Damn. You ever read the reviews of a professor and like 99.9% talk about how garbage the professor is? But then you go on 'my class planner' and find out that that's your only option for the class?
Seriously thought these reviews were just over exaggerated or something, but y'all this professor really does SUCK big time. This class gives the chicano department a bad name. Why does the department think bringing this celebrity to campus is such an innovative idea?? Jesus, even I could teach this class better. Only focus was: 1) Trump (pretty sure he himself said he was obsessed with him 2)CHINAAAA and 3) Trade wars (which no one had a single clue what he was talking about).
Not only is his teaching TERRIBLE, but just imagine all the freshmen kissing his butt by laughing at his "jokes" and buttering him up.
Aside from his teaching, he was incredibly unorganized and had a huge lack of miscommunication, to the extent that even my TA said a lot of the things he would do/ say, they did not agree with.
He would always talk about "me me me" "Oh they love me in China" (dude, how is that possible when there are 1 BILLION PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE), "Oh i'm going on this trip for this conference blah blah but don't worry I'll be back"- NO, you are a PROFESSOR and your LECTURES should be your priority. But of course, this self-centered man, who went off to say he's given speeches in front of border patrol who BEGGED him (yeah, he said that) to come and gave him a STANDING OVATION (*insert 'and everybody clapped' meme*)
Also, shoutout to my TA ROSA, who is an absolute Godsend and I assure I would have gone crazy in this class if it wasn't for her.
Avoid this professor at all costs. Not worth your time. No wonder only 1/4 of the class goes now.

I took Chicano 119 and 122 with Professor Hinajosa-Ojeda. He really cares about his student's learning but is also really unorganized. For both of these courses, I was more interested in working on a creative piece so I grouped up with the film group that addresses issues within the undocumented population in LA. Readings assigned for his class are posed on CCLE so no need to purchase books. There are about 4 writing assignments for this class and one big final project. No tests.

Sadly, this was the worst class I have taken at UCLA. Professor Hinojosa is very nice, obviously brilliant, and quite approachable and I got an A in the class... but it was still terrible. As a previous poster noted, he uses slides that were evidently prepared for other purposes and I'm pretty sure that we only saw two powerpoint presentations the entire quarter. The class was also supposed to be held for two hours on Tuesday and Thursday but for some reason he decided to hold it for three hours only on Tuesday, causing about half the class to miss an hour of lecture every week because of conflicts with other classes (but to be honest, they didn't miss a thing). The class is extremely disorganized, our "midterm" was due the last day of class, and there was basically no direction for the final paper which was 30 pages long and due almost a week after the quarter ended which was nice in a sense but also postponed the freedom of break for an extra week. I did well in the class so I guess maybe it's easy to do well, but I did go to class every week and I spent forever on the final paper, so I wouldn't exactly call it an easy A. I wouldn't recommend this class to anyone, even though Professor Hinojosa is a great guy.
