The bell hooks article was, in my opinion, one of the more interesting articles that we read. I am becoming more interested in issues dealing with racism after taking a class a race relations this year. I feel that there are a lot of problems in our society because of racism that are just ignored and therefore, allowed to continue. hooks wrote about her struggles in different school situations and the lack of care her professors displayed toward her. This wasn't strictly based on race, but more on the fact that they had no passion to teach and didn't really care whether or not the students actually learned anything. I feel like this is a lot like many of the professors here at the U. They just throw the information at you and don't care if you actually gain knowledge or not. They're here for their own purposes and that is their main priority. I don't really understand why the U is supposed to be such a highly rated school if it's not one that's going to benefit the students and teach them.
