In early April, in response to the incident, a group of Black first-year students at Rutgers Law began circulating a petition calling for the creation of a policy on racial slurs and formal, public apologies from the student and the professor, Vera Bergelson.


Debate Erupts at N.J. Law School After White Student Quotes Racial Slur.


A Rutgers Law student repeated an epithet from a legal case, and now Black students at the New Jersey school are calling for a policy on slurs --  and apologies.

The controversy over the use of a racial slur that has embroiled a public law school in New Jersey began with a student quoting from case law during a professor’s virtual office hours. The first-year student at Rutgers Law School in Newark, who is white, repeated a line from a 1993 legal opinion, including the epithet, when discussing a case.

What followed has jolted the state institution, unleashing a polarizing debate over the constitutional right to free speech on campus and the power of a hateful word at a moment of intense national introspection over race, equity and systemic bias. The tension comes at a time of heightened sensitivity to offensive words on college and law school campuses, where recent uses of slurs by professors during lessons have resulted in discipline and dismissal.

The controversy began on Oct. 28, after a criminal law class all first-year students are required to take.

In discussing the circumstances under which a criminal defendant could be held liable for crimes committed by his co-conspirators, the student repeated a quote from a defendant that appeared in an opinion written by a former State Supreme Court judge, Alan B. Handler.

The sad turn is that the radical left is running school education, as it's done in communist regimes!!!

A lifelong liberal and critic of former President Trump, Boghossian believes describing people as left or right is losing utility. It’s those who demand you think a certain way who are on one side, while those who do not are on the other.

“We are facing an extraordinarily intolerant dangerous ideology, perpetuated by people who want to rob us of our cognitive liberty,” he says.

Systemic Leftist Indoctrination of America’s Next Generation

“Critical Race Theory” and “equity” are the Left’s reeducation camp catch words.

The socialist Democrat Party’s short-term strategy to establish perennial majorities in the executive and legislative branches could be achieved most directly by House Resolution 1, which bears a laughably contrarian name -- the “For the People Act.” Having passed in the House in March on a near-party-line vote, this scheme to legalize the Demos’ bulk-mail ballot fraud nationwide is now before the Senate (S1).
