Call 2 Action: Graduate Students of Color is outraged at UCLA professor, Val Rust, for daring to correct a grammatical errors of minority students.
The group claims that “[The] barrage of questions by white colleagues and the grammar ‘lessons’ by the professor have contributed to a hostile class climate.” That’s right, how dare he actually teach the class. The professor said he wants the students to be accurate and do a good job with their citations and bibliographies, which apparently some students don’t agree with. One particular incident the group referenced was Rust telling a black student to not capitalize “indigenous”, because, well, you just don’t capitalize that word so I don’t see what the problem is.
“I have attempted to be rather thorough on the papers and am particularly concerned that they do a good job with their bibliographies and citations, and these students apparently don’t feel that is appropriate,”
The grammar corrections cause the group to do a ‘sit in’ on a meeting of the class afterward in which 25 students participated. The acts of bullying by the student group has caused the professor to question his past decisions, of which one incident he described in a letter to colleagues where he remained impartial in a debate between a black female student and a white female student. He said that he probably ‘made matters worse’ by not ‘aggressively and proactively’ siding with the black student.
“I likely did not handle the situation well, because I chose not to stop the discussion between them, so it went on for quite a while, and the Students of Color apparently interpreted my silence to mean I wasn’t supporting them.”
So now if you stay neutral in a debate, you’re racist, if you try to teach a student proper grammar and spelling, you’re racist, if you disagree with Obama, you’re racist, and I could honestly go on for hours and hours if I wanted to. I don’t know about you, but I think that word is really starting to lose its meaning since it has become the go-to for the left in their bullying of the rest of society to attempt to get us to comply with their idiotic demands. You know what would really calm racial tensions is if so many people stopped trying to claim every little action by a white person is racist, it’s that type of attitude that has set race relations back further than anything else has in our nation.
