I am now running my annual July fund-raising campaign to celebrate the twelfth anniversary of the establishment of Behind the Black. For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. These companies practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.

 

Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

 

Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

Pushback: Judge rules lawsuit from professor suspended for refusing to favor black students can proceed

King's dream banned at UCLA
King’s dream of equal treatment for all
called racist at UCLA

Don’t comply: The lawsuit of Gordon Klein, a professor at UCLA for 39 years who was suspended for three weeks in June of 2021 because he refused to favor black students in grading or exempt them from final exams, will proceed following a favorable ruling by a Los Angeles county judge.

On March 30, 2022, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge H. Jay Ford III ruled against UCLA when it attempted to have Klein’s lawsuit dismissed. Ford ruled that Klein provided sufficient evidence to “support judgment in his favor” for several of his claims. The lawsuit is scheduled for a jury trial in April 2023.

I covered Klein’s story in a blacklist column in September ’21, describing how Klein was not only suspended but was also subjected to physical threats requiring a police presence at his home.

I also noted that Klein’s lawsuit, available to read here [pdf], specifically targets not just UCLA but “…the individual administrators at the Anderson School personally liable for their wrongful and slanderous actions.” With the lawsuit now proceeding those individuals, specifically Antonio Bernardo, the Dean of the Anderson School, and the entire 26-member Board of Regents of the University of California, are facing punishment for their slanders and bigoted policies.

As always, I strongly recommend my readers spend the time to read Klein’s complaint. Rather than depend on my shortened description, read the whole thing, in all its gory details. You will no longer look at modern academia in the same way. Once an oasis for open discussion, equal treatment, and intellectual thought, established academia has now become a haven for bigotry and hate, focused specifically in destroying anyone who does not support giving minorities favored treatment.

Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

    Sadly, the Dean and Regents will almost certainly never pay a penny, being covered by the school’s Officers and Directors Insurance. Of course, that will almost certainly go up in price if the plaintiff wins. And who will pay for that? The citizens of California through their taxes and the students through their tuition.

    Col Beausabre–
    If you know…. what kinda’ Budget does the entire UC System operate on? I’m only vaguely familiar with their set-up. (I have enough trouble following the money in my own State.)

    tangent–
    I’ll drop this in here– it’s topical, related, and amazing complete:

    Kurt at Uncivil Law
    “Everything you need to know about ‘Kennedy v Bremerton’ ”
    (“The Prayer Case” at SCOTUS)

    (live stream)

    –>Just recently argued at SCOTUS, Kurt is going over the complete audio and text-transcript, paragraph by paragraph.

    “Question Presented to the Court:
    Is a public school employee’s prayer during school sports activities protected speech, and if so, can the public school employer prohibit it to avoid violating the Establishment Clause?”

    I am not a religious man, but I respect it in others when I see it. After all, it’s one of the things I promised to defend when I raised my right arm so many years ago. What the Left wants is not Freedom of Religion, but Freedom from Religion (Unless, you’re Muslim, in which case public prayer is beautiful and to be respected. Do a thought experiment about what happens where the employee is a follower of Mohammed. Allah Akbar!)

    What I find completely disgusting about the LEFT’s insistence of their BELIEF that black people are LESS INTELLIGENT and LESS CAPABLE of LEARNING is it’s so WIDELY ACCEPTED by both the LEFT AND BLACKS!! Don’t they see that they are NOT being “protected”?? It’s NOT to protect them, it’s to KEEP THEM IGNORANT AND VOTING FOR DEMOcrats!!
