THAT SEEMS ABOUT RIGHT: Chinese alumni compare USC to Mao for removing professor over Chinese word that sounds like n-word.

Social media users in China mock black students who complained

The University of Southern California is reeling after removing a business communication professor from the classroom for his pronunciation of a Chinese “filler” word that can sound like “nigger.”

More than 100 of Greg Patton’s former students, most of them Chinese by ethnicity or nationality, accused administrators of “casting insult toward the Chinese language” and compared their action against Patton to Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution in China.

They demanded the punishment of whoever filed the racial discrimination complaint against him in a Sept. 1 letter.
