A UCLA professor who was suspended over an exchange with a student about grading black students more leniently in the immediate aftermath of George Floyd’s killing is suing the school, The College Fix reports. What’s a brief history here?
Gordon Klein, an accounting professor at the university’s Anderson School of Management, was suspended in 2020 after students launched a campaign to have him fired.
According to reports, students were upset over the tone of an email Klein sent to a student making it clear that he would not offer grading leniency to black students and that final exams would still be administered despite the ongoing protests across the country. The professor’s email was a response to a non-black student asking that black students be provided special consideration and accommodations due to Floyd’s death in May 2020 and the protests that followed. The student in question reportedly requested a “no-harm and shortened final exam, and extended deadlines for final assignments and projects in consideration of black students’ well -being in light of nationwide protests against police brutality.”
The student added, “This is 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,” and asked the professor to consider grading the course “on a curve” for black students.
In response, Klein wrote, “Thanks for your suggestion in your email below that I give black students special treatment, given the tragedy in Minnesota.

Klein then questioned the possibility that a “white [Minneapolis] student” might “possibly be even more devastated” by Floyd’s death.
He also quoted Martin Luther King Jr. and said, “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 […]
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
