    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).

    From what internet site did she buy her diploma?

    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.
