    May I suggest you each buy your professors, “To My Professor: Student Voices for Great College Teaching” by Michigan State University’s Journalism class. Each of the topics you’ve discussed are covered in the book.

    What’s the point of this section? To just show outrage? To complain in a drawn out way?

    Why does it matter that your professor was straight or white? Why does someone’s “identity” dictate what they are allowed to think, feel and express? Isn’t that the opposite of everything intersectionality is supposedly trying to fight against?

    Great work! I applaud Mark! These incidents of racism are deplorable.
