Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted April 15, 2014 Grade Received: N/A

What a sorry excuse for a professor.

She has an English degree but doesn't even speak and write proper English. She is very disorganized, and her lectures consisted mainly of her trying to get around technical difficulties to play some slideshows that looked like they were put together by a 4th grader.

There is quite a bit of assigned reading, and the readings aren't even interesting like the readings in AA20. It's mostly pretentious, overly wordy, ramblings of people who get off on denouncing the U.S. as a White capitalist regime hell-bent on enslaving Asian Americans. One of these readings was written by the professor herself.

That being said, if you manage to slog through the readings, some of them do have substance underneath all the pretentious crap cluttering every sentence. There was even one short story that was actually entertaining.

If possible, take Professor Bascara. He is well spoken, well organized, and intelligent, and can make a bs class like this somewhat bearable. Professor Burns, on the other hand, does not speak proper English, is disorganized, and is, well.. you know. I guess that's the difference between an education from Columbia and one from UMass.

Overall, the class is pretty easy as long as you do the readings because there are pop quizzes. There are two papers and one big project which are all just bs-fests.

2/10 would not take again.
