Petition To Reinstate USC Marshall Professor Greg Patton

Directly below I explained the controversy at USC Marshall concerning the suspension of Professor Greg Marshall for saying a common Chinese word that sounds like a racist word in English.  His supporters have started a petition to have him reinstated at Change.Org.  Please sign this petition if you believe in free speech and tolerance.

Yes, exactly. There is absolutely no pause between 'nei' and 'ge'. The professor's pronunciation sounds exactly like a Chinese is trying to think during conversation and starts to use this filler word many times. Again, there is no pause between the two syllables at all. He meant nothing but to create a scenario that people overly use filler words and makes the communication inefficient. Why he got suspended for this? What's happening here in the USA?
