A white professor at an Indiana university who contacted police to his classroom after a black student rejected to change seats will not be suspended for the rest of the semester, the university announced in a statement.

The student from Chicago who refused to switch seats, Sultan “Mufasa” Benson, described the teacher's disciplinary action as an inadequate “slap on the wrist." Benson has said he feels he was pointed out in class because of his race,

"I want justice, and a temporary leave for all of the policies he broke is still just the bare minimum,” he said. “But at least it's a step forward in the right direction.”
