Fall 2019 - A quick unnecessary update after my graduation: I am Asian, not white. Thanks to Brown and other incompetent instructors, I pushed myself to my limit and graduated with two majors in two years while receiving the Magna Cum Laude. Looking back to this comment, I wish to put more sarcasm to better use! Upon farewell, I want to share a few things with those who are with me, and for those who are not: 1. If you have done nothing wrong, DO NOT apologize. 2. Force yourself to take hard classes, you will learn much more and it worths every penny of your tuition. EASY CLASSES ARE EASY FOR REASONS. 3. If you found yourself in a position where no one appreciates, think through it twice and interrogate it, thoroughly. If you still have found it right, stick with it and voice for it. DO NOT BACK DOWN, or at least DO NOT LIE TO YOURSELF. Guess I will never come back to this site again. Why Brown should give a damn about my comment? Why should those people who feverishly enjoy cutting corners care? Why should those who blindly submitted their "freedom-to" to an ideology which they do not even know what does entail? They don't, they just don't, yet they will never do. And welcome to the reality, lads. Ciao. Original post: First of all, I would like to openly applaud for the "Oct. 6th, 2019" comment on the forum, for his/her courage to be the dissident, amidst this dissident-unfriendly status quo. Hereby, on this precious occasion, I would like to share some of my enshrined subjective experience objectively, in a timely manner, and amidst this delicate nature. Abiding by the first amendment that we used to be proud of, I would like to conjure my fallow peers, regardless of what political propensity you have: you read, you think, you choose. I took Professor. Karida L Brown's Sociology 180A this fall. Everything does appear roseate, Professor Brown demonstrated her cuddly facade and denounced that she cared about everyone's success. However, the brutal truth might be that she only cares about her "supporters", while leaving her dissidents a cold shoulder. That is not out of my expectations. Soon I realized that 90% of my peers have some extent of political pre-supposition in this class, and concord with professor Brown. No one questioned her inappropriate commentary(politicized, or just not right), everyone seems to agree with her with full consent, and of course, she was delighted about that. What if we take a look at other sessions? Also in this fall semester, I took Sociology 101 and Philosophy 100A (I have two majors). In these two classes, we had a great amount of debate, questions, so long and so forth. Why is this class a far cry comparing to others? The only rational explication for this situation is, perchance, due to Professor. Brown's extravagant teaching skills par excellence. The conjuncture that I luckily realized what kind of person she is and her per se duplicity, was the grade and the paraphernalia of the reflection paper. With a similar confrontation just like the latest commentator had, or even worse, I got an F- for my reflection paper after a month I have submitted my work. Everything I did, was abiding by her rubric, despite the fact that I wrote a mild criticism to the quote which author Charles Mills wrote. Shocked and frustrated, she left me a concise comment, which was "come to see me with the explanation of the grade". Fair, fair enough. I have a firm belief that UCLA as "the top 1 public university in the U.S", all professors are judging students with their demiurgic consciences as if the Samson in Israel. Professor. Brown, should be one of them. should she? Not quite so for two reasons: First, she allegedly purported during the lecture, that she will grade everyone's work by the end of the submitted week. Her procrastination directly caused me to drop this class by the last day of the dropping date WITH A W. I do understand that we all have our own business to tackle, but to say the least, I will not show my fabricated zealousness when I cannot facilitate what I have promised. Second, to use fait accompli as the staunchest evidence, I have received an A+ and an A- for my other two classes, also two A- in my summer session, I am afraid that my writing expertise will not evaporate in a jiffy. With a score like 48/100, Professor. Brown should have offered me an adequate explanation based on the courtesy, or grading the paper on time as she has promised, which neither of them came into fruition, unfortunately. By the end of my "meaningless, but trying to make it a bit meaningful" comment, I would like to spare my last sentences by asking the professor. Brown a few questions: First, do you care about your students? if you don't, please do not demonstrate the inconsistency. Second, if you do care, are you caring for the students who are coming from a financially or socially inferior background, while neglecting the others? Last but must not be the least, if you treat one group differently from the others which sprouted from ex nihilo, as the dictum goes "one good turn deserves another", may I treat you differently, comparing to other professors? shall I call this "a reverse classism/racism"? I thought this class was supposed to end racism. In the end, I deeply understand some of you may incur your indisposition, that originated from the confiscated sense of belonging which manifested in irrationality, will dislike my comment. I am hereby stating that everything I have said above is true. We are all engulfed by subjective facts, you and me. University, as the final tender land for impartial knowledge, I should have the bounden duty to remain clean from political trivials that resulted in implicit discrimination. If this is not inequality, not biased and exorbitantly opinionated, then what are these? If Professor Brown saw this comment, please email me "for the explanation of this comment". I also do have discontentment with her lecture contents, but I both lack of stomach and time to write since I have to file a complaint and submerge myself with philosophy dignitaries. The purpose of this comment is not because I dislike Professor Brown personally, but due to my conscientiousness and further betterment of UCLA. Till next time, Fiat Lux.
