well the new semester started last week and I'm taking a Sociology class. Today i got really hacked off at the teacher due to her asertation that the term "Redskin" comes from Settlers killing Indians and using their skins as Bota bags (wine skins) to carry water across the plains, and that the the settlers purposly killed off the Native Tribes comparing it to the Holocost. When I challenged her on it she brought up the the blankets given to natives that had smallpox (she said polio).

Drop the class. There's nothing there worth learning..........

But first, ask the "teacher" which state seceded from the Confederacy - just to test his/her knowledge......it was WV.

I have to take it for school. I would drop it but it's almost to late to find another class to fill that spot...i'm just glad that it's only a semester of this bullshit that I have to deal with.

New information is great. False information gets you a degree from DU.

Learning false propaganda? I thought you were a free thinker. Would you be as knee-jerk positive about the (probably adjunct) instructor's views if she had trotted out other shibboleths - ones you know are false but that still have emotional currency among your sub-culture?

fucktard I have no problem learning new information. What I have a problem with is when a teacher stands up there and spouts bullshit like it's the truth. Bullshit like "40 million Indians were killed by settlers, it's the same thing as the Holocaust" that is a wholesale lie.

So you advocate the teaching of false information to students because the information fits some pre-defined agenda?

Does the fact that a LIE is being taught as fact bother you???

You should have wrote false and a paragraph justifying this position. Many professors will accept this, they prefer confrontational students they disagree with who are willing to engage in arguments than students who just don't care.

does talking about a theory = being a big proponent of a theory?

it was a on a scantron, no way to write out a justfication

no, but when she said that when she was writing her doctoral thesis and she said she was a conflict theorist and her instructor was a functionalist....it really apparent what she is
