UCLA Prof. Who Refused To Postpone Exams For Black Students Is Suspended

“Remember that MLK famously said that people should not be evaluated based on the ‘color of their skin.”

Published

A UCLA Professor has been placed on leave after he rejected requests to allow black students to take final exams at a later date as a response to the death of George Floyd and black lives matter protests.

Accounting lecturer Gordon Klein responded to the requests by noting “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 for your suggestion in your email below that I give black students special treatment, given the tragedy in Minnesota,” Klein, who has been at UCLA for 39 years, wrote in an email to students.

“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?” he responded, before quoting MLK.

In response, more than 20,000 people have signed a petition that demands UCLA officials fire Klein.

The petition suggests that Klein’s email violates UCLA’s “holistic” and “inclusive” values.

“We ask for your support now in holding Professor Klein to the same ethical standards he claims to be essential to a holistic and inclusive educational experience, which is what he owes to his students as an educational leader,” it reads.

“We, the students, refuse to support Gordon Klein any further and demand to see his employment terminated as soon as possible.” it adds.

The Free Beacon reports that Klein is now under police protection after threats of violence.

A counter petition has been set up to defend Klein, and has received almost double the signatures the one against him has:

The incident is not an isolated one, with reports from elsewhere in the country that black students are demanding they be given leniency or just better grades in light of current events.

‘Sexism’ Row Erupts Over Not Enough Parasitic Worms Being Named After Female Scientists

Clown world strikes again.

Published

A sexism row has erupted over concerns that not enough newly discovered species of parasitic worms are named after women.

Yes, really.

Concerns are being raised as to whether “gender bias” has played a role in naming the creatures after a team of scientists led by parasitologist Robert Poulin “scoured studies in eight journals published between 2000 and 2020,” reports Sky News.

“Of the 596 species named after eminent scientists, only 111, or 19%, recognised women, according to the experts from New Zealand’s University of Otago.”

According to the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, “We found a consistent gender bias among species named after eminent scientists, with male scientists being immortalised disproportionately more frequently than female scientists.”

Of course, the reason more of the creatures were named after male scientists is that men are more likely to choose to study science subjects in the first place.

Therefore there are more male scientists to choose from when deciding who to name species of creatures after.

It has absolutely nothing to do with “sexism,” just as more men working on oil rigs or on construction sites is due to natural biological differences between men and women and the choices they make.

The fact that any of this is even being treated seriously is another damning indictment of how mainstream science has been warped by intersectional nonsense and the culture wars.

Men and women are different. They have different primary character traits and as a result are more likely to want to pursue different careers and life choices.

That’s not “sexist,” it’s scientific biological reality. Deal with it.

Rafael Nadal Slams Wimbledon Banning Russian Players

“It’s not their fault what’s happening.”

Tennis legend Rafael Nadal has slammed Wimbledon’s decision to ban all Russian and Belarusian players from their tournament, asserting, “It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment.”

Last month, Wimbledon organizers confirmed that players from both countries would be barred from competing in the tournament even if they have vocally opposed the war in Ukraine.

The announcement means that top players like Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev will not be able to compete at SW19 this year.

Players had initially been expected to be given an opportunity to perform an act of ideological subservience by denouncing Russia in order to be able to take part, but now even this won’t be enough.

All-time grand slam wins leader Rafael Nadal criticized the ban as being “very unfair” on his “Russian mates” and colleagues.

“Poor them…It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment,” Nadal told reporters.

“In that sense, I feel very sorry for them,” he added, asserting that the organizers had taken a “drastic” position.

Nadal said blocking Russians and Belarusians from competing would also mess up the tennis ranking system.

“The 2,000 points, whenever we go to the grand slams, they are really important and we have to go to those tournaments. So we will have to see the measures that we take,” he said.

Nadal joins fellow generational talent Novak Djokovic in denouncing the measure, with the Serb calling the decision to ban Russians and Belarusians “crazy”.

As we highlighted last month, Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina demanded that Russian and Belarusian players be subjected to ideological purity tests before they are allowed to compete in international tournaments.
