Photo Shows White Student Dressed Up as Freddie Gray

On Sunday afternoon, Maryland native Detrick Manning posted a photo on Facebook that allegedly depicts College of Charleston student Sam Weinick dressed up as Freddie Gray at a party. Freddie Gray was a Black man who died as a result of police brutality in 2015.

Manning, who currently studies at Liverpool Hope University, posted the three photos hoping to draw attention to the racist culture of private schools in Maryland. In the first, a young man and woman pose with a caption that uses the N-word. In the second, a young man poses in a costume meant to depict Freddie Gray. In the third, a young man displays lewd drawings on his back, including the N-word.


In the text of the post, Manning claims that the photo of Weinick was originally posted by College of Charleston student Gianna Trombetta. CisternYard reached out to both Weinick and Trombetta for comment.
