New Year, Same Casual Racism

| Learning | July 25, 2016

(This is my second year in a row I have this particular teacher, and the third time in total. I had already left her class once because I couldn’t stand her, and I regarded it as a miracle that I remained in her class the second time. This occurs around March, as she calls the roll.)

Teacher: “[Asian Student #1]?”

(This student is absent. She continues on.)

Teacher: “[Asian Student #2]?”

(This student is also absent.)

Teacher: “Hmm. Must be Chinese New Year.”

Other Student: “What the h***?”

Teacher: “Oh, come off it.”

(Needless to say, I didn’t remain in her class again.)
