    He would have been wise to just leave his response a short "I don't know which students are black as it is an online course."

    It's all about Equal Outcome, NOT Equal Opportunity.

    The next step is guaranteed employment and pay, regardless of qualifications or performance.

    Always has been the agenda.

    I’ve never heard of grading leniency as suggested for the black students. Accountants are pretty rigid about test answers, you know, it’s either black or white.:innocent:

    Kudos to the teacher for having the balls to do the right thing.

    It’s never been about equality.

    Free college
    Special scholarships
    Affirmative action
    Low interest loans
    Job placement
    Social programs
    Welfare
    Set aside contracts
    Set aside housing
    Job training
    Free medical
    Racial quotas

    Now, relaxed academics

    I grew up poor and white and I never saw any of the above, so I am left looking for the “white privilege” I’m supposed to be enjoying.

    I entered the military, out of duty as well as lack of options. Met my wife of similar background. We scraped our way through college without help. Made good lives, raised a family and got no assistance sending our daughter through college. At times, I worked three jobs and never took a dime from anyone.

    Now, I’m supposed to kneel, wash the feet of protesters and apologize for things I had nothing to do with? I’m supposed to recognize that issues like this are warranted by some social inequality that I fail to see?

    What do today’s leaders (black and white) think will happen when folks like me get sick and tired of being sick and tired?

    This crap isn’t playing well for the majority of this country, which happens to be silent right now, but this silence won’t last.

    The REAL sense of entitlement does not stem from white privilege. Look around.

    You can't get here from there!
    Do white students who lose an immediate family member get lenient grading?

    Beause if they don't, they are the victim of racial inequality.

    Divide and conquer.

    I didn't realize they were talking about an actual member of Floyd's immediate family. If that's the case, then I say let them retake the test with different questions of course...

    Yeah, not cool.

    Allow them to retake a legitimate test. But no special grading allowed. They either know the material, or they don't.

    Nobody gave a [email protected]#7 about me when my Father died.

    "Academics have defended Klein for 'treating students on the basis of equality'" ---

    Whoa! Maybe all is not totally lost with colleges! I would have just assumed everyone "in academia" would have thrown him under the bus.

    Never apologize or ask forgiveness of a sin from a religion that does not offer absolution...
