The Delaware State women’s lacrosse team claims that they were recently racially profiled. However, according to the authorities, they say that they were NOT racially profiled.

On April 20th, the lacrosse team was pulled over by the police. The team was traveling from Florida where they had played a game.

On their way back to Dover, Delaware, the team was pulled over for what they claim to be a ‘minor’ traffic violation. The team said that their belongings were searched and even drug-sniffing dogs were brought in.

Sydney Anderson, a player on the team, uploaded a video to YouTube. She had also written a story for the Hornet Newspaper, which is the student-body newspaper.

She claims that the police searched through their items because ‘they were black.’

Head Coach Pamella Jenkins allegedly felt ‘helpless’ during the stop. She said that she feels like her players are like her children.

“I am proud of our student-athletes, their coaches, the athletic department, the leadership, and the reporters and staff of the school newspaper,” President Tony Allen said. “Our mission is a critical one and as much a part of the American story as any.”

The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office located in Georgia stopped the bus. Sheriff William Bowman said the bus was pulled over as it was driving in the left lane.

He said that any bus or motor coach must drive in the two far right lanes.
