    The Afrikan [sic] Student Union at the University of California has issued a list of demands– which include a $40 million endowment, their own “safe spaces” on campus, and mandatory “cultural awareness training” for all students — as compensation for what they call racially insensitive incidents. The demands, listed in an open letter, cite different “racial attacks” on campus. “Black students at UCLA are consistently made the targets of racist attacks by fellow students, faculty, and administration,” the Afrikan Student Union writes in their eight-point ultimatum. “Unfortunately, on April 30, 2017, a photo was released depicting the USAC [student government]...

    In an open letter published May 2, 2017 in UCLA’s Daily Bruin, history Professor Teo Ruiz penned an invite to all students, staff and faculty to join him and other professors every Monday in front of Bunche Hall to protest the Trump administration. The plan is to convince anyone within earshot that key on Trump’s agenda is to destroy the environment, do away with civil liberties, and give heath care the old heave-ho and cast it out of America’s existence forever. Twenty-one other UCLA professors signed the letter, which equated Trump’s presidency and administration to an “Orwellian nightmare,” referring to...

    (excerpt) By Lukas Mikelionis | 6:10 am, April 18, 2017 The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) administration is allegedly trying to sack an outspoken conservative professor for his resistance to political correctness. Keith Fink, a UCLA professor who teaches classes on entertainment law and free speech, fears the university could an upcoming professional review to help push him out of the institution. Fink has previously caused waves on campus by refusing to embrace trigger warnings and safe spaces, prompting the university to block some students from taking his classes. University policy dictates that every lecturer must undergo a periodic...

    UCLA's season is done and Lonzo Ball is headed to the pros, but his dad has plenty more to say. In an interview with the Orange County Register, Ball discussed the Bruins' tourney exit, heaping the blame on UCLA's white players for being unathletic and revealing Lonzo apparently had a hamstring injury.

    UPDATE: A spokesperson for Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian has confirmed that UCLA is funding part of the cost for the basketball team’s trip to Tennessee. Like a shell-game, they claimed that it isn’t state funds that are going to this trip — those funds are used for other things, like paying the salaries of people going on the trip and supporting the trip. Nazarian’s spokesperson said these funds are coming from ticket sales and other sources. It’s like a shell game. Just move funds around to limit exposure and liability. The funds that are going to pay for this trip could...

    The Score ^ | 10/23/16 | McKenzie Dalgleish
    It hasn't been a fun year for UCLA head coach Jim Mora. His five-star quarterback has missed the last two games, and the Bruins fell to 3-5 after their 52-45 loss to Utah on Saturday. That frustration spilled over into Mora's postgame press conference, where he took offense after a reporter asked if the fifth-year bench boss had lost the locker room. Mora responded by asking if the reporter had ever coached football, and ended on a Donald Trump reference.

    According to the AMCHA Initiative, a non-profit organization that investigates and reports on anti-Semitism at American universities, there was "an alarming spike" in acts of anti-Semitism on America's college campuses during the first half of 2016, and that spike was especially high at schools where there were groups like the SPJ [Students for Justice in Palestine]. The [boycott, divestment and sanctions] BDS movement is a radical, left-wing movement spouting inflammatory rhetoric, asserting that the Israelis are little more than modern Nazis or take after the South African apartheid movement. Because there is a big bad donor and a conservative activist...

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is considering whether wearing clothing in the workplace with the Gadsden flag printed on it constitutes legally actionable racial harassment. According to Eugene Volokh, a UCLA law professor who runs the “Volokh Conspiracy” blog at The Washington Post, the EEOC ruled two months ago that it will need to collect more evidence in a case filed in Jan. 2014 by an African American federal employee who complained about his coworker wearing a hat with the Gadsden flag printed on it. The complainant said that the Gadsden flag, which was designed during the Revolutionary War in...

    A New York Times editorial advocates for a new law allowing a secret court to take away citizens' right to own a gun at the discretion of the federal government.Citing the Orlando terror attack that left 50 dead including the shooter and 53 wounded at a gay nightclub, the piece advocates for a "no-buy" list similar to "no-fly" lists. Under the law, suspected terrorists would not be able to buy a gun. In an attempt to ensure the integrity of the lists and preserve due process, the author proposes people only be added to this no-buy list after a secret...

    There is currently no indication that Muslim UCLA shooter Mainak Sarkar had any terrorist motives. Though his note has as yet of to be released. But of somewhat more interest is the question of why Sarkar was misidentified as a "white male". One of the more obvious things about Maniak Sarkar is that he is not a white male. He can't be mistaken for a white male. But media coverage has prompted people to expect white male shooters. It's a type of prejudice that we don't much talk about because it's a politically correct prejudice. It's a prejudice encouraged by...

    This is the "white male" UCLA shooter Mainak Sarkar that the media has been telling us about for the last 24 hours. Unfortunately, none of what the media is telling us is true. The media appears to be falsely reporting identities that don't fit their political agenda. UCLA student Pardes S. witnessed a shocking moment when www.everipedia.com changed Sarkar's religion from Islam to Hindu. The news is now all over social media:

    Mainak Sarkar, 38, who lives in Minneapolis but is thought to have been born in India, shot engineering professor William Klug, 39, dead in his office before turning the gun on himself, the LAPD confirmed. Sarkar appears to have had a long-running feud with Klug. In a blog post uploaded on March 10 under his name, he writes that the professor 'stole all my code and gave it another student' and brands him a 'sick man'. The post, which was uploaded to a blog called Long Dark Tunnel but has since been deleted, says: 'William Klug, UCLA professor is not...

    The latest stop on Milo Yiannopoulous’s “Dangerous Faggot Tour” at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) was blocked by protests at the beginning, and evacuated by a bomb threat at the end. Before the event started, groups of protesters gathered outside of the Broad Art Building, where Milo was to speak. A large banner was hung from the third story of a neighboring building, which read: “Bruins Against Hate.” Groups of women and men stood outside holding pro-feminism signs — with black duct tape over their mouths (above).
