Tulane Students Build "Trump Wall" Outside Their Frat, Black Activists Tear It Down

A group of Tulane University students built a "Trump Wall" using sandbags in front of their own Fraternity house only to have a group of angry black activists illegally tear it down.

The Kappa Alpha fraternity told The Hayride building the wall is part of an annual tradition and they wrote "Make America Great Again" on the wall this year as a joke, nonetheless that didn't stop their property from being destroyed.

Video released yesterday of the wall being torn down shows frat members trying to reason with the angry activists saying the wall is "private property," but their pleas are entirely ignored:

Since video of the destructive act went viral over the last 24 hours, activist Manali Souda started a petition to "Stand against the wall" and stand with the vandals who destroyed it.

The petition says the wall, which was built on private property, has been a "source of aggression towards students of colour" and is "overtly threatening towards Muslim and Latino students."

"The wall is a tangible embodiment of the daily aggressions that Latino and Muslim students face at this school," the petition reads.

"The actions of Kappa Alpha has threatened this community; the individuals who took down their wall have only bolstered it. In this spirit, we stand with these individuals. If the individuals who took the wall down are targeted or penalised in any way for their actions, we the undersigned organisations would also like to claim responsibility for this act."

The petition already has already garnered over 700 signatures.
