I had heard about that, I think that criminal charges should have been filed against the campus cops who did that to him. That just wasn't right. He had gotten loud when they gave him attitude about not having his card and then when confronted by security he was (and rightly so) outraged because he was trying to study, had studied there in the library before and didn't feel that he had to go all the way home to find/get his card. They didn't have to treat him like that though. But I don't think that the initial problem was his race. It was his attitude. Though I think that they went way overboard in their response to him, the issue was not racial. The media just played up that angle of it for a more sensational story.
