Skip to comments.UNFAIR - Med Student Slammed With 1 Year Suspension for Contesting Aspects of Microaggression-ism
Posted on 01/04/2019 1:05:53 PM PST by gaijin
Kieran Ravi Bhattacharya had a pediatrician mother who pushed him, and when his friends were out playing baseball and lighting things on fire, he had to stay indoors and play his violin.
Kieran is 22 years old now, but let's take a look at him:
But he stuck to it, eventually winning acceptance to the medical school of the University of Virginia, where the acceptance rate is just 6%.
In mid November Kieran had a class called Social Issues in Medicine. One of the lecturers for this class was Dr. Beverly Adams, pictured below:
No, I'm serious. That's really her.
They say she, "has a PhD in Microaggressions". Hey, what in hell is that..?
I looked her up in NCBI and she seems to get really hot over microaggressions shown by doctors in their care for Native Americans on revervations (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4386281/).
But I digress...
Dr. Adams' lecture to Kieran's class carried the title, "Microaggressions: Why They Are So Sensitive". Apparently one of the early life experiences of Dr. Adams that attuned her to the problem of Microaggressions was being from West Virginia. People would ask her the haunting question, "You're from West Virginia, so why are you wearing SHOES..?"
Another bit of her personal holocaust was the unforgettable zinger, "You're from West Virgina, but where is your accent..?"
Wow, that would really leave a mark, I'd just sink to my knees in tears.
You can confirm my claims via the audio file link I'm going to give you below, thought you have to advance the bar to 28:45, where after Dr. Adams' lecture Kieran asks for clarification about Microaggressions pretty politely, nothing at all like how AntiFa might "question" you:
Fast Forward to 28:45, their exchange continues to 34:00 or so
In their exchange, anarchist Kieran did bad stuff like ask, "Hey, if I punch someone in the face, SURE I'd be guilty, but if I punch THE AIR and someone takes offense, well....can I merit blame for that..?"
Because of Bhattacharya's questions about Dr. Adams' lecture, he was summoned to a conference with UVAMS's "ASAC", the Academic Standards and Achievement Committee.
You can see the committe in the photo below:
They don't look like they are playin', huh?
Knowing how crazy the politics can get on campus these days, Keiran practiced a little Defensive Doctoring by taking that committee photo personally on that day, something I'll bet they didn't like.
ASAC told Bhattacharya that he had been, "repeatedly disruptive and threatening". When Kieran asked the committee to cite some examples of his threatening behavior they cited for him the fact that he was audio recording the ongoing meeting with them.
Nice, huh? They handed Kieran a one year suspension.
Med School is not like college, where student body is highly fluid; you are bonded to a group of 100 or so people very tightly. Study circles form, informal mentor/mentee arrangements are made, each helping others. Usually you graduate as that same group --this needless suspension is intended to induce Kieran to QUIT medical school completely, let leave the school blameless.
Meanwhile Kieran would still be on the hook for all the tuition debt.
UVA also arranged for their Police Chief to drop Kieran a line:
There were other scary police documents, too, they basicaly say if he steps on campus he gets the cuffs.
So here is this upstanding, studious guy who delays gratification, and works his butt off. But juuuust because of a few polite questions to a SJW from hell after a lecture --POOF..!!
It's alllll gone...
His twitter handle is kieranravib .
Where is a news source for this other than the Big League politics blog?
Life after life destroyed by insane degenerates. Whos going to do anything about it? No one, thats who.
After eleven years of voice lessons, and 16 years of living in Florida, I STILL have a Boston Accent.
As everybody reminds me daily.
And yet....I carry on. :-)
What a terrible burden to bear! ;-)
Well if I was a dude named ‘Carrianne’ I’d be micro-——— Oh, KIERAN. Never mind.
But I’m made of sterner stuff!
Career academics are usually the stupid, most rigid and narrow-minded people you will ever meet.
It is a paradox, but the times have given it proof.
Especially one who looks like a she beast.
I sure hope that evil woman who did this to him doesn’t experience a MACRO-aggression soon. You know, like when shes’s pumping gas and a carjacking goes bad.
That stuff happens a lot out there in the real world.
Years ago I worked with a Boston born and bred MIT grad. We went on a business trip to Atlanta. Went to lunch at a local deli. The server was a young Black girl that spoke Southern Ebonics. I had to act as the translator between them. Very funny moment.
Most West Virginia jokes I ever heard were about a lack of indoor plumbing, falling off a mountain, and inbred relationships.
If this is real he needs to start a GoFundMe account, get that conservative lawyer group that fights these types of issues and have them drive everyone in that room into penury!
Oh Stewardess, perhaps I can be of some help:
Thomas Jefferson has hit terminal velocity spinning in his grave.
Well, if there’s ever a mass shooting on the campus of University of Virginia then at least it won’t be a total shocker to anyone.
Find a different medical school
I have cousins from WV. I was from Ohio. My favorite joke was: A West Virginian and an Ohioan are standing across the Ohio River from one another. The West Virginian yells over and ask the Ohio to come over for a visit. The Ohioan say I cant, I got a case or diarrhea. The West Virginian yells back well come on over, Ill help you drink.
A couple of comments below the article...don’t know if true or not:
- - -
This was an optional lecture. Other incidents, including getting the cops called on him at the library for erratic behavior, occurred between the lecture and the subsequent email. He also doxxed the members of the committee on 4chan.

this kid is not suspended purely for the microaggression conversation. He has made many comments and remarks/threats this fall that were reported and has even been previously held back. he has a history. guy is weird.
