Quarter Taken: Fall 2020
COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.
Submitted Dec. 16, 2020
Grade Received: A+

Omar was the worst professor I have had in my three years at UCLA. He is the most unequipped, unprepared, and disorganized professor. I truly believe he does not have the readiness to be a professor. I was extremely excited to take this serving learning class and give back to my community and learn about organizing. Instead, I got a professor that canceled class frequently, went on rants, imposed his beliefs on students, and shammed students if they supported a certain political party or had certain religious beliefs. Omar did not follow the syllabus which is the contract he makes with students. You could ask me what I learned in this class and nothing would be related to what he points out in the syllabus. Lectures were a waste of time and instead of having midterms and finals, he gave us a movie to watch and respond to. I was never able to express how my service learning went and got placed on my site during week 6 of the quarter since he was extremely disorganized and unprepared. I felt very attacked during lectures and Omar made sure to impose his beliefs in every one of them. He bashed the Christian faith every chance he got. Saying microaggressions back in forth and could not stand other students deferring opinions. He once went on a rant that no students should ever donate to Christian organizations because all they try to do is convert people and abuse them, which I think is such a polarized belief. He wanted to impose witchcraft on all students (since it's what he practices) and his practices of self-care. We learned about his mental health problems, HIV positive, and the depression he was going through. Even though I believe these are important topics to talk about I do not feel this entire quarter and every lecture was the time and place, Omar made sure to make all lectures about that. Most of the time I felt I was coming to a class to hear complaining instead of learning. This class was an extreme joke and anyone could pass with an A+ with their eyes closed. Omar treated us like kindergarten and I am sure my 6th-grade brother gets harder assignments than I did this quarter. I really hope no other student experiences what I had to go through this quarter with this professor. I was deeply disappointed and hope he gets fired from teaching this class and instead get assigned to teaching Gender studies` since that is all he preached about all quarter. I feel like my education and experience at UCLA were cheated and if I could ask for a full refund I would.
