Apparently liberals now say it is “racist” to expect minorities to behave in a classroom.
A lecturer at the University of Texas-San Antonio was actually investigated by police for telling a black student to be respectful in the classroom.
Anita Moss, a white woman and a senior lecturer of biology at the college, was confronted by police for telling black student Paige Burgess to behave.
According to College Fix:
The University of Texas-San Antonio cleared Anita Moss of showing racial bias toward a black student, who has a history of being disruptive, by calling campus police on her.
But a second investigation faulted the senior lecturer for telling students throughout the fall semester to “be respectful in class” by keeping their feet off chairs, putting away their phones and not talking.
Moss even asked one group of students to separate for the rest of the semester, as they were causing constant disruptions, according to the report by Howard Grimes, interim dean of the College of Sciences.
The student whom Moss called the police on never filed a complaint and has since apologized to the instructor for her behavior.
Still, the school thoroughly investigated the teacher’s classwork and reputation and found that she was highly rated by her students past and present. Indeed, the school found that Moss “was one of the best instructors they had” at the school.
But activist students looking to cause a race row posted a video to social media when a student was led out for disrupting the class.
So this happened today in class, a girl had her feet up and the professor called the police after calling our class uncivil 😬 pic.twitter.com/spq0ShXiFU

Activists — most of whom do not attend the school — began crying “raaaacism.” I guess expecting minorities to act like grown-ups is not “racist.
Still, the school is actually backing the teacher saying that there was no racial bias in the incident.
Despite that, the activists have continued to push claiming that the incident is all about racism when it is really just about acting like a grown up in public.
