Notice how the faculty left and cut off our mics without any discussion.

Y'all just interrupted an ongoing lecture and used a private classroom setting to address your agenda without the consent of the students who actually paid the tuition to take the class, and now y'all start to blame the school and the faculties for protecting the students' right to learn???????? What makes you think that you are so self righteous and entitled to speak in front of the whole class and take away our right of learning?
I don't even know where to begin with this... They wanted to do a *TWO MINUTE* introduction, which they had discussed with the faculty beforehand. You wanna do some calculations and figure out how much of your tuition that two minutes would cost so you can tell daddy where to send the bill to? This is on the faculty, not RAR.
Consider for a moment that they considered that, that this was not a snap decision, and that they still decided it had to be done anyway. Do they look like they're having fun? They are making their point in front of most of the freshmen where they know they will be heard after being snubbed by the faculty. Also consider that your education should be measured not in time/money but mental growth/money, and that short interruptions like this could easily start conversations that have the potential to inspire more intellectual growth in the long run than a year's worth of outdated Eurocentric hum lectures.
This has nothing to do with whatever they wanted to say or do. To interrupt a lecture in a classroom setting is in serious violation of academic freedom and is just unthoughtful and wrong. Can't y'all wait till the very end of the lecture to give your 2-minute introduction rather then rudely cut a professor's lecturing???
Seerat Jhajj oh yea a book written by babylonians in the Middle East is indeed "Eurocentric". Also Reed has agreed to reform the curriculum and add classics from other civilizations. Or maybe we should just stop reading all the classics and ancient literature since they inevitably include racist and sexist shit. Right? 🙃
the fact that you think that the classics are above criticism (or that critique highlighting the sexism and racism inherent in creating and propagating what society considers to be 'classical' is somehow useless or silly in your eyes) because they are "beautifully written" really highlights why we need to question how Reed teaches HUM110. As students, it is our right to ask questions and demand the change that we want from our education.
