University of California, Los Angeles (commonly known as just UCLA) is the Los Angeles campus of the University California system. It's located in the neighborhood of Westwood (notable for its remarkably low crime rate) and is considered along with University of California, Berkeley to be one of the two best, most prestigious, and most selective University of California schools. While applications are open to all, there is a bias in admissions toward students coming from Los Angeles-area public schools because of the notion that many students from these schools are underprivileged. UCLA is sometimes synonymous with affirmative action because of these unfair policies.

During the 2020 Leftist rectification campaign UCLA investigated a white professor who read Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail, which reportedly contains the N-word, to students in a political science class. UCLA also held a town hall shaming and urged students to come forward with complaints. The department head and other faculty charged,
"The lecturer also showed a portion of a documentary which included graphic images and descriptions of lynching, with a narrator who quoted the n-word in explaining the history of lynching. Many students expressed distress and anger regarding the lecture and the lecturer's response to their concerns during the lecture. We share students' concerns that the lecturer did not simply pause and reassess their teaching pedagogy to meet the students' needs."
