At UCLA, classes are still in session—remotely, due to the pandemic—even while National Guard troops patrol near the campus to stop any violence that might arise from protests over the killing of George Floyd. Many schools and colleges had already completed their terms before a white police officer in Minneapolis kneeled on the neck of Floyd, a black man he was restraining, for eight minutes until Floyd died.
