Intelligent people used to go to universities and colleges across the world. Nowadays, schools are nothing more than indoctrination centers that hold a form of “woke Olympics” almost every day. The majority of professors don’t teach facts anymore, instead opting for identity-driven ideologies. Students who have been brainwashed by these supposed educators don’t want to learn the truth just so they can score enough virtue signaling points to earn them entrance in safe spaces.
Even if there are professors who genuinely want to prepare their students for the real world by teaching them historic reality and grade them based on their actual work, they are vilified and persecuted because they’re not a leftist robot.
UCLA Accounting Professor Gordon Klein has been suspended by the school for three weeks because he wanted to deliver a final exam to his students equally, regardless of race.
Students who described themselves as “nonblack allies” - whatever the heck that means - asked Klein to “give black students special treatment, given the tragedy [involving George Floyd] in Minnesota.”
Really quick, isn’t that racist? For a “nonblack” to assume that a black student couldn’t take an exam, or needs special treatment, because they must be too distraught to do so questions the black student’s ability.
Anyway, Klein has been accused of mocking the request in a change.org petition. And because of the school is calling Klein’s response “troubling,” the professor of 39 years has been suspended.
The kicker of all of this is that it’s an online course, which Klein - in his response - asked how he was supposed to determine a student’s skin color if he can’t see them.
According to the petition, here’s Klein’s response:
Thanks for your suggestion in your email below that I give black students special treatment, given the tragedy in Minnesota. Do you know the names of the classmates that are black? How can I identify them since we've been having online classes only? Are there any students that 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? Also, do you have any idea if any students are from Minneapolis? I assume that they probably are especially devastated as well. I am thinking 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. Can you guide me on how you think I should achieve a "no-harm" outcome since our sole course grade is from a final exam only? One last thing strikes me: 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? Thanks, G. Klein
Was Klein mocking the student’s request, or did he respond with critical thinking in order to wake the student up out of their moronic slumber?
In an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Klein said he’s being used by the school as a “sacrificial lamb” in order to quell unrest among “those who threaten to riot.”
“The school simply doesn't care,” Klein said. “They want to placate the angry mob.”
I’ve said it many times over the last few years, but I’ll say it again. Just because you’re educated, that doesn’t make you intelligent. In fact, quite often the opposite it true.
