Knocking on doors for political campaigns in not only legal but protected; however, neighbors called the police on two black Morehouse students who were campaigning for Congressional candidate David Kim.

Dave Kim issued the following statement in regards to the incident:

When I repeatedly hear of incidents like this, it deeply saddens me that this has become a running commentary of my campaign.  I understand why every parent of a child of color must have “the talk” and worry about all our team members out in the field.

Eli Sabur is a student at Morehouse College working for David Kim’s Congressional District 7 campaign canvassing neighborhoods and  he won’t let this incident stop him.
