Biology professor Anita Moss at the University of Texas at San Antonio called the police on a black student for putting her feet ona a seat, reports KEYE.
A Twitter user, pistacio, identified herself as the student:
This is me in Anita Moss’ 2053 Bio classroom. Upon entering class I was told I needed to leave or would be escorted out by officers, I never disobeyed the student code of conduct. Not once. A police report is being filed atm, this is just the beginning. Thanks for your support! https://t.co/YUZGmwgFa7
