Please shut up until you have something new to say.
Backstory: I am now going back to college, and all-in-all it’s been pretty good. All As and Bs, which is much better than I ever did in high school or college the first time I went.
I am now in a really easy English class and on top of having an incredibly dull, nerdish, uncharismatic teacher, one fella in the class is bugging the hell out of me.
I can’t tell whether he’s black or hispanic, but every time he opens his mouth the same thing invariable interrupt our class: his continued use of the phrase, “Naa mean?” and the absolute belief that there are only two kinds of people, The Man and The Victim.
Every subject the professor brings up is subjected to Pony’s skewed perspective on someone always being “put down” or the unfairness of the courts. He complains away about how certain laws - governing just about anything - only serve The Man and mean nothing the the people. Criminals, most notable drug dealers and thieves, are victims of the system not looking out for them. Profiling by the law is the biggest problem facing our inner cities, displayed by his saying - in every damn class - that “If it were me doin’ that, I’d be in jail, naa mean?”
He seems like a smart guy and he’s nice enough, but I’m reall fucking sick of hearing his “disinfranchised minority” schtick.
Christ, man, we get it. Now shut the fuck up. Are you here in college to learn or as a forum for your angst?
Holy shit, I wish I could just ignore him, but the professor has no balls to stand up to a student with so forceful a personality.
It’s sad and it’s annoying. I’m just glad this is an excelerated summer course, because I don’t think I could do a full semester with this going on every effing day.
