UCLA Professor Put on Leave for Refusing to Give Special Privileges to Black Students Amidst George Floyd Riots
A UCLA professor has been placed on leave because he refused to give special privileges to black students over the white students during a crucial exam.
Gordon Klein, a professor of accounting at the Anderson School of Management, refused to adhere to demands from non-black students who were using the protests for deceased drug addict serial felon George Floyd as an excuse to virtue signal on behalf of their black brethren.
The students asked special treatment for blacks due to “traumas, we have been placed in a position where we much choose between actively supporting our black classmates or focusing on finishing up our spring quarter.
“We believe that remaining neutral in times of injustice brings power to the oppressor and therefore staying silent is not an option,” the students wrote.
They said it was “not a joint effort to get finals canceled for non-black students, but rather an ask that you exercise compassion and leniency with black students in our major.”
Klein responded to the request in a sardonic manner, which resulted in a digital lynch mob requesting his firing from the university.
“Thanks for your suggestion in your email below that I give black students special treatment, given the tragedy in Minnesota,” he wrote in his response.
“Do you know the names of the classmates that are black?” he asked. “How can I identify them since we’ve been having online classes only?”
Klein also asked if there are students who “may be of mixed parentage, such as half black-half Asian?”
“What do you suggest I do with respect to them? A full concession or just half?” he asked.
Klein also noted that “a white student from there might be possibly even more devastated by this, especially because some might think that they’re racist even if they are not. My TA is from Minneapolis, so if you don’t know, I can probably ask her.”
“Remember that MLK famously said that people should not be evaluated based on the ‘color of their skin.’ Do you think that your request would run afoul of MLK’s admonition?” he asked.
UCLA immediately caved to the digital lynch mob and threw Klein under the bus. He is now on leave and may actually lose his job for refusing to cater to the idiocy of his social justice warrior students.
“Respect and equality for all are core principles at UCLA Anderson. It is deeply disturbing to learn of this email, which we are investigating. We apologize to the student who received it and to all those who have been as upset and offended by it as we are ourselves,” a spokesperson from the Anderson School of Management wrote in an email.
The regime of diversity and multiculturalism is really flexing its muscle now, showing that no dissent will be tolerated from the idiocracy it is forcing upon all of society.
