Black Students Kicked Out Of Trump Rally For No Apparent Reason

Around 30 Valdosta State University students were reportedly removed from the Republican front-runner’s campaign event even before it started.

Donald Trump spent the eve of Super Tuesday, one of the most important events during the presidential race, in true Trump fashion — by being racist.

After having a Secret Service agent put a Time magazine reporter in a chokehold during an early campaign stop in Virginia, the Republican presidential front-runner continued his streak by reportedly removing a group of African-American students from his rally in Georgia.

As The Des Moines Register reports, the Secret Service asked around 30 black Valdosta State University students to leave the event, which was hosted at the school’s PE complex, even before it began. The students were standing quietly in the bleachers, when the security informed them about the boorish billionaire’s orders.




“We didn’t plan to do anything,” said Tahjila Davis, one of the students escorted out of the rally. “They said, ‘This is Trump’s property, it’s a private event.’ But I paid my tuition to be here. I don’t understand why they would do something like that. I have not experienced any racism on this campus until now.”

After being kicked out of the gymnasium, Valdosta police reportedly ushered the visibly upset students even farther away from the rally.

“I think we got kicked out because we're a group of black people,” explained a tearful student. “I guess ... they're afraid we're going to say something or do something. But we just really wanted to watch the rally. To get kicked out because we're a group of black people ... shows you how racist our own school is.”




Perhaps Black Lives Matter protesters, who interrupted his Virginia rally earlier in day by chanting “No more hate! No more hate! Let's be equal, let's be great!", really left an impression on the real estate mogul.

This incident of blatant racism comes just days after Donald Trump was widely condemned for his reluctance to distance himself from white supremacists, namely former KKK leader David Duke.
