What's the USE of being a TEACHER...if you can't DISCUSS truth. Fact is, racism is REAL. And it's the TRUTH? . I remember I turned in a teacher years ago who would not teach a portion of the slave trade cuz it minimized or dehumanized white folks hero IMAGE.

She doesn't have a problem with white males except when they insist on (angrily) disrupting her lecture. The white males have a problem with her discussing a system that works to their great benefit. Could this situation have been handled better? Yes. The college should have known that the topic would be too sensitive for the 'delicate' ears of some. It should have anticipated the reaction from some students and had a plan to address it when it arose. The college allows her to teach that...
