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. He just cut it out-saying he didn't have enough time. Bullshyte. He was showing slides of subjects that had absolutely NOTHING to do with colonialism, And he was a HISTORY teacher! But who was told that they were being unreasonable and...

The professor is now being reprimanded. That is structural racism! Hmmm, she’s right but it sounds like she lost her role and relational cool in the mix, maybe helped bring it on by head banging students and directly challenging them to complain. Better ways to teach.

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...

I saved the video, so next time some White person or Black person try to tell me that the police is gonna turn on everybody I have proof.
