On Wednesday, a Baylor student named Natasha shared this video of what happened to her on campus the day after the election:

“This guy went out of his way to bump into me, sort of shove me off the sidewalk. He said ‘no n*ggers allowed on the sidewalk.’ I was shocked, like I had no words. This other guy behind me said, ‘Dude, what are you doing? That’s not cool.’ The other one said, ‘What? I’m just trying to make America great again.'”

That was a horrifying situation, but no school is defined solely by its worst actors. Baylor students quickly organized to show that they’ve got Natasha’s back.

Using the hashtag #IWalkWithNatasha, Baylor students agreed to meet her outside of the Tidwell building on Friday after one of her classes. It quickly picked up steam, but the extent of the turnout—which clearly numbers in the hundreds—to walk Natasha to her class surprised even her and her friends.



Someone standing near the doors to the building as Natasha and her friends exited got a good view of her face as she saw the crowd, and it’s a moving moment.

These are strange times in America. Incidents of racism and threats following Trump’s win on Tuesday are hardly limited to any one place, but as long as there are so many willing to walk with the Natashas in their community, there’s reason to be hopeful.
