White Professor Sues After Being Fired for Insisting Black Student Do Her Homework Properly

cuny

Former City University of New York adjunct professor John Trujillo is suing CUNY (City University of New York) for firing him because he insisted a black student do her homework the way he assigned her to do it.  Before that episode, Trujillo had all positive reviews.  After the episode, he got an unfavorable review and was fired.  This despite the fact that every other student managed to do their work correctly.

From The Daily Caller:

In his federal race discrimination claim ,Trujillo says that he was treated “differently from and less favorably than” non-white employees. In 2014, Trujillo upbraided a black student in class who turned in an assignment on a 3 X 5 index card instead of the required 4 X 6.  The budding young scholar responded by calling him a “dick.”

After another confrontation Trujillo had her booted from the classroom by security. He says another black student then left in solidarity and vowed, “I’m going to write a letter, I’m going to take you down.”

And she did, complaining the professor was a racist who said all blacks are on welfare. Trujillo was suddenly given an “unsatisfactory” evaluation.

In the course of what sounds like a sham investigation, administrators refused to interview a black student who offered to defend him against the bias charges and explain that his detractors were outright lying.

He was fired from the $25,000 part-time job in February 2015.  Trujillo’s lawyer, Marshall Bellovin, told the Post he “didn’t get a fair and impartial investigation and accounting of the facts.  It was open and shut apparently from the start.”

It is also interesting to note that the college assigned an administrator to investigate the accusations made by the whiny student who cannot do her lessons properly that Trujillo was prejudiced and said all blacks are on welfare.  The administrator found that those charges were indeed bogus.
