Kingsborough Security Places Knee on Student’s Back, Sparking Protest

BARUCH COLLEGE–CUNY students and faculty protested at Kingsborough Community College on Nov. 10 after campus security physically restrained a student for allegedly intervening when a white student used racial slurs toward a Black student. Protestors and supporters are calling for greater accountability from the administration.

“On Thursday I saw no real reason to think why things would change at all at Kingsborough without us collectively organizing and raising awareness about this,”  College of Staten Island student senator and electrical engineering major Petra Gregory, 27, said over Zoom.
