Berkley Students Demand Take Home Test

Apparently not studying for a test results in rallying the troops, staging a protest, and citing white privilege. Plus, they might as well disrupt the kids who did study and actually wanted to take the test, who are apparently privileged too. I hope the underprivileged fail.

I read about this early last week. They hit Harley Shaiken's class. I don't know why they'd want to do that to him, as he's probably more sympathetic to them than other academics would be.

Shaiken is a reliable "get" when it comes to news stories that need an expert in his particular field to opine on whatever the issue is that the journalist is writing about, by the way.

Dang straight. They need to learn that they can't throw a temper tantrum and get their way - though it appears it has worked so far.

The student responded: "I'm trying to take my test." Another protester snapped back: "We're trying to live our lives ... white boy with privilege."

Wow. I am not a violent person, but If some racist ass hat snapped something like that at me, I would probably be inclined to beat the absolutely shit out of them.

I’d have failed the protesters and guaranteed at least a passing grade to all the kids who were there prepared to take the test.

Interesting. I'm a college prof. If a student emailed me and said they were experiencing significant emotional turmoil and wanted to take the test a different day, I'd most likely let them. If a bunch of them pulled this stunt, I'd be quite unsympathetic, as they're affecting so many other students.

Calling it white supremacy is bullshit.

I have taught for the last 10 years, part time. I would remind them they get the grade they earn. End of story. My syllabus says if we have no prior agreement for an alternate time to take the exam, they get a zero.

Real emotional turmoil or the BS they were citing?

It’s an ethnic studies class. Who fucking cares if they take the test or not?

The College failed these students.

They didn't give them a failing grade.

They failed to educate them.

You’re wrong.

This is exactly what the college taught them to do. Where do you think they got these ideas about privilege and “students of color”?

Where do you think they got the notion they are deserving of special treatment?

This is a perfect rendition of what this school set out to produce.

They just never thought their product would be turned inward.

Thank you. And seeing my post in your quote I realized how poorly it was written. Thank you for not mocking me.

Maybe. But only if she would stop talking, which she wouldn't, because "you have to listen to us!"

Uh, no. We don't.

Young people have always been misguided, especially at Berzerkeley. But these folks are really fucked up.

The tragic part is that otherwise qualified kids were denied enrollment to make room for these degenerates. What a waste.
