My friend Alaina, is majoring in education. She was reading her textbook when all of a sudden she busted out laughing. I asked her what was funny and she says, "OMG my book is talking about blacks and jews!" I basically thought, "What the fuck?" She then showed me the book and this is what it said:
Teachers' comments and behaviors often blindly reinforce this gender divide, yet if applied to race, religion, or ethnicity, teachers would quickly regain their vision. You will search long and hard to find a teacher who announce: "We will have a spelling bee today to see who will be the champion spellers, Jews or Christians!" Or imagine, "Good morning blacks and whites." How about, "You two Hispanics are causing too much disruption so I am placing a Native American between you!" Although sensitive to religious, ethnic, or racial affronts, we seem rather oblivious to gender comments. This is a situation with serious consequences.
How can you not laugh at that!? That was the most epic thing of the day. I'll probably be thinking of that all day and I'll start laughing.. People will probably look at me weird, oh well.
