And this is why college is a load of crap these days

You put yourself into debt equivalent to a small house for this?

Additionally, the seminar will discuss the “various ways these populations can show up to class/work and be received differently,” with the intent of helping students to “identify pathways to liberation for underrepresented populations in the classroom and in the workplace through authenticity.”\ 
Other intended goals for the teach-in will be to help students “understand how cultural appearance and fashion trends intersect” while gaining “an understanding of how perceptions of traditional and current fashion trends can be oppressive to some individuals.”

So, to recap:  "White" philosophers (like Kant, or Heidegger, or you know, just about EVERY PHILOSOPHER OUT THERE) are no longer taught in philosophy.  Shakespeare is no longer taught in English Literature.  American History is no longer taught in History.  But identifying "pathways to liberation for underrepresented populations" is taught.

What an absolute load of steaming horse shit.  Fuck paying for that worthless crap, you couldn't pay me to sit through it!

More and more, unless we're dealing with hard sciences, a college degree is worth exactly zero to the world, and in many cases, actually hurts your chances of getting a job.
