More Equal Than Others

Now we get to see the some of the real reasons for the riots. Not equality. Not being treated equal and held to equal standards. Nope. It’s for more and more special handouts above and beyond the current treatment protected class gets.

A college professor is living under police protection after rebuffing a request to exempt minority students from taking final exams in the wake of George Floyd’s death.


Malibu Police Department spokesman said the department increased police presence near the educator’s home after Klein received multiple threats.

Many universities faced disruptions stemming from the coronavirus, but the demonstrations and riots that followed Floyd’s death in police custody have led students to petition for delays or outright cancellations of classes and final exams. Those requests have quickly turned into threats on social media for professors who refuse to grant such accommodations. In the face of public pressure, UCLA administrators bowed to student demands and removed Klein from his class.

On Monday, Anderson School of Management dean Antonio Bernardo sent an email to students announcing an investigation into Klein’s “troubling” behavior.

Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, called UCLA’s suspension of Klein “disturbing.”

“Professor Klein is right. Treating students on the basis of equality is morally, ethically, and legally sound,” Wood said. “The fact that his complaining student has gotten traction with her complaint is disturbing.

While Klein remains under police protection, his students have won concessions from the university.

Bernardo, who did not return a request for comment, has increased the time students have to complete exams, given the “difficult circumstances.”

  1. For his sake, here’s hoping Prof. Klein has tenure. If he doesn’t, he likely won’t ever get it.

    Whether he’s tenured or not, though, it might be time to start looking for a position elsewhere. I know I’d be thinking about it if my school showed such a complete lack of support.
