How not to get an “A”

Font Size:

When you sign up for a college class on evolution, you might expect that your professor is going to profess stuff about, y’know, evolution. But this week, one Florida Atlantic University student decided she’d had enough of it and gave her prof a piece of her mind. From the FAU University Press:

Associate Professor Stephen M. Kajiura was reviewing with his evolution class in GS 120 for a midterm when FAU student Jonatha Carr interrupted him: “How does evolution kill black people?” she asked. Kajiura attempted to explain that evolution doesn’t kill anyone.

And then, Carr became violent.

A fellow classmate, Rachel Bustamante, was sitting behind Carr prior to her outburst and noticed she had been avoiding looking at the professor until 11:35 a.m. — that’s when she snapped. The classmate reported that Kajiura was discussing attraction between peacocks when Carr raised her hand to ask her question about evolution. She asked it four times, and became increasingly upset each time Kajiura’s answer failed to satisfy her.

Let’s not jump to conclusions. Maybe we’re not getting the whole story. Let’s hear her out.

WARNING: Foul language, racial epithets, and other such scientific jargon

Well, that’s one way to do it. Back in my day, we’d bring an apple.
