Quarter: Winter 2020
Grade: A-

If I had to take a shot every time Robin said the word “capitalism,” I’d be hammered by the 10 minute mark. It really felt like Robin, a self-described “Marxist surrealist feminist who is not just anti something but pro-emancipation, pro-liberation,” tried using this class to tell students that capitalism is to blame for everything wrong in the world. He argued that communal societies, such as Native American societies pre-colonization, were basically heaven on earth. Although we would all be equal in communal societies, he fails to realize that we would all be equally poor! He also doesn’t understand that forcing people to work for “the betterment of society” (working for nothing) kills the drive to innovate and is a form of slavery itself.

The group project is a joke, but the Midterm and Final essays require some real reading and critical thought. Professor Kelley is a star professor. He's extremely clear in lecture and thinks outside of the box. I'm sad I only found him my last quarter, I would have liked to take more classes with him.

I really admire Mr. Kelly for his passion of AA History. He always taught the class with so much enthusiasm and it made the class better. We had a midterm paper and a final paper. There was a lot of reading but they were interesting. I would most definitely take him again.
