I'm asking this because I'm about to go back to college and the professor I'm about to take a class with won't let me bring my audio recorder to class. The reason I think this professor is black (most likely) is because I've looked up this professor on a professor review site and heard that this professor is hard to work with and doesn't do a good job teaching. The reason I need to bring in a recorder is because of my disability. Most of the students complained about reading hundreds of pages (you're in college not elementary school) and the work being hard. The only thing is that if the professor doesn't write things on the board the first day of class I'm going to immediately switch the class (I'm a visual learner).

I also remember a time when I was at college and this black woman was so mean it wasn't a joke. I was trying to change classes and she had an "F U" attitude.

But the thing is that I asked another teacher (who's white and male) if I could bring in my recorder and he said I was allowed to.
I'm not warm toward white people but at lot of the time they treat me better than people of my own race (of either sexes). But there's other times when a lot of white people either ignore me or might be racist.

Is this why a lot of black men are going for white women or women of other races ?

Since you have a disability that the use of the audio recorder would help make learning easier with, I would first approach your academic office or the office of student disabilities and ask for the accommodation to use the audio recorder. If you have a reasonable accommodation request that is approved by the college, well, the professor can't refuse then!

As to why this professor is being so difficult, it might not be a matter of race. I've had issues with professors/bosses of my own race who gave me a rough way to go and it can be a matter of them not fully understanding the reasons why you need this accommodation. Another reason could be that the individual professor is just a "tough" professor--like some of the ones I had--who has the sink-or-swim mentality. It's unfortunate that there are some of these professors with this old school mindset out there, but I guess it still happens.

A third reason, and to be very blunt, is that the professor is very hard to work with as the reviews have said, and is an ass. I didn't have too many of these when I was in college, but did have a few who were pretty memorable...particularly the one who wanted to fail me when my aunt passed away and I was one day late on a paper because my flight got delayed overnight and the rental car broke down.

I don't pretend to know it all (I'm not a teenager anymore when I THOUGHT I knew it all) but I will say that I have met a lot of great people of both sexes and all races and have met a few jerks of both sexes and several races. Being nice/considerate to others is an equal opportunity trait; being obnoxious is also unfortunately an equal opportunity personality trait.

I think that men/women of all races probably date/marry outside of their race for several reasons: it's more socially accepted now, and of course of love. A neighbor that my husband and I are good friends with is black and married a white man. She grew up in an all-black neighborhood in Chicago, didn't really care much for whites in general, and never thought she'd date a white guy, let alone marry one. She just happened to meet the right guy, and at that point race didn't matter.

Women are hard to deal with PERIOD. This would explain the ease you've experienced with the White MALE instructor. You cannot compare a White man to a Black women. I'll accept your apology later.

Yes, That's exactly why!

In every walk of life, every where you go, regardless of who or what you are, black women are hard to deal with. Black women even have a hard time dealing with each other.

They are angry for no reason. Completely bitter, and lack the ability to just communicate without some predetermined bitterness toward you.

I had 1 black female professor and i learned to never have another one again. Her attitude was horrible, her methods were terrible, everyone hated her, her tests consisted of material she never went over, and she gave 5 mins breaks every hour in a 3 hour class. 5 mins.

SMH. Yes, black women are hard to deal with. I mean look at topix, they're even hard to deal with here. Out of all the women on this forum, black women are the most sour to deal with.

Exactly. The time when I wanted to change my class the black woman acted like I was her worst enemy (and I am black) and that I raped her or her mother or that something so traumatic happened to her that she decided to get mad at me. I've talked to a few white girls at college and for the most part they're actually on average nicer than the black girls (and better looking). I remember a time in class when these black girls claimed they didn't read books (most black people don't read period but in America most people don't read period of all races). Aren't they in college they're supposed to read books. That's the main reason I'd rather be gay than date a black woman. It's easier to be gay than be with them.

I remember having a black female professor the only thing she did for me was let me take my test with the disability department. Other than that she was very closed minded. She wasn't open to new ideas but was trying to make the class accept homosexuality (I'm atheist) complaining about America being too conservative (even though America is pretty much a racist country) always mentioning "God" (my college is a public community college where they shouldn't allow religion to take place or encourage religious thinking) claiming that Obama was being criticized because he's "black" (even though he's mixed and she said he was a black man which obviously means she believes anything white people will tell her) and numerous things too much to list.

Black prof grade more harder compared to white because they WORKED much harder to reach the position and also KEEP working much harder to REMAIN in the position. IT'S TOTALLY FALSE TO SAY BLACK WOMEN/PROF DON'T DO GOOD JOB. Most LAZY students are used to giving bad reviews to prof who GRADE hard vs prof that DON'T work hard.

If you've a disability and you explained to them in the proper way, most prof will have to accommodate you as per college/University policies.

I didn't say that black professors don't deal with racism. F*ck one day I might want to be a black professor, but they (black females) treat their man like shit all the time even when they deal with racism. I remember one time I was defending this dark a$$ b!itch and she still acted ghetto in front of the racist white people and insulted me. No other race of women do this but black women that's why no one wants them not even their own men. Again I'd rather be gay then date/marry them. And now matter what she most likely won't let me bring in my recorder. I'm either going to have to take a class at my high school or find a later class. I already have my schedule perfected so that I don't have to waste time waiting in between classes. And no I wasn't trying to hit on her this is just an example of how black women act towards anybody.

That's nice, you should become a prof, than may be you can understand in "their" own shoe.

If a black man mistreat me, I'll think about that as individual problem and move on. In fact, I had very difficult experience with an Asian Prof, so I had to take SAME course from different university(and transfer) to complete my graduation. It was a nightmare but I've seen some kind Asian prof too.

You sound like a troll at the end and with the title but I will help you anyway since you are another college BM like myself.
You have a disability and she won't let you use a recorder? Lol what a bitch she is. Not all of them are bad, she is probably just one of the lonely unnatractive ones, they have that in EVERY race. Just dust it off.

Get an android phone phone and get the recorder app, it is quiet and I use it on Mondays after I am done with my graveyard shift which is from 1-9am and I am high off 5 hour energy drinks by the time class starts, which is at 11am. LOL!

Work smarter and not harder

Oh and one more thing, try to get to know a teacher before you start classes. All you need to do is have a quick 2 minute discussion with them and in those 2 minutes you can decide whether you want to drop it or not.

not all BW are like this. I too have experienced this in college there is this one counselor I try to avoid because she is so rude(she is a bw) she rolls her eyes when I ask her questions. I just wanna snatch that wig off when I see her. My boyfriend at the time said she always smiled at him and was polite like she had a crush or sumthin. I dont know why she is like that but everytime I go in her office she is very short and heated like Im wasting her time. Isnt that her job to help me? There is another couselor like that but she is latina but she was very rude also.

ON the other hand there are these other three BW couselors that are very helpful and give me more than enough help to guide me on my way through college. I dont feel like I have to rush with my questions or I dont feel like Im bothering them. They are so sweet and kind. So I guess it depends on the individual, when someone is rude like that she I just move on and try to avoid them at all costs.

What a whining wimp, date out, you do not need to be gay, no-one is stopping you and I hope you get a trail of bw teaching your ass and them giving you your rightfully deserved mark in life, F for failure.

Okay that was harsh but you sound like a wimp, just don't consult with bw anymore, 1 less black male hindering what already is .....well I won't go on, don't want my obsessive fan club getting butthurt anymore than they already are.

All I am saying is switch class and don't fraternize with us anymore, simple clown, did I help you!
