Okihiro, Gary Silver_nugget
Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could take ethnic studies? NONE! He/she would be awoken to the racist white power structures that are put into place to control him/her because of the color of his/her fur. That woodchuck would reject all capitalist modes of production that oppresses its peoples and it would cry at the beauty of its empowerment. My brother/sister, Woodchuck, would then return to his/her roots by underwater basket weaving and being critical of the white devil.

Take this class if:

-You hate whitey and/or "white power structures".
-You have lots of extra money to waste on useless classes.
-You absolutely adore Marx.
-You hate whitey and would like to yell at him/her for a semester.
-You need a global core class that requires a minimal time investment.


A simple midterm, take-home final (dependent on your skin color, ranging from a poem or song to a 10 page paper for whitey) and weekly article responses.
