Feeling oppressed?

I had this thing on my mind and I was wondering I could get your insight on it. I am currently in a college level LAS class and the class consists of taking these artifacts (speeches, addresses, movements- something man made) and breaking them down and discussing each in detail. This worked well when we discussed Cesar Chavez and Milton Friedman- we elaborated on points of views and actually talked about it as a class, we really got into the subjects. These past 2 class periods we have been discussing the Gay Liberation Front: Manifesto- except we haven't at all. He googled "gay liberation front" and found some video of the Stonewall riots we watched for 30 min, and then after the class talked about police brutality instead of the Stonewall Riot. So I wait to see what next class may be like, see if we really get into the manifesto- and it's the same thing. He just googled "gay liberation front" and looked through our college's library database for "gays". We never discussed the manifesto at all, which I find crazy because the manifesto breaks itself down; Family, Church, Media, Words, Law, Physical Violence, etc. Not to mention all the current world subjects going on in Sochi, Michael Sam, that can be applied to these concepts- concepts that may aid in educating younger generations. Nobody is paying attention to him, and he has no mandatory assignment on the subject. Am I crazy for thinking this is crazy?

College teaches you to aggressively conquer every assignment they throw at you so you will be prepared to successfully conquer every obstacle when you enter the business world......quickly; and with ease and confidence
.
This is an exercise in the formula for success
.
So you have identified a problem and this gives you an opportunity to display leadership and present your remedy to the class
