Very repetitive. Way too much reading. Horribly done lectures in which he reads his slides verbatim. Ends up being a class about African American Vernacular instead of a general linguistic anthro class. Though, it is definitely very easy. Don't have to do the readings and can still get an A no problem. Honestly though, He could have taught us the concepts that it took him a quarter to teach in 2-3 weeks. Bad class that I wouldn't recommend to anyone. He's a cool guy and I like him a lot. I likely got an A in the class too. But seriously, avoid this class if you can.
Prof tries too hard to be cool. Apart from that, there are too many reading assignments that are coupled with the stupidest assignments known to UCLA's campus: 3-2-1s, in which (for every single reading assignment) you must provide 3 important facts, 2 interesting facts, and 1 question. WTF? I thought I was done with this high school BS. If you are interested in taking a class alllllll about racial inequality in America, go for it. Otherwise, this class is boring and repetitive, with a long arduous midterm graded by obnoxious TAs. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. ever.
