Yale employee smashes window over controversial image

News

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — An employee at Yale may be facing charges for breaking a stained glass panel in the university’s Calhoun residential college dining hall.

The panel showed slaves carrying bales of cotton. The New Haven Independent reports the African American worker said he was tired of looking at the racist image.

“The employee apologized for his actions and subsequently resigned from the university,” a Yale-issued statement said.

The university went on to say that the New Haven Police Department has taken over the case and it’s now up to law enforcement whether or not charges will follow.
