'Binghamton University has rebuked a professor that said she would favor non-whites and females over white males in her classroom.

WIVT reports SUNY Binghamton Sociology Professor Ana Maria Candela sparked outrage on conservative media outlets over her original syllabus for a spring course called “Social Change, Introduction to Sociology.” Candela said she would practice “progressive stacking” when calling on students during classroom discussions, prioritizing minorities, women and shy people over anyone who is “white, male, or someone privileged by the racial and gender structures of our society to have your voice easily voiced and heard.”

According to the New York Post, student Sean Harrigan filed a Title IX discrimination complaint against the school, drawing attention from Fox News and other publications.

“How am I supposed to get a full participation grade if I’m not called on because of the way I was born?” Harrigan told the Post.

A spokesperson for Binghamton University told WIVT that progressive stacking violates the school’s Faculty Staff Handbook and the section has been removed from Candela’s syllabus.'
