I sure hope your kids don't tell you what they will be asked to read and study in college- but I'm sure you would try to make a big deal of it.<quoted text>I am a TINA. I will respond by saying that I will fight for the rights of AA people. They are my family. I'm not on the fence. I am white but all my life has been dedicated to my brothers and sisters who are of black descent. I disagree with the test or any other thing that may imply that my family is blue gum, handkerchief head, chitterling slinging, big lip, sagging, slave, scratch ankle, flat foot, pubic hair headed, slant head, burnt, doping, drunk, militant, trouble.making, non working, criminal, raping, and any other stereotype. It is wrong and I will say so.
Fact is, this was an AP Advanced Placement "College Level" Course, in college, they are not "teaching" you, they are making you think independently. Kids now a days are sheltered so much they have no idea what to expect when in college b/c they can't believe what they are hearing.
This really goes for students who grew up hard core southern baptist and they take a religion class that totally blows them out of the water.
