comparable to a lynching on February 24th, 2018. I was terrorized for months in my isolated Yale dorm room, culminating in the May 8th, 2018 event, when I called the non-emergency helpline of the Yale Campus Police, as I had been repeatedly instructed to do by Yale Provost Stephanie Spangler and Yale Campus Police Chief Ronnell Higgins, for any reason whatsoever.

I accidentally came upon Siyonbola, whom I had never seen before, entirely obscured by a blanket, and I was alarmed, because I had been harassed all evening. She subsequently made statements to me that made it clear to me that she was very likely one of the persons who had been harassing me all evening and for months. I had no idea that Siyonbola was recording me on her iPhone to finally secure her revenge against me by embarking on a global vilification and defamation campaign against me, led by the Yale Admin, with the assistance of the Fake News Press and entire Moral Outrage Industry. I am still in hiding. I almost died. My lifelong human and civil rights career was destroyed. And, Yale is not done trying to get me killed yet.

I recently learned, in the same aforementioned Yale Daily News article, that Dr. Ibram Kendi is being paid to be part of Yale’s farcical Belonging at Yale Initiative Speaker Series. Ibram Kendi is the Woke Intersectional Feminist / Critical Race Theorist and author of the patently ridiculous How to be an Anti-Racist book. He has been championed by Oprah Winfrey and Jack Dorsey. In truth, he is himself an egregious anti-white racist and lying bigot and fraud. I’m sure that Yale is paying him an obscene sum of money to help them try to get me killed by defaming me as a genocial villain who lynches Black students at Yale via the Campus Police. There is no way, especially given his relationship with Oprah Winfrey, that Ibram Kendi does not know that I am an entirely innocent and actual anti-racism Yale grad student and victim of the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale.

I ask Dr. Ibram Kendi to donate whatever Yale is paying him to help them try to get me killed to my Legal Fund (links below), so that I can sue Yale for almost getting me killed, destroying my human rights academic and legal careers, and for their gross violations of my Federal Civil Rights.

Everyone knows at this point that the entire Living While Black movement is a Race Hoax perpetrated by the Woke Political Left, including the Democrats, the Fake News Press, and the entire Moral Outrage Industry, including the ACLU, to justify fascist and grossly unconstitutional legislation in the form of CAREN Acts. CAREN Acts criminalize all unWoke thoughts and speech not only as hate crimes, but as acts of terrorism. The Woke Political Left exploited the police killings of Black men to revive the Living While Black Race Hoax to justify dismantling Civil Rights legislation, bringing back Jim Crow and racial segregation in the public spaces, and undermining Due Process and Equal Protection, especially for white women who have been demonized to the point where blue check mark public figures on Twitter feel comfortable more or less tweeting that it’s ok to kill white women now for being white women.

A Legal Analysis of the Awesome Appeal by Randazza Legal Group to the CT Superior Court to get the Yale Campus Police Body Camera Footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale

This is a legal analysis of the terrific appeal of the CT FOI Commission’s travesty of justice decision denying the public access to the Yale Campus Police body camera footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale. It’s awesome. My attorneys, Jay Wolman and Marc Randazza of the Randazza Legal Group, did a fantastic job.

Here it is:

https://app.luminpdf.com/viewer/5f96a9a67a9cb600113cbdbc

TWO MAIN TAKE AWAYS:

  1. The Yale Campus Police doesn’t get to make arbitrary and capricious decisions about who does and does not get to have access to Yale Campus Police body camera footage. This is a gross violation of Equal Protection.

2. The Yale Campus Police doesn’t get to say magic words and wave a wand and pronounce that someone called them to report a crime when they clearly did no such thing. This means that the Yale Campus Police Department can always deny the public access to police body camera footage that they should rightly have, to shield themselves from accountability.

Below are the facts established in the appeal by my attorneys, Randazza Legal Group:

  1. First, the brief does a good job of establishing the fact that I’m a lifelong and well-documented human and civil rights activist and licensed attorney.

2. The brief does an excellent job of establishing the fact that I was subjected to a campaign of harassment in my isolated Yale dorm room on the 12th floor of the tower of the Hall of Graduate Studies, following the February 24th, 2018 incident, during which I did absolutely nothing wrong, a fact which was established by the Yale Housing Managers.

3. The brief does an excellent job of establishing the fact that the Yale Administration and Yale Campus Police, including Chief Ronnell Higgins, were fully aware that I was being subjected to a campaign of harassment in my isolated Yale dorm room, following the February 24th, 2018 incident, and that the Resident Coordinators of the Hall of Graduate Studies were involved in the harassment.

4. The brief does an excellent job of establishing the fact that the Yale Administration and Yale Campus Police, including Chief Ronnell Higgins, repeatedly told, not only myself, but also the entire Yale community, that they should feel absolutely free to call the Yale Campus Police at any time, for any reason, even if we were unsure that their assistance was necessary. I was explicitly told by Yale Campus Police Officer Grace Schenkle on March 9th, 2018, that the Yale Campus Police ALWAYS prefers to check out any situation, just to make sure that everything is ok.

5. The brief does an excellent job of making clear that I never knew the identities of my harassers, that the Yale Administration and Yale Campus Police knew that I did not know the identities of my harassers, and that I had never seen Lolade Siyonbola before May 8th, 2018, and did not know her name or if she was even a Yale affiliate or Hall of Graduate Studies resident.

6. The brief does an excellent job of making clear that both Jean Louis Reneson and Lolade Siyonbola were in violation of Yale housing regulations on February 24th, 2018, and May 8th, 2018, respectively.

7. The brief does an excellent job of making clear that I did not call the non-emergency helpline of the Yale Campus Police, as instructed, on May 8th, 2018, until Lolade Siyonbola made statements to me that made it clear to me that she was very likely one of the persons who had been harassing me all evening and even for months.

8. The brief does an excellent job of making clear that I never accused Siyonbola of trespassing or any other criminal activity. In point of fact, I let the Yale Campus Police Officer who responded to my call know that, even if the person whom I accidentally encountered camped out in the 12th floor common was a Yale graduate student and resident of the Hall of Graduate Studies, it is a violation of Yale Housing Regulations for them to be using the 12th floor common room as a sleeping accommodation, and that they needed to return to their dorm room.

9. The brief does an excellent job of making clear that I was simply calling the non-emergency helpline of the Yale Campus Police, exactly as I had been repeatedly instructed to do by the Yale Administration and Yale Campus Police, including Chief Ronnell Higgins, for assistance, to prevent future harassment. And, the harassment was not being reported as criminal activity.

10. The brief does an excellent job of making clear that I pleaded with the Yale Campus Police Officers to listen to me, that I pleaded with them to please speak with Yale Graduate School Dean Lynn Cooley, who was fully aware that I had been enduring a campaign of harassment in my isolated Yale dorm room, and that I pleased with them to please read Yale Campus Police Officer Grace Schenkle’s police reports detailing the campaign of harassment that I had been enduring.

11. The brief does an excellent job of making clear that I had no idea that I was being filmed by Lolade Siyonbola. I was shocked to discover that the recording of me was being propagated around the world to vilify and destroy me.

12. The brief does an excellent job of making clear that I have never had an opportunity to tell the truth about the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale, and that I continue to be defamed as a genocidal villain who lynches Black students at Yale via the Yale Campus Police to this day, since May 8th, 2018.

13. Yale is claiming the exemption that the Yale Campus Police body camera footage contains uncorroborated criminal allegations.

14. I appealed to the CT FOI Commission, which pronounced a final decision on September 9th, 2020, denying the public access to the Yale Campus Police Body Camera Footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale on May 8th, 2018.

Below is my analysis of the legal analysis from the appeal by my attorneys, Randazza Legal Group:

  1. The brief makes clear that the CT FOI Commission erred in concluding that the Yale Campus Police dispatched officers to the Hall of Graduate Studies on May 8th, 2018, to conduct a criminal investigation into the alleged criminal activities of trespassing and harassment.

a. The CT FOI Commission made this determination based solely on the testimony of Yale Campus Police Chief Ronnell Higgins who was not present on May 8th, 2018, and who had nothing to do with the events of May 8th, 2018, and who perjured himself before the CT FOI Commission.

b. I offered my own testimony before the CT FOI Commission as to the non-criminal nature of my call to the non-emergency helpline of the Yale Campus Police on May 8th, 2018. I called them to help me in their capacity as peace officers.

c. The Yale Campus Police body camera footage from May 8th, 2018 will make this point clear, because the Yale Campus Police Officers threaten me on the footage, precisely because they said that I had called them improperly for a NON-CRIMINAL matter.

The Yale Campus Police officers on the Yale Campus Police body camera footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale on May 8th, 2018, tell me that they are going to report me to Yale Graduate School Dean Lynn Cooley for racial harassment, because I called them improperly for a NON-CRIMINAL matter.

(I thought this was a really excellent point in the brief.)

2. The CT FOI Commission erred in concluding that the Yale Campus Police determined that my allegations on May 8th, 2018 were unfounded.

a. They made no such determination as to whether harassment had occurred, either criminal or non-criminal harassment. As stated in the brief, I was pressed by the Yale Campus Police Supervisor to speculate as to whether or not the harassment I had been enduring was criminal in nature when he threatened to report me to Yale Graduate School Dean Lynn Cooley for racial harassment for having called the non-emergency helpline of the Yale Campus Police for a non-criminal matter.

3. The CT FOI Commission erred in concluding that the Yale Campus Police body camera footage was not otherwise available to the public, and was recorded during an investigation of a crime or alleged crime. The Yale Campus Police themselves made clear that I had called them improperly for a non-criminal matter at the time of the investigation, and the body camera footage had already been made available to legally distinct members of the public, including Yale Administrators.

4. The CT FOI Commission erred in concluding that the Yale Campus Police body camera footage from May 8th, 2018 contains uncorroborated criminal allegations and is exempt from disclosure. All of the factual allegations on the Yale Campus Police body camera footage are corroborated and none are of criminal activity.

5. (This is a particularly good point.) My then attorney already watched the Yale Campus Police body camera footage from May 8th, 2018. So, did various Yale Administrators. The law is clear that being able to retain a copy goes hand in hand with being able to view the body camera footage. And, if the Yale Campus Police should have denied disclosure of the YPD body cam footage, then they violated the law by permitting my then attorney to view the footage, by offering me to view the footage, and by allowing Yale Administrators to view the footage. But, it’s not the case.

6. (This is a particularly good point.) The Yale Campus Police cannot make arbitrary and capricious decisions about who can and cannot view Yale Campus Police body camera footage. The CT FOI Commission erred in concluding that a prior disclosure does not preclude the possibility of a subsequent claim of exemption. This is the definition of arbitrary and capricious. The Yale Campus Police does not get to decide that it will abide by open records law for one individual or entity and deny access to records to another individual or entity for arbitrary and capricious reasons.

7. These capricious and arbitrary decisions by the Yale Campus Police Department as to who may and may not view the Yale Campus Police body camera footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale are gross violations of the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution. The Yale Campus Police Department afforded Yale Administrators special privileges denied to other CT citizens with no legitimate public purpose for doing so. (This is an excellent point.)

8. None of the allegations are uncorroborated on the YPD body cam footage. And, if there are any uncorroborated allegations on the YPD body cam footage, they are non-criminal in nature, and the exemption does not apply.

9. The Yale Campus Police Department does not get to say magic words that make it the case that I called the non-emergency helpline of the Yale Campus Police on May 8th, 2018, to report a crime. The Yale Campus Police Officers are also peace officers called for a whole slew of non-criminal reasons. They have a whole slew of non-criminal duties. They do not get to simply say that I called them to report a crime so such is the case.

a. The Police could always point to some criminal statute or another and say that they were investigating this or that crime. The exemption would swallow the rule. If George Floyd had been killed in CT, CT would have denied the public access to the body cam footage, b/c Floyd died and the charges against him, of having passed a counterfeit $20 bill, were never proved. The CT Police, at Yale or otherwise, could always deny the public access to police body cam footage that they should rightly have. Law enforcement must be accountable to the public.

10. There is nothing in the Yale Campus Police report from May 8th, 2018 that indicates that any crime occurred or that any alleged crime was investigated.

11. Yale Campus Police Chief Ronnell Higgins made public statements about the Yale Campus Police body camera footage. He doesn’t get to resist disclosure to the public when partial disclosure and commentary thereupon has occurred. This would make it the case that the police could lie to the public about the contents of the body camera footage with no accountability.

12. The CT FOI Commission should have required disclosure of redacted records. Exemptions are to be narrowly construed and redacted records provided to the public, if at all possible, to protect the public’s interest in having access to Police body cam footage.

13. The event, including Siyonbola’s video thereof, has already been publicized thoughout the entire world. I could have recorded my own interactions with the Yale Campus Police, but just happened not to do so. But, my life has been destroyed, and I should be able to release my contemporaneous account of what occurred, via the Yale Campus Police body camera footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale.

The Awesome Appeal by Randazza Legal Group to the CT Superior Court to get the Yale Campus Police Body Camera Footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale

This is the terrific appeal of the CT FOI Commission’s travesty of justice decision denying the public access to the Yale Campus Police body camera footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale. It’s awesome. My attorneys, Jay Wolman and Marc Randazza of the Randazza Legal Group, did a fantastic job.

I will do another blog post analyzing the appeal, but I just wanted to share it right away.
