Naw, eastern Oregon. I've encountered plenty of ignorant things, but I guess I'm just used to more subtle racism and privilege. I was so not prepared for them to go all out and open with it like that. I was shocked the teacher let it go on because he is generally very aware about things like that and there's no way I was the only one feeling so targeted and uncomfortable. Like, it's one thing to have an open and honest discussion about race, but it's a totally different animal when the white students are just so overpowering and the teacher wasn't even really mediating at all. He would just say "next question" when it got a bit much, but he didn't actually add anything educational that would help the ignorant students understand. I think he wanted the POC to educate them and it was all just a hot mess.
Like, there was no lesson at the end. It was pretty much just the Let The White Kids Air Their Grievances While The POC Sit Here Awkwardly show.
That sounds horrible, I would have dropped the class. Of course, I only take Anthro classes as electives so that might have not been an option for you ...
The professor should have called them out on it. The Anthropology classes here at my university are pretty awesome. Both that I've taken so far had GREAT teachers who you end up feeling are like an extension of your family to some degree because they really cared about their students and didn't teach solely because they knew enough facts to get through their lesson plan. They wanted to make a difference, and often did. And it was the opposite case from what you had - mostly it was the white kids who were uncomfortable and kept their mouth shut because these professors would call ANYONE out on the slightest display of ethnocentricism or ignorance. There was never an instance like what you described because the professors wouldn't allow it, which made the courses much more rewarding (unless you are one of those white students who take anthropology classes as a way relieving white guilt, or privilege, etc.). Hopefully you don't have this experience again and you end up having one more like mine. There have to be some professors at your school who share a similar teaching philosophy. If you don't do it already, check out upcoming professors on RateMyProfessors.com before registering for their class. Sometimes you don't always get the most accurate reviews, but even still, sometimes you can get the information you need from them.
On the related note of bad classroom/professor experiences, though, this guy spoke as a guest lecturer in one of my classes and teaches at my school: Check this out.
